So Iff the water genie told Haroun about the Ocean of the Stream of Stories, and even though he was full of a sense of hopelessness and failure the magic of the Ocean began to have an effect on Haroun. He looked into the water and saw that it was made up of a thousand thousand thousand and one different currents, each one a different colour, weaving in and out of one another like a liquid tapestry of breathtaking complexity; and Iff explained that these were the Streams of Story, that each coloured strand represented and contained a single tale.

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 Gulliver's Travels, Alice in Wonderland, and The Wizard of Oz. In this captivating adaptation for the stage, 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.

I teach 8th grade English as a charter school with an accelerated curriculum. This book is the best-kept secret for us English teachers, as it's a wondrous story for teaching close readings for symbolism, magical realism, characterization, and allegory. And yet, because there are so few online resources for it, I don't have to worry my students are plagiarizing assignments off Shmoop, eNotes or Cliff notes. I've written my own study guides and Power Points, tying it in with lessons on the fall of the Berlin wall and the Iranian fatwa against the author so we could broaden our discussion of censorship and free speech.

Both my South Asian and western students feel like this story speaks to them with its singsong English idiom, likable young hero, easily accessible symbolism, strong elements of fantasy, and numerous allusions to everything from the Beatles to the 1001 Arabian Nights. I highly recommend this to anyone -- adult or adolescent -- searching for an engaging read that crosses cultural and genre boundaries.
JUST DO IT
This is one of my favorite books! Rushdie wrote it for his son, whom he couldn't see because he was living in hiding to escape assassination during the infamous "fatwa" period of his life. It's a charming story that is a "children's story" in the same way that Alice in Wonderland is a children's story (but enormously better!) You need to get through about the first 20 pages before you get hooked--then you get hooked! This is a fantasy adventure story and a passionate defense of freedom of speech. It was written by a gifted author who was separated from his family because what he had previously written (The Satanic Verses) had deeply offended religious fanatics who put out a contract on his life. Rushdie later wrote another book for his other son called Luka and the Fire of Life. I highly recommend that too!

This has to be one of the biggest surprises I've had lately. A family member was assigned this book for school, so I got to read it and wow what a colorful and imaginative ride! I was aware of Rushdie and thought of him as a more academic, purely literary type that college professors would promote, like Milton or James Joyce or one of those many authors who force you to slow down your reading in order to get their points.

Well this is nothing like that, it is more like a roller coaster but with better emotional payoff. The story and setting are colorful and the plot twists fresh and unexpected. Characters are unlike any you've met before, and the dialogue and narrative are full of puns and playfulness. And beneath it all? Tons of subtext and allegory, woven in so expertly that you literally could just ignore it and still have a fun read. But if you take the trouble of going back for the inner meanings and symbols and whatnot (like they were doing in the school assignment) you find meaningful, thoughtful and somewhat moving messages that enrich the total experience.

Why this book is not more famous, I don't know but as literature it makes the Wizard of Oz (which is supposedly allegorical, too) look dull and awkward by comparison, even taking into account the century of literary change in between. Haroun is perfectly fine for young readers but there's no reason for adults to miss out.

My advice: don't be thrown off by the long, analytical reviews and don't expect that you have to think like a college student to enjoy this. Just grab a copy, open it up and begin. Don't load it down with expectations. Just read -- you will have fun!

Do not be intimidated by the fact that this was written by Salman Rushdie and all that may imply. He is a great author and this is an excellent book to start with. It is short and many layered. It was written as a bedtime story for his children. I did not know this when I bought the hardbound volume years ago. after reading it, I wondered if my five year old daughter might enjoy my reading it to her at night. I asked her to promise to allow me to read the first two chapters before she decided if she would let me go on. I received an enthusiastic request to read all of it.

In addition to being appealing to children - it is funny at time; it is an adventure and it is picturesque - it is about the creative process (writing in particular) and enjoys twists on popular western cultural icons and names as well as labels. It carries sophisticated jokes and word play that is pleasing to children on one level and to adults on another. Almost in the manner that Rocky and Bullwinkle appeal across age ranges.

I purchased the digital version and am going to create an audio book for my daughter at her request. She is now out of college...

I was assigned this novel for a college postcolonial literature course a few months back. I surprisingly really enjoyed this novel.

Not only is it filled with vivid imagination, unlikely metaphors, and inventive allegories, but it mirrors Rushdie's very own reality. Plagued with a real-life FATWA after his release of "The Satanic Verses," the novel uses the importance of binaries: Speech and Silence, the Light versus the Dark, to address his feelings towards the unruly censorship tied to the Fatwa.

Freedom of speech is also addressed within the novel. I actually wrote a paper critiquing the use of allegories, but seriously! the quarter just ended and the last thing I want to do is write a lengthy review! Just a great novel, pick it up :)

Very unique allegory that flowed into a fun read. The ending was no real surprise, but how it got there did not allow me to put the book down. At 66 years old, I wasn't sure this novel was for me. A first rate pleasant surprise.

A wonderful story about a boy who goes on an adventure to help his dad after the family begins to fall apart. While I chose the "Light-Hearted" tag for the mood, this book is so much more. It's poetic, fluctuating, and very thought-provoking. It challenges the topics of the environment, pollution, good versus evil, fantasy versus reality, imagination, and so much more. This book is a wonderful pick for anyone.
