Jonathan Livingston Seagull


Picked this one off the shelf because of its length. Now that I've got that confession out of the way, I can honestly say that I didn't hate it like I thought it would. It had a very deep spiritual message for a book about a seagull. The day I read it I wasn't necessarily in the mood for contemplative pondering, but as I've thought about it here and there since, I've thought better of it.

I loved this book as a teen and in my early 20s and read it several times. I don't remember it much now except that it was about perfection. I should go back and see what perspectives can be gleaned with 10 more years under my belt. I really enjoyed his Bridge Across Forever, a love story about he and his wife I believe. Of course, that was a high school read too, so I could be remembering it wrong.

I love this book! Have since I read it the first time in high school and each of the numerous times I've read it since. Every once in a while I just like to sit down and re-read it. I so enjoy it.
