I could not finish this book after getting 3/4 through. After reading the Airman's Odyssey trilogy I fell in love with St-Ex. This story though really is nothing like St-Ex and I don't recommend it. It just has none of the existentialism, social commentary, epic imagery, or thought-provoking insight that I expect from St-Ex. On top of it the story just wanders and never really starts, or ever gets anywhere...seriously I really can't tell you what this story is about.

I wrote a review on Airman's Odyssey that you can find for comparison.

My husband loves any of the books by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. This particular book is out of print and after searching several major book stores, Amazon had a new one at a reasonable price of $19.95. My husband loves that I found it. Have seen collectors editions as high as $800.00!

I, like many, was first introduced to St. Exupery by "The Little Prince"; however, I went on to explore his other books (Wind, Sand and Stars) and fell in love with his poetic style of writing, his passion for flight, and his vivid descriptions of the Sahara. His life ended all too soon, insisting on flying in the War, even when he was turned down several times for his age. He died flying at the age of 44. His writing lives on, and if you read just the first page, you will know that this is one of the most talented and excellent writers you will ever read.

Until I started reading these other less-known writings of Exupery, I had no idea who this wonderful, courageous aviator was. He fought valiantly to keep France from becoming Socialist at the hands of Charles De Gaulle, and it probably cost him his life. This is another great example of his amazing gift with the written word. I wish there was more. Each and everyone who reads his work can't but come away awed at his brilliant understanding of the blessings of freedom and the nature of agency.
