Reviews

"Salman Rushdie is a storyteller of prodigious powers, able to conjure up whole geographies, causalities, climates, creatures, customs, out of thin air." -- The New York Times Book Review

"...a surreal hallucinatory feast." -- Kirkus Reviews

"...a splendid feast." -- Publishers Weekly

"[A] torrent of endlessly inventive prose, by turns comic and enraged, embracing life in all its contradictions. In this spectacular novel, verbal pyrotechnics barely outshine its psychological truths."

Newsday

"Exhilarating, populous, loquacious, sometimes hilarious, extraordinary . . . a roller-coaster ride over a vast landscape of the imagination."-The Guardian

-The Times (London)

"In pure aesthetic terms, "The Satanic Verses" is a delight: funny, broadly erudite and wrenchingly gorgeous. And as a matter of politics and religion, this novel embodies the unique ideological power of art: to push beyond what's possible, to say what would be too costly for actors in another arena to speak aloud, to expand the audience's sense of what the world can be." -- Alyssa Rosenberg, The Washington Post
