    When already famous novelists approach their twilight years do you notice that some of them become strange? Last week I read about Haruki Murakami born 1949; now 62 trying to train himself as a triathlon participant at the age of 55 while writing his memoir What I Talk About When I Talk About Running 2007 Currently I am reading a book by John Steinbeck 1902 1968 who at the age of 59 toured along several states living in a trailer together with his poodle dog Charley and wrote his adventure in Travels With Charley In Search of America 1962 Now at the same age as Steinbeck’s 59 yo Paolo Coelho born 1949 took at 3 week trans Siberian train journey crossing the length of Russia in search of his missing Aleph Aleph is the first letter of the Proto Canaanite alphabet which seems to be full of mystery that Jorge Luis Borges and Paolo Coelho wrote inspirational novels out of this letter I have not read the one of Borges but the way Coelho used this in this novel seems like it translates to something like “spiritual enlightenmentrevelation” Many of my friends love Paolo Coelho’s books I think the reason is that his books are thin slim and easy to read They can instantly perk up one’s spirit because his words can be uplifting and his characters are ordinary mortal people so readers can easily see themselves in them Readers need not spend days or weeks to read each of his book and they already get instant results inspiration happiness sexual tickles yes there are sexual references in most of his books and sometimes shed few tears just to clean ones lachrymal glands So far I’ve read four of his books and just like Murakami’s works the I read the I find his works boring The Alchemist 1988 3 stars; Veronika Decides to Die 1988 4 stars; The Devil and Miss Prym 2000 2 stars and The Pilgrimage 1987 1 star I thought I would stop reading his books but last year I read in the internet that Paolo Coelho was one of the first two the other one being Josh Groban artists who called his followers on Twitter to help the Filipinos at the height of the typhoon Ondoy in October 2010 So as a form of gratitude I promised myself that I would buy and read his next book as soon as it came out so I can entice my fellow Filipinos to do the same Aleph English edition or O Aleph BrazillianTurkish editions is a cross between one of his earliest works The Pilgrimage and The Alchemist Some say that this also reminds them of The Valkyries 1992 but I have not read it yet so I cannot comment on that The story is about his 3 week train journey to fulfill his childhood dream of crossing the length of Russia via a train ride He is accompanied by his publisher editor and translator who also a yogis Then during the trip he meets a 21 yo violinist lady that he falls in love with They sleep together with his hand on her breast and there is a portion when she says I surrendered everything to you and I don’t know how Coelho’s wife in Brazil can accept her womanizing husband and letting the whole world know about it Literary critics became aware of Coelho as novelist in his The Pilgrimage and he became a global household name with his opus The Alchemist Now that his last two novels The Witch of Portobello 2006 and The Winner Stands Alone 2008 did not do well I think he is trying to bring back his old glory by going to pilgrimage and writing a book in a similar manner He may be uick in twitting the world to help people in need but I just don’t buy his open womanizing and flaunting his behavior to the world Worse he tries to reason out through his usual “inspirational” beautifully crafted sentences that the act is like a mystical union of their spirits to achieve a spiritual awakening Sounds like real bullshit A devil in a sheep’s clothingWe don’t need women as young as our daughters to prove that we are still virile and young Let’s stick with our wives and accept that we are old After all in old age there is wisdom I am not a novelist not famous in anyway but I hope I will not be like him when I grow really oldAnd if for whatever reason it has to happen maybe I will just do a Hemingway or a Brautigan

