Well, I think that I liked and hated this book!
It's not awesome. It's not GREAT. It's just good ... and bad!!
There are so many things that I didn't like, and there are things that I really liked.
What I liked is the idea of redemption. Everyone of us deserve a second chance. We're neither Angels nor demons. We're humans, and being a human means being a sinner.
What I didn't like (pretty much hated actually!!!):
1. Spending so many pages talking about other books and providing us with their plot su ...more
When the Alchemist lost his Charming Powers!
يبدو أن كويلو وضع كل قدراته الروائية في رائعته الخيميائي ولم يبقَ لديه ما يقدّمه ..
نعم هناك رسالة ، لكن القالب الروائي الذي حاول حشرها ضمنه فاشل جدا !
نجمة واحدة للاقتباسات والرسائل الجميلة فقط
أعتقد أنه سيمضي وقت طويل قبل أن أفكر في القراءة لكويلو مجددا
الرواية سيء نوعًا ما تكرار الموضوع ومشاعرها بصيغ مختلفة كان سيء،
يمكن اختصار أحداث الرواية في 20 صفحة دون أدنى تشويه للحبكة
Waste of time.
It is not a story about love. It's a story about adrenaline rush and how bit of excitement and doing something different and new with your husband can save your marriage.
Its a story of egoistic and bored woman who has everything- money, lovely kids, bit dull but understanding and loving husband, respectable job. But she is not happy... Kinda depressed, or maybe not really, she is not sure herself. So she goes off and give this ex boyfriend of hers a b ...more
روايه سيئه وممله لأبعد الحدود
الكاتب أسلوبه أرشق من ذلك ولكنه هنا يضعنا أمام الملل الذي يصيب الأزواج وأشواقهم للتغير عبر الخيانه
الأفكار مستهلكه ،لا جديد لا حكمه لا موعظه لا فكره لا شيء نستفيد منه
ممله بصفحات كثيره كان يمكن إختصارها
الكتاب بعض الأحيان يصيبهم الإفلاس الإبداعي وهذه الروايه إحدى هذه الإفلاسات لكاتب كبير
لم أكملها لكل تلك الأسباب ولست نادم علي عدم إكمالها

I've been a fan of Paulo Coelho's for many years. What I especially enjoy is the modern fairy tale feel his novels have thanks to his b ...more
Really disappointed with this. The Alchemist I found beautiful, Veronika decides to die very well written. I knew within a few pages of starting this that it was not a book of beauty or joy. It's not a bad thing when writers explore different genres, writing styles, techniques. But if they aren't very interesting - what's the point?
Adultery has been written about by many, but I don't think this adds anything to the genre.
A rich, successful woman (with loving husband, wonderful children, big hous ...more
