5.0 out of 5 stars This book changed my life 24 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I first read this book about three years ago when I was sixteen. At that time I was depressed, ill and thought nothing could make that go away. I read this book in three days, i just couldn't put it down. I can only describe it as a ray of light that shattered that darkness and changed my life. I have read the other reviews posted here and resent those people who try to make those of us who enjoyed this book look naive. I am an English honours degree student at one of the top universities in the country and yes, I recognise the weaknesses in the books written style, but I feel we should overlook this. James Redfield is not trying to present us with a piece of great literature, he trying to give us something enlightening, something to make us think and give some hope for our future, something many of us desperately need. The Celestine Prophecy remains one of my favourite books, I remain grateful to James Redfield for writing it and mostly I would hope to unreservedly reccommend this book to everyone who feels there is something missing in their life.

I read this book because I kept bumping into people who would casually mention it and how good they thought it was.

I read a chapter a day on the train. By the time I got to "insight" four or five I was beginning to see past the "story" and becoming more and more intruiged by some of the underlying elements. They gave me a different way of looking at things in my life that I'd never quite managed to get my head round. All of a sudden I was hooked, and I'd become one of those people for who "the book has changed their life".

It's important to realise that actually there's nothing new here, and some of the insights are echoed in main stream psychology; NLP practioners will immediately see parrallels with "future programming".. but for me that's what makes the book so powerful. Although the story's fiction, it's concepts aren't.

Read it with an open mind. Don't expect it to rock your world, just take one insight a day for nine days. You'll feel a whole lot better...

Do you feel discontented with your life? Do you always find that no matter what you do, it never seems like your on the right path. Well if you don`t then you`ve probably read this book. By reading this you will learn more about yourself and the way we interact with each other than you would have thought possible. You will also sound like a complete space cadet when you try to explain any of its contents to your friends but you will find yourself recomending it to everyone you ever meet. Another side effect from reading this: I found that I uncontrollably analys my conversations to make sure I`m not stealing peoples energy!? Read it and understand!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Transformative journey! 9 Aug 2007
Format:Paperback
I read "The Celestine Prophecy" a number of years ago and at the time this book was a unique experience for me, since I hadn't read a fiction novel that interspersed spiritual ideas into the plot.

Afterwards, I learned about a number of other authors who have written in a similar style such as Carlos Castaneda, Dan Millman and Paulo Coelho. Most recently, I came across a recent book "NEXUS: A Neo Novel" by Deborah Morrison and Arvind Singh which combines spiritual wisdom with a compelling narrative.

Still James Redfield, the author of "The Celestine Prophecy," is my first love into this style of writing. Anyone with an open mind, would enjoy reading this book.

Format:Paperback
A lot of people have found this book irritating. Basically it gives you a series of principles about how humans relate to each other. The sources Redfield uses range from Eastern philosophy to modern psychology to quantum physics. It's actually a fairly authoritative and thorough book in terms of its subject-matter. The only problem is, it's written in a very new age, knit-your-own-yoghurt kind of a way, and is not really a well-constructed novel, so a lot of people find it hugely irritating. The style often obscures the message. If you're into spirituality, then try to see beyond the bad novel style, as it's written for 'beginners'. And if you're not into spirituality, then give the book a chance because, despite its wishy-washy style, there are some powerful ideas in it. Of course, according to the principles contained in the book, if you hate it then it's not really the right time for you to be reading it anyway...

3.0 out of 5 stars Life-Changing? Well it's a start! 15 July 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Don't be fooled: this is a work of fiction designed to carry a philosophical message.
Not that there's anything wrong with that; this is often the best way to explain deep concepts to people - I seem to recall that an ancient preacher called Jesus used the same tool. Nonetheless, contrary to what many seem to believe, there is no ancient Prophecy on a lost (and recently found) scroll.
What there is in this book is a series of tools that can help anyone to make sense of their life, their problems and the way that they interact with the world and the people in it. It appears to be culled from a mixture of religious philosophies (especially Tao and Buddhism it seems) and psychology (Jung and Eric Berne's "Games People Play" are obvious references).
If it's original in any way it is, perhaps, in the nature of this synthesis and the way it is expressed. Does the fact it's derivative mean it's worthless? Certainly not - as a way of looking at, in particular, interactions between individuals and the manipulation that goes on between them it is singularly useful. The meditation techniques work too - to a point. And, I admit quite openly, I've known a number of people that have found it invaluable as have many of the reviewers here.
But, for me at least, there's something missing. Maybe it's because of the very fact that it is expressed as a story but it seems unreasonably glib whilst at the same time asking us to accept things that ordinarily we would reject as impossible. For this reviewer, there were simply too many holes, too many unanswered questions and too many assumptions.
So it's an interesting starting point and will certainly give a different perspective on life.
