Non mi ha convinto questo libro di Coelho. Non essendo molto religiosa non sono riuscita ad apprezzare gli insegnamenti e le massime di questo racconto. Non so neanche spiegare il perché non mi sia piaciuto, semplicemente non si é rivelato

I'm not sure I understand why Coelho's books are so popular. Is it because anyone can understand them? Because people feel "they've been there"? Because they're supposed to teach us something?I may have liked a couple of his previous novels but
..."s but Brida was not amongst my favourites, to say it mildly. I disliked the lack of passion and strong mind in the main character. To me she was like a piece of stale bread that you've soaked in a bowl full of water. Bland and yucky! Now I can only remember one scene when she and some other weirdos have a dance in the forest. Naked. In front of an audience of families and friends. What was the author thinking?!
