Rising to the challenge, Paulo and his wife, Cristina, drop everything, pack their bags, and take off on a 40-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.

"Coelho's gripping tale of his adventures...reads like a suspense novel." (San Mateo Times)
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who enjoys Coehlo's work and anyone who is interested in personal growth. This book really gives you some things to think about.
I was intrigued by this audiobook because I never saw it before in any bookstore. As I read the editor´s comment I found it "suitable" and decided to download it but without great expectations. So wrong... this book reflects the human face of Coelho himself, its an interesting "biography" of the man behind the magician with many intimate and personal details. If you have read some other titles from Coelho you´ll find many references in this book and will give you some insight on himself as a human looking for perfection. The message of the book is so inspiring: unconditional love in so many expressions. The plot is full of unexpected turns and very interesting and strong characters.
No, too much detail and information to take in during one listening. A good book to take in slowly.
The understanding of life, our journey and what is important. All of Paulo Coelho's books help to put our life in perspective.
Re-living past pain and mistakes.
I've listened to The Alchemist and 11 minutes and both books are amazing. This one is good but the other two are much more interesting.
