Loved it! I am more optimistic than ever in pursuit of my personal legend. Thank you Paulo Coelho!!!
A young shepherd (former divinity accolyte) whose ambitions exceed his birthright, and the journey that leads him to realize his "dreams beyond the horizon".
Filled with quotable quotes, this short novel is a welcome work of everyday wisdom, written in easy-to-listen, parable form. For the person who seeks to find his/her "true self" & own life's purpose.
A cross between "The Little Prince" (Antoine de St.-Exupery) & the writings of Carlos Castaneda (esp. earlier works like, "The Teachings of Don Juan" & "Journey to Ixtalan") but more readily "accessible" for the less-than-enlightened
Jeremy Irons gives a masterful & nuanced performance of the various characters that gradually reveal a series of life's lessons, throughout this tale. His dramatic reading adds clarity to Coelho's gems of wisdom, which are generously sprinkled throughout the book.
