The Little Prince
The Little Prince: And Letter to a Hostage | Antoine De Saint
11 posts | 33 read | 3 to read
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. Letter to a Hostage, which contains certain themes that were to appear in The Little Prince, is Saint-Exupery's optimistic and humane open letter to a Jewish intellectual hiding in occupied France in 1943.

A thought-inducing, sad, and wonderful short book. I‘ll certainly have to read it a few more times.

This whole page about the warfare between the sheep and the flowers has always been my favourite in all literature, the previous page starts it with: "The flowers have been growing thorns for millions of years. For millions of years the sheep have been eating them just the same. And it is not a matter of consequence to try to understand why the flowers go to so much trouble to grow thorns which are never of any use to them?..."

And 58 minutes later I have finished off this book. I found it delightful, and could image it being a beautiful book to read with children, but I don‘t think I‘d read it again solo. 🦊
