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
Pero qué cosa tan más hermosa.
Tengo un vago recuerdo de haberlo leído cuando estaba pequeña, pero ni de cerca me impactó como me ha impactado ahora.
'one sees clearly only with the heart.'
sometimes i fall into a mood where i am simply tired of life. where i just want to crawl under the duvet with a cup of tea, hug a book and never let go. 'the little prince' is that book for me. its a truly special treasure. its precious. its my rose.

Debo reconocer con orgullo que recién termino de leer a mis 43 años este libro maravilloso y he recorrido sus páginas con los ojos de un niño y no como parte del mundo de los grandes.

Hoy dormiré pensando en esa rosa que atesoro y que es Martina, mi hija.
Lo esencial es (y no es) invisible a los ojos.
[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 Icelandic; and I have a couple of Icelandic friends. But none of this had ever come to anything. Last week, however, Jupiter aligned with Mars and I entered the Age of Aquarius. I'd just finished reading Tolkien: Maker of M ...more
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 India. It used to publish literary articles and stories. My father got official copies and he brought them home regularly. One issue contained this story, and he gave it to me for reading. I was maybe 10-12 at that ti ...more
كتاب لذيذ، شهي، عذب، لامسني في أعمق شغافي، في طفولتي. فتنني وعشقته، يندرُ أن أقبّل كتبي - إذ يجب التحفظ قليلا مع هذه الكائنات - ولكنني قبلتُ هذا الأمير الصغير، وردته ونجمته وبراكينه الخامدة، قبلته في قلبه.
