Read in December, 2005

I was certain that I would love this book, because a) I'm a music nerd, and b) I loved Satanic Verses. While it had a lot of the characteristics that I loved about Satanic Verses, for some reason I just wasn't as engrossed in it. I read it more quickly, and found it more accessible, but I still prefer Satanic Verses. The characters started to grate on me, and I just didn't feel as invested as their outcomes. If you're looking for something by Rushdie that isn't so monumental and overwhelming, I'd start here, but if you're willing to invest a little more in one of his works, pick up Satanic Verses instead.
