Rate this:
In his first novel since The Satanic Verses, Rushdie gives readers a masterpiece of controlled storytelling, informed by astonishing scope and ambition, by turns compassionate, wicked, poignant, and funny. From the paradise of Aurora's legendary salon to his omnipotent father's sky-garden atop a towering glass high-rise, the Moor's story evokes his family's often grotesque but compulsively moving fortunes in a world of possibilities embodied by India in this century.

This is Salman Rushdie at his best. He takes you yonder, some magical reality, away from the surface of this earth, yet remains understandable, with the down to earth clarity, uncharacteristic (to me), of his other novels like Haroun and and the sea of stories, Satanic verses and Mid-Night's Children. I find it hard to select reading materials, after reading any Salman Rushdie. In this i learn that, "Every love is good, even defeated love..."

The destruction of an empire as told by one of its fallen sons,an abomination everyone will abuse. While in certain aspects similar to Rushdie equally masterful book Shame , The Moors Last Sigh sheds the skin of poetry that Shame wore so confidently. it does steal anything away fromit, on the contrary, its adherence to reality imbues upon its prose a completly unique, and no less enjoyable quality. if you have yet to taste Rushdies delicacies of literature, i would recommend this as perfect entree.
