Alle productspecificaties Paulo Coelho Paulo Coelho Rio de Janeiro, 24 augustus is een Braziliaanse schrijver, die in de gehele wereld wordt gelezen. Paulo Coelho wordt in in Rio de Janeiro geboren. Hij gaat Rechten studeren, maar stopt met deze studie wanneer hij merkt dat hij zijn studie verwaarloost. Hij wil zijn droom verwezenlijken en schrijver worden. Zijn vader beschouwde zijn vroege interesse in de literatuur als een vorm van afwijkend gedrag. Zijn studie rechten staakte hij in om te gaan reizen door het Latijns-Amerikaanse continent, en naar Europa.
Dit boek is een heel anders dan anders Coelho-boek, het bewijst dat hij ook meester is in het schrijven van een spannende, psychologische roman. Manuscript uit Accra, is een zoektocht naar antwoorden op de grote levensjaren. In het najaar van wordt een nieuwe, voordelige editie uitgegeven. Coelho schrijft over religie, over filosofie, over spiritualiteit, maar voelt zich niet verwant met een beweging als New Age.
In zijn romans laten de hoofdpersonages alles achter zich om op zoek te gaan naar hun ware lotsbestemming. In trad Coelho toe tot de Academia Brasileira de Letras.
In het najaar van verschijnt de nieuwe roman van Coelho: De spion. Het centrale thema van Coelho's werk is de zoektocht van de mens naar harmonie en vrede met het universum.
Zijn boeken spelen in op een behoefte aan zingeving en niet-gedefinieerde religiositeit. Coelho is daarnaast columnist voor het tijdschrift Ode. I like Paulo Coelho. I read a couple of his books and definitely felt his point about life. The Alchemist is definitely a favorite. This book was good and pretty much talks about the price of getting what you really want or think you want. He does a good job in the characters and seeing what their true goals are.
How some got to the pinnacle of what they wanted and found the prize or price wasn't worth it.
There are definitely lessons in this book. I don't think it was the best book of his I have read but I did gain some good insights from it. Audio CD Verified download. Coelho is a master writer, no question there, but for me his best works are still "The Alchemist" and "Devil and Ms Prym". The narrative in those two novels is by far the best developed. I wept by the river Piedra while I read the book with the same title, I didn't "get" the witch book named after a mushroom, I liked "Zahir" but felt it was overdone.
With "Winner stands alone", Coelho entered a new realm, usually covered by heavyweights like Umberto Eco, in which novel is made of bits and pieces of popular culture, celebrity, news, cultural theory and documentary-like material which binds the narrative. It is all a good read, but Igor is a bit overdone, from the point when he does his first "kung fu" move.
I have seen read something like that only in Bruce Lee movies. Nice touch, but a little out of place and reads like a dead blonde that falls out of a trunk just when needed to rescue a dysfunctional part of the story.
If I rated this book based on "The Alchemist", it would get no more than two stars. However, in the sea of poorly written books, Coelho's works are a treat and each one deserves five stars.
Don't miss it. For the real thing, however, cultural criticism, you have to pick up Umberto Eco's works essays in particular. I loved the storyline but thought that the ending was anticlimactic. The Alchemist is a much better read for me. Riveting plot line and mystery with excellent character development.

An overcoat to act out your life whilst burst of human nature in a twisted pattern seeps out from the very top of hierarchy giving a vital lesson in life- a typical style of Paulo Coelho "Never let your ego guide your dream lest one loses sight of self in blind pursuit". The story in a dramatic way brings highly unlikely bits characters together to clash in a classical way and yet instead of falsified ending it brutally portrays an ironic truth leaving the reader baffled and unfulfilled thus ending in rambunctious fashion of early eighteenth century -tragic suspenseful endings left to the readers imagination.
In crux of it all the book depicts a fateful encounter of unlikely personality- a clash of egos in a dramatic flair of suspense,wit and intellect and leaves the reader parched after a certain point. Superclass Another success of Paulo Coelho First I must remark on the previous comment- The book isn't boring in the beginning but it does need a while for actions to take place, mostly due to the effort the writer needs to fully explain motives and bring us closer to the mind of very ungratifying main character.
In my opinion, maybe someone likes cold murderers : Through the eyes of a successful businessman we see the world of high class as pointless events full of lost, bored to death people and their lives as simple combination of dreams, plans and destinies with no higher meaning. Businessman believes that it's allowed to kill someone In the name of love. There are few other characters who weren't so important in my opinion, other than their role to clarify the businessman's view on value of human life.
But the real character, though shyly described through the book,in the end is discovered in all it's glory. It's a young model who, though she is only nineteen years old, knows the real meaning of life - love that no money or power could ever download.
