Product description

This is the mesmerising and controversial novel available for the first time as an unabridged audiobook. No book in modern times has matched the uproar sparked by "The Satanic Verses". Furore aside, it is a marvellously erudite study of good and evil. This book begins with two Indians plummeting from the sky after the explosion of their airliner, and proceeds through a series of metamorphoses, dreams and revelations. Rushdie's powers of invention are astonishing in this Whitbread Prize winner. 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.
