Book Review: The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

RATING: StarStarStar

Genre: Children’s > Fantasy

A pilot forced to land in the Sahara meets a little prince. The wise and enchanting stories the prince tells of his own planet with its three volcanoes and a haughty flower are unforgettable.

*****

I remembered i read this way back in high school but i could not i remember what it is all about. Memory can be weird like that. Anyway, The Little Prince did not charmed me like i thought it would. Still, there are bits and pieces there that got a smile from me. 

The scene that i really liked is when the little prince encountered the Lightsman (i hope i got that right). The logic behind the lightsman’s action is sound enough, and perhaps real enough compared to everyone else’s that the prince met. 

The ending is where I curled my lip in confusion. In my opinion, it was not fitting for a children’s book. Yes, in my mind, i saw the word suicide. Oh, well. I just tell myself not to read too much on The Little Prince
