Simple story —. Powerful message.

What an incredible story. So simple and yet so meaningful. We are our limitations, nothing more...nothing less.

Love the new version!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Jonathan Livingston Seagull: The New Complete Edition to be better than the print version?

Yes...the music and narration is amazing. Jonathan is reborn.

What other book might you compare Jonathan Livingston Seagull: The New Complete Edition to and why?

There is no comparison. Loved it in the 70's and love it more now ...even the new chapter!!!

Which character – as performed by Marcus Lovett – was your favorite?

Jonathan is my favorite character.... A great overall read by Mr Lovett. I felt like he was in the room reading it to me.... The music by Mr Miller just added so much emotion to the story. Mr Bach's words were ....and still are just profound!!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The story always made me feel, think and cry. This audio version just added so much depth to the story. Tissues anyone???

Any additional comments?

Thank you Richard Bach for your words. Jonathan touched and captured my heart in the 70's and still does! I love the new chapter it gave me more to think about. The struggle for Jonathan is still all of our struggles and is timeless. Who hasn't felt the flock's pressures? We needed this book in the 70's and I think we need it now. I hope Jonathan finds his way to a new generation....who could use Jonathan's life lessons.

The only true law is that which leads to freedom


Beautiful, positive, inspirational and new age but not deluded in magical thinking just an incentive to achieve your best through knowledge, a perfect read when you need a pull me up.

In the seventies, the influence of Indian mysticism and Buddhism were mixed up into all popular forms and motivated much change in the west, and Jonathan Livingston Seagull is one of the few examples of it in literature that sill moves some into that inspirational moment where Samsara and nirvana are achievable through the belief in oneself and the power of learning, to expect it to be a perfect deep book would be unfair, just enjoy it for making you feel hope.

This version of the book has one extra part that speaks of the negativity of dogma and the creation of idolatry as stifling of the spirit of freedom, and how that brings a form of nihilism on the young. I suspect Richard Bach had to amend his positivity in the individual and point out the natural pressures created by society and present them as a warning, I guess we all grow up.

Enlightening

I read some of this book when I was ten and didn't really understand it's meaning. To hear it in full from beginning to end as an audiobook 40 years later was amazing. An engrossing narration and a great story to help you reset your true north.
