Don't miss Salman Rushdie and Nicole Krauss at The New Yorker Festival.
Copyright ©1999 Salman Rushdie; Copyright (P)1999 NewStar Media Inc.
"No novelist currently writing in English does so with more energy, intelligence and allusiveness than Rushdie. Nearly every page of The Ground Beneath Her Feet offers something to arrest a devoted reader's attention: puns and wordplays galore . . . and enough literary echoes—of Joyce, Yeats, Frost, Dante, oh hell, of nearly everybody—to keep graduate students on the prowl through these pages for years." (Paul Gray, Time)
"Lusty, sprawling, acid-high. With it, Rushdie enters a new rawness, a different madhouse, America." (The Washington Post)
“a spirited, head-spinning entertainment from a writer of undeniable genius.” (Publishers Weekly)
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
This book is a classic, and the audio edit leaves out a major plot elements which make sense of the whole thing. Aside from that, it's well presented. But it's not Rushdie's book, it's a readers digest condensed version.
"Please give us the Unabridged!"
This would be a fabulous listen if only it were available as Unabridged. I was very disappointed it is only offered as abridged. The story doesn not work as abridged.
"Great Listen, more please."
Highly recommended! In his usual dazzling style, Rushdie writes... Audible should have more of his captivating works. Midnight's Children, The Moor's Last Sigh and of course, the controversial '..Verses'
