170. Midnight’s Children, Part 3

170. Midnight’s Children, Part 3

A novel that’s profane and silly and over the top and pretty much a masterpiece–Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie. Our heroes have plenty of thoughts about this one, as they finally delve into the nitty gritty. Is this an angry novel? Is it political? Is it good for Christians to read the darn thing? Will it become part of the canon? Why does Brandon like it so much? Listen to find out.

Next week, we’ll wade into Narnia one last time, and then we’ve got some stuff to wrap up the year before 2020 begins with War and Peace (a wonderful novel that is totally worth the effort, by the by).
