Story: She is a modern young woman who has learned to control her feelings and look upon life in a rational way. He is a man who can do wonders and that has sought himself into the world of religion and become one charismatic spiritual conductor.

Opinion: This is one of my favorite Paulo Coelho books, it has a story that doesn’t make you doubt the essence of the characters. They had known each other in their teens but somehow they lost contact for one reason or the other. When they one day meet it’s both awkard and a bit suspicioius, I don’t why I wrote suspicious but it feels like they both think the other will try to change who they have become because of the connection they had when they were young. As if they have some sort of power over the other.

Essentially it’s a story about the love between a man and a woman and the love each of them has for God. Almost like a holy trinity. Because God is always present in Coelho’s novels and in this one he explores the feminine aspect of God, describing God as having both male and female attributes. As well as the idea that we all have the ability to perform miracles both in our own lives and in the lives of others.

Having said that, this is one book that shouldn’t be missed, I would recommend Veronika decides to die, but that book is full contradictions, it’s so obvious that she didn’t want to kill herself. And if you haven’t read his novels before then maybe you should start with either this one or The Alchemist.
