Midnight's Children (Paperback) Price: Rs. 369

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.

About Salman Rushdie

Sir Ahmed Salman Rushdie is an Indian British novelist best known for writing: the Satanic Verses, The Moor's Last Sigh, The Enchantress of Florence, and The Ground Beneath Her Feet.

Rushdie was appointed Commandeur de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres of France and knighted for services to literature in the Queen's Birthday Honours. He has also won the Booker Prize for Fiction, Booker of Bookers, The Best of the Booker, Whitbread Novel Award, and the Writers' Guild of Great Britain Award for Children's Fiction.

story is good, but not the quality of book (page material and binding)

no need to talk about the skill of Rushdie but the quality of book (material wise), published by Random House, is not at all good. paper quality is like rough copy of Rs 15-20, even binding is not good. after one reading, it will be difficult to use this book again as papers start coming out! so ins… (View complete review)

A lesson in story-telling

I read the book and as I titled it, it's an excellent lesson in perpetual story-telling. How this man interconnects seemingly insurmountable dots through the prism of a protagonist, who is a shrewd tactician of life at best and a benign, laid-back, if somewhat confused character at worst, is a lesso… (View complete review)

Story Telling at its Best

1993 Man Booker prize winner, and Best of the Booker really deserved that. Perfectly crafted beads converted into a great story. And the way Salman tells the story is really marvelous. The story has its own turns, ups and downs but everything creates more interest than earlier. As soon as you start feeling comfortable with the story and start guessing the next, story turns and take you to whole new world of Saleem Sinai's (main character of the book) life.

With approximately 100 books in my shelf, I can say one of the best so far. Real thumbs up, a must read.

READER BEWARE!

Do not, I repeat DO NOT read if you are young or a beginner. I'm just 15 and was getting cocky at my collection(which includes the godfather,a few by crichton,all of dan brown and chetan bhagat,and a few classics from here and there,not to mention a couple of agatha christies).
So I thought,hey!let's enter the big time and read the white tiger.It was easy enough.So why not step up the difficulty,and hey presto, there I was sitting excitedly with Midbight's dear Children for company.And weren't they tiresome!
I stopped it after a while and read two or three others in between,and when the sch

At Midnight rose, the Promiscuous Twins!!

Well, if Saleem Sinai were a living contemporary of mine, I would have been as ashamed of having to live along with him as would have been with living in that sort of a land itself. But the very cruelty of this thought comes pinching you in the ass when you realize that what Saleem Sinai was cursed into becoming was not the result of Salman Rushdie’s pessimistic view of an India or his convulsive magically realistic blasphemy of its dogmas, but because of the very truth that, this originally is contemporary India and you cannot discard the epiphany. Salman Rushdie is the mesmerizing author

It simply blew my mind.

I am a teenager and this was my first Rushdie novel. Initially, I found the book a little tough to read but after 30 pages or so, I totally fell in love with the characters and the brilliantly woven story. Midnight's Children truly deserves the accolades it has received.

I now greatly adore and respect Sir Salman Rushdie and I surely am going to read the rest of his works.

An unmistakable masterpiece from Salman Rushdie

Midnight's Children is in a class of its own. The beginning is a bit dreary, but once you're past page 65-70, it holds the reader in a vice-like grip. Sometimes, I wonder how authors like Salman Rushdie come up with books like these. I mean, one cannot help but give credit to authors who have the ability to come up with a bizarre yet fascinating premise, and turn it into 530 pages of pure art. The genius is all fire and air in involving India and its children, weaving history with magical realism.

The booker of Bookers! Outstanding book! Loved it to the core!

People would have cursed me all right if I had said that I hadn’t read Salman Rushdie’s Midnight’s Children. I cursed myself too for having delayed reading one of the most profound books of my generation. The book changed the entire course of Indian writing in English. After the publication of Midnight’s Children, the Indian writing became what it is known today: a world to watch out for. Maybe, this is an incorrect viewpoint, but it did wonders all the same. We always had produced great works of grandeur but one has to give it to Sir Salman for having changed the course of the river of Englis

Definitely Worth a read!

I loved Midnight's Children when I read it in school and I love it now-almost a decade later. Mainly for transporting you into another world. Its colourful characters, confusing sometimes but fun mostly, draw you deeper into a magical, surreal world. If you want reality, don't read this book. The book is about the Midnight's Children (children born in the first hour after the birth of India as a nation) and their erstwhile leader Saleem Sinai. It traces him (and them) through childhood, the creation of Pakistan, and beyond.

For select readers only

This goes not for Midnight's Children but for all of Rushdie's works.
Rushdie is not every ones writer. If you plan to use this book as an easy read, something for a train ride may be, then he is not your author. Rushdie's works encompasses all the predominant traits of post-modern colonial literature. To understand him one needs to dedicate as much energy into reading his books as much as he has in writing them. Rushdie as usual shines in his signature style. An India much like a history book yet unbelievable and then he leaves the in this tangle of truth and his fiction.
