    Step inside this captivating account of Paulo Coehlo's pilgrimage along the road to Santiago. This fascinating parable explores the need to find one's own path. In the end, we discover that the extraordinary is always found in the ordinary and simple ways of everyday people. Part adventure story, part guide to self-discovery, this compelling tale delivers the perfect combination of enchantment and insight.

    Benjamin Lupton says: "Hard-hitting and amazing"
    "interesting read"
    Overall

    At first I found the narrator's voice annoying like he was preaching or something, not like he was "talking", ... but eventually you just get used to it. The book is, of course a wonderful read, and really wonder can all of that have happened to one guy on the road??? I read the Alchemist, and this is similar metaphysical renderings and teachings. I enjoyed it and would recommend it

    Ken Follett's World Without End was a global phenomenon, a work of grand historical sweep beloved by millions of readers and acclaimed by critics. Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

    Louis says: "Loved it and learned alot."
    "historical and readable"
    Overall

    I love how Ken is able to teach you history in such an interesting manner. I learned a lot about the first world war that I had not put together or had forgotten from high school. His characters are interesting and varied. I certainly enjoyed it start to finish

    After more than 38 years, Father Tim Kavanagh returns to his childhood home of Holly Springs, Mississippi, on a profoundly personal journey. Whatever became of Tommy Noles, his forbidden childhood friend, and Peggy, the loving woman who was like his second mother? What were the facts behind the court trial that drove the Kavanagh family even further apart?

    Vickie says: "The book is wonderful as always, but....."
    "good book difficult narrator"
    Overall

    At first the narrator's voice was so slllloooowww and labourious, and inappropritate pauses in the syntax of the sentence, but I kept going ... in the end he was able to differentiate the characters appropriately and it was quite enjoyable to listen to,
    the story was, of course, very good, very pleasant as these books are always!
