Book Review: Wind, Sand, and Stars

by Antoine de Saint Exupéry

This was a sort of autobiography of a French airmail pilot from way back in the day.  And when I say "sort of" I mean that yeah, he tells a few pilot stories, but he's more of a philosopher than anything else.  This wasn't really my regular sort of reading fare, but I couldn't help but be impressed.  Although, the first chapter bit almost turned me off.  Booooooooring.  Despite my English major background, I rarely enjoy reading stuff written by poemers and the like.

In conclusion:  This was a library book, and Izzy ripped a corner off of one of the pages.  If we end up having to buy it, I won't be too disappointed.
