Jonathan Livingston Seagull

Rating: 4/5

Title: Jonathan Livingston Seagull - A Story
Author: Richard Bach
Genre: Fiction, Literary
Pages: 96
Publisher: Harper Collins
ISBN-13: 9788172235789

The book is about Jonathan Livingston Seagull, a unique seagull, which aspires to learn more about flying than just to catch food. It is an inspirational story and the author uses flight as a metaphor to explain how the very purpose of life is lost in the everyday fight for food and survival. The story is about a seemingly unattainable ambition and how it is achieved, in spite of oppositions, just by keeping faith in oneself.

It is a short and nice read (might fire up your goals and dreams). Some lines in the book made me pause and reflect upon them. One of them being “Look with your understanding, find out what you already know, and you’ll see the way to fly” and another one - “Overcome space, and all we have left is Here. Overcome time, and all we have left is Now.”

My take - everyone could benefit in some way from this book. Especially recommended for young readers.
