Original language: English Was the book good? I'm an avid reader, I read lots of classics and long books, but this was the hardest book to get through I ever read. I just found it incredibly boring, which is a shame, because the premise is intriguing. Is it good for this challenge? Yes, if you like Rushdie's writing.
