Have you read Midnight's Children?

In honor of Banned Books Week, my lit group at school picked Salmon Rushdie's Midnight's Children for our next group read. I've been wanting to read this for quite awhile, so I'm thrilled. However, I had planned to listen to most of the group reads on my ipod from audible. I think, though, that this particular book might be one that I'll wish to own in hard copy and probably mark up while reading it. On the other hand, I do enjoy listening to the selections, and will definitely be able to finish it in time that way. Regardless, I want to be able to get the most out of it.

Anyway, for those of you who have read and/or listened to Midnight's Children, which would you suggest? Do you think it can be fully understood/appreciated on audio? Or is it better to be able to take your time with the text?

Thanks :)
