  • insight in darkness Jun 28, 2007
    by bonzo

    Coelho, a writer of mystical and grand perportions, with sparkling fairy tales suitable for anyone's spiritual journey. This piece, as he says himself, is not of the sort. He tackles a topic of great importance and taboo. Prostitution, the oldest profession in the world, is not commonly looked at through Coelho's traditional story telling lens. Nor is explicit sexuality. Despite the negative connotations that can be put on both these subjects, they are an integral and imperative part of humanity and the human journey. Animal journey. Spiritual journey. Our walk is not all sunshine and roses. And there can be beauty in the grotesque. Coelho does a magnificent job iluminating the importance of the darkest parts of our existance, creating the sublime.

  • Better than the Alchemist Jun 17, 2007
    by Josephina

    In high school, I read the Alchemist, and loved it. Then, I tried to find other books by Paulo Coelho, but the blurbs on the back never got me too excited. To be honest, this one didn't either, but I gave it a shot. I loved it. I probably wouldn't have liked it as much in high school as I do now, but it was fantastic. It's a great story about a woman coming to terms with her sexuality and what she wants out of life.
