« Le petit prince » est un livre qui devrait être connu par tout le monde. C¿est une triste, belle histoire qui a changé ma vie la première fois que je l¿ai lue. Dans « Le petit prince », il s¿agit d¿un homme qui trouve par hasard, au milieu du désert, « un petit bonhomme », venant d¿une autre planète, qui est venu à la Terre pour apprendre quelque chose à propos de l¿amitié. Il y a une fleur sur sa toute petite planète dont il est amoureux ; et dans son voyage il croise des autres petites planètes, où se trouvent de « grandes personnes » eccentrique : il y a un homme qui ne fait rien que compter les étoiles, parce qu¿il pense qu¿il les « possède » ; il y a un homme qui boit « parce que j¿ai honte de boir ». Je n¿ai jamais lu de traduction de ce chef-d¿¿uvre, mais je crois que la beauté de la langue serait peut-être perdue dedans. Si vous pouvez lire même juste un peu en français, même si vous devez aller au dictionnaire chaque minute, il est indispensable que vous lisiez ce beau livre. Même (est peut-être spécialement) les adultes ont quelque chose à apprendre de la sagesse enfantine de Saint Ex.

Le Petit Prince is a thoughtful story for both children and adults. Good way to keep your French fresh and read a wise classic at the same time.

Ce livre est le chef-d'oeuvre de Saint-Exupéry et un de mes livres preferés. Apologies for my horrid French- I am but a third year student. We read this book as a class in French during the past weeks and it was incredibly moving and eye-opening. For one thing, it helped ease the stress of upcoming exams not only because we were reading the book and not doing intense grammar review, but also because of the potent message of stopping to smelling the roses and not letting life pass you by. It was, quite literally, life-changing. (I'm the businessman type myself.) Whether you speak French or not, read this book. It's the most amazing thing. The last chapters had some of my classmates in tears. The illustrations as well are incredible. I can't say enough good things about this masterpiece that Saint-Exupéry was kind enough to give us before he disappeared. Surely this is the most enduring classic the world over, for adults and for children alike.

I read this book in high school and absolutely loved it. Now, 6 years later, I'm reading it to my husband. This story never gets old. It could possibly be the best book I've ever read.

This book is fabulous! It really gives a new and different look at the world and the human society in general. Even if you don't understand the hidden symbolism, it is a fantastic story.

Any adult may soon notice that the book only looks like an illustrated one for children. But there is SO MUCH more in it. I have kept reading the book each year at least once since childhood. And this is 30 years back now. It teaches us this lesson that nothing is more important than...

This was a great book. I read it in English in my French class and then I went out and bought it in french. I loved the message the book brought out. Also, we watched the movie in French class and I love the messages the author wrote in the book.

This book is very good if you can understand the underlying messages that the characters are giving and what they represent in the history of this world! Reading this for the first time in my French class really made me think about the things that were going on during that time period and the other lives associated with the war. History classes tell you the people that were involved and were affected, but it doesn't give the same affect as one that experienced it first hand.
