Product Description

Review

Praise for Paulo Coelho:

‘An exceptional writer.' USA Today

‘His books have had a life-enhancing impact on millions of people.’ Times

‘One of the few to deserve the term “Publishing Phenomenon”.’ Independent on Sunday

‘Coelho’s writing is beautifully poetic but his message is what counts…he gives me hope and puts a smile on my face.’ Daily Express

‘“The Alchemist” is a beautiful book about magic, dreams and the treasures we seek elsewhere and then find on our doorstep.‘ Madonna

‘It’s like music, really, the way he writes, it’s so beautiful. It’s a gift that I envy above all others.’ Julia Roberts

From the Author

When I was fifteen I wanted to be a writer: I wanted to use
glasses, walk with untidy hair and study Hegel, to smoke Galois and spend
half of the time in a rage and the other half depressed, to be
misunderstood by my generation, to use words like epistemology and to read
Ulisses. To write incomprehensible and brilliant books.

Until one day a rock singer asked me to write his song lyrics, retired me
from the search of immortality and returned me to the path of the common
people. And I became a writer.

This made me travel across many regions, meet innumerable people, visit
countless countries, sleep in many places... The pages of this book "Like
the Flowing River" are stories of moments I lived, tales I was told, or
reflections I pondered on at each moment I travelled certain stage of the
river of my life.

They are not new pieces, as they were published in newspapers and magazines
in different countries all over the World, but I have now compiled them and
revised them. They are part of my existence and my experience, and I offer
them to you, my readers.

A lovely read. Perfect to dip into when you want some inspiration in life.
If you have enjoyed Paulo Coelho's novels and like me want to read a whole story in one go, this book gives you that option. How ever tight you are on time you can read a whole short story by the author.

It was a very easy read. I found it a very good book for bedtime reading. Paulo Coelho's collection of inspirational stories helps you sleep with a serene feeling and a positive feeling for the day ahead.

This composition of short stories will stay in my library forever!

I love to randomly open the pages and read one of the chapters. Coelho has a way of calming my rivers and taking me to a place of introspective. He helps you understand the Universe at work and accept that the river will always flow the way it is meant to flow. I take my random selection of a page as the Universe's way of communicating what I need to focus on or learn that day.

We are surrounded by beauty and signs to guide us through our journey. This book is a subtle reminder for keeping our senses open to those signs and opportunities around us in our busy daily lives.

This book encourages you to keep going even if things are going wrong in your life and that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

When you read the stories some a can make you feel sad but there are words of encouragement at the end to not to give up.

If you're a fan of P.Coelho then this is a nice collection of thoughts and anecdotes. It doesn't seem to provide the same satisfaction as some of his novels; many of the entries are as short as one page. However the book holds some valuable thoughts from a great teacher none the less.
