The book tells the story of Jonathan Livingston Seagull, a seagull who is bored with the daily squabbles over food. Seized by a passion for flight, he pushes himself, learning everything he can about flying, until finally his unwillingness to conform results in his expulsion from his flock. An outcast, he continues to learn, becoming increasingly pleased with his abilities as he leads a peaceful and happy life.
This novella was on my regular re-reading list for years. I may have read it over twenty times, it’s an easy read.
Pretty much anything Bach wrote was good. Well, I could never get into the Messiah’s Handbook. I guess I’m not a messiah.
Don’t watch the movie, though. EVER.
