Synopsis: Moral allegory and spiritual autobiography, The Little Prince is the most translated book in the French language. With a timeless charm it tells the story of a little boy who leaves the safety of his own tiny planet to travel the universe, learning the vagaries of adult behaviour through a series of extraordinary encounters. His personal odyssey culminates in a voyage to Earth and further adventures.
This books talks about a man whom encounters the Little Prince and the events are told from his point of view. I don't want to talk to about the plot because, for the most part I am a firm believer that it is better when you read a book without knowing much about it beforehand.
This book just fills you up with warmness and shatters your heart and soul at the same time. I feel like while reading this book I grew a bit, if that makes sense. It has that effect. It has a lot of magical symbolism that I found very refreshing and beautiful. The book also contains moral lessons. I think a lot of people would be able to associate many situations and experiences in their life. It made me smile and it hurt me. To sum it up, it is beautiful. I think that this book is not meant to be read once. You need to pick it every once in a while.
One important aspect to me of the book is the rose.
ah the rose.
