The World is Full of Foolish Men

Rating: 2 out of 5.

A collection of moralistic fables from the french author Jean de La Fontaine, which didn’t really work for me. I thought the moralistic part of it was a bit too obvious and I prefer it to be a little bit more subtle. I was also not familiar with these (as I have been with the fables from for example Aesop’s fables), so there was little nostalgic feeling from my sight.

The quote however, is very true:
‘The pleasure is twice as sweet
When you cheat a cheat.’
