Inextricably linked with the fatwa called against its author in the wake of the novel's publication, The Satanic Verses is, beyond that, a rich showcase for Salman Rushdie's comic sensibilities, cultural observations, and unparalleled mastery of language. The tale of an Indian film star and a Bombay expatriate, Rushdie's masterpiece was deservedly honored with the Whitbread Prize. 'Swift's Gulliver's Travels, Voltaire's Candide . [Rushdie] is very much a latter-day member of their company.'-New York Times Book Review

Great language by the author, great quotes, but I was a bit confused of the plot. The narrator was awesome though, enjoyed the different accents and voices that he used.

A really nice novel, ruined by the narrator. Dastor’s attempt at imitating the Indian accent comes across as comical, making serious characters sound like caricatures reminiscent of the stereotypical goofy Indian characters in sitcoms. He also mispronounces many of the Indian places and names (e.g. Rekha). Narration is in the same category as chalkboard and fingernails. And, I am being kind.
