Hang in there! It takes a while to get into Midnight's Children but the storytelling is astounding. Rushdie's writing in this novel reminds me of Marquez/Love in the Time of Cholera. A great read.

Ferociously well written. Interminably long. If you stay to the end, very moving.

So you wanna read some Rushdie, but maybe the Satanic Versus is a little too much... He brings his usual style and flair to a story which proves that if you really want to know what's going on, you have to start at the beginning.

beautifully written, with very explicit detail. perhaps sometimes too intricately detailed, but a dream of a story.
