Outline: This book is about Jonathan Livingston, a seagull who wants to accomplish his dream. After he manage to do so, that is to accomplish something no other seagull has ever done, he also helps other seagulls to follow their dreams and to learn how to fly like he does.


Overall feel: I do not want to talk about characters specifically although each and everyone of them is special, or talk about the plot, I would like to talk to you about the main idea presented in this book. My mum, was the one who first introduced me to this book and I can say that I know why. This book is about following your true passions and breaking out of the norm. In no way does this book claim that being normal is a bad, as many people perceive it, what the book is trying to show is that no matter how hard it may at time be you can follow you dreams, and that your mind is a powerful tool, more powerful at your body at times. Thus, you shouldn’t limit yourself, because that is, at the end of the day, the only thing that can hold you back. The good thing about this book is that it is a very easy read, it only takes an hour or so to read, and the pictures in the book are truly magnificent, making it very pleasant to have this book. So, if you aren’t feeling well or if you are feeling well and you just need a boos, I would recommend this book for sure, I know it’s a book I always pick up when I am not at my best.
