Book Review — The Prophet

Standard

The ProphetThe Prophet by Kahlil Gibran

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

For a book of platitudes and proverbs, it wasn’t bad. I’d prefer to read Chesterton, Poor Richard, or even the Book of Proverbs, which all deliver their platitudes with more humor, but it wasn’t bad.

I also didn’t understand the use of the scifi/fantasy frame story. I don’t think it needed it, and it set me up for actually expecting some plot when I started reading it.
