Jonathan Livingston Seagull is frustrated with the meaningless conventionality of a seagull’s life. He is bored by the daily bickering for food and the limitations that define a seagull’s life. Driven with a passion for flying, he pushes himself in audacious mid-air feats and experiments to learn all that he can about flying. His passion to push boundaries lands him in a conflict with his flock, who eventually banish him.
Living as an outcast, Jonathan’s determination does not fade and he continues his efforts to fly higher. In his quest, he meets two radiant seagulls who take him to a ‘higher plane of existence’ through perfection of knowledge. Here, he meets other gulls that love flying, and teach him the idea of unlimited freedom. Jonathan learns that forgiving is essential and reaches back to Earth to his flock to teach them his newfound ideals.
This book is a distinguished motivational fable about seeking a higher purpose in life, even if the circumstances seem inconvenient. By not deserting his quest, Jonathan learns about the importance of love, respect, freedom and forgiveness. This edition has illustrations by Russell Munson and is the completed edition of the novella as it has the fourth part of the book. The fourth part was written contemporaneously by Richard Bach in 2013 and was first published as a complete edition in 2014.
I m happy with the purchase. I got it in the "good" category for 99 . Condition of the book is absolutely awesome.
But this book which i got was printed in 2012 .and so the cover is little bit different. I dont have any problem even with this . So all in all amazing experience.
