Having only read Midnight s Children by this author before I was actually a tiny bit terrified of trying this one especially on audio It wasn t nearly as hard to follow so the audio ended up being an excellent optionThe story is told by a man named Rai and covers the time from his first sight of Vina until after her death It tells the story of two lovers Vina and Ormus whose music is so compelling that it changes the world Throughout the story we also know that Rai is in love with Vina and has been from when he first laid eyes on her We get his personal view of these famous lovers and their triumphs and tragedies It starts with Rai at the age of 13 and tells the stories of the families as well We get to know them as teens and we learn their life story from well before their musical talents were knownThe story is supposed to be a retelling of the myth of Orpheus and after a review of Wikipedia I can see where those elements come in Rushdie turns it into a very compelling story of love and loss and a world that got broken along the way
