Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“It is the most enchanting book. And it’s such a brilliant idea: children born at the same hour who metaphorically encompass all the good and evil attributes of a new society. Rushdie writes with a true patriotism—a love for his country that’s not blind.” Daniel Radcliffe
“This is a book to accept on its own terms, and an author to welcome into world company…Midnight’s Children is coarse, knowing, comfortable with Indian pop culture and, above all, aggressive…Midnight’s Children sounds like a continent finding its voice…Marvelous to behold…The flow of the book rushes to its conclusion in counterpointed harmony: myths intact, history accounted for, and a remarkable character fully alive.” New York Times
“In Salman Rushie, India has produced a glittering novelist—one with startling imaginative and intellectual resources, a master of perpetual storytelling.” New Yorker
“An extraordinary novel…One of the most important to come out of the English-speaking world in this generation.” New York Review of Books
“Pure story—an ebullient, wildly clowning, satirical, descriptively witty charge of energy.” Chicago Sun-Times
“A marvelous epic…Rushdie’s prose snaps into playback and flash-forward…stopping on images, vistas, and characters of unforgettable presence. Their range is as rich as India herself.” Newsweek
“Huge, vital, engrossing…In all senses a fantastic book.” Sunday Times (London)
