Rushdie is a very wordy author, but sometimes he can sum up perfectly...

‘“Normal doesn‘t feel so normal to me,” I tell him.
“It‘s normal to feel that way,” he replies‘

Bailedbailed

Yes I abandoned this one and yes I have it 2 stars anyways. I actually love Don Quixote and Sancho. I loved it every time they bantered or fought giant windmills and charged at people who he thought were the “enemy” and be all
Bumbling. Those are the bits I Loved and how positive he always stayed, searching for love.

But the short stories throughout took me out of the story. So I bailed

RachelAmphlett Omg, i tried to read this years ago and bailed! Such a shame as the concept always fascinated me! 5d
Booklover2 I wanted to love it with all my heart 5d

Omg, this book 😳😮😍💗💓💕💞. I'm not sure I can say enough to give this book its due. This is Rushdie at his best. Magical realism at its finest. Storytelling at its peak. This. THIS is the type of literary fiction that I adore. A modern retelling of Don Quixote told by a master.

Highly HIGHLY recommended. Possibly my favorite read of the year.

Thank you to #randomhouse for the #arc.

Bookish.SAM Wow. That‘s some high praise 😊 2w
gossamerchild @Bookish.SAM 😂 Rushie IS one of my favorite contemporary writers, so I'm probably a little biased :-) 1w

I would have to say that I appreciated this book more than I enjoyed it. It was funny and satirical; it was a critique of the current insanity of American culture; and it was somewhat experimental. The characters, however, were uninteresting—they seemed to stand in for ideas rather than be actual people. This left me a bit detached from the story and definitely impacted my ability to enjoy it. 3⭐️

Parts of this were typical Rushdie genius. Timely, contemplative, satirical, meta, and thematically bursting. But, when I was not in awe of the allusions, wordplay, and smart social commentary, I was bored, annoyed, and detached. But bravo to the voice actor. The narration was really well done, especially considering the complexity of the prose.

Mandoul Great review. Thanks! 3w

Oh, Don Quixote! You‘re on my to read list, along with so many other #chunkster classics! I do know of his reputation...tilting at windmills, thinking he is a knight, etc. #TheSwordFight #SoaringScores

#SebastianKitty wanted in the photo too! #catsoflitsy

Cinfhen This is one book I‘m not interested in tackling #PageCountPhobia 3w
Librarybelle Totally understand, @Cinfhen ! 3w
ravenlee I‘ve tried to read this several times and never get more than a few pages in. Sigh. 3w

Tamra This past summer I enjoyed the first book mainly, but it seemed to get repetitive. Silly misunderstandings lead to shenanigans, repeat. Add in exaggerated chivalric love. 3w

Smart, funny and surprising satire entwined with a humane meta storyline. A thoroughly enjoyable #audiobook nimbly narrated by Vikas Adam.
