Reviews

A magical-realist reflection of the issues India faced post-independence including culture, language, religion, and politics... It's a truly incredible work. -- Jack Rear * Verdict *
The extraordinary alchemy of Midnight's Children was its miraculous fusion of the fantastical and the historical. -- Jereme Boyd Maunsell * Evening Standard *
A wonderful, rich and humane novel that is safe to call a classic. -- Sam Jordison * Guardian *
Rushdie's novel took a post-colonial "empire fights back" spirit, and a deep personal understanding of the politics of Indian partition, and exploded them into something teeming with imaginative life... He inhabits a hybrid consciousness, with a telepathic connection to the other children of midnight, and tells its stories for all he is worth. -- Tim Adams * Observer *
'Salman Rushdie has earned the right to be called one of our great storytellers.' Observer
