In 1990 Salman Rushdie wrote "Haroun and the sea of stories" for his first child Zafar, now twenty years later he wrote another fairytale but this time for his second child the twelve year old Milan.
Luka the left handed hero of the story is twelve years old. "You are a child of many gifts." But he has always been jealous of his brother, because Haroun once took a journey to the sea of stories. But then one day on a night with a thousand stars his father Rashis Khalifa, the shah of blah, falls asleep, and seems never to wake up again. So the boy along with his pets, Bear the dog and Dog the bear finally makes his own journey. "You' ve reached the age at which people in this family cross the border into the magical world." And there Luka has to steal the fire of life. This has only been done once before in the history of time. It was the Titan Prometheus whole stole the fire, and Zeus punished him for his theft severely. But Luka wants to try it. "If a thing had never been done before, that only meant it was still waiting for the one who could pull it off."
What makes "Luka and the fire of life" so different to "Haroun and the sea of stories" is Rushdies combination of the stories from 1001 Nights, Myths and Legends with the virtual world of computer games. Luka is an ordinary boy, who likes to listen to the stories of his father, the Shah of blah, but he also likes to play games for hours on his computer. And his mother Soraya isn' t pleased with this.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
