Bel libro
Buona versione kindle, libro molto di intrattenimento. Successivamente ho regalato il cartaceo!
il figlio dell'India
storia dell'India a partire dall'indipendenza fino agli scontri e alle separazioni successive, molti eventi storici vengono letti alla luce del presupposto che l'India in sè abbia il germe della grandezza ma che questa venga ancora oggi sacrificata agli interessi dei suoi governanti e al fanatismo religioso...i bambini della mezzanotte faranno tutti la stessa fine dell'India odierna: saranno sterilizzati e resi innocui dalle forze che governano il paese e che temono il potere del suo popolo..
Bel libro
Davvero un gran bel libro, non mi stupisce che abbia vinto diversi premi. Lo stile dell'autore tende a essere un po' tortuoso ma è assolutamente affascinante all'interno del romanzo. La trama è una bomba. Ma non vi spoilero nulla. Vi consiglio caldamente questa piccola meraviglia.

Appena ricevuto
Farò una recensione dettagliata quando lo leggerò ma è in coda e ci vorrà almeno un anno. Certo è un libro molto particolare e io amo il suo autore, anche se si tratta di letture piuttosto impegnative.
Soddisfatto
Un ottimo libro che offre molti spunti di riflessione
Regalo
Preso come regalo per una persona molto religiosa. Ne ha apprezzato la forma e un pò meno il contenuto, comunque una lettura da fare cercando di avere una mente aperta.

Interesting historical picture of India
The theme is interesting but more interesting was the historical picture of India. I could almost taste the flavor of chutney !
Indimenticabile
A mio parere un capolavoro, ottimo libro che tratta molto bene la storia della nascita dell'India contemporanea. Genere realismo magico.
Unpredictable book about different topics
To say I've devoured this book would be a lie, so I'll just state the truth. It took me two weeks to finish it, and this is all due to the enormity, the greatness, the ever expanding world of this book. There are longer books in literature, yes, but this book, in its almost 650 pages, manages to give several points of discussions about a different variety of topics. The story, which starts from the end like most magic realist books, is meant to be the autobiography of Saleem Sinai. Saleem tells us who he is, as every respectable biography does, and he says that his birthday is important because he was born on August 15th, 1947, on the stroke of midnight, right when India gained its Independence from the British rule. Now he's about to turn 31, but the clock is ticking, and he needs to tell his story before he forgets and it is lost forever. In a meta-narration where Saleem, our narrator, tells us about the past but also comments in the present about what happened in a precise moment, we are thrown back into pre-Independence India as Saleem starts the story by recounting his grandfather's Aadam Aziz story of how he met his grandma, in 1915, Kashmir. The place is not casual at all, because Kashmir will be one of the most reclaimed territories by both India and Pakistan after the Partition, and it's not casual everything started there, in that paradise. It's not a coincidence the grandfather is called "Aadam". It all starts from a perforated sheet where Aadam sees bits of his future wife Naseem. The perforated sheet, as well as the theme of holes in general, is recurring in this book, and greatly connects the beginning and the end that you can't fail to see the parallels, the mirrors. In this story, nothing is casual, especially the fact that Saleem was born on midnight. He, and the other children born at midnight of the same day, possessed great powers. But there are secrets behind Saleem's birth, secrets that will make or break relationships, obsessions, love and hatred. You know what they say, the more powerful you are, the more feared you will be. I wish I could say more than this, but I don't want to spoil anything to you, because this book really manages to shock you until the very end. The writing is flowing, fresh, you never get annoyed because you want to know how did that happen, what will be of this or that character. The story may seem all over the place because Saleem starts retracing his origins back to his grandfather, but it isn't at all. It is a story full of history, hybridity, identity, religion, politics... it is a world in its own right, with tragic moments made less sad by the grotesque, by the irony and the sarcasm Rushdie is able to deliver majestically. It isn't just Saleem's story, it is a story of a country divided, partitioned. A country that is looking for a mother, for a father, someone to guide them, to mend the cracks. But Saleem knows that it's impossible, because there are cracks - like the one in the perforated sheet - that you can't mend, that you won't be able to mend, especially if your fate is doomed. Rushdie is a British author but he is also Indian, which mean this novel also deals with the problem of hybridity, because Saleem also moves to different places in his life. I could say more but I think you should read for yourself the waste number of topics that this book discusses, because they can't be narrowed down. I think lovers of magic realism but also fantasy will like this book.
