The Little Prince - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry,Richard Howard

This book is wonderfully-written, majestically-crafted, and hauntingly beautiful. I loved every moment of it.

Last week, I listened to the audiobook version of this book, which was very good. Then I saw that it was an abridged version so of course I had to hunt down the full story. And here we are. I enjoyed this version more than the abridged version. The abridged version is good, but the whole story is so much more connected in the full version. It makes more sense. You get the gist of things in the abridged story, but this one is definitely more put-together. 

Also, the illustrations are lovely. I love how simplistic they are, yet still magnificent. 

Fantastic, fantastic story. 

I've been on a bit of a Little Prince binge now and watched the newest movie version last night. It is good in the way that the newest Lorax movie was good. It plays off of the original story and expands it. Not bad. Just different. 

Good book, great story.

The Little Prince: The Little Prince (Audio) - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry,Anthony Burgess,Louis Jourdan

I found a copy of this audiobook at the library and was so excited to read it that it wasn't until I put it in the CD player in my car that I realized it was an abridged version. At that point it was too late and I just had to listen to it.

I really enjoyed the book. It is very whimsical and fantastical. I loved the narration. An interesting story that is emotional and philosophical. The language used is fairly simple. It's no wonder so many French classes use this in their curriculum; I can see how it would be relatively easy to translate. 

A very good story that is entertaining and gut-wrenching.

Now I have to track down an unabridged copy to read the whole thing.

The Little Prince & Letter to a Hostage - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Antoine De Saint-Exupéry gave us a wonderful and peculiar story. The plot follows an aviator, who has crashed in the dessert! After further research, I learned that the author modeled this on his own experience. Because this text is a fable, I think it would be great to compare it to other classic fables. The teacher could then challenge students to write their own fables! I think this text could also be used while studying autobiographies. I recommend watching the Netflix movie!

What makes the desert beautiful,' said the little prince, 'is that somewhere it hides a well...

August 19, 1938: On this day, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, the author of The Little Prince, used a few card tricks to convince fellow French writer Andre Gidé that he was clairvoyant.

The Little Prince - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry,Richard Howard

I remember watching The Little Prince on VHS when I was young. The boa constrictor stuck with me, as well as the adults responses to the picture. It's one of the reasons I may have to grow older, but I refuse to grow up. I'm sure that I've read the book before, but it's been nearly as long as when I watched the movie. Reading this copy I decided that the book and the movie complement each other. Mostly, books tend to be richer than the movies derived from them, simply because they have more details. The fact that the whole book is made up almost completely of details instead of plot means that it translated well to the screen. I love the story, no matter the format, and I have to agree with the prince. Grown-ups are so strange.
