    One thought on “Shame”

    1. Shame a perfect tool of mass control for those who are shameless enough to use it Oh, for those of you who are not familiar with Salman Rushdie s storytelling skills even his characters suffer from confusion and dizziness while he is working on them Somewhat nauseous after the ride, I try to put two sentences together that make sense of the extraordinary reading experience I just had It is hard, though, for happens in a subclause in Rushdie s universe than other people manage to put into the wh [...]

    2. Shame is like everything else live with it for long enough and it becomes part of the furniture Salman Rushdie excerpt from the book.Oh, Salman, my beardy bunnykins gah You ve only gone and let me down AGAIN I revere Rushdie I even proclaimed him to be one of my favourite authors, right here on my profile page, alongside Dickens, M rquez and dear old Dumas But, alas, here s another book of his that cannot hope to rival the magnificence of Midnight s Children Set in a country that s not quite Pak [...]

    3. I reread SHAME this weekend and was once again reminded why Rushdie is one of the greatest authors of our time In Shame he addresses may levels but this last reading I focused on how he has intertwined the relationship of Shame throughout the levels of our human experience He draws his characters so that there many layered motivations and convoluted histories speak to than simply internal shame but also how actions on level produce effects that reach as broad as national politics and historical [...]

    5. 261 Shame, Salman RushdieShame is Salman Rushdie s third novel, published in 1983 Like most of Rushdie s work, this book was written in the style of magic realism It portrays the lives of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto Iskander Harappa and General Muhammad Zia ul Haq General Raza Hyder and their relationship The central theme of the novel is that violence is born out of shame The concepts of shame and shamelessness are explored through all of the characters, with main focus on Sufiya Zinobia and Omar Khayy [...]

    6. Between shame and shamelessness lies the axis upon which we turn meteorological conditions at both these poles are of the most extreme, ferocious type Shamelessness, shame the roots of violence Brilliant Just brilliant In this surreal parable, Rushdie makes a compelling case that shame is the perhaps the most important and overlooked influence on public and private life Shame is the paltry translation of the Arabic sharam, which protagonist Omar Khayyam Shakil s three mothers forbade him to feel [...]

    7. The overcaffeinated narrator of this exasperating novel brought me to the point where the obvious linguistic dexterity, the crazily exuberant frolic in words and wordplay taking place normally characteristics that earn my instant devotion made dragging myself through another page a masochistic exercise Too entertaining and amusing to abandon for the most part, the novel teased me past the point of no escape 200pp or so , and with each manic, madcap pr cis of the thousand events taking place in e [...]

    8. Dear Sir RushdieShame is an excellent satire written in your plainspoken magic realism prose, which has left me awestruck It is astounding how perfectly you lamented the political state of affairs in Pakistan with that of unrest of hypothetical country Q The chronicle of the shift in political powers and musings on deeper realms of human mind weaved together by an exotic language yet a quality prose is much appreciated.Authors would like to write a gripping story for masses, you write for your o [...]

    9. It was once explained to me by one of the world s Greatest Living Poets we mere prose scribblers must turn to poets for wisdom, which is why this book is littered with them The epicure against the puritan is, the book tells us, the true dialectic of history Forget left right,capitalism socialism,black white Virtue versus vice, ascetic versus bawd, in the Fifteenth Century God against the Devil that s the game I Loved Loved Loved it till infinity Soon I ll give a re reading to it again I loved th [...]

    10. Although I always list Rushdie as one of my favorite authors of all time, it had been almost ten years since I picked up one of his books So when I came across Shame in 12th Street books, I decided to dive back in.I loved the way that the story kept leaping ahead of itself, rushing ahead like an impatient child to tell you things that wouldn t happen until much later, and when they did happen how different they were from the expectations that had been seeded The narrator of Shame, like many of R [...]

    11. Shame o t tulo da obra de Salman Rushdie que podia ser um tratado pol tico ou religioso sobre o Paquist o, devido aos coment rios que o pr prio autor faz ao longo da hist ria Mas tamb m uma f bula sobre o bem e o mal, um relato da hist ria europeia oriental Principalmente este romance corresponde a um conto de fadas monstruoso, lembrando nos de hist rias como a Bela e o monstro ou Dr.Jkel e Dr.Hyde Mas nada semelhantes na sua ess ncia Conta a aventura da crian a macaco criada por tr s m es e de [...]

