Beautifully written: Myers' words wrap around the mind like lover's fingers intertwined. Whether you're someone who's loved and lost or still in the throes of that most confusing emotion, "love", then this is the book to try and make sense of it all. Definitely one to cherish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lyrical and Poignant, 27 April 2014
There are books you read that linger in your memory long after the last page has been turned and The Prayer is certainly one of those. The words are lyrical and incredibly poignant whilst the illustrations compliment them wonderfully. I suspect there are few people who will remain unmoved by this short tale from Stephan J Myers. For me it is deserving of a classic and I hope that it continues to be widely read for the haunting message inside. Very different from his Loss De Plott collaborations with Nicholas Smith, which still remain a household favourite. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Loss-Plott-Colour-Red-Dreams-ebook/dp/B00BWV7RJI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1398617400&sr=8-1&keywords=loss+de+plott

5.0 out of 5 stars Written with grace and intrigue, 9 July 2012
This review is from: Loss De Plott (Paperback)
Written with grace and intrigue, every sentence scalpel-sharp - this is a book that is both mysterious and charming in equal measures. I have to agree with the previous author's comparison to The Little Prince, in the sense that it does feel like delving into a stranger's journal. The pictures are charming and fit the text nicely, although I felt that the Stephan J Myers held back a little - I want more!

4.0 out of 5 stars Music fully understands emotion, 8 Jun. 2005
France has certainly awarded us with some of the most talented musicians in the last few decades. Like Jean-Michel Jarre and Air, M83 bring to the broad-minded audience that we most probably are, another enchantingly and often mystifying masterpiece. This album could quite easily be a Continuation from the previous album, as if Anthony and Nicolas (the two founding members) decided they had used every last ounce of their emotions up and rested until two years later to see if it has been restored. But Nicolas doesnt really want to go through it all again, so Anthony Gonzalez is quite happy to take the lead on his own. And this is what the album seems to say - that Anthony appears to like this emotional rollercoaster and finds it so captivating that he is prepared to share it with us. I suppose the question is, are you ready to delve into the small, enticing jar, that just so happens to be labelled 'M83', and discover that it isn't such a small jar after all, but another world that lays way beyond the stars of emotion and the planets of anger, sadness and sorrow.
However, the album only received four stars from me because of the broken and interrupted bursts of powerful anger that Anthony can also embody as well as his love and compassion, and this anger comes in the form of songs such as "Fields, Shorelines and Hunters" & "*". But the album is in no way let down by these songs and by the time "Lower Your Eyelids To Die With The Sun" is brining the long journey to an inspirational and incredibly uplifting finale, you can only think that the epic voyage has been well worth it.
