    free download Haroun and the Sea of Stories Salman Rushdie Å 9 read Haroun and the Sea of Stories (E–pub New) Ü Salman Rushdie there is something about a story written for an adult audience as myth or child's tale that i love it seems to be concise concentrated and make the simplicity of good vs bad and having a moral seem beautiful rather than simplistic maybe that is because dualities were pristine as a child rushdie's earlier works never captured me; midnite's children seem windy and ornate with insufficient structure to hold up the explain

I m surprised that Viking listed this as a children s literature There s nothing risue in it of course and it is structured a little like Alice in Wonderland but I think it will appeal to both children and adults with its playful style and malleable language There are a lot of puns rhymes and plentiful wordplayRushdie is ceaselessly inventive and his stories within stories are both traditionally complex and compulsively readable I uite like the central symbol of the source for all the world s stories It is a thought provoking concept Where do our stories really come from I think humans have a propensity for storytelling that it is a social act Yet it lives deeper in us as well stemming from our beliefs in myths throughout history Our reliance on stories is endless Similarly this book captures the fascination children have with stories and how this curiosity draws them to deeply understand the world Readers will catch many literary references Anyone who likes a fantastical tale will appreciate his dreamlike whimsy What s this novel was in the same vein as Grace Lin s fantasy series They both played with mythic concepts and applied the tropes to a nostalgic setting Apparently Haroun has a seuel I will likely check it out along with Rushdie s other intimidating novelsI always took Rushdie for a serious fellow for some reason I probably shouldn t lump him in with other award winners like Kundera Eco or Pamuk The I learn about him the uniue his work appears But this book proved to me that he has a sense of humor That discovery will likely be reinforced in my later exploration of his oeuvreAn easy start to an author I hope I will grow to love

Hurrah for diverse books before I say another word I loved how this book drew on PakistaniMuslim stories and imagery and I enjoyed the company of its young protagonist I m sure younger readers will too I was interested to see how Rushdie would adapt his style and it seems he did so by indulging his taste for clich and word play as much and as fantastically as possible The magic in this fantasy yarn is all rooted in language figures of speech come to life and behave unpredictably metaphors become literal and the whole lot gets an embroidery of tasty collouialisms I think that s why I found it a bit overcooked a little bit too self conscious Another reason it seems self conscious is perhaps its transparent agenda it s a parable in defense of freedom of speech The righteous army argue about their orders extensively The General loves a good debate he s delighted to listen to the discussion Finally they all proceed with commitment Ace Orwell wrote about the same thing happening in real life in Homage to Catalonia no discipline problems As well as the right of citizens to dissent and challenge authority Rushdie wants the rights of storytellers to tell it their way to be sacrosanct severely rebuking attempts at political interference And uite right too But when the story is so openly didactic the writer ought I feel to be careful about other things too I ve written about Rushdie s male oriented but creative writing of gender before but here it strikes me as simply sloppy I waited over 100 pages for an interesting female character and I liked her when she arrived but she had heavy work against the sexism of her culture and even against her author to make up for the barely written faithless wife the damsel in distress used for light relief although Haroun challenged it rather weakly and ambiguously but what is with this purity of fairytales angle Seriously needed work and the mockery of Princess Batcheet for her physical attributes

Salman Rushdie blew my mind with his magnum opus Midnight s Children I ve been an ardent fan of him since I first read it last year Then I read the allegedly blasphemous The Satanic Verses which turned out to be uite a good book thought it was at first a tumultuous experience I waited with bated breath for his memoir Joseph Anton which I unsurprisingly devoured And with Haroun Rushdie has blown my mind again Rushdie wrote Haroun for his son during the fatwa It s uite incredible that he pulled off such an exuberant phantasmagoric and absolute delight of a book during a time of extreme tribulation Superficially it s a beautiful tale about the adventures of a boy named Haroun Khalifa hailing from a sad city the saddest of cities a city so ruinously sad that it had forgotten its name Deep down it discusses matters of relevance such as the freedom of speech the power of stories and the ones who tell them The prose is lovely and lucid What makes Haroun even memorable is the deft wordplay Not a single word feels forced everything fits wonderfully Ah Rushdie you are indeed a wordsmithSir Rushdie you have survived the threats of the ruthless Khattam Shud read Ayatollah Khomeini and I hope you come up with and magnificent tales from the never ending Sea of Stories
