whi9le enjoyed this story, it did not compare to the previous story haroun and the sea of stories. also, you should read that one before this one or it will not make as much sense

3.0 out of 5 stars luka and the fire of life does not sizzle, Jan. 4 2011
By 
This review is from: Luka and the Fire of Life (Hardcover)
sadly, this sequel to the magical "Haroun and the Sea of Stories" has neither the latter's depth nor artful imagination. The language is very flat, the characters seem hastily spun together and the tale is quite limply spun around a thin metaphor that considers the question of a father's mortality. If I were Rushdie's second child (this work was apparently written in his honour, as Haroun was written for his first son), I would feel a little shortchanged.
