I read this after reading the Alchemist. Frankly, I preferred the Alchemist but I tend to like spiritual mystique so that is probably why. I liked this book, I would recommend it, Paul Cohelo does not let you down. The book was in international bestseller

I found this book to be tedious and tiresome. Several interesting characters and subplots are never fully realized because the protagonist is too occupied with contemplating his own remarkable genius.

A novel following a journey of a novelist in search of his wife, or rather of obsessing over why his wife left. But instead of finding her, he finds out things about himself.
This novel had a wonderfully strong start, but started to get very disconnected in the middle. Overall, it was such a joy and such an experience to read. After reading "The Alchemist," I had no interest in reading anymore of Coelho's work, but this novel inspires me to give his work another chance. Looking forward to more Coelho!
Three and a half out of five.
