Book Description
A Magical Tale About Forgiving Our Past and Believing in Our Future

The enchanting, true story of The Valkyries begins in Rio de Janeiro when author Paulo Coelho gives his mysterious master, J., the only manuscript for his book The Alchemist. Haunted by a devastating curse, Coelho confesses to J., "I've seen my dreams fall apart just when I seemed about to achieve them." In response, J. gives Coelho a daunting task: He must find and speak with his guardian angel. "The curse can be broken," he replies, "if you complete the task."

Rising to the challenge, Paulo and his wife, Cristina, drop everything, pack their bags, and take off on a forty day adventure into the starkly beautiful and sometimes dangerous Mojave Desert--where they encounter more than they bargained for. A masterful blend of the exotic locales, dramatic adventure, and magical storytelling for which Coelho's fictional works are renowned, this true-life account is at once a modern-day adventure and a metaphysical odyssey.

    I added it because it is probably the worst book I've ever read. And I finished it all - poor me.
    I strongly dislike Coelho despite several attempts to read him after friends' recommendations. Now I don't try anymore - I just think he is terrible.

    Libro assolutamente meraviglioso!
    Purtroppo non esiste una versione italiana ma quella in inglese si legge con estrema facilità (per chi conosce un pò la lingua natutalmente).
