The Pilgrimage by Paulo Coelho Travel Book Review: The Pilgrimage by Paulo Coelho
The book has sold, by Coelho's count, roughly 35 million copies, and is now the most translated book in the world by any living author. It is actually true that so many of us just leave the struggle when it gets really tough and the chips are really low, whereas actually we were so close to the objective, if only we would have had a little more patience we would have been there. It happens with love, all the time - when you have this love towards someone else, but you want this person to change, to be like you.
Still, I don’t regret reading it; this was overall a worthy read, and memorable, despite de glaring self-help vibes.
The Pilgrimage by Paulo Coelho, Alan R. Clarke | Waterstones
I left this book with a feeling of empowerment, in a way that was spiritual, yet non-denominational. I would have enjoyed it in my late teens/early 20s (when I enjoyed Jonathan Livingston Seagull), but reading this as an adult, I found it annoyingly unsubtle.
I preface my review by saying I am amazed how wildly passionate people are in their feelings toward this novel ~~ regardless of whether they love or hate The Alchemist.
