Not the best of Paulo Coelho but definitely worth reading it
15 November, 2013
The story of this book is about a quest for lost love, but not in the context as one would expect it to be. A well known writer's wife, Esther, goes missing from their home in Paris. The writer, and narrator in one person, has to figure out what lead to her disappearance and where she went. He meets Mikhail, Esther's friend and it is through him that the narrator starts a journey of self-discovery. Paulo Coelho takes us all the way from Paris to Kazakhstan as we follow the steps of the main protagonist in search of his zahir. It is also on this journey that Paulo Coelho describes and contemplates about various meanings of love.
As usual, Paulo Coelho did not disappoint when it comes to the story, the language and the way he makes their readers think and contemplate.
