This is a fairytale whose distribution volume is only second to The Bible. It’s been translated to versions of many other languages. And I gather there must be something special, something really great about it. It’s this conviction that drove me to read it at the first beginning. Well, with due respect to the author, I failed to see how this fairytale be worthy of our attention, despite the fact that many readers claimed this book to be designed for adults.
Anyway, as a well-acknowledged book, it must possess unique feature to maintain it’s position. And it’s reputation and popularity will by no means be destroyed by what an unknown man says. I will talk about the main contents of the book, and the inspiration it renders as usual.
This book mainly tells us the experience of a prince from a tiny planet, who traveled to many other planets and finally came to the earth and met the pilot in a desert. The prince and the pilot became good friends, and the pilot gradually got to know the feeling and experience of his friend. Before he came to the earth, little prince had been to other 6 little planets where he made acquaintance with some strange people. The first man he met was a king on a little planet, yet he claimed to be the king of the space and ridiculously justified his unshakable governance over all. The second person was a man of vanity, who enjoyed compliments of any form without considering whether it’s sincere or not. The third person was an alcoholic who tried to forget the fact that he’s addicted to acohol by drinking like a fish. The fourth person was an abosolute money-oriented businessman, who cared nothing but his fortune. Next came the lamp-lighter who performed his duty blindly. The last one was a geographer who knew too much about geography to solve a real problem related to it. These six people each represented one kind of person like us. The author satirized people’s conceit, emptiness, fakeness, innocence and blindness through the tone of a child.
I see eye to eye with the author in that the cause of people’s loneliness can be concluded to the negligence of the bonds that connects them. People are supposed to care about each other, cherish what’s really important for them, and be grateful for the happiness that they’ve gained. We all believe knowledge and experience enable us to see clearly and make right judgements all the time. But we may sometimes lose the right to speak straighforwardly, think creatively or love courageously resulting from what we’ve experienced. That why in our middle school textbooks, it’s the little kid that breaks the illusion of the emperor by saying ”but mum, he ain’t were anything”.
When I was a child, I was definitely a good boy who went home on time after school and did his homework and never tried anything without mom’s permission. And now I am a grown-up, and still I am a good man, at least, that’s what I heard. Sometimes when I was lonely and I began to think about my childhood, then all the happiness and care-free
life came back to me as it were yesterday. Kids that once accompanied me during my childhood now become fathers and mothers of their kids and I myself am a child no more. Thinking about all these things have made me moody. There’re changes happening in our lives whether we are happy about it or not.
People told me life is a journey which will never stop once it’s started. What’s left behind are happiness and sorrow, pride and shame, success and regret. There’s good old time to reminisce and there’s sad hours that reminds us of the pain. Your feeling makes them real, and you know you lived.
I want to conclude by saying some positive words that each yestersday used to be today, and each today is the future of yesterday, so making the most of today is the best way to cherish your lives. Our mortal beings are doomed to die. It’s not sad, instead, death it’s just a process of our lives. After all, we’ve lived our lives and it’s what we do and how we think that determine who we are.
(when you look at the above passages, don’t regard it as a composition or an article, because if you do, you will be puzzled at the structure. It’s just a few words that come to my mind at the moment and I type them.)
Have a nice day!
Reading Report ——The Little Prince I’m reading a book called The Little Prince written by Exupery,S. He was born in Lyon in 1900. He was a pilot during his early life. Unfortunately，he was died at the age of 44 in 1944 when he was carrying out the eighth flying mission. And The Little Prince was his most famous novel.
This novel tells the story of the little prince, who came from the asteroid known as B-612.The narrator met the little prince when he crashed in the desert. Little by little, he learned more about the prince from words dropped by chance. The planet was so small that nobody could go very far. As is seen to all, he owned a flower and three volcanoes. Apparently, he was very earnest, honest and stubborn. Every time he put forward a question, you can’t ignore it and must answer it instantly to satisfy his curiosity. Don’t want to walk through these questions seemed boring and meaningless. Because they were more important than how much your salary is. Meanwhile, we cannot overlook another character——the flower loved by the little prince. It seems ridiculous that he fell in love with a flower, but their true love is moving in fact. At first, he was attracted by her charming appearance. However, she begun very quickly to
torment him with her vanity. Gradually, he had soon come to doubt her. Finally, they broke up, which had taken him to the earth. But he still could not forget his lover all the time.
The most memorable matter is that people could not understand the narrator’s first drawing until he drew out every detail. It was a picture of a boa constrictor in the act of swallowing an animal. To his disappointment, they thought it was a hat. And after several times of modification, these grown-ups made out his idea in the end. But the little prince could understand this picture at the beginning. In a conclusion, I think it is because grown-ups are short of imagination and their thoughts are complicated. Their hearts are not pure any more. This impressed me a lot is when you praise a beautiful house, these grown-ups cannot imagine how wonderful it is unless you tell them the house costs $20,000. There’s no denying that it is a very sad truth, however, also a common phenomenon. The reason is so clear that everybody knows it. What can it be except for their money worship? Although they might know it is bad, they never want to change the actuality because the temptation seems impossible to resist. As a result, they become complicated and only care about money. They used to be pure, but the realistic world has changed them greatly. Of course, we cannot
shift the responsibility onto them, because that’s it all the time. We must make up our mind to change the current situation thoroughly. Do not just pay attention to money is very important, and also hard to carry out.
I think this book is written for adults instead of children. On account of the deep meanings between the lines, innocent children maybe cannot undersand it very well. So the author asked the indulgence of the children who may read this book for dedicating it to a grown-up. In my opinion, this book is good for those grown-ups who have lost their childishness. I hope they can find themselves by reading this novel.
In a word, this book is worth reading.＋ 更多类似范文
