About the book

image4.3/5.0

First published in 1943, The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry has been translated into more than 250 languages, becoming a global phenomenon. The Sahara desert is the scenery of Little Prince’s story. The narrator’s plane has crashed there and he has scarcely some food and water to survive. Trying to comprehend what caused the crash, the Little Prince appears. The serious blonde little boy asks to draw him a sheep. The narrator consents to the strange fellow’s request. They soon become friends and the Little Prince informs the pilot that he is from a small planet, the asteroid 325, talks to him about the baobabs, his planet volcanoes and the mysterious rose that grew on his planet. He also talks to him about their friendship and the lie that evoked his journey to other planets. Often puzzled by the grown-ups’ behavior, the little traveler becomes a total and eternal symbol of innocence and love, of responsibility and devotion. Through him we get to see how insightful children are and how grown-ups aren’t. Children use their heart to feel what’s really important, not the eyes. Heart-breaking, funny and thought-provoking, it is an enchanting and endlessly wise fable about the human condition and the power of imagination. A book about both childhood and adulthood, it can be read as a parable, a war story, a classic children's fairy-tale, and many more things besides: The Little Prince is a book for everyone; after all, all grown-ups were children once.

I mean, IT’S THE LITTLE PRINCE! Read it for school in Catalan, but it was so cute I read it in one sitting. Adults are dumb, so true. 🙄

This is a great adult book, honestly. Kids wouldn’t appreciate the messages or understand them deeply enough until much later. 10/10 — for universal truth

If you do not think about the text, it seems that this is just another children's story about a prince and non-existent lands. However, this fairy tale has such a huge success not only among children, but also among adults. Reading the book between the lines, you involuntarily understand that the author meant something more. Not just about the Prince's journey around the world. Something more important - a story about love, about people, about life. Each of us is hidden behind the image of the Little Prince, and we all have a planet, big or small, we have peace. We all have what we love. I'm madly in love with the Little Prince, because he causes me a storm of emotions: from love to tears. I was pleasantly surprised that when ive reread the story, I managed to understand and discover something new - something that I hadnt noticed before. The book can be cited because almost every sentence has a subtext that I think will resonate with anyone who reads the book. My favorite is: “You can’t see the most important thing with your eyes…” (or it was written differently... no matter i just absolutely recommend this book to read it at least once)
