Venneh Posted January 4, 2016 Report Share Posted January 4, 2016 Hey, why not. Reposting the one I finished on the first of the year. The Enchantress of Florence, Salman Rushdie: My first Rushdie novel. I honestly wasn't that impressed with it; the tales that are woven together to form the narrative feel like they were separate novel ideas that he couldn't fully flesh out, so he threw them together here and then threw in a way to try and weave them together. Doesn't really stick the landing in doing so. The best way I can describe this book is as really pretty, but it doesn't have too much more substance than that. There are historical figures woven in throughout, and it feels like it's trying to be about something really grand and lofty, but I just found myself rolling my eyes.
