    Summary Haroun and the Sea of Stories By Salman Rushdie – Kindle, DOC or Book Download 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 t

READ & DOWNLOAD Û Haroun and the Sea of Stories Salman Rushdie ✓ 1 READ & DOWNLOAD REVIEW Haroun and the Sea of Stories 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. 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 hankering for times past but I m glad I did It has the powerful mythical feel of traditional fairy tales with plenty of nods to classics and a political undercurrent that tells of the time he 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 his son but didn t notice the actual dedication or consider the timeline However I wasn t far into the book before I felt compelled to check It was published the year after the fatwa that sent Rushdie into hiding though he d long since split from his wife His son Zafar was 10 or 11 In that context the dedication is heartbreakingZembla Zenda XanaduAll our dream worlds may come trueFairy lands are fearsome tooAs I wander far from viewRead and bring me home to youI also wish I d noticed the pages at the back that explain the names of many of the characters most of which are derived from Hindustani sicStoryThe key message is the power and importance of stories even if or particularly because they are not true You see the link to the fatwa Haroun is the son of a great storyteller who loses the power of storytelling The story is a uest to turn on the storywater tap It is set in an other world with a child as the hero If this were an adult novel it would be classed as magic realism It has an old fashioned and Indian feel but also features robotic birds and passing mention of aliens UFOs and moons I won t summarise the plot but it has all the elements you want and expect from a book like this fantastical creatures enigmatic lyrical characters juxtaposed with logical prosaic ones dashes of humour a maze of corridors mistaken identity occasional puns and Malapropisms pussy collar jee psychology love betrayal impossible dilemma princess rescue disorientation lucid dreaming a battle time dilation derring do funny names telepathy wishes a baddie who explains his plan to the captured hero magic a gadget complete with arbitrary timeoutFree speech Je suis HarounThis is about the fun of stories and the importance of believing even what you can t see but it s not just about that There is a clear message about the right to speak The arch enemy of all stories is also the arch enemy of language itself to the extent his followers have their lips stitched up What could be a powerful symbol of censorship that the Sign of the Zipped Lips Is not the Power of Speech the greatest Power of all Then surely it must be exercised to the full Not forgetting this is a children s book the example is a general who accepts insults and insubordination The risk to those in power is that inside every single story there lies a world that I cannot RuleBut the importance of free speech doesn t mean one should always speak unthinkingly Haroun realises that Silence has its own grace and beauty just as speech can be graceless and ugly Actions could be as noble as words As in so many things we need discernment One of the problems Haroun encounters is the deliberate poisoning of the storywaters by dark forces You can put an ecological spin on that but it s not the main messageEven a non baddie has had some stories changed to make him the hero Who owns our heritage Can we rewrite itThe magic of the story can restore spiritsNote Although this was written in the aftermath of the fatwa it s an issue Rushdie covered less obviously in his earlier novel Midnight s ChildrenLiterary linksThese ones I spotted there may well be others It s only now I collate them that I realise uite how many I found I may be guilty of over analysing Douglas Adams People always trust Rashid the storyteller because he always admitted that everything he told them was completely untrue Unlike the politicians who want him to speak at their rallies This logical inversion is slightly like Wonko the Sane from So Long and Thanks for All the Fish There is also P2C2E a Process Too Complicated To Explain which summoned H2G2 to mind Graham Green On discovering his mother had left Haroun s reaction was the rather tangential destruction of his clock I was reminded of a short story called A Shocking Accident in which a boy on learning his father was killed by a falling pig asks what happened to the pig The Beatles There are eggheads and a character called Walrus but I didn t spot the carpenter Tolkien The Floating Gardeners look rather like amphibious ents Kafka The Plentimaw Fishes are described as Hunger Artists they swallow stories and then create new stories in their digestive systems See A Hunger Artist The Shadow Warrior s first spluttered utterances are Googogol and Kafkafka Gogol I ve not read Gogol but he gets a mention alongside Kafka above Shakespeare A boy page is actually a girl in disguise Lewis Carroll The pages dressed like pages rather than playing cards and associated trumpets brought Wonderland to mind as did the logical illogicality of organisations One character asks Haroun Why make a fuss about this particular impossible thing The Red ueen famously believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast Jonathan Swift The antagonism between the Guppees and Chupwalas has echoes of that between the Houyhnhnms and the Yahoos Mary Tourtel et al The Plentimaw Fishes talk in rhyming couplets like the captions underneath each picture in Rupert Bear stories Philip Pullman In the dark world shadows can be separated from their owners rather like Lyra and her daemon Pantalaimon Monty Python or JM Barrie A knight fighting his own shadow made me think of the dark knight in The Holy Grail but given that he s not fighting his shadow I suppose Peter Pan is the obvious connection One Thousand and One Nights There s a houseboat called Arabian Nights Plus One Aladdin The Water Genie has a magic wrench which Haroun takes so the genie follows him round helping him out trying to get it back Joseph Conrad The evil one sits at the heart of darkness I might be trying too hard with that one it s a common enough phrase The Duchess of York aka Sarah Ferguson Pollution of the storywaters includes an outbreak of talking helicopter anecdotes and Budgie the Little Helicopter was published the year before this uotes The sad city that had forgotten its name stood by a mournful sea full of glumfish which were so miserable to eat that they made people belch with melancholy even though the skies were blue The Ocean of the Streams of Story because the stories were held here in fluid form they retained the ability to change to become new versions of themselves to join up with other stories so that unlike a library of books it was not dead but alive The Floating Gardeners do maintenance Untwisting twisted story streams Also unlooping same Weeding They re also like hairdressers because the longer stories are the likely they are to be tangled Pouring out of the portholes came darkness they had invented artificial darkness Shades of the satrical Dark Sucker Theory