    With what intention did Paulo Coelho wrote this book Any moral or source of inspiration and worst of all any story if present in this book were probably beyond my grasp or there were none to be found Why do I say no story? In very general a story has three parts the beginning the middle and the end This book seemed to me just one of those three part and which one I don’t have the slightest idea The Book This is an autobiography and in the entire story the author travels on trans Siberian railways to cross Russia Throughout the book the author says and seems to be pursuit of something which turns out to be words of forgiveness and ultimately regain his lost kingdom It’s confusing for me Paulo just keep doing random things that make sense only to his high intellectual levelI despise him and this book has made me even repugnant towards him because of nudity that were just forced after every 10 pages or so What I knew was that he wrote inspirational books He himself writes Eleven minutes about a person saying to Paulo that his books make him dream I wonder what kinds of dream that person might be having after reading Eleven minutes although this book was different and Aleph These forced nudity I speak of Aleph only were cheap attempt of turning this tedious read into interesting book yet he failed utterly Why did I read it? I read this on a friend's recommendation all the while he was speaking very highly of this book and in midst of this I heard about Golden ring exercise and this is what led me to read this bookGOLDEN RING LIGHT EXERCISEPerformed just before going to sleep while lying on the bed one has to imagine a ring of golden light moving from head to toe and back with body at centre of ring Keep repeating each time increasing the speed of ring and thus fall asleepNOTE Author warns against the use of this exercise It may lead to undesired conseuenceAs for result it ultimately leads one to dream No ordinary dream but what you see will be moments of your past livesI did the exercise I fell asleep and I dreamed of electric sheep probably I was android

    The book made me realize that one can really love two different person at a time You can love another one even if you're committed with someone without being called a womanizer or anything that you can relate to thatPaulo Coelho's Aleph is about Paulo having met a woman he loved 500 years ago in the current time wherein he is 59 years old and the girl is 21 years old He met the girl Hilal again in a different time the now where in Paulo is already stabled with his wifePaulo admitted that he loves Hilal but then he loves his wife It's just nice that he embraces the fact that he's now with the woman he loved 500 years ago bu then he didn't leave his wife because he's committed to her and because he really loves herI don't know I really love the book Every Paulo Coelho book makes me don't wanna stop reading Seriously

    for the last 4 books and i'm giving Paolo Coelho chances to change my bad impression about himi think this was the last chance his books are either so good or so bad that i barely finished many of them this book talks about his journey crossing Russia on train the events are so slow and even nothing happens i was finishing chapter after chapter waiting to reach the crucial point of the storybut nothing happenedi know nothing about other lives if they do exist or not but the way he talks gives you the idea that they exist and everybody can go back and see his past incarnations you can find some great sentences as usual but no useful conversations the characters changing a lot sometimes they look so wise and others so stupid even Paolo's character was so selfish for me

    This book was deeply disappointing and left me feeling very uneasy about the author It it the first book I've read by Coelho and I my expectations were high The premise was interesting a sense of spiritual dissatisfaction propelling the author to undertake a series of journeys to unexplored places meeting his readers Unfortunately there were no deep spiritual insights on display only yet another banal late middle age crisis involving a young womanThe book centers around Coelho's journey to Russia where he meets Hilal a young beautiful Russian woman who believes she has a very strong spiritual connection with him is clearly infatuated with him and is also a great fan of his work Coelho explains how Hilal or less forces herself into his inner traveling circle describing her as a bit unstable and pitiful This is a very convenient description given that a week or so he later finds himself sleeping with her while traveling through Siberia by train I guess she forced herself upon him Throughout the book he belittles his nymphette traveling companion by ignoring her brashly dismissing her attempts at initiating spiritual rituals apparently this is something only Coelho or shamans can do almost leaving her destitute at the end of the journey and then making a point of telling us that a she flies in economy back to Moscow while he flies in first b he has only had email contact with her once since the journey ended All the while he claims that he viciously betrayed her 500 years ago leaving her to be tortured and burned as a witch He clearly has learned very little during the past 500 years because his public humiliation of her throughout the book is really just another form of betrayal Coelho does seems to have uite enjoyed her sleeping naked with him on the trans siberian express and playing violin naked for him as well To me it came across another middle aged sex tourist in Russia justifying his licentious and arrogant behaviour with a very thin past life cover story I wish I could just return this book and forget about ever having read it Apparently there are a couple of other women from past lives Coelho has yet to meet I wouldn't be surprised if one of these is eually young and beautiful and lives in Thailand or perhaps Cambodia

