This is a magical story! One of my all time favorite books from now on.

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.

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.
