    The Satanic Verses bent my brain funny I thought Rushdie had some good prose the ideas were interesting but the surrealism combined with moments of silliness made for an odd mix and in the end I left satisfied but disoriented like I'd eaten an exotic mealHaroun and the Sea of Stories was Rushdie's attempt to write a children's book for the son he was estranged from There's a certain sadness to the tone of the book wherein a storyteller l

Haroun and the Sea of Stories

Hdie's classic children's novel Haroun and the Sea of Stories inhabits the same imaginative space as The Lord of the Rings The Alchemist and The Wizard of Oz In this captivating work of fantasy from the author of Midnight’s The Satanic Verses bent my brain funny I thought Rushdie had some good prose the ideas were interesting but the surrealism combined with moments of silliness made for an odd mix and in the end I left satisfied but disoriented like I d eaten an exotic mealHaroun and the Sea of Stories was Rushdie s attempt to write a children s book for the son he was estranged from There s a certain sadness to the tone of the book wherein a storyteller loses his ability to do his job and his son must travel through the world of stories to get it backMuch like Clive Barker I consider Rushdie to be a good author who should stay far away from children s writing It brings out the worst in him While the writing itself is good it s goofy in ways that most children would probably find annoying and lacks the depth or bite to keep most adults involved Everyone has silly names most of them have silly descriptions and over all the book just felt frivolous Children s literature at its best can have real bite and emotional impact but unfortunately Rushdie s effort feels like tourism to the genre There s plenty to like about the author I have Midnight s Children sitting on my to do pile but if anything else comes out from him with a children s book branding I m going to have to pass
