Zay This book is Wind, Sand and Stars by Antoine de Saint-Expuery. The theme in this book is about life and how much one will do to keep it. In this book the main character crashed in the Andes during the winter and struggled for his life. “Nothing can match the treasure of common memories, of trials endured together, of quarrels and reconciliations and generous emotions. It is idle, having planted an acorn in the morning, to expect that afternoon to sit in the shade of the oak.” This quote can be interpreted different ways. One being if you plant an acorn you would have to wait a long time in order to see the tree full grown and enjoy that feeling. The same goes with a memory, you would have to wait a long time in order to enjoy it. I liked this book and would definitely recommend this book to others.


C. G. Telcontar I've read it three or four times. It is one of THOSE books that generates a feeling within you that you never shake off.
