Description du produit

Revue de presse

"Totally different to anything I'd read before: hilarious at times, frustrating at times, exploring how history is linked into our lives, plus lots of metaphors about chutney." (Issy Patience Skinny)

"'Salman Rushdie has earned the right to be called one of our great storytellers.' Observer"

"'Huge, vital, engrossing... in all senses a fantastic book.' Sunday Times"

"'The literary map of India has been redrawn... Midnight's Children sounds like a country finding its voice.' New York Times"

"'A brilliant and endearing novel.' London Review of Books"

Présentation de l'éditeur

Born at the stroke of midnight, at the precise moment of India's independence, Saleem Sinai is destined from birth to be special. For he is one of 1,001 children born in the midnight hour, children who all have special gifts, children with whom Saleem is telepathically linked.

But there has been a terrible mix up at birth, and Saleem’s life takes some unexpected twists and turns. As he grows up amidst a whirlwind of triumphs and disasters, Saleem must learn the ominous consequences of his gift, for the course of his life is inseparably linked to that of his motherland, and his every act is mirrored and magnified in the events that shape the newborn nation of India. It is a great gift, and a terrible burden.

I would never have thought of reading Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children, "Far too intellectual for me," I thought, until in casual conversation, someone recommended it to me as their favourite book. I bought it and it sat on my bookshelf for while until I ran out of things to read and picked it up. From the first sentence, I loved it. The characters and the sights and smells are described in such a way that you can imagine it all in front of you and the world takes on a different face as you read the book. It tells the story of the children born on midnight of India's independence through the eyes of the main character, who himself is one of these children. It is a delicious mixture of fantasy and history and impressions of the Indian subcontinent with certain sentences so beautiful and apt, you want to memorise them.

Magic realism, gripping book, beautiful style, unforgettable characters, words are not enough to describe the magic operated by the book and the unforgettable experience it was to read it. It's probably one of the best, and most original, books I've ever read, one that will always stay in my mind. This book is a must, a reference. Read it.

It is really challenging for me to review and sum up this massive, multi-layered, multi-dimensional book. I would like to say also that this is the most complex book that I have read in the few past years. Was it a great book? The answer is "YES"! Would I read another book from the same author? "YES".
The plot revolves around Saleem Sinai's birth and life. Saleem, the narrator and protagonist of the novel, is born on the stroke of midnight at the exact moment when India achieved Independence. This accident of birth gives him (and other children born during that magical midnight hour), unique, special gifts. Saleem's gift is his "nose" that allowed him at first to go into people's heads and know what they are thinking. He is also able to telepathically communicate with the other midnight children forming a kind of "ham" radio link of sorts with the rest of the children. Now after an eventful life, he is breaking into pieces, literally falling apart, and he wants to narrate his story to his lover before he dies. His identity, however, is switched at birth. As a result, he is raised by a prosperous family in Bombay, while his counterpart and future rival, Shiva, is raised in poverty.
The book is about Saleem, but it is also about India because for some magical, inexplicable reasons, Saleem and India destiny are intertwined with each other. The book opens up with Saleem's grand parents in Kashimir, and then his parents and finally Saleenm and other midnight's children.
I won't say too much because I don't want to spoil it for you, but keep in mind that there are layers upon layers of fantasy/historical dates and moments etc.
Reading this book was like watching both a fantasy movie combined with an historical movie. I really loved it.
