Recently, I found time to read this book. The topic is very Coelho, worship of the Goddess by means of Love. But in this book, around twenty people give their perspective of the main character, who herself isn't "interviewed". It took some getting used to, but the book really grew on me!

I've bought my own copy today, so this book will travel further in the not too distant future.

This book will be going with me on a trip to Senegal. I'll try to force it on my host or one of her friends who are visiting simultaneously when I finish it - or leave it in some international touristy spot in Dakar.

Edit: I did not manage to finish reading this book during the trip. It did keep me company on a long stop over in Lisbon, though. I'll journal again when I finish reading the book.

6 out of 10

This is a typical Coelho book - and it will probably be my last. Somehow, the books don't suit me. In itself, the ideas in the books do appeal to me, but the stories around it, the way the ideas are connected, and the writing style annoy me. The characters do not seem very real to me and I cannot connect with them.

The book wil start travelling again soon, don't know where to yet.

__________________________

p.7: I also know that, at night, another part of me will remain wandering in space, in contact with things as real as the pack of cigarettes and the glass of gin before me now.
p.37: I started wandering aimlessly round London, cursing the life I'd chosen, the child I'd agreed to have, and the wife who seemed to have no further interest in me.
p.115: My protector, whom I met while I was wandering in the forest, understood, but he had just died.
p.214: When I saw this man wandering about among the trees, making gestures and saying things I couldn't understand, a kind of peace settled on my heart.

Thank you so much for the first ever RABCK from my wishlist. You totally caught me by surprise. I've been wanting to read this book for a quite a long time.
Thank you so much. Such a great surprise!!

Originally I thought I might savour the book and save it for holiday reading, but I just couldn't resist...I think I will finnish the book long before by vacations starts.
