Day 915 – #7 Complete the BBC Big Read Top 100 books

midnightAnother book ticked off my list!  I read this one mostly while we were away and flew through it.  It was very, very easy to get into (despite the Indian words).  Saleem’s narrative was chatty, witty and engaging and I wanted to keep going and find out what happened next.

I didn’t know much about India’s history before I read this book and so it was interesting to find out how the historic events around the separation were woven into Saleem’s own story.

It’s not a short book but it’s well worth reading.
