it was amazing
Read from October 27, 2010 to January 01, 2011

Salman Rushdie tells the story of Saleem Sinai whose birth on August 15th, 1947 mirrors that of his home country, India, as it grows into a nation.

When tasting wine or beer, I often describe the taste as being big. Big in a sense of complex and containing flavors that I may not be able to identify but I know they are there and I enjoy them. I would say the same thing about this book. It is big and full of complexities that I may not be able to describe, but I have enjoyed.

Rushdie is an amazing story teller, beautifully weaving magic, history, betrayal, and truth. This is a great book.
