Through the book celebrates the innocence of children, it laments the failure of humanity at large to behave like a child. This great masterpiece has transcended its times, as there are many little princes that the war might have crucified. It's a great irony that even the prince's flight back to his planet drives the truth back home that earth is no more a place worth living. An intelligent reader capable of drawing this message from the novel cannot but finish reading the complete book before closing it down. This is where lies the beauty of this partially autobiographical presented almost in the form of a fairy tale.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery was born in France in 1900 and had a great passion for flying. Aviation often serves as a theme in his works for more relevant discussions such as search for wisdom and the meaning of life. He was forced to give up aviation and flee to New York after Germany had invated France during world war II. It distrubed him greatly.From AudioFile:
At first, Richard Gere's pause-laden, melancholic narration seems affected, but as this fable of childhood wonder and adult folly unfolds, the sad, quiet tone feels entirely appropriate. As the Little Prince, guilelessly portrayed by The Sixth Sense's Haley Joel Osment, leaves his tiny planet to journey across the universe, he encounters characters who embody greed and futility, and finally a fox who, in a brief but standout performance by Adam Frost, asks to be tamed. Gentle, contemplative music underscores the story, and by the end, the Little Prince has learned that the weightiest matters in life--bonds of friendship and responsibility--are the most intangible. Saint-Exupéry's pilot has been changed irrevocably by his encounter with the Little Prince; listeners will doubtless feel the same way.
