Well, now I can say I've read Salman Rushdie. This was tough reading - very visual with very colorful characters, but Rushdie regularly uses a stream-of-consciousness kind of approach that is SO full of references to minute details of history and politics of India, and quotes from all kinds of literature, that I started to feel a little stupid. Then, I decided I was irritated because he was starting to come across as a bit too self-congratulatory in his cleverness. It's a fascinating story, don't get me wrong. But it sometimes seems like Rushdie is working just as much at being eccentric as he is at being an author. I don't think I need to read another by him.
