The Beginning and The End Series: The Little Prince Antoine De Saint-Exupery

I'm a voracious reader and one of things that I try to do is to read at least one book every week whether it's a new story or something that I've already read before.

I like reading either the first few lines of the book or even the last few lines. It helps me figure out if the book would be interesting enough.

In this series, I'll be bringing to you some of the books that I've enjoyed reading.

Hopefully, these would help some of you find the reading bug.

I've learned a lot from reading and I'd like to share this passion to everyone.

Please beware about possible spoilers if you read The End part.

Book Title: The Little Prince
Author: Prince Antoine De Saint-Exupery (translated by Katherine Woods)
Publishing Date: 1943



The Beginning: Once when I was six years old I saw a magnificent picture in a book, called True Stories from Nature, about the primeval forest. It was a picture of a boa constrictor in the act of swallowing an animal.


The End: Then if a little man appears who laughs, who has golden hair and who refuses to answer questions, you will know who he is. If this should happen, please comfort me. Send me word that he has come back.
