Haroun and the Sea of Stories review ´ 3 Alternate cover for this ISBN can be found hereDiscover 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 Rus. 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

Haroun and the Sea of Stories review ´ 3 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 ?. 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 explainations haroun is still written with all the mastery that rushdie shows as a writer but this compression as a children s tale turns coal into a diamond also in rushdie s post haroun work he seems to be working with a greater sense of direction and structure a great example of this for me was ground beneath her feet while once again wordy in my opinion ground hung together as great art while not well read enough to consider myself a rushdie scholar i suspect that haroun is the pivotal career changing work of one of our age s most notable writers so beyond being a great book i think that it is an important book importantly though it s fucking fun
