    We are all children in adult 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 Li...

    Great observations, but personally I think it's overrated. It practically begs the reader to come to the conclusion that if you don't "get it" it's your own fault because you're a "grown up, and only kids can see what matters." It's heavy handed, clumsily executed observations on what'...

    A "Daddy/Daughter nighttime reading hour" review This was a toughy for me to review. I wasn't sure of the best perspective from which to provide comments so as to be of assistance to my fellow readers since this is a children's book (rather than YA which would be reviewed purely on ...

    [Original review, Jul 24 2018] This month, three plotlines in my life collided. I know Swedish and Norwegian well, and I'd thought vaguely from time to time that I'd like to learn Icelandic too; I've always been a great admirer of Tolkien, and I knew he had been interested in Icelan...

    The Little Prince is the one book of my childhood that truly wrecked me. Wrecked me, irrevocably. It is the one story that I swore I'd never read again. I didn't. I hadn't. I never read it to my son, either. Then, last week, my middle child, my oldest daughter, discovered the ...

    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 hi...

    I have read only three books which I felt were magical: One Hundred Years of Solitude, To Kill a Mockingbird and this one. However, what separates this from the other two is that this is a book for all ages. There was a magazine called "Imprint" (now defunct) during my childhood, in...

    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 rea...

    A little review for little prince: Once you get over the hyped mystique and granduer too often hitched to this little book, I think it's not a stretch to look at it for what it is. The more appropriate title should be: How To Train A Little Fascist. Aside from being obviously sentim...

    I'm having one of those awkward moments where I, um...I just don't get it. Look, I've never been good with metaphors and absurdism books. I just get left in a small puddle of confusion. I think this book just wanted to say that adults suck because they don't listen to children. Which c...

    Review After Re-Reading - February 9, 2012 Rating: 3 stars! Although I still liked it, I have to lower the rating by two stars because:1. The book is really intended for children as it is very whimsical and illogical. We husbands cannot give an empty wallet to our wives and tell...

    First read: August 2016, Rating: 4 stars Second Read: September 2019, Rating: 4 stars This was undoubtedly one of the most charming and beautiful things I have ever read! I clearly lived a very deprived childhood (lol) and had not previously read this, before reaching my twenty's, ...

    It was the first time in quite a while that I'd seen my uncle. He had crossed the country to visit us. When he reached our house, he hugged and kissed us all, then pulled out the English version of this book. "This is for you," he said, "and on the next starry night, I'm going to read...

    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 rea...

    A little review for little prince: Once you get over the hyped mystique and granduer too often hitched to this little book, I think it's not a stretch to look at it for what it is. The more appropriate title should be: How To Train A Little Fascist. Aside from being obviously sentim...

    I'm having one of those awkward moments where I, um...I just don't get it. Look, I've never been good with metaphors and absurdism books. I just get left in a small puddle of confusion. I think this book just wanted to say that adults suck because they don't listen to children. Which c...

    Review After Re-Reading - February 9, 2012 Rating: 3 stars! Although I still liked it, I have to lower the rating by two stars because:1. The book is really intended for children as it is very whimsical and illogical. We husbands cannot give an empty wallet to our wives and tell...

    First read: August 2016, Rating: 4 stars Second Read: September 2019, Rating: 4 stars This was undoubtedly one of the most charming and beautiful things I have ever read! I clearly lived a very deprived childhood (lol) and had not previously read this, before reaching my twenty's, ...

    It was the first time in quite a while that I'd seen my uncle. He had crossed the country to visit us. When he reached our house, he hugged and kissed us all, then pulled out the English version of this book. "This is for you," he said, "and on the next starry night, I'm going to read...

    We've just been in Italy for a couple of days, and luckily there was a bookshop a few doors down from the place we were staying. I bought some Italian books to try and make some progress on this language where I am still a total beginner. One of them was Il piccolo principe. Well......

    Book Review 3 out of 5 stars to The Little Prince, a French children's story written in 1943 by Antoine de Saint-Exupry. Have you ever read a book that was translated into your native language and thought, "I've lost some beauty and meaning in this version?" That's how I feel ab...
