The Little Prince Reviews
Και πόσο συγκινητικό!
Εντάξει, το παραδέχομαι, έκλαψα... λίγο.
Όσο το διάβαζα, χαμογελούσα σαν χαζή. Ευχόμουν να ξαναγίνω έτσι, αθώα!
Δεν ήθελα να τελειώσει με αυτό τον τρόπο, αλλά ξέρω ότι αυτό έπρεπε να γίνει.
Αγάπησα αυτό το μικρό βιβλίο για τα μεγάλα διδάγματα του και τα συναισθήματα που γεννά με τον πιο παιδικό τρόπο!
Θα το διάβαζα και θα το ξαναδιάβαζα και θα το ξαναδιάβαζα
Και θα το ξαναδιαβάσω
Ευχαριστώ για το τόσο όμορφο δώρο :)
So amazing. I can see many rereads of this in the years to come.
For a kid's story, this one has rather heavy-handed intentions embedded into a sophisticated system of symbols that exists to produce a strong & emotional effect. Like Voltaire in "Micromegas", Antoine de Saint-Exupery plays with sizes & scales, meddles with the allegorical and even plays with time. He knew, like an astute psychoanalyst, precisely which images to use to convey the mere representation of Mortality. Le Petit Prince is the Everyman who has a deep passion somewhere inside of ...more
this book was just as lovely the second time as it was the first. (and almost as great in english as in french.)
not sure if i can write extensively on this book. it's just so lovely and wonderful, and it really seems like one of those books that reveals another facet with every reading.
lovelovelove this one.

There's a huge place in my heart for this little world-in-a-book; I read it first when I was wee, again many times since. A review won't do it justice, so I'll quote one of my favorite passages and risk sentimentality:
"Nothing is perfect," sighed the fox.
But he came back to his idea.
"My life's very monotonous," he said. "I hunt chickens; men hunt me.
All chickens are just alike, and all the men are just alike.
And in consequence, I am a little bored.
But if you tame me, it'll be as if the sun ca ...more
Written as a children's book, I find myself unable to pin down firmly as to what makes The Little Prince such a universally likeable book, be it children or grown-ups. What makes it the Hotel California of literature?
Is it because most grown-ups secretly love being treated like kids? I think as a grown-up you ought to know better than that. Grown-ups like to be petted around now and then in jest, but that's the end of it. Often, when grown-ups are indeed treated like kids and they're not in the ...more
We are all children in adults bodies. Yes we are, don't think we aren't for one moment. The fact that we WERE, indeed, children, is a huge part of each of us. It is possible to shed a few appreciative tears on every page of this book if you entertain the thought that the pilot IS The Little Prince. Maybe you won't think that--maybe you'll have your own take on the book---that's the magic about it. This book is translated to English from French. If you understand and/or appreciate French, the del ...more