    I regret that I invested time in reading Coelho´s AlephThere are some books written by Coelho that I like and with Borges in mind the title Aleph appealed to meWith his opening prayer Coelho send nod of assent to the Argentinian genius Borges short story 'Aleph' In Borges' story the Aleph is a point in space that contains all other points Anyone who gazes into it can see everything in the universe from every angle simultaneously without distortion overlapping or confusionBut Borges Aleph is a masterpiece in its own uniue way and can not be compared with Coelho's AlephWhat is Aleph for Coelho? for my part Coelho´s Aleph is a space for a 59 year old man in a midtlife crisis who lives with his alter ego and in the most ingenious way is seeking confirmation while he exploits and manipulates a vulnerable and confused woman with an excuse of that he need forgivenessAnd who do Coelho's alter ego visit for recognition in the end of Aleph? Vladimir PutinPerhaps this book is about a God Complex instead of a bridge to knowledge

    I believe the only one who actually benefited from this book is Paulo and the publisher It is sort of a marketing for himself and his books I just really hate it when people do feel they are that much great to write about themselves in such way A real disturbing time waster exaggerated epic Although characters are based upon real ones they were dull and contributing in a negative way to the whole story plotAnother thing is the idea of the Aleph or i or whatever metaphysical belief is to me such a total insanity I hate it when the writer speaks about an abstract with no basis in reality with great confidence I just feel that heshe is such a deceitfulI must will reconsider next time reading for Coelho I really am regretting buying this novel in the first place

    I would sum up this book in two words; “delectable revelation” of Paulo’s creativity returning on the shelves once ; it is the perfect example why this man is adored and continues to inspire many across the globe touching all ethnicitiesIt was far from predictable as read in “Winner Stands Alone” and better than his other autobiography expeditions; written in the past such as “The Valkyries”A Journey from A to B is one thing But a journey made by Paulo is another experience; as it will be short from dreary The exhilaration originates at the beginning when the ‘Clairvoyant’ says “the soul of turkey will give your husband all the love she possesses but will spill his blood before she reveals what it is she is seeking” With this notion in mind the reader only anticipates dramadespairconflicts to rupture as the journey progresses; but how these events are determined or transpire and unfolded is the cause for this exhilaration All the characters where strong in their own way just like “Winner Stands Alone” this element of diverse characteristics made the read exceptional None of them over powered the other; as their characteristics clashed in a balanced form Yao being the dark horse Hilal as the pretentious naive adolescent woman who brings spark into the book and Paulo himself; acting out the norm in order to discover himself again This compelled him to act on his impulsive cheeky loud mischievous side; as clearly demonstrated with his poor agent Monica and many other scenes throughout the book Even how the words were projected in the book echoed this humorous sides ie “I’m naked” this made me eyes leave its socket only to further read on the other side “apart from my underpants” its these little cheeky parts that gave me the giggles On the other hand Paulo didn’t seem as brave and courageous in comparison to his other books where he takes charge And comes out victorioustriumphant He seemed very vulnerable in this book not like “The Warrior of Light” Further I wish the historical panorama were written in a different style just how it was done in “Eleven Minutes” when Maria writes in her diary This would have helped differentiate the present from the past Nevertheless all the Past Scenes were the most intense visual emotional and staggering parts of the book just as well written in “Brida” Which I thoroughly enjoyedAll in all this book brought a delightful smile to my face from start to end As it had a lot of stops rest the book on your chest and think moments just as the “The Alchemist” made me feel It had all the dosages of what any good book should deliver multiple emotions; I felt overwhelming joy immense sadness excitement laughs and drawn in by intense scenes like the “Ad extirpanda” which was well described and gave a projection Thank you once again Mr Coelho for your inspiring words
