I could not get into this book. After 100 pages, I didn't care about any of the characters, and there seemed to be nothing driving the plot - just one thing happening after another for no apparent reason.

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.
