Justin E Barnard, April 10, 2015 (view all comments by Justin E Barnard)
Excellent first novel, but then again this is Rushdie we're talking about. Written during the early days of modern physics (M-Theory, superstring etc.), the author utilizes a beautiful hybridity between the magical realism we see in his later works and science fiction. The result is a work of art teeming with imagination indicative of his better known later novels. I highly recommend this title for readers familiar with Rushdie, as well as an introduction into his fiction for those not yet exposed to one of the greatest literary minds of our time.
