This book is thought-provoking in that it tries to get you to contemplate your own opinions of whether the heart of humankind is ultimately good or evil. I found the book to be a fast read.

Very thought provoking book about the nature of good and evil. I read Coelho's book "The Alchemist" which is supposed to be his best work but I have found that The Devil and Miss Prym and Veronica Decides to Die much better books. Perhaps this is because they are mostly from the women perspective. This book will keep you thinking about it for a long time

This was a rather interesting, psychologically-driven story told in deceptively simple language. The question of good vs. evil and the drivers are, of course, universal, and I appreciated the way Coelho drew on more than Christian myths in order to weave the story. I'll be thinking on this one for a while.
