Reader reviews for The Pilgrimage

This was a gift from somebody who mistook my collecting The Alchemist in different languages for a fanatical love of all things Paulo Coelho. Sadly it doesn't have the qualities that give the other book appeal outside the New Age movement of which I am not a part.

Mystical rubbish! I'm more cross with myself for wasting time reading it than with the book itself. If you're looking for answers or insight into some of life's questions, this self-indulgent ramble isn't it.

audio book, i think the oleft parts out and the book has more content. Just order the book to compare. I liked the German version of this CD with the background noises. I felt I am right there with him. Made me google map the trial. Whish I could go. Great atmosphere on the Cdl.

I enjoyed Coelho's book, The Alchemist, quite a lot. And I have been thinking of making the spiritual pilgrimage along the Camino de Santiago for some time now. So I was looking forward to reading this (non-fiction?) book about his own journey on this well-know path . But I was mostly disappointed in the book. The notes in the back of my book point out that Coelho spent much of his youth following in the footsteps of Carlos Castaneda, and there was something of that kind of mystical journey in this book. I've had a fascination with Castaneda, too, and have read all of his books more than once. But those books, even when they are totally weird, ring true to me. And this one didn't. So much so that I am not even certain this book is non-fiction.

This book is has been such an inspiration to me that I am now planning to do this Pilgimage myself. Beautiful and poetic.

first, this book isn't about El Camino de Santiago at all. it takes a HUGE back seat to Coelho's narcissism. second, this was nothing more than a bunch of new age, humanist, mumbo-jumbo. when he started talking about invoking your personal devil to help you i put it down. maybe i just don't "get it". but "The Alchemist" i did get, and enjoyed immensely. when Coelho sticks to universal human truths he shines. when he starts talking about the sacred "Order of RAM" he loses me.

I just couldn't get into it, mysticism just isn't for me, i guess.
