“There it lay, the great pearl, perfect as the moon.”
Like his father and grandfather before him, Kino is a poor diver, gathering pearls from the gulf beds that once brought great wealth to the Kings of Spain and now provide Kino, Juana, and their infant son with meager subsistence. Then, on a day like any other, Kino emerges from the sea with a pearl as large as a sea gull's egg, as "perfect as the moon." With the pearl comes hope, the promise of comfort and of security....

A story of classic simplicity, based on a Mexican folk tale, The Pearl explores the secrets of man's nature, the darkest depths of evil, and the luminous possibilities of love.

From the Trade Paperback edition.


  • This Sucked

    By Pika2090
    I was forced to read this book for class and i HATED it. first of all, this review is not for people who like analyzing literature becuse that is the majority of the book. But even if you enjoy that theres too much description of stuff that doesnt matter. there was a point where he spent 3 pages describing the beach, thats just as many pages as there was actual action. Also the ending sucked and was unnecessary. -978243879423042/10

    My English teacher gave this to us as a summer assignment, and I must say I wasn't too happy about it. But the very last words she had said to us was, "This book will scar you for life!" And believe when I tell you this, IT DID!!!!

    This book is just simply amazing, and the storyline is very interesting. Except, why such a high price?

    I hated every part of this book. If 0 stars was an option this book would be 0 stars. The main character is just horrible
  • Good book

    By 7y Watson
    It was a good book but it didn't really have a setting and what time it took place
  • It's a good book for middle school reading

    By MimiAmy817
    After I read this book, I think it's very boring but it is a good book to read in middle school and a good book to teach for Literature.

    The story itself was good and interesting, but I think the ending was pretty sad and unexpected. Really wish it could have had a different ending
