I'm not positive that I read these after high school, but I think I did. They weren't as rivetting for me as the earlier fantasy books I'd read, not sure if it was the historical fiction genre change or what. But I definitely liked them. I don't think I read the other Pendragon books though, just these first 3.
If it weren't for book club, I never would have gotten through this. For one thing, I do not like magic realism at all so I never fully bought into the power of the main character's clogged nose. I should have realized immediately that this book wouldn't be for me when a review I read on Amazon compared it to 100 Years of Solitude which I also could barely get through. That said, I still give it 2 stars and not 1 because I really felt like it was an accomplishment to finish it. I just wished Rushdie explained more about what was going on in India at the time. I'm not familiar and as a result couldn't understand a lot of what he referred to.
Best book in the whole series. Can't wait to read midnight sun
