The biography's structure follows the conversation between Coelho and Arias. It is divided into different sections; "Magic" and "The Writer" being only two examples. Each section is briefly introduced before the main body of the conversations. The reason why I only awarded 4 stars for this book, is because there are times when I would have liked Arias to have developed Coelho's responses to the questions. Otherwise, I really can't fault this book.
Anyone wanting to find out more about Coelho really won't be disappointed. I have to admire Coelho for the truthful and intimate answers he gave. I certainly learnt alot about him; ranging from small details such as the fact he writes all of his novels at night, to more personal details. I think he has to be applauded for being so honest; many of the things he told involved intense experiences and emotions. The section on his experiences with black magic and his kidnapping are times when the reader is only too aware of the pain that must remain for him. But he also shows honesty in telling about his own mistakes, often referring to times when he acted as a "coward."
This is a great book, as it enables readers to understand why Coelho writes about what he does, and why he does it so well. I can't help but like him more now that I have read this.
I am also interested in learning more about Juan Arias and what books he has available (in English) I feel that when one, as Paulo Coelho has done,
opens himself up to a personal conversation, he must have trust in the author.
Forever a fan, Monique McKenna
