    I never got past page 60 in this book I read and forgot and reread and forgot again up unto about the fifth reading when I thought to myself that I might rate Midnight s Children as one of the greatest books I ve read, enjoyed the depiction of Benazir Bhutto as the Virgin Ironpants in Shame a great deal, but I also couldn t read Shalimar the Clown and thought that Grimus was excreble not even Rushie rated this first offering of his oeuvre So what was I doing trying so hard with the Satanic Verses I felt that for a book to engender such a farrago of praise, death and destruction I must read it for myself and see what it was all about But I couldn t It bored me rigid.However from the synopsis and reviews I have read of the book, I think it might translate into an excellent film, I just don t think there is a dire...

    Satanic Verses A CompositionHe had just finished his thirty fourth reading of the play The unsaid hate, the unseen events, the half imagined wrongs they tormented him What could cause such evil to manifest, he just could not figure He loved him too much to believe the simple explanation.And then the idea starts growing on him to explore the growth of evil just as Shakespeare showed, explored the tragic culmination of it And because you show the growth, it can no longer be a tragedy, no, no it has to be a comedy A tragicomedy Yes And he set to it He painted Othello as an Indian actor, worshiped and adored and off on a mad canter to get his Ice Queen, his Desdemona On his way he meets him the poor man trying to forget his own roots and desperately reinventing himself, his Iago Yes Iago too was once a man What twists of fate made him evil incarnate He sets out his prime motif The question that s asked here remains as large as ever it was which is, the nature of evil, how it s born, why it grows, how it takes unilateral possession of a many sided human soul.Wait a minute, he blinks at his notes...

    Occasionally, I will go into Half Price Books and buy a book that hasn t been recommended by any one I know, by an author I ve never read before, solely because of its critical acclaim I buy and read a book because I feel that I should, based on the general public s reaction to it It is a weakness Many months ago, I decided to buy Salman Rushdie s The Satanic Verses My decision was based on the controversy surrounding the book It was thought to be so controversial, so blasphemous, that Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini issued a fatwa on Salman Rushdie It became every Muslim s sacred duty to hunt down this writer of fiction and kill him So I thought these were the days long before the reaction to Danish comics wow, this book pissed off people enough that they want to kill him Wow I must read this book It s gotta be good That s what controversy does It brings a lot of attention to something that doesn t always merit the attention So, when I bought Rushdie s book, I fell for the hype Partly because it was a subject that I did have an interest in I m an amateur theologian, and I can t find better amusement than blasphemy Besides that, I love Magic Realism and this book had plenty of that What this book did not have plenty of was editing This book was in serious need of an editor There were parts that were thri...

    The Satanic Verses is vastly imaginative and creative it is a force to be reckoned with in the literary world providing you can actually get through it And there s the rub because The Satanic Verses is quite possibly the single most confusing piece of fiction I have ever read I m just not sure what happened And after 500 pages I feel like a book should leave me with a little than an overbearing sense of bewilderment Perhaps if I was widely read I would have appreciated it That being said, I don t think any reader should even attempt this book unless they have a strong grasp on Islamic theology and the Quran Otherwise most of the allusions will be wasted on you like they were me.It s just so difficult to read without that knowledge base It drew upon such a huge wealth of myths, religion and stories that it became so hard to follow Multiple names are used to refer to the same characters and they frequently shifted in and out of the narrative making it hard to focus on the story and discern what the actual story was at any given point So much of the novel went over my head that by around the half way point I d lost the thread completely and was just reading a series of seemingly unconnected chapters What didn t help is the fact that I m also reading Joseph Anton, Rushdie s biography The personal relationship between him and his farther is detailed quite extensively throughout and much of Rushdie s emotions regarding the matter are paralleled her...

    Here s the thing about this book that you will immediately grasp from what everyone says it s a beast I do not mean this in a bad sense I mean this in the sense that it s overwhelming It s long, complex storylines that involve overlapping characters and storylines that don t overlap in time or space at all , dense and occasionally slow It is not for the reader with ADD No matter how quickly you think you might read, reading this book will slow you down No matter how determined you are to catch every single detail and nuance of this book and what it means, you will not.I can generally blaze through a book in a matter of days It took me an entire year to read this book, and was almost certainly my longest read I often had to go back and refer to other parts of the book to keep names and events straight but you know what it was worth every minute.Rushdie is a master writer, and I can t tell you how much ...

    Unfortunately, most people know this book from the scandal and fatwa it generated around the personage of its prolific and outspoken author Salman Rushdie rather than the book itself The thing that enraged some Muslims and the Ayatollah of Iran most of all was Rushdie s hypothesis that Mohammed, being completely illiterate and having the Qu ran being narrated to him by Archangel Gabriel could have dozed off at one point and that Satan could have impersonated Gabriel without Mohammed noticing causing some verses of the Holy Book to be written by him That s it Just a theory No than when Kazantzakis imagines Jesus fantasising about accepting Mary Magdalene s sexual advances In Rushdie s book, this is not even the main story, just an internal narrative in a dream of a character that falls out of an airplane of all things The book is highly imaginative and althoug...

    What kind of idea are you This question, scattered throughout the pages of this novel, is the intermediary between the author and his work A waterloo of sorts, a windbreaker giving rise to the question of the material s purpose It gives us some sort of glimpse as to why he chose to name it Satanic Verses , insight to all its diabolical implications, and some sort of motive as to why it is disrespectful to Islam and the Prophet So what kind of an idea is this In turn, what kind of idea are we It is said that people are only the sum of their ideas and beliefs So what equaled to our sum What are we made of Are you a preconceived idea When does the bias of the material end and when does the bias of the reader begin If you re either a Christian or a Muslim, then surely the title of this novel made you pause, if only a little Or maybe it drove you off altogether I assure you this novel is not satanic in any devilish way Now I ask the question Do we really approach a book with an open mind, or do we give immediate judgment to books based on their titles Do we read without bias or do we bear impasse to fairness Do we aim to learn or do we aim to protect our knowledge These questions, I believe, are critical when discussing reading materials which are controve...
