Jonathan Livingstone Seagull

Jonathan Livingstone Seagull
-Review by ilaxi



A Gem Pick, this book is a prized treasure. Growing up Gracefully is the theme of the Book with very good illustrated pic of Sea Gulls on the cover page. Captivating attention with this classic read, Richard Bach's fable Seagull named Jonathan Livingstone is an example that teaches about 'Flight' and capture the moments of love and kindness. Jonathan had a deep desire to soar high in the skies and hardly cared for eating like other seagulls. The message was to aim higher for a purpose in life even if its against the wishes of own people. Jonathan is courageous and in pursuit of excelling, he almost has to leave his flock and experience learning with wise seagull who taught him perfect speed. It's the art of perfection one develops keeping the spirits alive as one rise up aiming higher in life. A good read and great message for taking Flights to achievement.

Firstly, I had read this book's condensed version in Readers' Digest's silver jubilee edition booklet "50 golden years of Readers' Digest", and after some time had chance to read the complete book.This is a marvelous book. The purity, love for all, and perfection and tuning with the Great Creator narrated is unparalleled. I remember two such more books: first " Heaven sees you Alison", a US novel and "Aranyak" by Bibhooti Bhooshan Bandhyopadhyaya.
