Wonderful it may have been four stars were it not for the accompanying illustrations, which in my edition are by Ron Wegan The combination of the words with the illustrations, which are as valuable in adding punctuation, depth and breathing space as they are in their beauty, make this book something special for me It s a small book, and I found my copy for 49p in a charity shop a hidden gem that I stumbled across just when I really needed to.
Ar tikrai mylios gali atskirti mus nuo draug Jei norime b ti su tais,kuriuos mylime,argi jau nesame su jais
As books penned by Richard Bach go, it is concise and it is precisely for this reason that I adore this book Of course, it is often better to say something in 25 words and say it beautifully than use five and only be functional I am much an advocate of that Still, Bach manages to get his point across in a rather poetic naive way, simply and still beautifully.Books like Jonathan Livingstone Seagull and Illusions have their place in narrative While Seagull has the turns of phrase that echo the fli [...]

I read this several years ago I love to give this as a gift to someone who moves away The illustrations in this book are awesome.
Si fa fatica persino a capire cosa cavolo sia Inclino a supporre che si tratti di una presa per il culo Perdonatemi il termine triviale.
This is a great kids book It s simple and inspiring, making it s point in such a way that you really can t argue that there s no such place as far away.
Ning n lugar est lejos Si desea estar con alguien a quien usted ama, no est ya a su lado Pueden los kil metros separar a los verdaderos amigos Nada es imposible para el que verdaderamente desea algo, y est dispuesto a prescindir de eso que llamamos realidad objetiva Ning n lugar est lejos para los seres con imaginaci n, capaces de comprometerse con la gente, de amar, de vivir cada d a como si fuera el primero y el ltimo Ninguna persona est lejos si existe el deseo y la voluntad de estar a su lad [...]
To be honest I m not entirely sure I understood what I just read However, besides the illustrations being lovely, Bach writes some lovely philosophical and sentimental prose I cannot take that away from him The perspective however is lost on me, I will re read it when I m awake with strong coffee But I kept trying to see who he was supposed to be, the narrator, is it something unseen, is it Bach, is it the sun or the moon, something simply we carry within I m not exactly sure It is still very l [...]
Short and sweet Nice book but did not say anything new Simply reiterated what has already been said in his other books However, the book did have a nice feel to it felt like it was for children, although i don t think kids will understand the underlying philosophy The book itself would be a 2 star rating from me, as it was nothing new or special but the artwork in the book by Lee Shapiro deserves the remaining two stars and therefore a 4 star rating, merely because of the soothing yet wonderful [...]
Pu forse una distanza materiale separarci davvero dagli amici Se desideri essere accanto a qualcuno che ami, non ci sei forse gi Un anno pi lontana dall infanzia Non mi sembra che questo sia crescere l essere ignota non impedisce alla verit d essere vera.Queste frasi estrapolate dal testo aiutano a capire quanto sia bello da leggere ci si mette forse 1 ora x meditare a lungo su se stessi.
Ron Wegen s illustrations are exquisite.I am not exactly certain how I feel about feel good books such as this I do know at the end of this book and others like it, I feel almost icky As in, Oh, take your schlocky crap and shove it I cannot help feeling that I should like or enjoy books such as this because they are happy and joyful and blech I think I need to look into this further, but hopefully by not reading another book like this.
This book is really short, and has always meant a lot to me I think it s a good book for anyone going off to college, or leaving you It really does remind you that there is no place far away when you re friends.
Wow, un peque o libro que siempre debes tener a la mano Nos ense a que la distancia no separa a los verdaderos amigos.
Otro libro de este autor del cual casi no entend nada, simplemente lo le porque a mi padre le gustaba y tenia curiosidad de que trataba.
un libro sumamente tierno, sencill simo pero tan profundo en su esencia, tanto como la amistad, aquella que trasciende todo espacio f sico.
Me encant , especialmente por que en ese momento me encontraba tan lejos de a quienes amo, y a n es as Los libros de Bach me encantan
The illustrations are marvels, dreamlike and colorful The story is a longlasting fantasy It s absolutely fabulous.
Cuando en tu vida las distancias con gente querida son algo inevitable, este libro te saca una sonrisa y una lagrima a la vez.
Beautifully written, loved each wordsA very dear friend recommended this piece of work to me to readI loved reading it and would recommend to everyone who want to understand and appreciate what friendship is
Pretentious garbage, and this is an understatement Bach follows the same shrewd technique as in his other books with crappy paintings adjacent to text ,which is very minimal and could be fit into two pages AND IT IS FUCKING OVERPRICED Glad I read it in the bookstore itself.
