The Little Prince


The books I usually read are technology-related, biographies, and personal development. Every once in a while, I do stray and read something for a different genre.

I’ve never reviewed a book before, but I think this book is fitting for my first post on books. In all honesty, I can only describe it as a simple (but powerful) story of innocence, and how many (if not most) of us have been caught up in life, and forget that there are so many ways to look at things.

If you’ll dig around online, you’ll realize that behind the simplistic nature of the story, it’s inspired by the author’s life experiences. I’m always amazed at the depth of things that can be hidden under the simplest of stories.

The essence the story is:

One sees clearly only with the heart. What is essential is invisible to the eye.

I was given this book by my mom probably ten years ago. I’ve on mustered up the effort to read it recently. If you’ve read the book before, I guess I can only say that I got caught up in matters of consequence.
