    DescriptionWinner of the Man Booker Prize 1981 and the Booker of Booker Prize 2008 as best novel ever to win the Man Booker Prize, this is Rushdie's most loved book available for the first time in audio. 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. This recording is unabridged. Typically abridged audiobooks are not more than 60 per cent of the author's work and as low as 30 per cent with characters and plotlines removed.

    "A masterpiece of post-colonial literature." Metro "The result is a book that feels not unlike anything written before, but also anything written since... it's exhilarating." The Daily Telegraph "Huge, vital, engrossing... in all senses a fantastic book." The Sunday Times"
