We get it, you really like attention. Two Indian actors of opposing sensibilities fall to earth, transformed into living symbols of what is angelic and evil.
Someone told versetx not to use the term “orientalist” because it was “stale” so I’ll use master of the Orient instead.

A book whose importance is eclipsed only by its quality, The Satanic Verses is a key work of our times. Too many metaphors and therefore a very confusing novel. Otherwise most of the allusions will be wasted on you like they were me.
It’s horribly unreadable, and just goes to prove my firm belief that people who protest books sal,an movies rarely actually read or see them.

He fails to employ that mysticism to do anything more interesting than a competent author could do with the real and concrete. At least he threw in a book recommendation, Akbar and Birbal, in that paragraph to make it worth something. Rushdie spends a fair amount of time harping on it on multiple occasions, yet its purpose is never clear, and it, walman the escaped freaks, just up and disappears from the novel after the hospital section.
I don’t mind any religious discussion, on the contrary I find sataniquew important, but this was just a prejudice; cause obviously the writer didn’t know what he was talking about, he was using the right names in one place but totally inventing the others, or using different historical characters in the sxtaniques era, I actually read this novel for nothing but the controversy, as many have did.

He’s certainly proven to me that he’s a master of the Orient at this point, though. The story started out interesting enough, with the characters literally falling out of the sky. Separate stories that re-use character names do not end up making a cohesive narrative world.

Salman Rushdie uses excessive language to cloud discordant plots, has a part-time occupation of scouring the news to write op-eds about evil Muslim organizations he reads about, and is obsessed with celebrity. It doesn’t matter though because it didn’t mean anything to begin with.

After that, I think, there is no need to speek of the story’s lacking of subject, cause he hadn’t any, or the week plot, or the effort to imtate Joyce’s style Because British academics had been studying Islamic culture and teaching the arab language for over years when this book was first sayaniques, there is simply no excuse.
He teaches English now at Emory University, far away from where the following treacherous Islamists lurk.
Suggesting that the Mohammed was a brothel owner with 12 prostitutes rather than a prophet with twelve wives is locker room humour that should not be given a public forum. It reflects very badly on the British publishing industry that it did. In the end Muhammad retracts these safaniques after it was decided that Satan had led him astray.
I was massively underwhelmed by this. Over the course of the book we follow the mis-adventures of the two as they progress through a series of odd dream like transformations after the bombing a plane they were traveling in. Someone should have shown the manuscript to a few qualified Islamic scholars before going to press.
