A book for everybody

Assalamualaikum and hi.

Do you ever want to read but you don't have time or you don't want thick complicated book. At the same time it must be an interesting one. This 74 years old classic is going to be parfaite for you. 

If I could recommend one book that is easy, fast and really riveting. This would be it. The Little Prince, a beautiful classic by Antoine de Saint Exupery is the most translated book in French. Generally perceived as children book, this love and journey themed fable never lost its wonder throughout centuries.

The Litte Prince is a timeless charm for everbody and the drollery will connect you in every possible social complexity. This modern classic is like a fine wine. I'm not going to write lengthy review here as many great reviewers have written excellent critic out there.

What's better?  It is only 86 pages of story. Kalau convert ke A4 dalam 30 pages. That's the best part! (and I'm sure there's free pdf out there)

Here's an excerpt and quotes from the book:

Grown-ups love figures. When you describe a new friend to them, they never ask you about the important things. They never say: 'What's his voice like? What are his favourite games? Does he collect butterflies?' Instead they demand: 'How old is he? How many brothers has he? How much does he weigh? How much does his father earn?' Only then they feel like they know him. If you say to the grown-ups: 'I've seen a lovely house made of pink brick, with geraniums in the windows and doves on the roof'',  they are unable to picture such a house. You must say: 'I saw a house that cost a hundred thousand francs.' Then they cry out: 'Oh, how pretty!'

You know when one is that sad, one can get to love the sunset.

My flower perfumed my whole planet, but I was unable to appreciate her.

Love, n.
