Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Salman Rushdie is one of the best contemporary writers of fables and parables, from any culture. Haroun and the Sea of Stories is a delightful tale about a storyteller who loses his skill and a struggle against mysterious forces attempting to block the seas of inspiration from which all stories are derived.

Here's a representative passage about the sources and power of inspiration.

So If 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. Different parts of the Ocean contained different sorts of stories, and as all the stories that had ever been told and many that were still in the process of being invented could be found here, the Ocean of the Streams of Story was in fact the biggest library in the universe. And 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 and so become yet other stories; so that unlike a library of books, the Ocean of the Streams of Story was much more than a storeroom of yarns. It was not dead, but alive. "And if you are very, very careful, or very, very highly skilled, you can dip a cup into the Ocean," Iff told Haroun, "like so," and here he produced a little golden cup from another of his waistcoat pockets, "and you can fill it with water from a single, pure Stream of Story, like so," as he did precisely that...

Praise for Haroun and the Sea of Stories:

"This is, simply put, a book for anyone who loves a good story. It's also a work of literary genius."—Stephen King

"I enjoyed this adventure story.…It involves you at once and keeps you reading, and so it should, for it’s from the same magic land as Sinbad, The Thousand and One Nights, The Golden Fleece."—Doris Lessing

"Fantastical, funny, whooping through drama and comedy, good and evil, introducing creatures delightful or frightening, this joyous and tender book is a whole Arabian Nights entertainment."
—Nadine Gordimer, The Times Literary Supplement

"A lively, wonderfully inventive comic tale . . . [Rushdie's] own Sea of Stories from which he drew this entertaining and moving book continues to flow as clear and brilliant as ever."
—Alison Lurie, The New York Times Book Review

Praise for Penguin Drop Caps:

"[Penguin Drop Caps] convey a sense of nostalgia for the tactility and aesthetic power of a physical book and for a centuries-old tradition of beautiful lettering."
Fast Company

“Vibrant, minimalist new typographic covers…. Bonus points for the heartening gender balance of the initial selections.”
—Maria Popova, Brain Pickings

"The Penguin Drop Caps series is a great example of the power of design. Why buy these particular classics when there are less expensive, even free editions of Great Expectations? Because they’re beautiful objects. Paul Buckley and Jessica Hische’s fresh approach to the literary classics reduces the design down to typography and color. Each cover is foil-stamped with a cleverly illustrated letterform that reveals an element of the story. Jane Austen’s A (Pride and Prejudice) is formed by opulent peacock feathers and Charlotte Bronte’s B (Jane Eyre) is surrounded by flames. The complete set forms a rainbow spectrum prettier than anything else on your bookshelf."
—Rex Bonomelli, The New York Times

"Drool-inducing."
Flavorwire

"Classic reads in stunning covers—your book club will be dying."

When you read Haroun and the sea of Stories, the thing you marvel at is Rushdie's imagination for starters, his wonderful wit, and the way he weaves words into a wondrous tapestry.....its a PROCESS TOO COMPLICATED TOO EXPLAIN :)
A brilliant story, an all time classic. You never wish for it to end..and when it does, and you close the book and drift off to sleep, the story picks up again in your dreams....After reading Haroun, you'll have the most relaxing night of sleep in a long time.

Haroun's father is a storyteller. Now everone tells stories now and then, but Rashid Khalifa does it for a living. And he is good at it. But this doesn't impress young Horoun, who thinks he is just telling a bunch of tall tales, and says so. But then his father, the famous „Shah of Blah", looses his gift. Haroun is swept away by Iff the water genie to visit the ocean of stories and bring the gift of storytelling back to his father. But, as always with a good story, ther's more to that...
„Haroun and the Sea of Stories" is one of the best books ever written. It is funny, enchanting, even wierd at some points, and it grips you and never lets you go again. If you don't believe me, ask my mother, or my brother, or my friends or anyone who has read this wonderful book!It rivals "The Last Unicorn", which, coming from me, is saying a lot! (Dies ist eine Amazon.de an der Uni-Studentenrezension.)

A wonderful children's tale. A political satire. A fable of freedom of expression. Wonderfully written. Extraordinary use of words.

An enchanting childrens' story that readers of any age will enjoy. This was the first Rushdie work that I read. It is a great primer of Rushdie's writing style, which, in it's dramatic changes of rhythm, setting, pace, and even language, can be a bit hard to follow to the unfamiliar reader. A future bedtime story for whenever I have children of my own....

'Haroun and the Sea of Stories' tells the story of the storyteller Rashid Khalifa and his only child Haroun. Rashid is well known and beloved, because he carries fortune and happiness into the hearts of people. He also touches or warns them with stories of great emotion or morals. Rashid tells stories of princesses and magicians. Rashid Khalifa is the Ocean of Notions, the famous Shah of Blah - or should I say 'was' for Rashid has lost his special ingredient of storytelling - the Story Water (but that's a P2C2E - a Process Too Complicated To Explain)...
Haroun told his father that there is no use in telling a story that is not true - that broke his father's heart and he lost his skill of storytelling. Now it's up to Haroun to help his father: He travelles with the Water Genie Iff to the second moon of Earth...
Salman Rushdie tells us a wonderful story of great emotion and enchantment. He borrows from many different sources and authors like Jule Verne or even The Beatles. I loved the book with its sad and funny moments. It is one of the best books I've ever read.

Format: Taschenbuch
Though I have read and enjoyed novels from On the Road to The Shipping News to The Iliad, I keep coming back to this simple, charming, lucid masterpiece. The children-oriented theme might put off some adult readers, but not those who can still remember what it was like to be a child, to have hopes and dreams, and to want, even if you can't anymore, to believe in stories. I didn't believe that stories when I read Haroun, but more than any other book, it has made me see the power of a good story. It didn't change my life completely or anything nearly so drastic, but it did help to restore my faith in good books and fun stories and encouraged me to keep reading. I read it for the first time during my sophomore year in high school, and now as a college student, it remains my favorite. Please, read this book. You won't regret it.

Having no idea what to read for my Englisch literature list for school, I asked a teacher for help. He said he liked Rushdie a lot and that I could read it with no problem. It was indeed a great pleasure to read Haroun and the sea of stories as it takes you to other dimensions than you usualy expect in a dream. But it is not only a dream, but also a comparison with real life, good and bad, nature and evil. If you want to walk in this other dimension, than this book is recomended.

This is another terrific story for those who loved the Polar Express. It is a imilar tale of adventure inside a story framework with real effects in the world outside. It is humorous in sophisticated ways, and meaningful.
I highly recommend the book on tape, read by the author. I actually heard this before I read it, and Rushdie's narrative style is ideal for a story such as this. It's also my son's favorite story in the car
