As we all read in the papers salman rushdie's book "The Enchantress Of Florence" has been struck off the list for the most prestigious literary award--The Man Booker Award, while fellow indian author Amitav Ghosh's book "The Sea Of Poopies" has been nominated......
 
what do you think that the winner of bookers of booker salman rushdie should have nominated or not?
 
i have read both Sea of Poppies and The Enchantress Of Florence
 
i personally liked Sea Of Poppies better because i thought The Enchantres...... was not upto Mr. Rushdie's mark
 
 
What Do You Think About His Not Being Nominated?

Interesting topic, but I haven't read either book so I can't really answer the question.  But I'll try to get my hands on the books and see how I like them.
