midnight’s children


i finally finished this book on the train home from my christmas break and i was pretty relieved because i felt like it had been taking me forever and a day to read. i tend to find in rushdie’s books that i get lost in the sea of names and plots and i always expect to love his work completely.¬†however, i’ve been thinking about this book more and more since i completed it; i’m gaining a more nostalgic view of it as i gain distance from it, and the more i think about elements of it i become more astounded by the genius of rushdie’s writing and his rich and complex storytelling. i think this is a book that i would definitely come back to in the future and i would definitely recommend it!
