Luka and the Fire of Life

Read ☆ Luka and the Fire of Life í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB To steal the Fire of Life a seemingly impossible and exceedingly dangerous taskWith Haroun and the Sea of Stories Salman Rushdie proved that he is one of the best contemporary writers of fables and it proved to be one of his most popular books with readers of all ages While Haroun. I ve been meaning to try something by Rushdie for a while and the idea of trying something I hadn t heard of by him sounded appealing Especially since it s a fable like story set mostly in a fantasy world that s the sort of setting that most appeals to me I actually don t know much about the plots of Rushdie s other books just that there were a lot of objections to The Satanic VersesLuka and the Fire of Life is a fairly traditional fable in one way a boy seeing his father dying must uest for the magical item that will restore him to life and allow him to live But then there s also gaming Luka finishes levels gathers extra lives saves his game and modern puns like the whole section with the Respectorate of I and the Otters and the land of OTT where everything is well over the top It s an odd juxtaposition at times but I uite liked it and Rushdie can certainly turn a phrase I m going to read by him but I think I m glad I tried this first it s relatively short and unthreatening so it might well make a good gateway drugOriginally posted here

Review ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Salman Rushdie

Read ☆ Luka and the Fire of Life í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB IMAGINEyou are Luka a twelve year old boy who has to save the life of the storyteller father you adoreIMAGINEyou have two loyal companions by your side a bear called Dog who can sing and a dog called Bear who can danceIMAGINEyou must now embark on a journey through the Magic World. when i embarked on this i expected to like it just as much as i did Haroun and the Sea of Stories which was a solid 3 stars rating due to it being a children s book and its kind of messy absurdness i do like things to be absurd in a book but not chaotical there s a differenceso i had an already formed opinion about this it was going to treat on about the same subject continuing Haroun s story with that of his brother Luka in a magical world of their father s creation Rashid is a storyteller albeit a very good one the only man who can make you live in his stories and he stands for a simple principle no matter what tales shouldn t disappear from our world in here Rashid is going to be taken away by Death unless Luka the smaller brother he s 12 compared with Haroun who is now about 30 manages to steal the Fire of Life and bring it back to his father the only problem is the Fire of Life is probably the best kept thing in the entire magical world and its guardians are no normal powers but the controlers of time themselves Past Present and Future let s move away from the plot because it really is no than that and focus on the writing and the setting first of all it felt different than Haroun did it was much compact and sorted out and a lot appealing to a mature reader i can see the first one as a children s book than i can consider the latter to be a part of the same category there s a stylistic discrepancy that makes Luka stand out as a better crafted character and it affects on the world building in better rather than worse ways where in the first one you see Haroun motivated by the idea of saving the world by retrieving the stories Luka here is firstly motivatrd by saving his father so it reasons on a much personal level with the reader for Haroun s world i had a discussion with my history teacher if it would fit into the fantasy genre and i still stand strong behind the opinion that it does not fantasy doesn t mean just weird creatures and other worlds it means much than that it reuires imitation real ness personality and a ton of other traits that i was frankly unable to find in Haroun just because it s a children s book with a few other wordly monsters in it doesn t make it a fantasy story is what i m trying to say no Luka got closer not just from the register point of view but as a whole it was much easier to consider him a typical fantasy protagonist as he was much believable as a whole or it might just be me reasoning with him differently idk there s one thing that i have to talk about and it s the exact detail that made me give this book four stars and propelled it into the i really like this cloud mythology i am in love with anything that s connected with ancient gods and their meanings with their rise and fall and with their importance for a population at a certain time i look at them with respect not because i personally worship them but because they are our own creations meant to redeem ourselves i m bored with the single God that Christianity had than with the tens of Gods Ancient Greece had or Egypt or the Aztecs they fascinate me because of their yes absurdness they are a product of imagination and interpretation and i think that s what makes them special during his uest to find the Fire of Life Luka had to pass through a very different place in the magical world where all the forgotten Gods of our world resided after humans discarded of them you won t find no christian God nor Al Lah nor Buddha nor any other deity that is currently worshipped instead in this mistycal land you might bump into Hermes or Vulcan you might get scared by Ra who speaks in hierogliphs or have a nice chat with one of the Japanese wind Gods i mean let s be clear Luka meets with some of the only beings that managed to steal the fire from the Gods they differ from culture to culture the most important being the Elder the Titan Prometheus who stole fire for humans and suffered an eternity for it i m still not sure how he got out of his chains on the mountain to come help Luka but i was very happy and pleased when he showed up that was for me the best part of the story i believed it no actually not only that i believed it on paper i wished it were true the sheer amount of mythological creatures involved in this little work is astounding and i think gives it the special flare that separates it from Haroun

Salman Rushdie ☆ 6 Free download

Read ☆ Luka and the Fire of Life í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Was written as a gift for his first son Luka and the Fire of Life the story of Haroun's younger brother is a gift for his second son on his twelfth birthday Lyrical rich with word play and with the narrative tension of the classic uest stories this is Salman Rushdie at his very bes. Although I m not a fan of fantasy genre I think Luka and the Fire of Life is a well written novel with highly creative language and it is full of puns omg who doesnt love puns A very creative and dreamlike pieceThis book may appeal kids because it s some sort of video games where Luka embarks on a journey to the magical world in order to save his father s life However how childish and imaginative this may seem it is also kind of heavy as the author weaves the story together with philosophy politics social critics forklore and ancient myths Rushdie has created an entirely new take on the stereotypical child s journey by weaving it in diversities from cultures around the world Simply amazing
