bookshelves: magical-realism

Rushdie's writing is lushly rich and sensual, as always. His characters are complex and beautiful. Rushdie's voice for magical realism is unique, I think, and I love reading his work. The story moves between India and Italy and more. So why a mere 4 stars? I had some trouble keeping straight the characters and their adventures, and I'm not sure why. I found myself confused more than once. Also, although Rushdie has something to say, it is more murky than usual. None the less, this is Rushdie and this book is a beautiful read--pair it with a nice red and some decadent food.

I think I have to go back and reread his earlier work, especially Midnight"s Children, which was my first and favorite of his works.
