It contains explanations for many of its allusions and non-English words and phrases and aims as well at providing a thorough explication of the novel which will help the interested reader but not substitute for a reading of the book itself. Many links are provided to other sites on the Web where further information can be found." This site was written by an English professor.

Salman Rushdie's Satanic Verses
http://www.indiastar.com/jsamuel.html
This uncomplimentary review points out that Rushdie was not the first to dangerously speak out through literature against orthodox Indian Muslims. It asserts that Satanic Verses is a fairly unremarkable book by an occassionally thought-provoking author and that it's acclaim owes more to censorship than to literary merit. "Rushdie's novel seems to be innovative. It is not. The Satanic Verses is perfunctorily a complex work from which the hard world of experimentation and the testing of ethical, ideological or philosophical narratives is absent."
