The Satanic Verses

British author Salman Rushdie was awarded knighthood on Sunday in Queen Elizabeth's birthday honours list for his service of literature. The Islamic world immediately recalls a death warrant on him with lucrative award.

I read the controversial novel "The Satanic Verses", frankly I have stopped flipping the pages after going through 1/3 of the book. The story was so dull (do not expect any commercial element). A simple topic occupied pages to describe the details. Secondly my English level is simply too poor to understand his powerful vocabularies, causing me losing interest on it.

P/S: I do not know which part of the novel has committed blasphemy against Islam…
