The Little Prince Reviews
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 its own merits). After a short session of "what should I do," I bravely decided to punt, figuring that there are already more than enough excellent reviews of this without my clogging up the cyber arteries with another ...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.

WHEN A ROSE IS NOT A ROSE
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.
I plan to read The Little Prince since many time ago, and I was aware that it was a quick reading, but still I hadn’t do it yet, until now.
I went to the cinema theaters and I watched the new animated film about it, and while I hadn’t read the book, I watched the film and I loved it. I was aware that it wasn’t an exact adaptation per se, and then I knew th ...more
Un libro que adquiere distintos significados dependiendo de la edad en que lo leas:
*De niño: una historia entrañable sobre un príncipe que busca conocer el mundo.
*De adolescente: una historia sobre el crecimiento y lo que denota ser adulto. Se trata, quizá, de una advertencia.
*De adulto: al contrario de lo que muchos creen, para mí es claro que El Principito no está escrito ni para niños ni para adolescentes, sino para el adulto promedio. Así, El Principito se transforma en un recordatorio agóni ...more

In a grimy underground locked public toilet The Little Prince wakes slowly, he’s been out cold for hours. He’s bleeding from a gash on his upper arm. He finds he is chained by leg irons to the wall. There is another person sharing his predicament. It’s a bear, also chained to the opposite wall. In the center of the floor is the corpse of what appears to be donkey in a pool of blood. Near the corpse are a gun, a tape recorder and a saw.
“Grownups are very strange,” said the Little Prince to himse ...more
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 them that there is our salary inside and expect them to be happy. Honey, here is my wallet, what is essential is invisible to your eyes!...more
2. Saint-Ex contradicted himself so several times via his characters. For example, he
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 sentimental it was also a bit boring. I refuse to let my kid read it.
