Midnight's Children

Book cover
Salman Rushdie is one of the greatest Indian writers who was born in Bombay. Of course, this city is more known for its film industry and a great number of movies shot by Bollywood every year. Rushdie is probably not so prolific but he it not less interesting or mysterious. His novels are not so musical as each film created at Bollywood but often the plot of his novels resemble Indian movies oreven become the basis of future films. Midnight's Children is perhaps one of the most remarkable of his works which grained Booker Prize in 1980. The story narrates its readers about two children who were born at midnight of August 15, 1947, that is at the very exact moment when India got its independence. And as it is pretty usual in all Indian plots, the babies were switched in the hospital. One of then finds himself in a rich Muslim family and his parents do everything for him. The other baby is raise in a Hindu tenement. Their fates are definitely worth attention... Although one may say that Salman Rushdie uses traditional ideas and does not add anything innovative into his story, it is still a real masterpiece, being witty, dramatic and even comic in some places.
