Anyone taken film rights? It should be a Hindi movie, that's for sure. Just with some added sophistication and mind madness! Salman Rusdie successfully keeps readers at the edge of their seats in this Bold and the Beautiful meets the Indian Brady Bunch family saga described entirely by the youngest member of the Zogioby CLAN if we can call it that. There are some things which are bizarre,such as the Moor's aging. But there are many descriptions and lines in the book that can touch any soul. It teaches that life should never be taken for granted, the Moor is the best example, he lived every year like they were two, and he had still accomplished so much in his short life. ONe of my favourite lines is "defeated love is still a treasure,and those who choose lovelessness have won no victory at all!" tells me to take risks in life, so not be so afraid of what bad might happen. to just LIVE. For those who enjoy a family story engulfed by love, jealousy, money, corruption, insanity and art this is the story for you. ENJOY!
