    Hello sir Iam one of your biggest fans I have read 2 of your books {The Alchemist , Like The Flowing Rivers }they are not just good books but great books . Each word of those books inspire me a lot

  17. Dear Sir

    I am not a reader but one day I read The Alchemist and after that I try to read all your books. I am deeply touched by your writings and truly feel that these are not a part of fiction but somehow related to our true inner self , i hope you understand what i want to say. You are just great and I hope someday I will get a chance to meet you and take your blessings.

      The main plot of the alchemist has been taken from the arabian nights . . . . .

  18. your writings have left me a changed person, in terms of perspective and attitude. THANK YOU

  19. It took me sometime to truly appreciate The Alchemist. But when I did, it has such a deep meaning and I can identify myself with the alchemist and Santiago. Only one who has really transformed can reach the true message of the book. Thank you.

  20. polyxeni says:

    My sweet Paolo,I’m always enlighted by your soul’s writings in this lifetime!I don’t grasp everything you long to share with us.It’s probably so, simply because I haven’t had some work done in certain fields in my life!I dedicate to you K.Kavafis poem OSO MPOREIS.

  21. Mazarine says:

    funny enough your books do fall into my life at the precise moment when I need them… they’ve mostly been given by my son.. to me.. and I know now ” that when you say in your books look for the omen or the signs” that these messages are being conveyed by the book themselves.
    A realization of dreams and wishes.
    thank you!

  22. Truly inspirational…Books by ‘Paulo Coelho’ are like a shoulder on the roads of life…Hats off.

  23. Very nice No words to say

  24. It is clear that a good reader should be honest. Telling goods and hiding bad feedbacks is very far from someone who wishes his teacher’s improvement. I really like my teacher. I really love him to have more success and that is why I allow myself to tell him that some of your writing could be better. I have learned by you , my dear teacher, that a good friend should tell his beloved the mistake.I m sure his is praying for me and for sure it is my duty to keep him in prayer.
    Regards rasel

  25. A man of vision. The world needs people like you. I’m in love with you.

  26. A big thankyou to Paulo, your books have always fallen into my lap at the perfect moment throughout my life and still continue to do so. You are an inspiration.

  27. I truly enjoy Paolo Coelho’s works. I identify with many of them. Having access to the free texts has added a sprinkle more of Coelho’s magic to my life!
