    A book worth sharing

    Kahlil Gibran had so rightly said " I did not write the book, it wrote me"
    Open the doors of your heart and read ' The Prophet' !
    Though this is not the book one would like to read in one go. Take time and open it when you want it to speak to you..

    Good read

    The book is quite concise and can be read in a an hour or two. it contains a message for the mind on various topics of human concern such as love, pleasure, friendship etc. The speaker acts as a Prophet and expresses himself very frankly and his thoughts (or teachings) are very balanced and a few thoughts are really appreciable and should be imbibed in our life to make it a better one.

    Awesome

    Fabulous! It opens your mind to a whole new dimension of life. My review is based on this book that i received (the book with yellow flower on its cover).
    The words and paragraphs are very well spaced. You can read each and every word clearly. It has 132 pages. The wordings are composed as prose as well as like a poem. I couldn't put it down once i started reading. I got a bookmark too☺️ Would recommend for all book lovers!

    A book for lifetime

    This is a gem of a book. This will make you think and see your life in a new way. Its a book about life and how you should live it.Its a book that you must read and pass on to your loved ones.

    I think the best part is, how easy it is to understand. The language is simple, the message clear. I read parts of this book whenever I feel a bit down.

    This is a must read for everyone.
