'A wonderful, rich and humane novel... a classic' Guardian Born at the stroke of midnight at the exact moment of India's independence, Saleem Sinai is a special child. However, this coincidence of birth has consequences he is not prepared for: telepathic powers connect him with 1,000 other 'midnight's children' all of whom are endowed with unusual gifts. Inextricably linked to his nation, Saleem's story is a whirlwind of disasters and triumphs that mirrors the course of modern India at its most impossible and glorious. *WINNER OF THE BOOKER AND BEST OF THE BOOKER PRIZE* **A BBC BETWEEN THE COVERS BIG JUBILEE READ PICK** WITH A NEW 40TH ANNIVERSARY INTRODUCTION BY THE AUTHOR

Recensioner i media

A wonderful, rich and humane novel that is safe to call a classic. * Guardian * Midnight's Children is also full of such zest for every messy aspect of life that you can't help but feel inspired * Guardian * Rushdies novel took a post-colonial empire fights back spirit, and a deep personal understanding of the politics of Indian partition, and exploded them into something teeming with imaginative life He inhabits a hybrid consciousness, with a telepathic connection to the other children of midnight, and tells its stories for all he is worth. * Observer * The extraordinary alchemy of Midnights Children was its miraculous fusion of the fantastical and the historical. * Evening Standard * A magical-realist reflection of the issues India faced post-independence including culture, language, religion, and politics Its a truly incredible work. * Verdict *
