Hi there, I just joined your community to say something on The Ground Beneath Her Feet. I'm not really a fan of Rushdie, but I took a course on The Ground last year (yes, we actually spent eleven weeks analysing one book), and wrote my Bachelor's thesis on mythological references in the novel (for anyone who's interested, it's online at http://www.haywired.com/theground ).

I really liked the novel. In the beginning, you do not know what to expect, nothing makes sense and it is tempting to just put the book away and forget about it, but it is worth it to read on. There's so much in this novel, history, politics, mythology, music, so I'd certainly recommend it. You just have to find a way to enjoy the ambiguity, the references, Rushdie's games.
