Inextricably linked with the fatwa called against its author in the wake of the novel’s publication, The Satanic Verses is, beyond that, a rich showcase for Salman Rushdie’s comic sensibilities, cultural observations, and unparalleled mastery of language. The tale of an Indian film star and a Bombay expatriate, Rushdie’s masterpiece was deservedly honored with the Whitbread Prize. Download and start listening now!

    " This was a struggle to get through, and I made myself finish it on principle, but I didn't enjoy it at all. I found the main characters to be bad people and unrealistic, but worst of all, uninteresting. I didn't care what happened to them, and so had no interest in thinking about what Rushdie was actually trying to say. I was disappointed for a second time by Rushdie. "

    " With all the press this book got I had to read it. It was slow at times, but fairly entertaining none the less!! Not at all what I expected! How could anyone take what is obviously a completely fictional work seriously enough to put out a death warrant on the author. Really get a grip people!! "
