I'm still learning around here, so I didn't know what it took to be book of the month. That's definitely good to know. I am going to have to ponder this one a bit more. Most of the books I read are part of a series. I don't do that on purpose, that's just how it turns out.

Having read this one as soon as it was made available, I fully support this nomination. I have read a few Rushdie but this tops off as one of my favourites. A complicated web of interconnected stories and characters, different "universes", powers, and unusual occurrences pulls the reader into the story at each page. Pick this one!
