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

Review:

Before Salman Rushdie had that problem with a certain religious-political figure with a serious need to chill out, he'd already shown he was an important literary force. Quite simply, Midnight's Children is amazing--fun, beautiful, erudite, both fairy tale and political narrative told through a supernatural narrator who is caught between different worlds. Though it's a big book, with big themes of India's nationhood and of ethnic and personal identity, it's far from a dry history lesson. Rushdie tells the story in his own brand of magical realism, with a prose of lyrical, transcendent goofiness.

Review:

"A magical-realist reflection of the issues India faced post-independence including culture, language, religion, and politics... It’s a truly incredible work." (Jack Rear Verdict)

"The extraordinary alchemy of Midnight’s Children was its miraculous fusion of the fantastical and the historical." (Jereme Boyd Maunsell Evening Standard)

"A wonderful, rich and humane novel that is safe to call a classic." (Sam Jordison Guardian)

"Rushdie’s 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." (Tim Adams Observer)

"One of the most important books to come out of the English-speaking world in this generation" (The New York Review of Books)
