Overview: Midnight's Children

Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie is a work of historical fiction. In the hour of India's freedom on 15th August, 1947, two babies are born in the Bombay hospital. As fate would have it, they were switched by a nurse in the hospital. Saleem, son of a poor woman and Shiva, the son of a wealthy couple are destined to live the lives of one another. However, when they grow up, their lives intersect and become inextricably connected to India's turbulent journey of victory and defeat.

  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.
