  1.  A book that lets the reader paint their own world 29 March, 2013 On
    I read a satire once - "Classics are often recommended, but are rarely read".

    Recommended by a friend, but after he read it - negating the above line, as I wanted some book to sit through the night. The names of the character and the way the characters of this story are introduced to the world weaves a magic of fiction. I think reader of any age can enjoy the book, and this is the best thing I like about the book.

    With all the controversies around the writer, with a lot of celebration of his other book "Midnight's Children", this book never got into my to-read list. But I regret reading this book so late, as I could have become a genuine book lover earlier had I picked this book up earlier.

    Somehow every page opens a new window into the fantasy world. When you think that there are enough characters and sufficient fantasy to move the story now, that very moment writer pulls out a whole new scene or a lovely character to mesmerize your senses. And the writer does it almost throughout the book.

    The writing is so lucid and character names are so memorable that this book is the fastest (in terms of pages read per hour) that I have ever read.

    I would definitely recommend this to book lovers.
