Salman Rushdie ✓ 4 review

Lf like his characters to be pulled now in one direction then in another Yet he remains a writer who insists on our cultural complexity; who rising beyond ideology refuses to choose between East and West and embraces the world. My first of Salman Rushdie and I m uite nervous about it Heard a lot about this author and been thinking to try out reading a book or two by him but haven t had a chance yet But luckily I got this short stories book from the Big Bad Wolf so I guess it will do as my first reading from Salman RushdieThe book separated to three part East West and East West I really love the East part enjoyed reading all of the 3 stories narratives were gripping took me into a journey of cultural and tradition family and religious While the West part was a bit confusing and thought provoking for me I actually twice reading the Christopher Columbus story pheww I was a bit blurred at this part and really trying my best to enjoy my read The writings took me into an imaginary and bizarre feeling but somehow I love the writing style a lot It seems heavy but uite impressive East West was my favorite as well the balance of the other two parts I love Chekov and Zulu so much Wonderful prose and entertainingA very intriguing book I may say Not bad for my first 35
