All Coelho's books are just marvelous. His way of transferring real-life problems into a fiction with a fable-like background and surprising plot is amazing. I adore his individual style and way of presenting reality. The world is not dull any more when you read this. And what is excellent you can find answers to your own life questions and problems too. His sense of sensitivity is enormous and I have always appreciated this kind of approach. A true God in the world of spiritual, fable-like, social and moral stories.
