Reviews - The Prophet - Kahlil Gibran

This is a classic title reworked with a wonderful design to appeal to those who haven't heard of Gibran, and also to those who may appreciate this beautiful, fresh approach to his work. Despite being w...

“Not a Typical Prophet”

published 23/03/2001

Thought provoking words of wisdom on the mysteries...

A matter of personal opinion

Ciao have put this enigmatic little book in the ‘philosophy’ section but it is not that easy to classify. If it is philosophy then it is very simple philosophy but with a sort of ‘shallow’ depth. According to the back cover of my copy The Prophet is “the most famous...

Super

A good read and quite uplifting

Available for free on the net.

The Prophet is the work of Kahlil Gibran. It has been classed at philosophy, although I think it would have been better qualified as poetry. All the lines are written in verse rather than a prose style. Plus it does not really pose any kind of argument. There is not really a story to the Prophet...

My best friend leant this book to me once because she said that it was right up my street and that I would love it. She was right. Kahil Gibran is a poet and a philosopher and has written many book slike this one. It is an amazing story of man named Almustafa, the prophet, who has waited 12 years...

“A Must Read”

None, it is a wonderful book

Those who have not read any of Kahlil Gibran's work, and who are unfamiliar with the man, would surely find "The Prophet" a worthy introduction. It is an intensely spiritual work, written as a simple tale. Gibran's writing offers solace when one's mood is low, and is a worthy modern book of...

“Sublime”

published 18/07/2000

Beautifully written and profound content

None

If I had a choice of only ten books to take with me onto a desert island this would be one. Kahlil Gibran, the Lebanese poet/artist who died in his early 40s from tuberculosis, is a consummate writer. In this book he reached the peak of his gifts. The artwork is simple but effective with delicate...
