The Man Booker Prize Winner 1981 About the Book: Midnight's Children Born at the stroke of midnight on August 15, 1947, at the precise moment of India's independence, the infant Saleem Sinai is celebrated in the press and welcomed by Prime Minister Nehru himself. But this coincidence of birth has consequences Saleem is not prepared for: telepathic powers that connect him with 1,000 other"midnight's children"-all born in the initial hour of India's independence-and an uncanny sense of smell that allows him to sniff out dangers others can't perceive.

  1.  Not my usual read 11 November, 2013 On
    I was not even halfway through when i gave up reading this novel.I got really fed up, annoyed and lost all my patience.This doesn't mean the novel was very bad it was because Salman Rusdie's way of writing was very high(????) that i had to read it twice to understand the characters and the story beneath it.I gave 3 stars for his unique way of writing because he has made it sure that the readers doesn't know what they were really reading.It was a surprise to me why this novel got Booker-prize award.The enthusiasm that was there before reading the book was totally spoiled after reading.
