As stated in the other reviews, this book does not have the magic that "Haroun and the Sea of Stories" did, however, saying only this sells the book short. It is still brilliant, witty and downright funny at points, Salman Rushdie does not disappoint with this sequel. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who has read the previous instalment.

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

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.
