Description

Here Paulo Coelho details his journey across Spain along the legendaryroad of San Tiago, which pilgrims have travelled since Middle Ages. On this contemporary quest, he encounters a Chaucerian variety of mysterious guides and devilish opponents and learns to understand the nature of truth through the simplicity of life. The Pilgrimage holds an important place in Paulo Coelho's literary canon. His first book, it not only paved the way for his phenomenal novel The Alchemist , but it also fully expresses his humanist philosophy and the depth of his unique search for meaning.

    Coelho's fanciful book contains elements of fantasy, mysticism, self-discovery and spiritualism, which may not be everybody's cup of tea. I quite enjoyed the translation, and am ready to read his next book, the Valkyries.
