Salman Rushdie is a master writer, and while I understood much of what he wrote in Midnight's Children, this one felt at times like a cleverly organized convoluted mess. Nicknames, given names, assumed names, assumed identities all served to confuse me as I went through the book.

At the same time the way he connected Jodha/Akbar and their famous love story to renaissance Italy intrigued me and kept me reading. So--its a worth a try, but be warned its a challenge to get through.
