How do we find the courage to always be true to ourselves—even if we are unsure of who we are?

That is the central question of international bestselling author Paulo Coelho’s profound new work, The Witch of Portobello. It is the story of a mysterious woman named Athena, told by the many who knew her well—or hardly at all. Like The Alchemist, The Witch of Portobello is the kind of story that will transform the way readers think about love, passion, joy, and sacrifice.

    " I wouldn't say that I enjoyed the story as a whole, but there were some moments worth remembering and some life lessons that I deemed significant on a personal level, mainly about doing what you love and true happiness. Sometimes the message Coelho tries to convey isn't very clear, but I always say that it's not the book, it's what you make of it. "

    " Selalu bisa menikmati karya Paulo Colheo.Kali ini diceritakan dengan cara sedikit berbeda, menggunakan sudut pandang dari orang-orang di sekitar tokoh utama, Athena. Buku ini kembali mengajak mempertanyakan apa itu cinta, hidup, bahagia... Tuhan. Jangan dilewatkan kalo Anda mampir ke toko buku :) "

    " Not one of Coelho's best books, but it still holds the same sort of metaphysical vibe that his book tend to channel. I normally walk away from his books with some sort of uplifting lesson for life, but the message from this book wasn't as clear to me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vladimir | 1/30/2014

    " Sherine Khalil's journey to seek purpose in her life has brought her in contact with "The Mother." A wife, a daughter, a friend, a lover and a mentor. Sherine's journey is nothing but life changing. I'm utterly astounded by Paolo Coelho's mastery of portraying life lessons incorporated in human beliefs that allowed me to take good look at where my life is now and make the most out of it. "

    " Honestly, this was the book that put a pause for a long time in my continuous Paulo Coelho buffness. All that dark magic theories got too ridiculous. Coelho's admission of being involved in the cults was interesting, but Beatles using it too...I mean...give me a break! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alissa | 12/30/2013

    " Good book, but it took me awhile to get into it. The format is very different. "

    " My first book i've read to the amazing paulo writer, then tis experience opened me the window to discover almost all paulo books until before 3 years "

    " very exeptional...... outstanding...! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mohammad Awny | 11/19/2013

    " A journey to explore who you are, & what you should do with your life (I am not taking about the alchemist though...) reading to coelho gives me joy but the stories seems to have the same storyline although not the same sittings, the novel is good & exiting but not unique. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gunner | 11/9/2013

    " uhhhhh quick read. Fun at some points. Plot builds up really high and then drops you too literally. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica Vought | 9/11/2012

    " I didn't care enough about the charachter to finish the book. I've read a few of Coelho's books and I either love them or I can't finish them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina Durst | 6/22/2012

    " Book Club thought this book was OK. Not a favorite but not terrible. The twist at the very end was very interesting. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kathryn | 5/7/2012

    " If it wasn't such a fast read, I wouldn't have bothered finishing it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tanya | 3/25/2012

    " This was an interesting book - I read it as a book club selection. There were times when it definitely grabbed me and times when I could take it or leave it. All in all, though, well written and interesting to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zeinab Salem | 3/5/2012

    " one of his best books "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brittaney | 1/6/2012

    " This book just about changed my life. When I read it I thought the character was based on a real person, the story was so real! So full of life, and I could relate to the entire storyline 100%. One of my favorite books of all time and I must read for anyone and everyone! "

  • 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Walking | 5/4/2011

    " 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. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Christina | 4/25/2011

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

    " 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

    " 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. "
