A lovely, sad little fantasy
am 30. Juli 2000
One of my favorite short books, this is more of a short story or a children's story than a real novel. All the same, it's so beautiful that sometimes I have difficulty reading it.
A man has crashed in the desert, and out of nowhere a little Prince appears. The Prince talks to him and keeps him company, while also telling him of his travels. The Prince is truly charming, a wise little boy who captures the heart immediately, and his stories and observations have the otherworldly quality of a dream.
At the same time, there is a sadness that permeates the book-somehow I felt that it could not end happily, and that made this story all the more precious.
This is a book that is shoved with the children's literature, and I believe that it is often overlooked by adults who would benefit from the simplicity of the Little Prince.
