5.0 out of 5 stars A magnificent novel
By Priya Majumdar on 31 October 2019
This is the story of Saleem Sinai who was born at the stroke of midnight on 15th August, 1947, at the exact moment of India's independence. But what's more intriguing, or rather eccentric, is not his coincidental birth - he had born in this impossible age with telepathic powers that somehow connect him to other thousand "midnight's children" as him. Furthermore, he perceived the power to sniff out danger beforehand that others are unaware of.

With a political underlining running deep, the novel is infused with heavy dashes of fantasy. Saleem's biography is a torrent of antithesis in the course of the glorious modern India.

Salman Rushdie's writing is magnificent with dazzling drops of wit and vitality. No wonder this novel has become such a great success and emerged as a major novel which redraws the literary map of India. I recommend everyone reading this novel. The novel is fat (647 pages to be precise) but I assure you the reading will be worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie
By Amazon Customer on 4 April 2018
This is the novel about a man, born at the stroke of midnight on 15th August, 1947, having unique power like others born at the same hour and his journey upto 31 years (his future death?). Indian politics, fate of other children born at that midnight has run parallel in the background whereas, the boy grows up within and out of his family.
The book started very promisingly, but Rushdie's English was very heavy for me. Plus the narrative is somewhat complex and full of metaphors and magical realism. Characters are very close and similar to each other. But it sticks you to the book until the end.
0If you're a novel lover, must go for this book.
