This is another Arabian Nights type tale replete with catch phrases, comical names, and Burma Shave type slogans. Mysticism, magic, and fantasy galore in this twisted dream-like tale that is, to me, an Eastern version of Vonnegut. i am finally beginning to enjoy his stories.
What an entertaining read. Haroun features great colorful characters and dun scenes. A wonderfully inventive tale written by the same author of the Satanic Verses. Rushdie ahs a major sense of putting words on paper. So intelligent, so well-read, and so well-made. The book shines of insights of freedom and ideas.
A wonderfully whimsical and humorous fantasy adventure filled with imaginative and fantastical characters. I Couldn't help envisioning it as an animated feature. Beautifully written. It's the first Salman Rushdie book I've read and I'm very interested in exploring his other works now.
