Publisher's Summary

Discover Haroun and the Sea of Stories, Salman Rushdie's classic fantasy novel.

Set in an exotic eastern landscape peopled by magicians and fantastic talking animals, Salman Rushdie's classic children's novel Haroun and the Sea of Stories inhabits the same imaginative space as The Lord of the Rings, The Alchemist, and The Wizard of Oz. In this captivating work of fantasy from the author of Midnight's Children and The Enchantress of Florence, Haroun sets out on an adventure to restore the poisoned source of the sea of stories. On the way he encounters many foes, all intent on draining the sea of all its storytelling powers.

Great story and great story teller

I was very impressed by all of the character voices in this story. The writing was so imaginative that it inspired me to draw what I was listening to (and I am not an artist). The imagery was limitless and I’m so glad I got to experience this book through audible.

read on paper

Unfortunately, I did not enjoy this reader. When I picked up the paper cooy, it was fantastic. This reading really doesn't do it justice but rather makes it sound rather silly.
