Everyone should be a Salman Rushdie fan, and all Salman Rushdie fans will love this book.

I liked Midnight's Children and The Satanic Verses though the writing is often over-the-top. Haven't read Fury yet, but the opening line of this review from The New Republic is memorable:

"Fury, a novel that exhausts negative superlatives, that is likely to make even its most charitable readers furious, is a flailing apologia."

of course, The New Republic has some serious political axes to grind, especially when it comes to the Middle East, and is generally unreadable in its own right
