Midnights Children - Salman Rushdie

An intelligent book , A smart book meant for an intelligent audience or atleast one who is willing to read the book thrice. yes i didnt get all of the book especillay the end, but there is a charm to this book, the phrases used that bkeeps you engrossed even if you didnt understand parts of it.
The story of Saleem Sinai , he who will always be as old as India is told , blending his story with parts of India's history. Notice the articles where Saleem cuts out newspaper headlines to write his note to Commander Sabarmati . Turns of phrase that shouldnt work but do (rusted time) abound aplenty in this book
A good read though a bit dense sometimes
