    Not crazy about this one. Rushdie has a great command of the English language, and his writing style flows nicely. I just didn't like the story itself. I wonder if people really think the way his characters do, as though sex were a tonic for whatever ails you. I guess, in the end it illustrates the destructive power of sex misused.
