Your favorite Paulo Coelho Books

2 years, 3 months ago

Hey HEthens!
I got interested in reading Paulo Coelho and found a book at my house. “Manual of the warrior of the light”. I have almost finished it, it is a really amazing book, really inspiring.
So my question was, have you ever read Paulo Coelho? What are your favorites books by him?

Peace & Love

The Alchemist was one of the first books I read in its entirety in one sitting. Great book.

The Alchemist is my favorite, definitely a must read.
I also loved 11 minutes and Brida. Aleph is good too, although not in my top fave from Coelho.
Anyways, I highly recommend the Alchemist, that’s his most popular book and by reading it you can tell what kind of author Coelho is.

Awesome, the Alchemist by Paulo Coelho is now in my must-read-books, any other recommendations?

Veronika decides to die” is among his best work, definetely a must read. “Down by the river i sat and wept” had me thinking for days after reading it. 11 minutes is also pure gold.

Alchemist is absolutely a must-read.

Coelho I think maybe the older the book, the better. I think his newest books are only good because of the Coelho-brand his name has, not the book itself. He’s getting too capitalistic in my opinion.
