As we all know Rushdie wrote this book for his little son to spread hope and confidence. It's his only wish to have his wife back and see his son again. But is his message he wanna communicate really as positive and simple as it seems to be? First even Rashid was sceptic about his wife's return but then he asked himself the main question. Does it really matter if his wife returned because of the Walrus or did she come back because of her personal will? Yes, because it changes the meaning of Rushdie's message completely. If his wife returned because of the Walruses magical power, Rushdie must have the opinion, that a family renuion like it happened in the book, is only possible with a unexpected and huge miracle. It doesn't sound very confident if you carry your high hopes on a miracle. Did he really believe in a happy ending for himself or did he already knew that this never gonna happen and wanted to protect his son of the hard reality? That's the reason why the whole ending appears in such an artificial light. Why would such a varied and surprising book have a foreseeable ending like that?As we all know Rushdie wrote this book for his little son to spread hope and confidence.
