Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach

This is a friend's copy. I should own one.
A classic for a reason. A must read.

My friend, Harimohan suggested and shared this book. It’s a novella and loved reading the simple yet intense story.

The way the author used Seagull as the metaphor to his thoughts is aspiring and imaginative.

The way author narrated the story is very intense in its thoughts. This proves that one doesn't need to write zillions of words to convey a clear crisp message. The book is a brilliance at its brevity.

Though very little is spoken about kindness and love yet emphasizing about it, I totally agree with the author’s words as he says, "…..That’s what I mean by love. It’s fun when you get the knack of it."

It’s fun when you get the knack of it!

There are few lines which I quote here for the sake of rejoicing in a reread.

“You will begin to touch heaven, Jonathan, in the moment that you touch perfect speed. And that isn’t flying a thousand miles an hour, or a million or flying at the speed of light. Because any number is a limit and perfection doesn’t have limits. Perfect speed, my son, is being there.”
