Haroun and the Sea of Stories truly is one of the greatest books for children ever written.
It contains the most compelling, vivid, descriptive writing I have ever read, and the story and the memory of reading it haunts me still (I must have first read it about 10 years ago when it was first published)
Although it is a childrens book, this is a book not only for children. The magic of the story and its progression will transport even the most jaded of readers to a new understanding and appreciation of . . . well, everything.
This should be compulsory reading for everyone, everywhere
