Publisher's Summary

Transform your life. Rewrite your destiny.

In his most personal novel to date, internationally best-selling author Paulo Coelho returns with a remarkable journey of self-discovery. Like the main character in his much-beloved The Alchemist, Paulo is facing a grave crisis of faith. As he seeks a path of spiritual renewal and growth, he decides to begin again: to travel, to experiment, to reconnect with people and the landscapes around him.

Setting off to Africa, and then to Europe and Asia via the Trans-Siberian Railway, he initiates a journey to revitalize his energy and passion. Even so, he never expects to meet Hilal. A gifted young violinist, she is the woman Paulo loved five hundred years before - and the woman he betrayed in an act of cowardice so far-reaching that it prevents him from finding real happiness in this life. Together they will initiate a mystical voyage through time and space, traveling a path that teaches love, forgiveness, and the courage to overcome life’s inevitable challenges. Beautiful and inspiring, Aleph invites us to consider the meaning of our own personal journeys: Are we where we want to be, doing what we want to do?

Some books are read. Aleph is lived.

    "Not what I expected"

    I was disappointed in Aleph. Having loved the Alchemist, I thought Aleph might be as captivating but it was not. I do not recommend this one by Coelho.

    "Shocking and interesting!"

    I love Paulo Coelho! I love his stories and his books and this one was a shocker. It exposed reality in a way I could comfortable identify with.

    "More whining than insight"

    A long trip that goes nowhere, with a travel companion that is annoying, cloying, predictable and unnecessary. The weakest of all his books to date.

    "boring infidelity"

    I am very sad to find such a boring and empty book from the famous writer. Plus, it stank of infidelity. I dropped it at 3 hours' mark.

    "This book is BS"
    What disappointed you about Aleph?

    The story is so ridiculous and silly and there is just toooo much no sense... it is a waste of time


    Would you ever listen to anything by Paulo Coelho again?

    Nop... I try to understand why Paulo Coelho is so successful, and I don't get it... nothing personal, he is just not a good writer and I don't find his stories appealing at all... and I'm Brazilian, I can read the original writing, so it is no a "translation" problem.


    What didn’t you like about Mark Bramhall’s performance?

    It was ok.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Boredom... it is just silly and not well written
