My first, and I think my last, taste of Paulo Coelho. Just a little too whimsical for me, with the none-too-subtle subtext telling the reader that they should make the most of their life in a rather patronising Pollyanna style. A few interesting character and a sympathetic slovenian setting just about saved it, as did the slight 191 pages.
Glad it was a flat-clear-out-loan from Hazel.
