    " A little weird story by Coelho. Out of topic, after watching the Way, a movie about Camino de Santiago pilgrimage by Martin Sheen and his son, Emilio Estevez, i'm slightly interested in the pilgrimage route of Camino de Santiago and starting to read Conrad Rudolph's book, Pilgrimage to the End of the World: The Road to Santiago de Compostela. Now, it's become one of my dreams that one day I have a chance to take my own journey to the road of Santiago de Compostela. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alex Bigney | 2/11/2014

    " this author made an initial statement with "the alchemist" and for me has become less and less interesting. i read this book and enjoyed parts of it, but it's tedious for such a simple story. it lacks the simple direct charm of "the alchemist" and begins to become a little pretentious about being a cool meaningful story...which for me is characteristic of his other work. "

    " This was an odd book to read, it kept wavering between memoir and something else. It took me a while to commit to finishing it. I kept being distracted by other books. However, the last 5-10 pages made all of it worthwhile. There are ideas in some of the things the narrator came to understand about himself in those final pages that i found to be quite helpful in an abstract way for myself. S'different. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dianne | 5/17/2011

    " Another very unusual book by Paulo Coelho. His stories are like
    myths or legends. They blur the line between reality and magic
    and spiritual things. It's the story of a personal pilgrimage-what else? "

    " This book is in the tradition of Carlos Casteneda, sort of autobiograhical and mystical. It was meant to be inspirational but it just seemed non-credible. There are little truths here and there, and it was an easy read, but not my kind of book "
