Synopsis

Inextricably linked with the fatwa called against its author in the wake of the novel’s publication, The Satanic Verses is, beyond that, a rich showcase for Salman Rushdie’s comic sensibilities, cultural observations, and unparalleled mastery of language. The tale of an Indian film star and a Bombay expatriate, Rushdie’s masterpiece was deservedly honored with the Whitbread Prize.

This book is the classic by the well known author, Salman Rushdie. Give yourself plenty of time and have plenty of patience if you want to tackle this book. You cant read it with distractions around you, you'll lose your train of thought quickly. This book is very wordy, filled with bright descriptions of fantasy, dreams, and myths of the East Indian culture. I have read that this book is reviled by some of the more militant Muslims, and it has been printed more than once that there is a death sentence upon him for what he has written in this book. There is more than one plot line in this book and it switches back and forth with little warning. The names, descriptions,myths,religious references, all are complex and woven together. This book will be a challenge for you, but you will undoubtedly be enriched by reading it.
