Book Review: The Satanic Verses

The Satanic Verses
The Satanic Verses by Salman Rushdie

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Beautifully written, inspiring, yet disturbing. This was in no way a light read but I am thankful to have read it.

There are many aspects of this book that remain ambiguous. Was Gibreel really an angel? Who is the narrator? God? Why was Saladin given a second chance when Gibreel wasn’t? Did Ayesha lead her followers to Mecca or to death? What did Saladin’s father see before he died that terrified him?
