It depends on the reader.
Mr. Rushdie's narration in the third person was quite successful and clear. Mr. Dastor's American accent was terrible.
It was a well written and fine biography.
I really liked this book as an account of the life of Mr. Rushdie, especially during the Fatwa. It was interesting and thought provoking. However, listening to the audio version, I found the constant list of individuals attending parties, visiting, etc. long and confusing. I knew some, but not others, and it was often difficult to place them.
