Overview: The Witch of Portobello

Product Description

The witch of Portobello is a heartwarming saga of a woman searching for her true self and opening her mind to the positivity of the world. Penned by Paulo Coelho, one of the world's most renowned and best loved storytellers, this book unfolds a captivating tale set in London.


Theme: In this book, we find Coelho return to the Goddess of religion and focus on interpretation of love. The urge to introspect and the courage to be true to ourselves emerges as the dominant motif of the novel.

Style- The story opens with the demise of the lead character, Sherine Khalil or Athena, and is staged as a form of biography in narrative format. The author presents the point of view of the people who knew Athena rather than imposing his own opinion on the readers.

Plot: The lead character Athena is an orphaned Romanian gypsy, adopted by adoring Lebanese parents and has been blessed with magical gifts whose powers were recognized by her at an early age. Motivated by truths and passions unprocurable to most of her contemporaries, she voyaged around Europe and Middle East to pursue the virtues of enlightenment, acceptance, and knowledge. She seeks the answer to the classical question "Who am I?" through varying experiences. In her quest for truth, she opens her heart to intoxicating powers of a mother and in this journey she emerges as a controversial spiritual leader in London. She develops a cult following which pushes her to be an object of modern day witch hunt that apparently climaxes in tragedy.

  1.  Curiosity is everything 7 September, 2013 On
    I loved the curiousness in athena and the way she looks to approach different things in life... good read

    It even made me consider pain as a different thing, made me reach that point that makes you realize the importance of it and how divine does it feel to be at that stage..

    You will start loving it. it was an experience.
