  1.  Mesmerizing story telling with an unprecedented style. 25 June, 2014 On
    Coelho discovers the essence of LOVE in each of his book that i will call as the most enchanting and mesmerizing in terms of content and style. The best part of his writing is that his thoughts are perfectly knit, you never get confused, he expresses himself in the most comprehensible and lucid manner given that fact that all that he discusses his sometimes very esoteric and few people would find it some insane manifestation of personal experiences in terms of writing.But the truth is that there is an excellent insight in his thoughts about LIFE and LOVE. He can discuss the most taboo things in the most sacred way and none can call it sacrilege as his writing is morally correct.He put across his complicated philosophy in such a manner that readers find it very intelligent and easy to grasp.
    In this book he discusses the coexistence of LOVE and miracles.He says that spiritual experience is above all a practical experience of LOVE. Love is uncontrollable, LOVE is juggernaut, it is an impulsive force which is difficult to shackle, and the people who try to control their emotion eventually deceive themselves.Spiritual path can only be traveled through the daily experiences of LOVE. This book is all about surrender. Surrender in LOVE.
    If we are capable of LOVING that means we are nearer to GOD, we can feel a sense of communion with HIM. He has bestowed this beautiful feeling on us thereby we encounter LOVE in different phases of LIFE some pretend to be oblivious of that and some recognizes the knock from the angels of heaven who have come to levitate their soul , smear them with LOVE. Love is loosing oneself for something you think is worthy. Love is a cause and you become the effect. Love is like dam which if breaks inundate you completely, devastate you but that devastation is noble and enriching , ironically few people can only recognize this thing in their life and who does that really cherish life.
    We all are instruments which are used in the glory of love , en route on our sojourn of finding our LOVE which is inevitable and no matter we put effort or not, if we are destined to receive it , it embraces us soon.
    believe in miracles , people who believe in love , believe in miracles because miracles are all around us every day every moment. Pursue your dreams with optimism because they will come true some day and this conviction is being brought to you by faith. faith , some would call it an irrational concept but this is the most vital survive of human kind sine the inception of life. If we loose faith , we loose everything, faith is a bridge between life and death.
    The characters are very strong and you will feel a bit nostalgic and emotionally overwhelmed and that's the magic of Coehlo who drowns you deep in to the character with immaculately threaded thoughts.
    Story , i won't tell, have a great read.
