Whilst "The Little Prince" might be the third most-translated book in the world and voted the best book of the 20th century in France, it did absolutely nothing for me. As I was reading it all I could think about was what a pompous little sod the little prince was . . . was something was lost in translation? However, I did give an extra star for the illustrations - they were charming.

Glad I got around to reading this magical book before I became "one of those."

read in English 1/1/1976 or so

read in French 8/1/1988 or so

(the only thing I ever did manage to read in French, so I will hold the triumph proudly)


For some reason, pilots seem to make very good writers. It is an odd little story, and an easy one to mock, but I'm still quite fond of it.
