I found this book in the discount section of Borders and I just couldn't pass it up at $3.99.
Early Salman Rushdie, this book is amazing. Evidence: it won the Booker Prize.
The main character is born at the exact moment of Indian independence and his life mirrors that of the new country.
Steeped with magical realism this book is extraordinary.
Note to readers: it does get a little slow at times, but regardless it is a wonderful book. (k)
Sent to honey1982 because it was on her wishlist.
The lady at the post office said it should arrive in a week. (k)

Wonderful! Read this with my coworker and sparks notes! It's been a long time since a book has made me think so much. I'm struck by the ego of the main character and didn't find him likeable. At times, this made it difficult to read. Through research, we learned so much about this part of the world. I think this book will be travelling around the office for the next few months.
