      Reading this novel was like reading an allegorical tale The moralistic element of the novel is quite very obvious because I guess that is exactly the purpose of this novel Though the story makes use of familiar symbolical meanings and archetypes, the story as well as the characters are fully developed.

      Where do I even begin with this book A range of adjectives come to my mind, the most favorable being boring and bland, and the strongest patronizing and utterly exasperating.I could not read it for entertainment, because the plot line is so predictable If you want to read about a village killing an old woman, go read The Lottery, which is extremely haunting and a staple in the curriculum at least in North America It also has the benefit of being a short story, so you wouldn t have to suffer thro [...]

      I m going to be honestI didn t like this book one bit I don t know if it s just that I dislike Coelho s writing style in general, the translation Spanish , or if it s just the particular books that I have chosen to read from this author The Alchemist When i read the short summary in the back of the book and also some general reviews I thought I was in for a treat about a struggle between good and evil tied in with some suspense or some drama It had the morality struggle but I found that it lacke [...]

      I never know just what to think when reading Paulo Coelho In a way, his books remind me of Aesop s Fables just expanded This book is actually enjoyable when compared to his popular book, The Alchemist The characters are fun and quirky, the subject matter is grittier, and you get a greater sense of the culture.Thinking of the culture, it reminds me of One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garc a M rquez I liked the book It has many truths in it, but I didn t love it.
