Book Review of The Satanic Verses

The Satanic Verses
The Satanic Verses
Author: Salman Rushdie
Genre: Literature & Fiction
Book Type: Paperback
reviewed Requires a knowledge of Indian culture and Muslim literature on
Helpful Score: 4

Without any real knowledge of Indian culture or the Qur'an, it was clear halfway through that I was missing a vast majority of the meaning of the text. If I had some base in these fields, I think I'd enjoy this book much more. Without this info I didn't find the book very interesting (I stopped halfway through).
