Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I recently read this book and i am impressed. Kahlil Gibran's words are utterly realistic and haunting. It made me see the logic of love, sharing, marriage, etc. Reading it once is never enough because it is just too good. This book should be in everyone's collection and i don't think i'm the only one who'll gladly recommend this book.
