The blurb at amazon.co.uk reads:
Born at the stroke of midnight at the exact moment of India's independence, Saleem Sinai is a special child. However, this coincidence of birth has consequences he is not prepared for: telepathic powers connect him with 1,000 other 'midnight's children' all of whom are endowed with unusual gifts. Inextricably linked to his nation, Saleem's story is a whirlwind of disasters and triumphs that mirrors the course of modern India at its most impossible and glorious
I read this years ago, before BookCrossing, and remember it as being a very interesting story, about aspects of life in India and its partition into the new Pakistan about which I knew nothing. But it's also a bit of a weird book, all of these children having this telepathic link that both unites and divides them. I enjoyed it.
