"From Salman Rushdie, one of the great writers of our time, comes a spellbinding novel that blends history, mythology, and a timeless love story. A lush modern fairytale in which our world has been plunged into an age of unreason, Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights is a breathtaking achievement and an enduring testament to the power of storytelling"-- "Once upon a time, in a world just like ours, there came "the time of the strangenesses." Reason receded and the loudest, most illiberal voices reigned. A simple gardener began to levitate, and a powerful djinn -- also known as the Princess of Fairyland -- raised an army composed entirely of her semi-magical great-great-great-grandchildren. A baby was born with the ability to see corruption in the faces of others. The ghosts of two philosophers, long dead, began arguing once more. And a battle for the kingdom of Fairyland was waged throughout our world for 1,001 nights -- or, to be more precise, for two years, eight months, and twenty-eight nights. Two Years, Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights is a masterful, playfully enchanting meditation on the power of love and the importance of rationality, replete with flying carpets and dynastic intrigue"--… (mais)

The language was beautiful but the characters were incredibly flat and honestly I was bored through most of this. This felt like a short story that got out of Rushdie's control. ( )

I am giving up on you as I can see that it will take me at least 1001 days to get it done. It has tired me. I get that this is magical realism, but it got boring. Life is too short.

Dalla quarta di copertina
Scoprire che l'ardore fisico di Dunia poteva essere mitigato dai racconti gli procurò un po' di sollievo. «Raccontami una storia» gli diceva spesso, rannicchiandosi tra le sue braccia in modo da averne le mani poggiate sulla testa. E in quelle occasioni lui pensava: "Bene, per stanotte sono fuori dai guai"

This book is suitably surreal and magical enough to be part of Rushdie's output. It revolves around jinn and humans coming in contact after a separation of a thousand years, and the mayhem that ensues. In the end, the fate of the world rests in the hands of one woman...and a couple of half human descendants. The main issue I have with the book is that it is almost all build up; the climax is over almost before it begins. The final epic battle is unsatisfying either as a battle or as a story. There are a lot of loose ends; that isn't always a bad thing, but in this case it sort of seemed like he just got to a point where he got sick of the story and said "the hell with it, I'll write an ending and be done". The ending was not worthy of Rushdie, though the rest of the book was. Overall, an easy and fun read. ( )

That was interesting. Very dense, a little disconnected, and a little strange, but an interesting take on the 1001 Nights storytelling tradition. 3.5 stars. ( )

What's frustrating is to see glimpses of Rushdie's very real talent. Lines stand out, a wife who "slipped out of history" when her husband abandoned her, "he took it with him when he left," an "old town of salmon minarets and enigmatic walls," a "heart filled with something that might have been happiness, but poured out of his eyes as grief." But this is his second extremely bad book in a row — consult Zoë Heller's incineration of his memoir "Joseph Anton," for further detail — and it's beginning to seem as if that talent may be in permanent arrest.

El sueno de la razon produce monstruos. The sleep of reason brings forth monsters. (Los Caprichos no. 43, by Francisco de Goya; the full caption in the Prado etching reads: "Fantasy abandoned by reason produces impossible monsters: united with her, she is the mother of the arts and the origin of their marvels.")

Very little is known, though much has been written, about the true nature of the jinn, the creatures made of smokeless fire.
