    The world renowned author of The Satanic Verses and The Ground Beneath Her Feet, Salman Rushdie is a Whitbread Award winner and recipient of the Booker Prize. His first truly American novel, Fury is a metaphorically rich black comedy that reflects the pressure-cooker of modern life. Malik Solanka, irascible doll-maker and retired historian of ideas, suffers the pain of wanting without knowing exactly what it is he wants.

    David says: "surprisingly good"
    "Tedious but well-narrated"
    Overall

    I've never read Rushdie before, but I had high expectations. Although it's well written, to me the story was very contrived. I had to force myself to listen through to the end, and then I was glad it was over. His critical observations of the productive mechanisms and psychological ramifications of Western capitalist society were tedious. Maybe I missed something. Rushdie is a good narrator though.
