“This is by far the best Coelho book that I've ever read, and certainly one of my favorites. It tackles the biggest questions about philosophy, life, and religion(in a way), while being a great love story at the same time. It's simply the best and you can finish it on one seating. That's how...”see full review » see other reviews »
“Este livro trata muito do poder feminino em deus, a espiritualidade e a volta a crer em algo maior - um objetivo.”Patricia wrote this review 9 days ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“rom Paulo Coelho, author of the international bestseller The Alchemist , comes a poignant, richly poetic story that reflects the depth of love and life. Rarely does adolescent love reach its full potential, but what happens when two young lovers reunite after eleven years? Pilar has become a strong independent woman, but she still loves her friend who has become a spiritual leafer contemplating the priesthood.”Laurel B Deloria wrote this review Saturday, October 26, 2013.

“There is a legend that everything that falls into the waters of this river- leaves, insects, the feathers of birds-is transformed into rocks that make the riverbed. If only I could tear out my heart and hurl it into the current , then my pain and longing would be over, and I could finally forget.”Arjun wrote this review Monday, September 30, 2013.

“This was a quick read and I like Coelho's writing style but felt the story got a bit sappy and melodramatic at times. It is basically a romance with a heavy dose of spirituality thrown in. There were some great messages but there were also messages that made me roll eyes. ”Lynsey wrote this review Sunday, January 27, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“Podria haber sido un buen libro que trata del amor, pero es demasiado religioso para mi gusto. Se me hizo muy pesado y me ha costado acabarlo. Para los amantes de Coelho un libro recomendable, para los demás, no.
Los libros que he leido de Coelho se parecen no solo en que las historias se desarollan en una semana, sino que además la protagonista es una joven con serias dudas existenciales, que a lo largo de una semana pasa por todo tipo de situaciones y planteamientos y que al final de la misma encuentra la solución.
