The Little Prince

I just finished reading this book last night and it's really entertaining. Though it's a children's book, I'm pretty sure adults can pick up a thing or two from it.

The only regret I have was not being able to read it when I was younger.

Okay lang yan, better appreciation comes with age. I read this too when I was in the sixth grade but did not fully understand the philosophies within it. I decided to reread it after college and man, it was a great book pala. Nun ko lang naintindihan yung unconditional love theme surrounding the novel. For me, it's one of the greatest love stories ever told.

I have to say, I like it when children's stories end up being more philosophically rich than the "adult" counterparts.

The Little Prince over any Stephanie Meyer novel any day. :D

Is this where I run and hide for my life? :P

I agree with you Jem! I will choose to read The Little Prince over Twilight too. Ok naman ang Twilight but ephemeral lang siya while The Little Prince creates a lasting impression on our consciousness. :)

I've issues with Twilight. hahaha I did buy the first three books because they were on the "bestsellers" table. I read the first one and it was the first book that read me to sleep. lol This could go on forever so let's just say that I'm not a fan at all. ;)

I never read twilight but I've seen the first movie. It's one of those what-the-ef-that-was-it movies. So the book is no better than the movie?

The books are far better than the movies but I still don't consider them as super awesome reads. I had been a Twilight fan, but it did not last, especially when the first movie came out. It's like Fifty Shades, you read them because everyone's raving about it. But after a while the fan girl inside you dies out.

I don't recommend either of the two. haha Although, I did laugh my way through the first movie while my friends were aww-ing and making moon eyes at the screen. ;) Twihards don't like me at all. :P

I was actually waiting for an awww-worthy moment in the movie but nothing came. Haha! Don't worry, not a Twihard here. :D

Oh my. :lol: Fifty Shades. :D It's a trilogy, yes? I've seen the box set at bookstores but never really bothered with it.

I read that 50 shades started out as Twilight Fan Fiction. I was both laughing by butt off and shaking my head in utter disbelief when I found out.

Thing is, if people want "real" vampire fiction, I say read Bram Stoker's Dracula and/or Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles to start.

As for the whole erotica genre, am no expert. I've only ever ventured into that realm because I wanted to read everything Anne Rice. I think her Sleeping Beauty Series, Exit to Eden and Belinda are all mind-numbingly educational? :? :lol: I really ought to at least read up on the jacket summaries before picking up a few of the books I bought when I was in my senior HS years.
