  1. So while living in Switzerland, I had this book recommended, nay practically forced upon me by a male acquaintance the book was put into my hands at a party and he told me that I should borrow it Not having read anything by Coelho previously, though with a vague remembrance of my high school teacher violently hating the guy, I set about politely reading it Imagine my surprise when I found out that the book was about an immigrant sex worker in Switzerland It made me than a little uncomfortable, [...]

  2. I didn t find this nearly as good as The Alchemist I do not know if Coelho was trying to really get in the mindset of a woman by over analyzing sex, but I felt a real woman would be less philosophical and emotional about her experiences It seemed to me that she was detached from herself and no matter what shocking things would come her way, she would still never be phased by it and I just felt it was too dehumanized Philosophical rampages on love and being the mother and friend to her clients t [...]

  3. I m giving this book five stars because I definitely thought it was amazing BUT like every other Coelho book I ve read, it let me down in the end How can he articulate so many nuggets of wisdom, often through characters the writing of which expresses the irony and profundity of their insights, and yet packaged in stories with such cliche outcomes So many of his books explore the ephermerality of love, the moment, the permanence of change, the fleetingness of forever and yet, his characters alway [...]

  6. In comparison to my experiences with his other pieces I can confidently say that this Paulo Cohelo work tests the reader in a unique and dangerous way Each of his novels teach valuable lessons for adults through the interesting happenings of his protagonists This story does the same However the lesson taught borders on relationship counseling and sexual education It was just as compelling and effective as it was uncomfortable Uncomfortable in the sense that the information being learned as one r [...]

  7. I was burnt by his book titled Veronica decides to die When I flipped through his bestseller, The Alchemist , I was not too impressed either I thought he was too Celestine Prophecy When I asked people what The Alchemist was all about, they always said it was about searching for something But they could never be able to explain what that something was and they quickly moved on to rave about how inspirational the book was How you can say searching for something you don t even know inspirational is [...]
