In this remaking of the myth of Orpheus, Rushdie tells the story of Vina Apsara, a pop star, and Ormus Cama, an extraordinary songwriter and musician, who captivate and change the world through their music and their romance. Beginning in Bombay in the fifties, moving to London in the sixties, and New York for the last quarter century, the novel pulsates with a half-century of music and celebrates the power of rock 'n' roll.

I found this book at a second hand store and had never read any of the critically renowned works of Salman Rushdie. I was sadly disappointed. I read the first 100 pages and found myself skimming over most of the prolific prose just to find the story line. I skipped ahead into various parts of the rest of the book and found that it wasn't going to get any better. I should have saved myself the time, but at least I know not to pick up another book by the same author.
