Haroun and the Sea of Stories

Discover Haroun and the Sea of Stories, Salman Rushdie’s classic fantasy novel

Set in an exotic Eastern landscape peopled by magicians and fantastic talking animals, Salman Rushdie's classic children's novel
Haroun and the Sea of Stories inhabits the same imaginative space as
The Lord of the Rings,
The Alchemist, and
The Wizard of Oz. In this captivating work of fantasy from the author of
Midnight’s Children and
The Enchantress of Florence, Haroun sets out on an adventure to restore the poisoned source of the sea of stories. On the way, he encounters many foes, all intent on draining the sea of all its storytelling powers.

“Though there is darkness and silence at the center of Chup, most of
Haroun and the Sea of Stories is full of comic energy and lively verbal invention. . . .Though [the book] is sure to be enjoyed by children, it also contains amusements for adults.” --
The New York Times

Love, loss, family and the power of stories.
von Maren Mähnß aus Trier am 18.09.2015
Bewertet: Einband: Taschenbuch

A beautiful novel, a fairy tale as iridescent as the sea of stories and a declaration of love for all story tellers. Spiced with elements of One Thousand and One Nights and sharp sociological observations.
