    Flight to Arras by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (teknochik)
    teknochik: NObody seems to know this fabulous book. It is a reflective memoire by St Expery as he was piloting a reconnaissance mission over Germany in WW2. It is a beautiful commentary on war and what it does to humanity. Possibly one of the most hidden and understated gems of the 20th century. When I read this book, I suddenly understood "The Little Prince" with far more depth.… (more)

Definitely a book for children of all ages. The author's exquisite illustrations add to the story. A simple message that grown ups are very strange people who busy themselves with things that don't matter and that something you care for can become special to you. ( )

"Pero si bienes a cualquier hora, nunca sabré a qué hora preparar mi corazón"

Muchas líneas se han escrito sobre esta gran obra maestra de Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Y creo que mis palabras ya son innecesarias. Creo que es uno de esos libros que debería estar presente en cualquier librería o biblioteca personal.

Tras una avería seria, un aviador se encuentra en el desierto del Sahara. Por cierto, este hecho se basa en un accidente real que el autor tuvo en ese desierto en 1935 y en el que casi fallece junto con su copiloto. En el desierto se encuentra a "un hombrecito enteramente extraordinario" (p. 12) que le contará su aventura por el universo. A lo largo del libro, descubriremos muchas lecciones para la vida. Y en la edición oficial de Salamandra, podremos disfrutar de las acuarelas originales del autor.

Gran joya de la literatura que hará que miremos la vida de otra forma y que apreciemos como una boa se come a un elefante. ( )

Exquisite. ( )

I was not lucky enough to have been introduced to this book as a child, but I've heard so much about it I had a nagging NEED to read it. I am so glad I finally did! This is a sweet book filled with wonderful little life lessons that are all to often forgotten these days. The Little Prince is without a doubt a true gem that will stand the test of time. ( )

Antoan de sent Egziperi (1900) linijski i ratni pilot, poginuo 1944. kao pilot-izviđač, oboren od nemačkih aviona. Pored niza romana o pilotima ("Južna poštanska služba", "Noćni let", "Zemlja ljudi", "Ratni pilot") napisao roman "Tvrđava", te neobično poetsku knjigu "Mali princ". Egziperi neguje kult razumevanja i duboke moralnosti, razvijajući vanvremensku veru u moć preobražavanja čoveka i dosezanja do pravog saznavanja njegove prirode. Mali princ je knjiga za male i velike, napisana poput bajke ona otkriva utopijski svet kroz priču o dečaku dospelom sa udaljene i sićušne planete i njegovom traganju za odanošću i ljubavlju. Ovo je knjiga i o stvarnom svetu, o čoveku, njegovim zabludama i grehovima, o nevinosti u otkrivanju najdubljih i najdragocenijih vrednosti postojanja, koja svojom sugestivnšću i poetskom toplinom osvaja decenijama generacije mladih i odraslih čitalaca.

"Il Piccolo Principe" è una di quelle letture che entrano nell'animo del lettore. Antoine de Saint- Exupéry con il suo stile semplice e poetico mette il lettore davanti ad una riflessione sul senso vero della vita e sull'importanza di coltivare i sentimenti. Una fiaba senza età e per ogni età, da leggere e rileggere.
Vi segnaliamo la pagina del blog di Liberrima in cui parliamo del racconto dello scrittore francese:

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, most metaphysical of aviators, has written a fairy tale for grownups. The symbolism is delicate and tenuous. It challenges man the adult, and deplores the loss of the child in man.
added by Shortride | editTime (Apr 26, 1943)
 
"The Little Prince" is a parable for grown people in the guise of a simple story for children-a fable with delightful delicate pictures of the little Prince on his adventurings. It is a lovely story in itself hich covers a poetic, yearning philosophy- not the sort of fable that can be tacked down neatly at its four corners but rather reflections on what are real matters of consequence.

Once when I was six years old I saw a beautiful picture in a book about the primeval forest called "True Stories".
Quodiam die, cum, sex annos natus essem, imaginem praeclare pictam in libro de silva quae integra dicitur vidi; qui liber inscribebatur: "Narratiunculae a vita ductae."
Once with I was six I saw a magnificent picture in a book about the jungle, called True Stories from Nature, about the primeval forest.
