JLS

I tried reading a few more pages of the “Soul Mountain”, but finally I spent my last evening with the idyllic charm of the thinnest book, which I had ever read – Jonathan Livingston Seagull. A very sweet book (or short-story)…must have inspired many…

At times I wonder about the practicality of books like JLS, but what I like about these books is that they take you to a different realm at least for the time you spend reading the book. Themes like perfection, forgiveness, love, unlimited freedom, dreams, and higher plane of existence etc. etc. are always fascinating….at least to read.

well precisely ,yes. They are too good to believe things.But the irony is: palmtop knowledge, irrelevant in real world. Take Alchemist, for instance. How many ppl actually realize their destinies? Few, very few. Its like that: make-believe world is cosy, if only the coziness could be forever....-k.m

but these Alchemist kind books help to get out of the real world for sometime....into a very pleasant image ( or may be mirage) of the real world
