    MOBI sharkmotorcyclehelmets.co.uk ð The Ground Beneath Her Feet Epub Þ The Ground Epub / ground kindle, beneath pdf, feet epub, The Ground book, Beneath Her pdf, Ground Beneath Her free, The Ground Beneath Her Feet KindleI walked away from this book with many feelings but principal among them was boredom I have seen a lot of people labelling Tolkein's work as self indulgent Tolkein my friends was lyrical His book had heart soul His characters were weighed down by destiny and the strength of their choices Rushdie in the other hand is self indulgentI have read The Moor's Last Sigh Shalimar the Clown The Enchantress of Florence The Satanic Verses and The Ground Beneath her Feet by Rushdie and this was the book that let me down It had nothing of the erudite restraint of the Moor's Last Sigh the magical realism and haunting mysticism of Shalimar the Clown the uirky historical mystery of The Enchantress of Florence or the delicious ambiguity of The Satanic Verses The Ground Beneath her Feet is a rant Rushdie's attempt at retelling a great love

    MOBI sharkmotorcyclehelmets.co.uk ð The Ground Beneath Her Feet Epub Þ The Ground Epub / ground kindle, beneath pdf, feet epub, The Ground book, Beneath Her pdf, Ground Beneath Her free, The Ground Beneath Her Feet KindleI think Rushdie can be a bit daunting sometimes because he's really an intellectual through and through He fills his writing with countless references to mythology and history in a way that I find rewarding but some may find difficult Rushdie creates the story of a band and music that grows to epic proportions We follow the story of Rai a photographer who falls precariously in love with Vina in India while still very much a boy He basically devotes his whole life to Vina and the language is so strong that by the end you forget that these characters really are fictional and didn't exist Ormus who Vina is also in love with immediately recalls Freddie Mercury of the band
