I bought this book a few months ago. But started to read it only recently. I first read one of Kahlil Gibran's popular works - The Prophet - when I was 14 or 15 and love it ever since. The book was actually banned in Malaysia since 1992. Glad my father caught hold of a copy before it was banned. But then, what's the point of banning when people can still read it over the internet nowadays? :) Further, I have no idea why it was banned. As if M'sians aren't intellectually mature enough to think and decide for themselves.
I think the banned books are the ones that people would be most interested in reading. When I first came to Hungary, I caught hold of another controvesial banned book. One of the reasons I feel blessed being in Hungary. :)
