A classic masterwork of spiritual tension and realization from Paulo Coelho, this powerful story of one man’s battle with self-doubt and fear is now available in a beautiful new package from HarperOne. An essential volume alongside Coelho’s other bestselling and influential books, such as The Alchemist, The Pilgrimage, Brida, and The Winner Stands Alone, the searing and unforgettable narrative in The Valkyries asks the questions most central to all literature—and all of humanity’s quest for understanding. Why is it that we destroy the things we love most? And how can we learn to let go of the past and believe in the future?

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Ami | 2/19/2014

    " Not as good as The Alchemist. Certainly interesting at many points, but overly pedantic in style and almost febrile with the desire to show an understanding of a higher power. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Brian Pivik | 2/8/2014

    " Not Coelho's best book, but a good one nonetheless. As with most of his, I'd re-read it again, and probably pick up on a lot more I did this round. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Sujata | 1/28/2014

    " This mysterious but apparently real world of magic that Coelho attempts to share was (surprisingly) uninspiring to me. The book definitely has its profound and memorable moments, emerging mostly from his wife, Chris' experience accompanying Coelho in his desert quest to speak to his guardian angel. I would recommend forgoing this one for some of his truly shimmering gems. "

    " In search of enlightenment and the "answer" while travelling in the American southwest. "
