Mrs. B. at The Literary Stew, Arti at Ripple Effects and Meredith at Dolce Bellezza are organizing a group read of Salman Rushdie’s Booker of Bookers prize winning Midnight’s Children starting in March. I’ve been meaning to get back to this novel for years and find this a perfect opportunity.
From The Literary Stew post:
Since Rushdie won’t be an easy read we decided to take this very slowly so this will be a long and relaxed group read. We don’t want it to interfere with other reading plans. The book has 533 pages and is divided into three parts with the second part being the longest. We’ll begin in March, and for four months at the last day of each month we’ll post our review.
Here’s the exact schedule for postings:
- March 31 — Book One
- April 30 — Book Two (Part A ending with ‘Alpha and Omega’)
- May 31 — Book Two (Part B starting with ‘The Kolynos Kid’)
- June 30 — Book ThreeAs you can see we’ll have more than enough time to get through the 533 pages. If you’d like to join, please let us know and take note of the schedule above. We’ll do a reminder post in early March.
