Haroun And Luka

by Salman Rushdie, Haroun And Luka Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Haroun And Luka books, Haroun: Whatâe(tm)s the use of stories that arenâe(tm)t even true? I asked that question and the Unthinkable Thing happened: my father canâe(tm)t tell stories anymore. That means no more laughter in the city of Alifbay and now the place stinks of sadness. So itâe(tm)s up to me to put things right. If the water genie Iff can take me on the Hoopoe bird Butt all the way to Gup City then maybe, just maybe, Iâe(tm)ll be able to persuade the Grand Comptroller to give my father his Story Water supply back. Trouble is, that is strictly forbidden, one hundred percent banned, no way Jose territory... Luka: What do sea monsters eat? The Old Man of the River of Time: Fish and Ships.

Luka And The Fire Of Life

by Salman Rushdie, Luka And The Fire Of Life Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Luka And The Fire Of Life books, On a beautiful starry night in the city of Kahani in the land of Alifbay a terrible thing happened: twelve-year-old Luka's storyteller father, Rashid, fell suddenly and inexplicably into a sleep so deep that nothing and no one could rouse him. To save him from slipping away entirely, Luka must embark on a journey through the Magic World, encountering a slew of phantasmagorical obstacles along the way, to steal the Fire of Life, a seemingly impossible and exceedingly dangerous task. With 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 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 quest stories, this is Salman Rushdie at his very best.

Luka E O Fogo Da Vida

by Salman Rushdie, Luka E O Fogo Da Vida Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Luka E O Fogo Da Vida books, Embora possa ser lido de forma independente, Luka e o Fogo da Vida retoma os protagonistas de Haroun e o Mar de Histórias, romance de Salman Rushdie publicado em 1990: Rashid Khalifa, famoso contador de histórias, cuja imaginação prodigiosa o faz viver entre o mundo real e o mundo da fantasia; Soraya, sua mulher; e os dois filhos, Haroun e Luka. Neste novo livro, Luka tem doze anos e sonha em seguir os passos do pai e do irmão mais velho, que já se aventuraram pelo mundo da magia. É então que, sem querer, ele roga uma maldição contra um circo que visita a cidade, cujos animais são maltratados pelo dono, o Capitão Aag. Naquela noite, o circo é destruído por um incêndio. Mas o Capitão Aag se vinga, enfeitiçando o pai de Luka e fazendo-o cair num sono profundo, que acabará por matá-lo se o feitiço não for quebrado. Luka então descobre que o único jeito de salvar o pai é roubando o Fogo da Vida do topo da Montanha do Conhecimento. Ao longo da odisseia de Luka, uma impressionante variedade de mitologias se sucede. Além de ser populado por deuses gregos, romanos, astecas, hindus e nórdicos, o livro também faz alusão ao que se poderia chamar de universo mitológico moderno, como os filmes de Walt Disney, a trilogia De volta para o futuro e o romance Um ianque na corte do rei Artur, de Mark Twain. Escrito num ritmo ágil e com um humor evidente nos jogos de linguagem que temperam a narrativa, Luka e o Fogo da Vida é uma declaração de amor à fantasia, ao mesmo tempo em que chama atenção para as ligações entre imaginação e realidade.
