The trailer for Salman Rushdie’s Luka and the Fire of Life (on sale today) is so fantastical and fun that I’ll just let it speak for itself:
As BookPage reviewer Tony Kuehn notes, this novel—a sequel to Haroun and the Sea of Stories—is best suited for children ages 10 to 13. However, he writes,
underneath the pithy writing and pop-culture-laced references lies a stranger, more adult undercurrent. There is darkness, there is fear and there is a subtle admission that the world of our children is more nuanced and far more advanced than we sometimes care to admit.
That comes through in the trailer, no?
Will you read Luka and the Fire of Life? Have you seen any good book trailers lately?