    12. Shame is an undesired sperm that impregnates human psychic with acute guilt and discomfort to procreate a shameless fiend amid continual cerebral labor pains Molded on a fictionalized caricature of Pakistan s opinionated and influential communal strata it incubates the embryonic mesh of brutality resulting in social and personal turmoil.Rushdie along with his emotive quandary constantly appears to be a lost child meandering on the South Asian political cultural perimeter With Satanic Verses and [...]

    13. A wonderful book I can see why so many people like Salman Rushdie I can also see why religious types may become offended Mr Rushdie has a wonderful style He really makes you feel like you are in Pakistan That women and men there are really like this His descriptions of the machinations of government and the women behind the men is absorbing In many ways, he reminds me of the magical realism of Gabriel Garcia Marquez.Can t wait to read my next Rushdie novel

    14. I am undecided as to award this book with fours stars or three It s a surreal story with some unforgettable characters It was surely worth the ride but I must confess that during the first hundred pages I was ready to shamelessly chuck it aside I am glad I didn t This is a story that ll stick with me for quite a while Ok 4 stars

    15. The controversy surrounding the reign and relationship of late Prime Minister of Pakistan Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and his Commander In Chief at the time, Zia Ul Haq has captured the imagination of the world for a long long time I had heard vague stories about this conflict as a boy but had never really understood what had ensued before and after the successful coup that Zia undertook, overthrowing Bhutto and becoming the President of Pakistan himself This was one of the primary points of attraction [...]

    16. From Midnight Children on, seems that Roshdie s preference moves tward the language rather than the narration itself Comparing The ground beneath of her feet and Midnight children one comes to a beautiful language but less interesting events .

    17. This was Rushdie s third novel which was an interesting story about violence and shame that brought me in contact for the first time with concepts of Sufism and the poetry of Omar Khayyam It was as always well written and easy to read and shows Rushdie s powers of narration growing in power and confidence.

    18. Shame the masterpiece of a master storyteller I have read some Rushdie in past and every book has been an eye opener Though his form of writing is technically called Magical Realism For me it s pure and simple magical mythical storytelling The way he writes is how ancient history is called as mythology He picks up historical situations whether India s partition in Midnight s children, Kashmir extremism in Shalimar the Clown, or Pakistan s politics in Shame and the characters turn into mythologic [...]

    19. Rushdie has a very unique style to his storytelling he narrates as a character outside of his tale, yet is wholly invested in it His tone is casual, imitating the convolutions of an orally told story with not all the bits told in order In this way, he plays with temporal and spatial linearity very freely, giving hints of the future in tantalising teasers but still manages to surprise the reader Shame is about politics, but it is also about families, and failures, and the fractures that can break [...]

    20. Probably one of the best things I ve ever been lucky enough to stumble across The country that s Pakistan but not Pakistan is an amalgamation of countries throughout history, and events in Pakistan are still clearly the focus It s an imaginative reworking of history in the style of magic realism, a polemic against theocracy and tyranny, with his main characters based on Zulfikar Ali Bhutto Muhammad Zia ul Haq and my God, it s brilliant I d do it a serious injustice if I attempted to write any ab [...]

    21. I absolutely hated the first half of the novel It seemed to drag on and on, introducing characters that I didn t find interesting in the slightest However, it is interesting to note that as the book progresses, as the characters become deranged and consequently, fascinating , I began to devour the book instead of checking how close I was to the end of a chapter every few pages.Rushdie s style is sometimes a bit verbose, especially if you re not paying very close attention However, he has added [...]

    22. yuck perhaps I m just not as intelligent as I thought, but, I hated this book There I said it And, I m just going to leave it at that.

    23. This was my first venture into the incredible mind of Salman Rushdie and I have to say he does not leave one wanting for lovely, metaphorical prose He has an intense, edge of your seat writing style that keeps the account moving along at a fast pace Set in an imaginary Islamic society, the book explores shame in all its variations The characters are swimming in its indignity from the outset Rushdie brings the seven deadly sins to life and then throws fury into the mix, creating quite an exciting [...]

    25. This was my first encounter with the obscure genre of magical realism and Rushdie himself The book is set in a fictional town of Pakistan or Peccavistan , although Rushdie elucidates that it can be any country because no one is immune to shame, even the shameless It is an uncomfortable part of human existence which insidiously haunts our lives.The book s central plot deals with the relationship between Iskander Harappa and Raza Hyder, which are allegorically based on two of most influential poli [...]

    26. This book was stolen before I could finish it I was using a picture of myself holding a puppy as my bookmark Someone was shameless enough to steal a copy of a book titled Shame, which held a photo of its rightful owner and a puppy Sharam Sharam Sharam.
