    1. I enjoy every book by Paulo Cuelho that I ve read 12 to date and this one, his first, has touched me in tha same way the Alchemist did Perhaps it s the common theme of searching for a way a path a meaning and the fact that I can empathise strongly with the sentiment, having walked that exact road to Santiago The mysticism in some of the events of the journey, with hindsight, are a bit too far of a step for me personally but the whole journey of the pilgimage to Santiago and the learning and grow [...]

    4. I really hated this book In fact, it is the second worst book I ve ever 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.


    5. 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 Mas [...]


    6. 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 [...]


    7. 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 [...]


    8. 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 messag [...]


    9. It s my first English novel and I ve truly enjoyed it A book which, even it s not the best of Paulo Coelho, you can not stop reading when you start it thanks to his nice and sweet style First of all, let s consider how we would categorize The Pilgrimage It s a journey of a piligrime and It s also a personnel developpement book which you need it along your life Paulo Coelho takes the road of Santiago de Compostela in order to find his sword, looking for his secret therefore he takes the true path [...]


    10. Everything is contained in sounds The past, the present and the future The person who doesn t know how to listen will never hear the advice that life offers us all the time And only the person who listens to the sounds of the moment is able to make the right decisions So, I have finished this novel or let s say autobiography in 12 days, but I couldn t digest the whole story So I asked for help from my old friend Google and he was of a great help as usual.As far as I understand, Paulo tried to at [...]


    11. 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.


    12. a magnificent read the Strange Road to San Tiago and everything that happens on it, is nothing but a mirror of each and everyone s life journey the book is a reminder that life is brilliant and that we are capable of so much than we beleive we are it is the limiting beleifs that we have that stop us from becomimg who we are supposed to benitely worth reading


    13. Bir Simyac de ildi ama yinede h zl ca olunabilir ve i erisinden al nacak bi eyleri olan g zel bir kitap Gemi limanda g vendedir, ama gemiler limanda beklemeleri i in yap lmaz izleyece imiz en iyi yolun hangisi oldu unu her zaman biliriz, ama yaln zca al k oldu umuz yolu izleriz


    14. The reason for the 1 star rating is the timing It sucks Had I read this prior to Dan Brown s The Da Vinci Code or Angels and Demons this could have earned another star Had I read this right after reading a book on Harry Potter or Percy Jackson, there could have been another star Had I read this when I was in my teens or 20 s, there could have been another one.The mention of Knights of Templar, ancestral rites done in midnight with those chantings, search for a sword, etc just did not hit the rig [...]


    15. What are you expecting other than a spiritual journey from this book Well it is his journey across Spain s Road in order to find himself Something that I ve heard and seen in a movie Darjeling Limited but I supposed I haven t had the chance to conduct it Or I might have lacked a courage to begin it Of all the exercises he introduces, the Speed Exercise dumbfounded me The minute I read the exercise, it reminds me to the regular road I have anytime I go and back from work There s one old man, he s [...]






    16. The smell of the paperback book remained me of Donal Duck magazines I used to read when I was a kid, that was a long time ago Though I still live in the same place, I am looking back at those days nostalgically and as if I lived them in a very far away land that still exist as it was They don t have smart phones, one of the kids in the neighborhood his dad owns a computer and from time to time he allows the neighborhood kids to touch it A new revolutionary ice cream just hit the market the ice c [...]


    17. Well, the 2 week journey made on foot by Paulo Coelho ended for me this evening To tell you the truth, after reading this book, I d like to experience it myselfBut enough about me, let s get straight to the reviewing process This book is the authors first one In it, he writes about his pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela Despite the fact that the journey was filled with many unpleasant things injuries, exhaustion , bad weather conditions and so on , in the end it turned out to be a priceless li [...]




    18. I finished another Paulo Coelho book I like the writings of Paulo because of the life in it The Christian imageries he uses whole along his novel makes it lively I also was travelling all along with him to this pilgrimage to San Tiago I too was fighting with the legion when he fought with it He found his sword now it is my duty to find mine to find the purpose of it Sometimes this type of novels gives us a power to fight a good fight The we are living this earth demands a lot but in a world ful [...]




    19. Ok, I had promised myself, not to read any books by Paolo Coelho, but I ve become a victim of first my curiosity to read one of the most well known books about the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela which I ve done myself just three months ago and secondly of clever book marketing The volume I own is beautifully bound in blue with pigeons, shells and the cathedral of Santiago, all in all very hippyish and thus kind of irresistible to me So far, I enjoy Coelho s strange voyage much than I wou [...]
