“The Pearl is an enduring and classic fable, sensitively told, in simple and beautiful language. It is the story of a fisherman who found a pearl beyond price, the Pearl of the World. With the pearl, he hoped to buy peace and happiness for himself , his wife, and their little son. Instead he found that peace and happiness are not to be purchased. They are, themselves, pearls beyond price.”
This is the description on the back of my copy of The Pearl. I posted it here because I couldn’t have said it any better. The story is simple and relatable. No fancy language. No long segments of dialogue. The Pearl is simply classic, descriptive story-telling.
