    Coelho s Alchemist is one of my favorite books I ve read it twice, and both times its simple story and straightforward Universal Truths have stirred me Brida tells a similar story about a youth who feels herself tugged onto a unique path toward greatness But lightning has not struck twice This is a book of only 200 pages, yet it took me almost a month to read, and not only because I was grading hundreds of research papers at the same time It discusses a 21 year old Irish girl Brida who is strang [...]

    How will I know who my Soulmate is Indeed, we are all looking for something Someone to love, someone who loves us, something that adds meaning to our life, our existence Some sign, to know we are not alone Some indication to know that our thoughts, feelings, memories, will not die with us when our physical body perishes Brida addresses all this and much The story is presented as a young woman s quest to find answers to questions that mean the world to her Questions, which if we introspect, come [...]

    The only quotes that I liked and made sense in an otherwise rambling narrative Nothing in the world is ever completely wrong Even a stopped clock is right twice a day Brida s father Pg.99 What is now proved was once only imagin d William Blake Pg.174 I learned that the search for God is a Dark Night, that Faith is a Dark Night And that s hardly a surprise really, because for us each day is a dark night None of us knows what might happen even the next minute, and yet we still go forwards Because [...]

    So what is magic she asked Magic is a bridge, he said at last, a bridge that allows you to walk from the visible world over into the invisible world, and to learn the lessons of both those worlds And how can I learn to cross that bridge By discovering your own way of crossing it Everyone has their own way My first exposure to Coelho was many years ago I read The Alchemist at a time in my life when I was experiencing some major changes and I found very real comfort and guidance there I enjoyed se [...]

    Paulo Coelho is clearly a genius and not a literary one The fact that he can write something this unfathomably dull and make millions of people buy it is a feat of marketing brilliance.This book relies on a series of vagueries that one would imagine the author might at some point explain I suppose Coehlo thinks the mysteriousness of arcane sounding phrases like Tradition of the Moon and Dark Night are substantial enough to keep a reader captivated with neither qualification nor tact Perhaps he f [...]

    It broke my heart into a jillion pieces I feel like crying Love is when you ll be able to understand that at some point, you were never meant to be together That, sometimes, even if you re just in time, it isn t still sufficient It isn r selfish It allows you to grow and to go in search of your path, in search of your soul It does not hinder you to become the person you wanted to be It doesn t require you to give up all the important things you have just becauseOf all the Paulo Coelho books, I b [...]

    Ok, so this book came recommended to me by a freind, so I was pretty excited to read it Once I got started, however, I was a bit disappointed soory M.C First off, the main charachter was niave and a bit juvenille Everything that she thought of and said was almost infintile Secondly, She was supposed to be searching for a Gift and there was never really a solid confirmation as to what this gift was, even when she found it Thirdly, who ever heard of witches being Jesus loving Christians That reall [...]

    I liked this little story, but I enjoyed The Witch of Portobello my first Coelho read However, I think people are looking for a bit too much out of this book It s a good little tale, and I enjoyed a few of the lines from it quotes I think Se or Coelho is simply asking us to reflect Not every book is a wirlwind, instead a book can be a bit like looking out over a still lake with time to think As a friend Harley pointed out, in the prologue Se or Coelho gives the reader pause to think , are you a [...]

    Can somebody please tell me what this book was about I consider myself a pretty savvy reader, but I didn t get this at all I loved the Alchemist and this has much of the same philosophical insights and phrases you want to savor Nothing is wrong all the time, even a stopped clock is right twice a day But I couldn t tell you what the meaning of this book was Girl is on spiritual path to find her Gift Meets the Magus in the forest who is her soul mate but they don t end up together Meets a Witch i [...]

    The special case between me and Poulo Coelho books is that they come in my life exactly when I m in a need of them.Brida tells us a story about finding soulmates Well, if you look at it in that way How one must look for the right things in his life and why it s important The tradition of the sun and moon were good to know.The title is very attractive and fits with the story Couldn t have been a better title Cover is enchanting Reading Poulo Coelho is always a great experience in itself.

    I DID IT I survived this book I am a champion RAAAAAAR I had an extremely violent, visceral reaction to this story, not because of the mixing of religion and witchcraft, not because of the amorphous way this world worked, not because of the insistence that man and woman are the polar opposite sides of the same thing and that everything everywhere is black and white, yin and yang, light and dark, sun and moon, day and night, no gray area ever Not even because I rolled my eyes at nearly everything [...]

    This is a sweet little story In some ways, it reminds me of the kinds of stories one finds in the Bible and the Zohar Such stories aren t stories in terms of the classic ideas of plots, but serve to illustrate spiritual points I see Brida in that way The plot is a very thin scaffold on which to hang a series of philosophical and spiritual ideas From the point of view of fiction, this is less than satisfactory From the point of view of philosophy, the style is certainly one that s tried and true [...]

    Paulo Coelho came highly recommended, so I m going to give him another chance, but this book really didn t live up to my expectations It s supposed to be spiritually enlightening, but I just found it annoying For starters, the main character is too much of a Mary Sue She s beautiful, we re she s presented as critical though we don t notice much of this , she has a gift, everyone thinks she s oh so special Although this book often states that a spiritual search is for everyone, at the same time i [...]

    I ve never read anything by Paulo Coelho before, so I was rather surprised by the pagan spirituality of this little novel It s the story of Brida, an Irish girl in training to become a witch It is full of beautifully worded prose I found myself making little tics and stars beside many paragraphs to go back and examine again my apologies to those who get the ARC from me, lol There is some seriously high minded spirituality folded into this simple book about a woman s quest to learn to use her pow [...]

    The only expression that could describe my impression after reading this book is complete disappointment From the very first pages, Magic is presented to the reader as the book s main theme However, I didn t feel the least bit of magic in the story Many issues are dealt with in Brida all at once, that the point was muffled and the novel lost its sparkle Surprisingly, Coelho here seems confused, struggling to find a particular message to convey It s true that I enjoy Coelho s writings, and believ [...]

    DNF about 28% I guess this book just isn t for me.This book contradicted with my beliefs Also, I couldn t connect with the story The author describes well but I just can t understand what s going on in the story I don t feel the need to read further I apologise for writing a DNF review


    Stephanie

    I love Paulo Coelho, I really dobut this, I wanted to throw against the wall Not necessarily because it was a bad story, but because it ugh, let me start over with this There is a disclaimer in this edition that states something to the effect of do not try this at home While I appreciate the concern, it gives me some doubts as to how fictional he THINKS it is Let me tell you that there is ZERO evidence of any kind of Goddess cult surviving for centuries blah blah It s baloney Now modern Paganism [...]
