  • review: I didn't know a new book from Salman Rushdie had been published until I came across while walking through the book store. Bought it on an impulse - how could I resist. Looking forward to the mesmerising delight that is Rushdie's linguistic forte, I was quite surprised to discover that this was an incredibly clever and well-woven tale of modernity spun into the fabric of ancient Indian history. So much to easily miss, not notice, and realise that this is a really well written story. I missed the poetic language that evoke a love for reading, but the story itself being set in parallels to India mythologies was intriguing in itself. Still a good read - but I want to go get another Rushdie book to satiate my appetite for the language from Midnight's Children and Shame - which I immensely enjoyed.,
