Check out my Haroun and The Sea of Stories book summary and Review that I created to help you understand the basics of this great book. Aaron and the Sea of ​​Stories is a 1990s children's novel by Salman Rushdie. It was Rushdie's fifth major publication and followed by The Satanic Verses. It is a fictional story that is so tragic and devastating in a city that it has forgotten its name.

Aaron and the Sea of ​​Stories is a metaphor for the various problems that exist in society in the modern age and especially in the Indian subcontinent. It looks at these issues from the perspective of the young hero Aaron. Rushdie dedicated the book to his son, from whom he had been separated for some time.

Many elements of the story deal with the issue of censorship: one issue that is particularly relevant to Rushdie because of the fatwas against him backed by Ayatollah Khomeini. The book is highly commendable and satirical in multiple languages. The names of many main characters indicate some aspect of speech or silence.

They were then taken by an artificial intelligence to the ‘sea of ​​stories’ named after the courier, nicknamed ‘Butt’. In the sea of ​​stories, Aaron learns that it is endangered by the opposition ‘Khattam-Shud’, who represents the “end”.

Haroun and The Sea of Stories book Review :

Aaron and the Sea of ​​Stories is a great adventure book. Written by Salman Rushdie, one of the world's most famous writers, this is no ordinary book.

Rashid Khalifa, a storyteller, lived with his wife, Soraya, and his son, Harun, in a tragic town in Alifbe. "Sadly, one of the cities is so bad that it forgot its name." Rashid's cheers were heard throughout the gloomy city. He was popularly known by two nicknames, Rashid the Ocean of Notes and Shah of Bla.

But a day comes when Rashid's wife leaves him. Then when I opened my mouth to tell a story, no story came. He can only say "Ark, Ark, Ark ..."

Will Rashid get his gift of gab back? Will Soraya return?

The part of this story that I like the most is the adventure that started after Soraya left. The story has become more exciting from there. I dislike the part where Soraya Khalifa leaves the family.

I would recommend this book to 10 to 13 year olds! I would rate this book 9/10. Want to tell the world about a book you read? Join the site and send us your reviews!
