Midnight's Children (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.335

Midnight’s Children is a novel by Salman Rushdie. It deals with India’s change from British rule to independence and touches upon the themes of the partition of British India.

Summary of the Book

Saleem Sinai is born at Midnight, on India’s first Independence day. He has telepathic powers, and soon discovers that all children born at midnight have similar powers. Saleem assembles a Midnight Children's Conference to reflect on the issues India faced in its early statehood. As a telepathic conduit, Saleem brings hundreds of geographically disparate children into contact and discovers their gifts. The magical realism in the novel examines liberalism and recalls indigenous Indian culture. It runs headlong into the moment of the emergency and shows how the children deal with the episode.

skewed

though this is one of the best fiction work I have came across. I dont think very highly of rushdie. story and writer's narration becomes less intriguing when he is not being honest. salam rushdie writes what west wants to read.
he had been hard on the League, gandhis, pakistanis but he somehow restrain himself from speaking about the attrocities of british raj. one cant help wonder why is that. demon after all has many heads.

Boring for me..

The pace of the story is really slow..dragging.. I don't understand why the author had to start from the life of his grandfather to tell his story..expected something intriguing judging by the fame the book had got but was somewhat disapointed..

Tough read

Read few pages, too many digressions. I bought this as it was featured on must-read books for MBA prep. Well it would help very much in vocab building. It might take some more time for me to finish this one. But its indeed engrossing!!

Surprisingly...and little aching

What to say? Because too much of confusion is there but it leads through the India of 40's to 70's.
I am just 18 to read this may be this would be the reason to cause much of confusion. But worth reading...
