Jonathan is a Seagull living on the planet earth, but he is very confused. A seagulls existence consists of eating and sleeping, that’s it. Jonathan is a free thinker who spends his time learning new flying moves and pushing his ability as far as he can.
All the seagulls in his flock make him an outcast. Everyone turns their back on him because he doesn’t blindly follow the crowd.
Jonathan accepts his mutiny and flies off into the distance into the afterlife.
"Do you want to fly so much that you will forgive the Flock, and learn, and go back to them one day and work to help them know?" Jonathan asks his first student, Fletcher Lynd Seagull, before getting into any further talks. The idea that the stronger can reach more by leaving the weaker friends behind seems totally rejected. Hence, love, deserved respect, and forgiveness all seem to be equally important to the freedom from the pressure to obey the rules just because they are commonly accepted
There are several ways this book can be interpreted…
Christian themes: Jonathan is like Jesus trying to get his flock so they can “follow in his teachings”.
Transcendence: Jonathan leaves this life and progresses to the next
Passion: My favorite part of this book is how Jonathan was told by his peers to give up on what he loves to be like everyone else. But he doesn’t, he follows his dreams despite what the nay-sayers say. Do what you love to do no matter what, and follow your dreams. That is what this book is about…dreams.
Yes, read it right now. I really love this book because it changed my life at a point when I was confused. Everyone should read this book. If you are faced with the challenge to either sell out or be yourself, read this book. If you are pissed that your parents are making you go on a mission, read this book. If your father is concerned you became an artist rather then a doctor, read this book. People from all walks of life should read it. 10 out of 10
