Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

"Most gulls don't bother to learn more than the simplest facts of flight--how to get from shore to food and back again," writes author Richard Bach in this allegory about a unique bird named Jonathan Livingston Seagull. "For most gulls it is not flying that matters, but eating. For this gull, though, it was not eating that mattered, but flight." Flight is indeed the metaphor that makes the story soar. Ultimately this is a fable about the importance of seeking a higher purpose in life, even if your flock, tribe, or neighborhood finds your ambition threatening. (At one point our beloved gull is even banished from his flock.) By not compromising his higher vision, Jonathan gets the ultimate payoff: transcendence. Ultimately, he learns the meaning of love and kindness. The dreamy seagull photographs by Russell Munson provide just the right illustrations--although the overall packaging does seem a bit dated (keep in mind that it was first published in 1970). Nonetheless, this is a spirituality classic, and an especially engaging parable for adolescents. --Gail Hudson

''Flight is indeed the metaphor that makes the story soar.

By not compromising his higher vision, Jonathan gets the ultimate payoff: transcendence. Ultimately, he learns the meaning of love and kindness…This is a spirituality classic and an especially engaging parable for adolescents.'' --Amazon.com, editorial review

''This book is a new and valuable citizen in that very wondrous world ruled by St.-Exupéry's Little Prince. I suspect all of us who visit the worlds of Jonathan Seagull will never want to return.'' --Ernest K. Gann, New York Times bestselling author

''Richard Bach with this book does two things. He gives me flight. He makes me young. For both I am deeply grateful.'' --Ray Bradbury, New York Times bestselling author

''It is easy now, [more than] thirty-five years on, to overlook the originality of the book's concept, and though some find it rather naive, in fact it expresses timeless ideas about human potential.'' --Tom Butler-Bowdon, author of 50 Spiritual Classics
