Book Review - "Jonathan Livingston Seagull"

Jonathan Livingston Seagull Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
Its a story of an "outcast" seagull whose passion of flight takes him to higher planes of life where he learns whatever he could learn of flying and then he returns to earth to teach other gulls and spread his knowledge.

Most seagulls don't bother to learn more than the simple tacts of flight. For them flying means - how to get from shore to food and back again. However not the same for a gull named Jonathan Livingston Seagull. For him, it was not eating that mattered, but flight. This book throws light on the significance of seeking a higher purpose in life, even if your flock considers your ambition useless. To pursue his ambitions, he is even exiled from his flock. By not compromising his ambitions, Jonathan reaches the higher plane of life. And he learns the meaning of love and kindness. And finally he returns and spread it around.

This book is a good spritual & inspiring one which will leave you spell bound with its philosophy.

Book Review - " To Kill a Mocking Bird"

To Kill a Mockingbird To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

My review

Put in a frame through the eyes of little 6 year old Jean Louise Finch aka Scout, the story demonstrates the racial prejudice in Maycomb county and how it depresses Scout and Jem . Their father Atticus, a lawyer who is supporting the trial of a black man - fighting the truth. The novel shows how the life of the small family is effected by the trial of Tom Robinson and how it personally effects the thinking of Scout. Harper Lee has made it so much intresting with the witty humour that one would be totally engrossed in it. The character potray is wonderfully crafted.

The best part for me in the novel was the innocent imaginations and thinking of the small children described in an amazing way. The way the children actually percieve and react to things and situations and how they learn as they grow. Harper Lee must have spend alot of time on learning about the physcology of children.

Good book to read.
