Born at the stroke of midnight, at the precise moment of India's independence, Saleem Sinai is destined from birth to be special. For he is one of 1,001 children born in the midnight hour, children who all have special gifts, children with whom Saleem is telepathically linked. But there has been a terrible mix up at birth, and Saleem's life takes some unexpected twists and turns. As he grows up amidst a whirlwind of triumphs and disasters, Saleem must learn the ominous consequences of his gift, for the course of his life is inseparably linked to that of his motherland, and his every act is mirrored and magnified in the events that shape the newborn nation of India. It is a great gift, and a terrible burden.

Recensioner i media

"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 * "'Salman Rushdie has earned the right to be called one of our great storytellers.' Observer"
