I was so enthralled by the dramatization that I want to read the original book now! Thank you BBC for making it so unique, it was like watching a movie! Also, I very much appreciated the interview with the author at the end.
BBC Radio 4 have dramatised Salman Rushdie’s 1981 Booker Prize winning novel ‘Midnight’s Children’ to mark the 70th anniversary of the Partition of India.
A superbly crafted story which in the 13 minute interview at the end, we learn took Salman Rushdie 5 years to write.
Another fantastic dramatisation by the BBC, I really enjoyed it. 5*

The performances were brilliant and it was easy to imagine the scenes.
I didn’t know the story and found myself having to hit rewind quite a lot, so that I could follow what was happening. There are a lot of characters and I felt that some of them had more to tell than there was room for in a short adaptation. Five hours or so is probably not enough for a story that takes place over thirty years. I think this adaptation would probably be more suited to those who have already read the book and know the intricacies of the story.
I did enjoy the book and I’m keen to listen to another Salman Rushdie novel soon.
