Love. The end. This is what I get from this book.
Deeper thoughts? Use love to fulfill your soul’s holes.
A woman with the “perfect” life. That one the system is selling to us since the beginning. What more she needs? To fill the void.
Some sex with a handsome man which is not her husband. Not much of a epic story, but with a simple flow and nice reading.
The way the woman tell us the story, as it is told in first person by the protagonist, fits great to think about the events in a more personal view.
As the other Paulo Coelho book I read this year (O Aleph), I can’t say this a bad book, but not the best from the author.
Good call if you’re looking for a easy reading.
Finished another book. Now from a classic writer (to me at least). Paulo Coelho’s Aleph it is.
Paulo is the first writer that I read more than one book. I Started with Brida, but was The Alchemist that made the magic happen.
Well, almost 10 years passed since the first book. I read a lot more, basically all of them. I loved The Witch of Portobello, the way that book was written.
Aleph fells more like a “Greatest Hits” book, putting together almost every theme from the others.
At the middle of it I felt like “different day, same shit”, but at the end it got a sweeter mood and the story felt “in place” to me.
Not one book that I’ll be recommending, but a good time reading and bethinking about some parts.
Nice travel, I might say.
