Yes, I read it a few years ago. Parts of it I thought were beautiful and other parts I just didn't understand.
I think the book reveals itself in different stages. I read it when I was very young and liked it for the ideas. Then I read it when I was older and it made a totally different impact on me and I took a different message. I am sure if I read it now, I will understand it differently. I guess this is true for many books that we read. Anyhow, The Prophet is one of my favourite books.
Yeah, a lot of poetry is like that. It means something different depending on where you're at in your life at the time.

I considered having a reading from The Prophet at my wedding but decided against it because I thought things were getting a bit too sixties and hippyish (it was already a non religious, outdoor ceremony, I wasn't wearing white and was planning to get married barefoot). These days I don't think I'd care about that.
I've never heard of it before.
Wow!

I bought it for my mum one year and somehow a few years later the book managed to end up in my bookcase and has never left since :)
I haven't read it no, but I do enjoy several of his works so I may well like the book. I particularly like On Joy and Sorrow. We read it at my son's funeral.
Yes! It is wonderful.
Yes, in my yoga teaching phase. It is still on the shelves. I just pulled it out and wonder once more at the interesting illustrations. I'm not sure I can link them to the text.
I haven't heard of it, but judging by people's responses, I should get myself a copy.

Try borrowing it from your local library, Vee, if you haven't already bought yourself a copy.

Yes, I have read it many, many years ago when I had a wholesale business in paper goods and this was one of the books we sold.

However I cannot remember a thing about it.

Only excerpts. Not my 'scene', really.
