Innocence and imagination-tragedy and joy.

AdvantagesCan engender wonderful thoughts and feelings.

DisadvantagesCan also inspire great sadness: though this is not necessarily a disadvantage!

"The little prince is, paradoxically, an extremely famous book which many people reading this will not have heard of. It is a delightful story, which was originally written by Antoine de Saint-Exupery in 1943. He did not live to see it translated into English and published here the following year, for he died in 1944. Yet despite this, he is a national figure in France. He wrote many other books and essays, and during the occupation of France he was ..." Read review

"Only children know what they are looking for"

AdvantagesRemembering the truth

DisadvantagesAdults have forgotten the truth

"...stoopid Tazzy ramblings and onto the good stuff...the review, I have decided to re-write my first ever review, I really did not do the book any justice the first time round, so here goes! ~Gather round children, you might learn something new~ This is undoubtedly the most famous piece of work by the French author Antoine de Saint-Exupery, and although a children's novel has a lot of underlying, very adult, messages about perception, love, relationships ..."

Learning from children.....

AdvantagesCharming, and full of insight

DisadvantagesYou reach the end too quickly

"...a child. He never lost the sense of wonder that accompanies being either of those. A child, having failed to draw boa constrictors in a way the conveys the sheer horror of such creatures to an adult…submits to the real world and grows up. He becomes a pilot and, because “something broke” in his engine finds himself stranded in the Sahara, thousands of miles from anywhere. “So you can imagine my surprise at sunrise when ..."

My Bible

AdvantagesSimple yet profoundly deep

DisadvantagesNone

"You read the story once... it seems different, yet childish and shallow at the same time. Read it the second time... you find it's got meaning... Read it the third time... and you will realize the essence of your rat-race filled life. Or do you have to be a lab rat just like society tells you to be? This is one book (the only book)... which I hand out to my loved ones. This is a book which can change the heart of the toughest, meanest ..." Read review

The true meaning of life...

AdvantagesFor all ages

Disadvantagesnone

"...discover. I've grown with this book, the first time I read it I was only 7 years old and since then this book was always surprising me every time I read it. The little prince is like the child we have inside us and we forget most of the times... He doesn't understand why adults have certain attitudes and mostly why some (material) things are so important to them like have lots of money, spend all the time working, etc., instead of giving importance ..."

SHOULD BE COMPULSORY READING

AdvantagesMUST BE READ

DisadvantagesNONE

"...should read it again. Its the kind of book that needs to be passed on to a new reader like your Grandpa's watch. It does not talk down to children (no fluffy wuffy bunnies), so can be read by any age, but actually manages to make them think 'outside-the-box' and introduces some surprising philosophical topics which shames us into realising how dismissive of children we actually are. If you're the kind of person who thinks dolls and plastic tea-sets ..." Read review
