FonoLibro presenta el audiolibro en español de la más reciente novela del aclamado autor de El Alquimista y Once Minutos.

FonoLibro se enorgullece en presentar el más reciente bestseller del laureado escritor brasileño Paolo Coelho, La Bruja de Portobello, en una maravillosa producción dramatizada, con un elenco competo, una bellísima música, y efectos de sonido.

Athena es una mujer con un don. Su familia adoptiva, una madre libanesa y un padre, prospero empresario en Beirut, se traslada a Londres cuando estalla la guerra en su país. Allí, en la universidad Athena conoce al padre de su hijo, pero las dificultades de la joven hacen que el matrimonio pronto se rompa.

Convertida en madre, no puede dejar de pensar en la mujer que la trajo al mundo y, para entender cómo pudo abandonarla, decide emprender un viaje a Rumania y buscar a su madre biológica. Pero el viaje no la lleva sólo a dónde pensaba y en el recorrido Athena hace un descubrimiento que cambia para siempre su vida y las de los que la rodean.

En La Bruja de Portobello, Coelho ofrece una trama fascinante y llena de intriga, a través de la cual el lector descubre una antigua tradición basada en la fuerza femenina y en el amor. La Bruja de Portobello relata la vida de Athena mediante la gente que la conocía bien o que no la conocía nada. Entre ellos, su madre adoptiva, un periodista, una sacerdotisa, un historiador y una actriz. Cada persona ilustra un aspecto diferente del carácter de Athena, describiendo lo que vieron y experimentaron y también compartiendo sus propias impresiones, creencias, e inquietudes.

    " I read it so long back, I don't remember the contents. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jackie | 2/19/2014

    " I wasn't a fan of the style at first. I was pretty confused at the beginning, but I must admit that it not only grew on me, but I really appreciated it just a few dozen pages in. It was an interesting story, a quick read, and includes an ending you wouldn't expect. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenea Medina | 2/17/2014

    " Loved the twist in this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Husnul Khatimah | 2/16/2014

    " bagus ceritanya, berpikir dengan sudut pandang yang berbeda, banyak kata-kata kiasan, agak sulit dipahami sesuai dengan gaya bercerita paulo coelho di alchemist :D "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vivek Maskara | 2/5/2014

    " It was a good book but i had higher expectations from this book.It took me too long to complete the book because i never felt like going on... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Athena | 1/22/2014

    " I picked up a copy of this book ages ago for entirely superficial reasons. I was wandering around a bookstore, looking at the discount table and picked up the title because I liked the cover (blue and gold, a woman's back) and when I read the book jacket discovered the main character's name was Athena. My name is Athena and other than books about Greek mythology, I don't often read books with central characters that share my first name. Athena--a witch? What a promise. So I bought the copy and then didn't read it for ages. At some point I picked it up though and found the structure intriguing--the idea of learning about someone solely through the reminiscences and memories of others--a delightful puzzle. The structure felt like a wheel of shorts. . .I imagined a wagon wheel in my head--each narrative was another spoke on the wheel. It moved the story forward but I was unsure if really I was getting to know the main character, Athena, at all. Mostly I learned about the wants and needs of those who knew her. When it moved to the heavy goddess stuff I became uncomfortable with the narrative. Where could it possibly go? And why was the narrative flirting with New Age? I was worried I was suppose to take it seriously which is difficult for an agnostic, suspicious individual like myself to do. But then I read it to the end and in the end I found my reward. I laughed. Out loud. I laughed out loud for several minutes. Rarely have I read a novel with a punchline. I wonder if the novel was constructed for the punchline--a kind of expensive joke. Or was the joke an accident? This novel has a punchline that made me giggle. It deconstructed itself from the mystical to a wonderfully beautiful ordinary. . . "love simply is" I laughed at myself-spokes and the wheel. It's a hilarious book I'll never read again. "

    " A few profound lines here and there, but I daresay it was a fairly annoying read. "

    " Divino(: "

    " It took me so long for me to get through this one... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Walking Medicine | 11/23/2013

    " Beautiful. I truly identified with the protagonist on a deep level as a spiritual woman needing connection to the divine more than anything...and realizing that this awakening happens ONLY within. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Falisha | 10/26/2013

    " nice story. kind of weak end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kimberly Mochi | 7/25/2013

    " I am rating it two because I haven't finished reading it. I just wonder what will happen to Athena's life with all of her dancing, caligraphy and gypsy things. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah Pandes | 7/3/2013

    " Just an average book coming from a wise author. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jan | 5/13/2013

    " I don't like Coehlo's heavy-handed writing style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cone | 4/7/2013

    " made me appreciate Paolo Coelho... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jerico Esmeli | 12/18/2012

    " "Love is not a habit, a commitment, or a debt. It isn't what romantic songs tell us it is--love simply is. That is the testament of Athena or Sherine or Hagia Sofia--love is. No definitions. Love and don't ask too many questions. Just love." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 numberthreeme | 12/1/2012

    " Awalnya membosankan, lama kelamaan bagus juga, dan seperti karya Coelho yang lain : selalu dibuat berpikir tentang banyak hal penting dalam hidup. Saya lanjut membaca karena i give this book a chance to be read by me, kalau saja penulisnya bukan Coelho, mungkin buku ini tidak akan selesai saya baca "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennie | 8/31/2012

    " interesting narrative format - but ultimately disappointing and not a lot of substance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Esraa Znh | 7/21/2012

    " same as his other books "

    " Me perdi en muchos momentos, no ha sido el mejor libro del autor "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jonniel | 9/18/2011

    " An interesting book which tells a story of Athena in a different narrative, was told through the various people who in some way or another became a part of her life. Got me more interested when I found out that one of the mentioned settings in the book was were I actually stayed back in 2011. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rowena | 8/15/2011

    " When I read this I asked myself "What has happened to Paulo Coelho?" I used to love his books but he's gotten way too new age-y and weird for me. I did not enjoy this book at all; what a disappointment. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 6/10/2011

    " Very good read. I really liked the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maria | 5/20/2011

    " It's quite difficult to get into, but fascinating nonetheless. It's got this goddess fascination which I found in the Da Vinci Code. More when I've read. It's not an easy read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Solmaznabipour | 5/7/2011

    " I found the main character thoroughly annoying and couldn't actually enjoy anything about the book. "

    " Beautiful. I truly identified with the protagonist on a deep level as a spiritual woman needing connection to the divine more than anything...and realizing that this awakening happens ONLY within. "

    " Started off good... interesting characters, but the story didn't real go anywhere interesting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dara | 4/21/2011

    " This book really creeped me out, so I stopped reading half-way through. "

    " Great Story, I love this author "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cecille | 4/14/2011

    " It's uncanny, I found it weird but enticing! Paulo Coelho has a deep and brilliant mind to come up with this. I have yet to read his line up of novels. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Camille | 4/9/2011

    " Probably my least favorite book from one of my favorite authors "

    " wonderful story about Hagia Sophia.. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cath | 4/6/2011

    " I'm going to have to read all of Coelho's books, because I LOVE the two I've read so far, The Alchemist and this one. In fact I think I have to own them. If you're interested in spritual/mystical plus really good stories, his books are for you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 4/6/2011

    " I kept thinking I knew precisely where this was going, but kept reading anyway because I was captivated by the characters and language. Was pleasantly surprised by the payoff at the end. Not a life-changer for me, but a memorable read. "
