read first being the Voyage of Somebody the Sailor The story made no sense, and key parts of it were left unexplained what is RAM what is The Tradition I suppose you might get some philosophical value from it, but I didn t really think any of it was earth shattering or even worth a raised eyebrow The only redeeming quality was that it was short and went quickly. This is the 4th Paulo Coelho book I ve read, and my least favorite so far Not that there s anything wrong with it, per se, but I can definitely see his evolution as a writer from this his first to The Witch of Portobello his most recent and one of my faves.For me, this book was slower, less relatable if only because very few people are on this kind of a mystical quest and just less smoothly written overall I also had a hard time sympathizing with the protagonist.Now, that s not to say th This is the 4th Paulo Coelho book I ve read, and my least favorite so far Not that there s anything wrong with it, per se, but I can definitely see his evolution as a writer from this his first to The Witch of Portobello his most recent and one of my faves.For me, this book was slower, less relatable if only because very few people are on this kind of a mystical quest and just less smoothly written overall I also had a hard time sympathizing with the protagonist.Now, that s not to say that there was nothing good about this book It s still a unique story with lots of good messages delivered.But if this is anyone s first experience with Coelho, I say pick up the Zahir, the Witch of Portobello, or the Alchemist, and give him another chance The Pilgrimage is the first book by Brazilian author, Paulo Coelho, and translated into English by Alan Clarke As a devotee of the Tradition, at 38 years old, Paulo makes the mistake, at the ceremony of his ordination as a Master of the Order of RAM, of assuming he is worthy of the sword, and then learns that he will have to travel the Road to Santiago de Castelin aka the Jacobean route, the Milky Way in Spain, to find it This book is his account of that pilgrimage, undertaken in 1986 with a The Pilgrimage is the first book by Brazilian author, Paulo Coelho, and translated into English by Alan Clarke As a devotee of the Tradition, at 38 years old, Paulo makes the mistake, at the ceremony of his ordination as a Master of the Order of RAM, of assuming he is worthy of the sword, and then learns that he will have to travel the Road to Santiago de Castelin aka the Jacobean route, the Milky Way in Spain, to find it This book is his account of that pilgrimage, undertaken in 1986 with a Master of RAM guide, Petrus Previously published as The Diary of a Magus, this is apparently non fiction, but often reads like fiction His tale includes a demon in the guise of a gypsy, a possessed dog, and a guide whose advice is often enigmatic or cryptic It features a generous helping of symbolism, quite a few occasionally trite aphorisms, and eleven ritual exercises that each Pilgrim must practice Tedious, verging on boring, this feelsthan a little contrived It s difficult to write a review of this one It completely depends if you feel attracted to the book and the story.It gives the reader an awful lot to think about This is not a book you can fully understand after one time reading There are a lot of uncommon events in it Liking, or loving it depends highly I think if you have a religious background There are quite a number of excises in the book you can practice I certainly are going to work with several of them One quote from the bo It s difficult to write a review of this one It completely depends if you feel attracted to the book and the story.It gives the reader an awful lot to think about This is not a book you can fully understand after one time reading There are a lot of uncommon events in it Liking, or loving it depends highly I think if you have a religious background There are quite a number of excises in the book you can practice I certainly are going to work with several of them One quote from the book grabbed me extremely, probably because I have been a teacher all my live The secret is , Petrus finally said, you can only learn when you are teaching Together we have walked the Strange Way to Santiago, but while you learned the ways, I learned the meaning of them By explaining them to you, I really learned them myself By becoming a guide I found my own way This remark has played a lead in my work as a teacher I taught them the elementary thing reading, writing and math and they have taught me how they find their ways with the achievements of men over the centuries This was a truly dreadful, embarrassing book I wish I could give it negative stars To say it was self indulgent navel gazing is too good As I got into it, I became furtive when reading on the train, for fear someone who knew the book would see me and conclude I was a moron, or hopelessly seeking life s meaning in all the wrong places. Although described occasionally as a novel, The Pilgrimage is said to be an account of author Coelho s journey and spiritual awakening along the Camino de Santiago in northern Spain which led to him writing the best seller The Alchemist Coelho claims Christianity as his faith, although the narrative reveals a hearty portion of New Age mysticism as well In fact, the audience most likely to be interested in this book will probably be those who enjoy books like The Celestine Prophecy, as opposed Although described occasionally as a novel, The Pilgrimage is said to be an account of author Coelho s journey and spiritual awakening along the Camino de Santiago in northern Spain which led to him writing the best seller The Alchemist Coelho claims Christianity as his faith, although the narrative reveals a hearty portion of New Age mysticism as well In fact, the audience most likely to be interested in this book will probably be those who enjoy books like The Celestine Prophecy, as opposed to casual readers and those who enjoyed the allegorical self empowerment message of The Alchemist A dazzing tale of the road traveled by ordinary people Coelho s book traverses the story and journey of a man himself learning to be extraordinary through the paradoxical beauty of simply understanding what is ordinary What struck me as I gobbled up this book in a mere afternoon was the easygoing cadence and accessibility of language that Coelho employs throughout his book he doesn t try to dazzle you with vernacular or prose, it s simply inherent in the story itself And to me, that s A dazzing tale of the road traveled by ordinary people Coelho s book traverses the story and journey of a man himself learning to be extraordinary through the paradoxical beauty of simply understanding what is ordinary What struck me as I gobbled up this book in a mere afternoon was the easygoing cadence and accessibility of language that Coelho employs throughout his book he doesn t try to dazzle you with vernacular or prose, it s simply inherent in the story itself And to me, that s the message the book is trying to impart upon us that an ordinary person can achieve extraordinary things It reminds me of a quote by Margaret Mead Look this up Never underestimate the power of a small group of dedicated individuals to change the world, it s how it always happens There is a little something in The Pilgrimage for everyone, and it doesn t take a philosopher or scientist to piece together the puzzles that Coelho lays out for us I left this book with a feeling of empowerment, in a way that was spiritual, yet non denominational Even though the book invokes Christianity as its main base of argument, a so called fighting the good fight, in the words of Saint Paul, I felt empowered to do something to enrich and embolden myself on my own pilgrimage of life, and although I might not be fighting demons and climbing mountains, I am not so different from Coelho as I d like to think and I think therein lies the message
