Great series - "an adventure in pursuit of a spiritual mystery".  The pages turn themselves.  Worth taking a look at...

I started reading The Celestine Prophecy and to be honest found it to be a total snooze and gave up after 20 pages.  To each their own I guess.  My daughter had given it to me and said she loved it.  We just have opposite books tastes I guess - she loved Wicked too and I couldn't finish that one either.  But I loved Johnny Tremain and she hated it.

I enjoyed the Celestine Prophecy up until the ending. I thought the book had a lot of great lessons in it and then the end was so off the wall that it negated the rest of the story. I found some of it very useful especially in communication with others.

I also tried to read this book and had trouble getting through it.  Never actually finished it and was disappointed because I was so looking forward to reading it.  I'm also the one who had trouble getting interested in "The Shack".  Are there others out there that liked one but not the other?  Or maybe I should just ask if there are any who actually read both wether they like them or not.

Sorry, I have to agree it was a bore and derivitive of a number of books published around the same time.  I never understood the hype around it.
