Jonathan Livingston Seagull By Richard Bach


This story might sound like the story of your life. In case you feel like an outcast at work or home this book is for you.

Ever wondered if reading about a seagull will tell you about life? Well, this book does exactly that. The Story starts with a seagull called Jonathan Livingston Seagull. Being an outcast he decides to his challenge his flock and become one of them.

Jonathan would fly a few meters and then fall in the water. Everyone else would consider him an outcast. The flock turned their back on Jonathan. He lived alone and learned to fly. This story is his journey to success.

This book will teach us to live life to the fullest. Most of the times we don't realize our own inner strength. Each human being has the potential to go beyond their limitations.

It seems the message is bold. It reminds me of star trek. Go boldly where no man has ever been. You will face obstacles but rise above them. In case you fail once don't be dishearted. Try and try again and again.

Later on, in the book Jonathan teaches other young seagulls to fly. One such person was Martin William seagull. Another is Charles Roland Gull. This fellow went as high as twenty-four thousand feet. And he was determined to go still higher.



The above message would sum it up. I liked the book for its message.
