This was my first Salman Rushdie book. I wasn’t sure what to expect but it turned out to be quite an interesting story. The fantasy part of it and “exploring” the world that he created was the best part. The characters were also quite likable. All in all I think this book would intrigue younger readers and maybe even open them up to reading his other works. But for me, I didn’t find this one fantastic. Despite that, I’m still going to try out his other titles.
