3.0 out of 5 stars Difficult, but Im glad I stayed with it, 14 April 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Midnight's Children (Paperback)
Im only 16 and wanted to see if I would handle a Rushdie piece of work. I grabbed this book at the airport before a trip to India and was at once surprised and exasperated. I did find it difficult and had to re-read many passages to try and comprehend what Rushdie was saying. But the idea, writing and ending were superb and Im glad I stayed with it, although as this has been described as one of Rushdie's "easier" novels to read I think I'll stay away from him for a few years yet!

Very valid review - and good to see you contributing your views. There were no Amazon reviews when i was 16 (there was no Amazon!) and i think your review will help guide other younger readers.
