One of those rare books that appeals to adults & kids alike.
'The Little Prince' by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry is a surprisingly complex story to convey a simple message. It is a combination of two tales that are intertwined together. One is of an adult aviator who has forgotten how to see the world through the eyes of a child. The other is of an interstellar boy who easily sees the foolishness of adults, but also must learn about relationships and love.
I summarised the book as follows. "It's definitely worth of the 'classic' moniker. It has planes, planets in outer space, a bunch of weirdos and a cool fox (what more does one need)! It's a nice reminder to find some childlike naivety and view the world through a new pair of eyes. A very solid book."
I hope you have a fantastic day wherever you are in the world. Kyrin out!
