Aaliya's Book Club - Salman Rushdie 'Two Years Eight Months'
Join us again for this week's book club, where we will be reading Salman Rushdie's magical novel ‘Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights.”
The book is based in a universe where jinn, “creatures made of smokeless fire,” move freely between their world and ours, interacting, manipulating, and even falling in love with humans. But when the veil between these worlds falls war threatens the world.
The novel spans over a thousand years, instigated by a love story of a jinni and the real-life philosopher Ibn Rushd. Exploring the tension between religion and rationalism, Rushdie moves seamlessly between fantasy and reality.
Rushdie’s writing is always good for a discussion, tackling taboo subjects, rich in references, and easy to read.
