Here Paulo Coelho details his journey across Spain along the legendary road of San Tiago, which pilgrims have travelled since the Middle Ages. On this contemporary quest, he encounters a Chaucerian variety of mysterious guides and devilish opponents and learns to understand the nature of truth through the simplicity of life. The Pilgrimage holds an important place in Paulo Coelho's literary canon. His first book, it not only paved the way for his phenomenal novel The Alchemist, but it also fully expresses his humanist philosophy and the depth of his unique search for meaning.

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.more
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.more
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.more
I just couldn't get into it, mysticism just isn't for me, i guess.more
This book is has been such an inspiration to me that I am now planning to do this Pilgimage myself. Beautiful and poetic.more
Interesting spiritual journey, to be read again.more
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.more
An excellent tool to help us think about life, the world around us, and their intrinsic relationship with oneself. Muito obrigado Sr. Coelho.more
it is great application but only first 10 or 20 pages of book, we can read...we can not read complete bookmore
I love this book sooo much!more
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.more
