I was born in the city of #bombay ... once upon a time. No, that won't do, there's no getting away from the date: I was born in Doctor Narlikar's Nursing Home on August 15th, 1947. And the time? The time matters, too. Well then: at night. No, it's important to be more ... On the stroke of midnight, as a matter of fact. Clockhands joined palms in respectful greeting as I came. Oh, spell it out, spell it out: at the precise instant of India's arrival at independence, I tumbled forth into the world. ~ Midnight's Children by #salmanrushdie (1981) #books #bookcovers #firstsentences #writing #writers #tallandtrue

▬ Les enfants de minuit, Salman Rushdie, éditions Folio (1997) . ✒️ Saleem Sinai est né à minuit, le 15 août 1947 à Bombay, jour où l’Inde a accédé à l’indépendance. Comme tous les autres enfants nés précisément à cet instant, il a reçu un don, un pouvoir magique unique. Le livre retrace son histoire ainsi que celle de sa famille, remontant jusqu’à la rencontre entre son grand-père et sa grand-mère. Ce portrait est également lié à l’histoire de l’Inde, qui est au centre de ce récit empreint de réalisme magique. 💫 Je chronique assez rarement des livres que je lis dans le cadre scolaire car les lectures obligatoires me rebutent assez… Malgré tout, j’ai réellement apprécié Les enfants de minuit, qui m’a beaucoup rappelé un livre que j’ai lu l’an dernier qui retraçait l’histoire d’une famille iranienne : Désorientale de Négar Djavadi. Le récit est narré du point de vue de Saleem Sinai, un narrateur pourvu d’humour et d’enthousiasme qui rend la plume de Rushdie assez légère. J’ai vraiment accroché à son style, étoffé mais très lisible, qui m’a embarquée pleinement dans les aventures de la famille Sinai et des enfants de minuit. Le récit est divisé en trois parties : le centre du livre m’a pleinement conquise, tandis que la troisième partie m’a bien moins emballée ; j’y trouvais quelques longueurs, je n’accrochais plus, mais la fin m’a tout de même convaincue. C’est un roman à lire, ne serait-ce que parce qu’il nous dévoile une part infime de l’histoire de l’Inde, ou que Rushdie est déjà un auteur qu’on peut qualifier de « classique ». Warning : prévoyez du temps, c’est un joli pavé de 800 pages. . #bookimia #bookworm #bookstagram #frenchbookstagram #bookaddict #bookaholic #blog #books #instabooks #bookstagrammer #french #bookish #bookishfeatures #litterature #canon550d #photography #booksphotography #winter #january #readingupdate #readingtime #read #lireenfolio #folio #lesenfantsdeminuit #midnightschildren #salmanrushdie

Just Finished... The master of wordplay weaves a modern myth based on a Greek myth. Not as good as Midnight's Children but still a great read. ---- "In spite of all the evidence that life is discontinuous, a valley of rifts, and that random chance plays a great part in our fates, we go on believing in the continuity of things, in causation and meaning." + + #justfinished #salmanrushdie #literaryfiction #mythology #epiclovestory #books

I'm enjoying this book so far, but I'm going to take a little break from it because I'm Buddy-reading it with @jawhara.n 💃🏻 and we changed the timeline... So! Keep your eyes peeled for what I'll be substituting it with next 😊 #unreadshelfproject2018 #manbookerprize #readingoutdoors #salmanrushdie #midnightschildren #fiction

is it? what d'ya think? #salmanrushdie #thesatanicverses

Finally finished #reading the #memoir by #salmanrushdie, #josephanton. My takeaways are: 1)This memoir is obviously a useful primer for anyone interested in learning more about the fatwa. I was young and only vaguely aware of the fatwa at the time, and had no idea how terrible and terrifying a period that was, or how many people were horribly impacted. Goodness. 2) My favorite part of the book, and of Rushdie's life, really, is his tender love for his two sons. What a gift to these gentlemen, that they will be able to read about and be confident in their father's great love for them. Truly very special. 3) Aside from his children, though, Rushdie seems to be seriously lacking in empathy. He name drops famous literary figures and Hollywood celebrities on every other page like it's an addiction, but he shares only about three lines regarding his own mother's death!! And, as we've all heard by now, it appears to be true, sadly, that Rushdie has disrespected and objectified women. This is always uncomfortable to read, but more so in 2018. Bizarrely, he begins one of his extramarital affairs at a party thrown by Harvey Weinstein! The book was published before the current movement, but goodness, it is uncomfortable to read about how he treats his wives. In the end, I felt kinda sorry for this genius who definitely deserves a Nobel Prize, but who can't seem to figure out how to learn from his mistakes, how to respect women or how to develop his own emotional intelligence.  Nevertheless, we all deserve second (or fifth) chances. I still cherish Rushdie's #fiction, and he remains my favorite #author. And that's that. Good night to all! Next book coming soon! Xoxoxo. #amreading #culturetripbooks #booksofinstagram #bookworm

