This book actually deserves a four most of the way but the ending was a disappointment. I love all of Rushdie books; with the magic and the surrealism, and the clever storytelling usually mixed with some sick sexual acts. While this book has all of that, it is more parody of Rushdie than him at his best. The ending was no twist at all but makes incest seem just trite. Nothing was flushed out to the fullest, making the book seem just a very long short story. Still a good story though, just not a great one.
