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...
"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 -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Bibliothekseinband.

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 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.)
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.
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
