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 e encounters many foes all intent on draining the sea of all its storytelling powers Rst novel To Zafar that Rushdie wrote after The Satanic Verses This story is about a celebrated storyteller The Shah oh Blah who loses is talent for improvising stories when Elämän ja kuoleman kentältä – Sotarunoilija Aarni Suursalon vaikutelmia vapaussodasta his wife leavesim His son Haroun is unwillingly pulled into theadventure involving an arduous journey to the sea of stories to vanuish a powerful enemies and reclaim The Reluctant Heiress Lone Star Legacy his father s gift of gab Silence is the force of evil in this story the suashing of language fantasy satire even the truth itself There are allegories and lightearted commentary woven into the tapestry There are people we must defend on principles such as freedom of expression The story is full of reflections about the importance and fantasy myth nature and storytelling There s a treat for those who recognize the meaning of Indian words which are also given to most of the characters and who know about the role of gestures Mudra made oftenby green painted performers in Indian Kathakali dancing Enchanting profound delightfully whimsical and Les Osismes Peuple de l'Occident Gaulois highly recommended for all ages 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 wordplayRu 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 andaving 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 L'Europe et le mythe de l'Occident hold up the explainationsaroun 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 Calvinists Incorporated Welsh Immigrants on Ohio's Industrial Frontier University of Chicago Geography Research Papers haroun worke seems to be working with a greater sense of direction and structure a great example of this for me was ground beneath The Kitchen Linens Book Using Sharing and Cherishing the Fabrics of Our Daily Lives her feet while once again wordy in my opinion groundung together as great art while not well read enough to consider myself a rushdie scholar i suspect that aroun 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 What s the use of stories that aren t even true I m not uite sure why I picked this up it s a children s book and my child was 21 last week perhaps I m ankering for times past but I m glad I did It as the powerful mythical feel of traditional fairy tales with plenty of nods to classics and a political undercurrent that tells of the time e wrote itIt would be perfect to read to a child of around 7 to 10 over a couple of weeks twelve eual chapters but as a solo adult I enjoyed the wistfulness of a childish read coupled with something much profound Before you startI vaguely knew this was dedicated to is son but didn t notice the actual dedication or consider the timeline However I wasn t far into the book
