I just can´t get out of my mind all the emotions and thoughts that this novel has triggered within me!!! Though the book is written in a simple, easy to read style, yet the topic is profound and difficult. A must read for anyone who needs to sort out things between sex - love - passion - morality - inner voice! I don´t think that the topic is over exploited at all as Coelho hinted in the introduction: The way he deals with the story of the girl Maria is new, modern - and extremely honest.
Just picture yourself that there is a man reflecting so deeply about what goes on in a woman´s mind!
There is a lot to find out about Paulo Coelho and his philosophy of life! Don´t miss on his novels but don´t miss on his online services either, they are all for free:Paulo Coelho Official WebsitePaulo Coelho Online MagazinePaulo Coelho FanClub Website & Forums
So just to let you know: there is a great community out there (and in here, the www, too!) who is very much following what Paulo Coelho has to say. Last but not least, he is one of the great humanists of our days!
Love & Light,
