Moments to keep readers' attention, SPOILERS! **** ----------- 'Do you understand that the Little Prince died?' My mother asked with as much care and delicacy as only adults who know that the loss of innocence can be overwhelming, but that it is brutally necessary, they can do it. "No, he did not, he went back to his home planet and that stupid rose, he says it right here." I responded with the comforting stubbornness of an eight-year-old boy. Later that night, I went back to reading the book and the sad truth clicked, and so did the belated thought that, despite all the gentle reprimand of the adults. in him, this strange and beautiful book was written by one of them and definitely for them, and not for me, and by attracting me with the beautiful images he pushed me a little further into the inevitable path to adulthood. From now on, I decided to read the author's biography as a distraction from thoughts that were trying to be a little larger than my heart cared. I was the strange child of a mother literature teacher, after all - just to know that right after writing this book, Antoine de Saint Exupery died when flying his plane in a war to free his country, killed by adults who played a war game, too dangerous and cruel. And that finally made me cry. And then I went back to the simple safety of childhood. Then I grew up, inevitably, like most of us. I learned to do my fair share of "matters of importance". I learned the painful understanding of why certain vain but naive roses can have such a sad power over our hearts. I learned the consolation and longing for nostalgia, the fear of the overwhelming burden of loneliness, the understanding of the fragile beauty of the world that can be easily removed at any moment. I became an adult, and I have to learn to reconcile my inner child with my outer age. "In the course of this life I have had many encounters with many people who have been concerned about issues of importance, I have lived a lot among adults, I have seen them intimately, closely, and that has not greatly improved my opinion of them." Now, reading this intensely lyrical and fascinating book written by a sick middle-aged adult away from the country I loved in the middle of the war-ravaged years, I face emotions. that relentless pain, hidden in the deceptive simplicity of a (supposedly) children's story such as an elephant was hidden inside a boa constrictor, or was it simply a hat all the time? - In the first paragraphs of this book. He sighed and trait, and tried to resist the temptation to pick up the golden-haired boy who never stopped until he got answers to his questions and took him to a safe place. But I can not. Because if I do, there will never be 500 billion bells in the stars, and we will never ask ourselves if the rose is still alive, and it has to be that way, because we are responsible for those we have tamed. "But I did not calm down, I remembered the fox, you run the risk of crying a little, if you let it tame." This is not a book for children. It is for adults who remember being children and feel nostalgia for the simple consolation of childhood innocence, but they know that they will never be able to return to that. Because they have met their Roses and Foxes, and drank from a well with a rusted mango in the desert, and learned that some thorns may not be against the claws of a tiger. Unlike the Little Prince, they can not go back, but they can look at the starry sky and laugh, and imagine that they hear a clear laugh in response. "In certain important details I will also make mistakes, but that is something that will not be my fault, my friend never explained anything to me, he thought maybe I was like himself, but unfortunately I do not, I know how to see I've had to grow old. "" What makes the desert beautiful, "said the little prince," is that somewhere a well hides. ..Plus