Обожаю работать дома. Пишу книгу, готовлюсь с командой к очередному Девичнику и читаю новую книгу Salman Rushdie “The Golden House”. Вообще, в последнее время я стала более асоциальной. Толи это от концентрации на конкретное дело, толи от общего желания аккумулировать всю энергию на то, что действительно важно. А может быть все вместе. В любом случае, мой немноголюдный, но все же активный мирок на девятнадцатом этаже доставляет кайф, который уже сложно найти в шумных потоках людей. #salmanrushdie #spb #thegoldenhouse

Like #thegoldenhouse by #salmanrushdie? The #alternativefacts series makes a good companion piece! www.amazon.com/author/publiusvaleriuspoplicola

'Shame' is the first Rushdie novel I have read, and I loved it. I found it quite challenging at first - there are so many characters to keep up with and so many references that went over my head - but once I had got into it I was absolutely hooked. The story is beautifully told by a narrator who continually interrupts the narrative, reminds us that what we're reading is fiction (or in his words, a 'fairytale'), and moves back and forth in time through generations from one page to the next. I loved the magic realism - it's a bit like reading a dream. It feels real, makes total sense at the time, but at the same time it's utterly fantastical and could never happen. I won't try to explain the story here, but I urge you to read it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ . My next read is Colson Whitehead's 'The Underground Railroad'. I've been dying to read this for ages and got my hands on a copy after I was given some bookshop vouchers for Christmas. I read the first two chapters last night and it looks like it's going to be an amazing book - and very eye opening. ✨ . . . #goodreads #bookstagram #books #bookish #booklover #bookworm #bookaddict #bookaholic #reader #reading #review #bookreview #salmanrushdie #shame #colsonwhitehead #theundergroundrailroad

Knjigu sam dobila prošle godine, i evo došla je na red 🤔 zahvaljujući @lelica12 🤓 da zajedno čitamo istog pisca, a onda saberemo utiske. Poznajući nju, završiće prva, ja malo razvlačim zbog "obaveza" 😁 ○ #newbook #reading #bookstagram #salmanrushdie #enchantressofflorence #carobnicaizfirence #montenergo

"A sigh isn't just a sigh. We inhale the world and we breathe out meaning. While we can. While we can." ✍ Salman Rushdie, The Moor's Last Sigh Rushdie has a new book out. Can I afford to put my life on pause right now and devote a few days to finish this? #kinokuniya #bookskinokuniya #salmanrushdie #thegoldenhouse #themoorslastsigh

Passei da metade de "Os versos satânicos". Sim, a leitura desse livro tá uma looooonga novela, mas cada capítulo avançado é extremamente recompensador. Salman Rushdie cutuca a onça com vara curtíssima! 🤘 #osversossatânicos #salmanrushdie #literatura

Another Monday to reflect on the books we devoured this weekend! The Golden House by Salman Rushdie takes us on a journey through the view of a young man, Rene, in New York. Rene wants to be involved with the film industry and he takes us on an interesting path to find out the secret of his neighbours past. It touches on mental health, current politics and relationships. A great read with a few twists a long the way. Have you had a chance to read this one yet? What do you think? #book #bookstagram #thegoldenhouse #salmanrushdie #currentpolitics #newyork #drama #film #art #mystery #weekendread #relax #words

Been delightedly diving into a lot of fascinating non fiction over the past couple of days thanks to The Hindu Lit For Life. (Catch the final sessions tomorrow at Lady Andal school.) Now, after a long day, I'm in the mood for escapism and cookies. #grimus by one of my all time favourite authors #salmanrushdie #abookaweek2018 #book3 #newyearsresolution #lfl2018 #makingreadinggreatagain #52booksin52weeks
