Goodreads Review: Aleph by Paulo Coehlo

AlephAleph by Paulo Coelho

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a really great book. I loved all the amazing detail about a life I clearly do not live, but became incredibly immersed in for a short period of time.

The book mostly takes place on the Trans-Siberian Railway as one man (based on actual events) tackles his life in a way most of us can only dream. He meets a strange, enchanting young woman who believes herself to be somehow connected to him and follows him on this crazy journey. The author takes you on a personal journey into his own life and adventures (this story is based on HIS actual events), and into an intimate glimpse of past lives and what they mean for us all.

Paulo Coelho is a master storyteller that keeps you riveted to your seat wanting to know more and answer the eternal question, Why?

Fascinating book superbly told.

Rated PG-13 for content and some graphic descriptions.
