I bought this book because Salman Rushdie is a world renowned writer and this is a very popular book. This is my first Salman Rushdie book and I am finding his style of writing very tiring. After 150 pages, reading this book has become a chore. I know Indian history and can relate to almost all the historical events referenced so far. I would not recommend this book for someone who does not know about India's history of the times around her independence.
I hope the book will get more interesting later on. If it does and I like it better than I like it now; I'll write another review.
So far it is two stars for me.
