Midnight's Children


Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie

While enjoyable to read, and an interesting story, I just can't keep reading it.  I find myself re-reading almost every other page, and just when I start to get in the groove he switches everything up and I feel like I have to start all over.  Maybe this book is just too smart for me, who knows, but I am a busy gal; I have two out of control kids, and enough chores do to around the house to keep me busy for 10 hours of my day.  There is not enough reading time in my day to keep at it this long (I wasted a whole week already)...I will try it again, because I am curious in the story and characters, maybe when my kids are out of the house, lol!

Recommended: Nope, not really.

I tried this one in college--as an assignment, mind you--and just couldn't figure it out. But I do believe I B.S.-ed a kick-A paper. I congratulate your courage of even trying.

You know, Rushdie gets a lot of accolades, but I can't get past that he used to be married to Padme (ala top chef). Snore.
