really liked it
Read from February 12 to April 06, 2012

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Being my very first Rushdie I picked this book up with some trepidation and absolute confidence that my audible credit is going to be wasted. However I am glad that the outcome turned out to be very different.

The book is full of symbolism and implied interpretations. I do not claim that I understood all of them especially the "lost journey" in sunderbans and the one towards the end but it made for a pleasant and fast read. It took some time to get used to Rushdie's writting style and the characters in the story; but once you have the mental map in place the journey is a lot easier.

Would recommend this to anyone who wants to experiment a bit and read something closely tied to India in a fictional context.
