But, while all the rescuing, Gabriel has to face his old devil thi guys again. Will he fight again? Oh! Yes he will. But, he is not able to save her.

you have to do your best to forget her.”

“I’m afraid I said something to the kidnappers that makes that impossible.”

“you threatened to kill them if them harmed her?”

Gabriel nodded.

“death threats are like vows of endless love whispered in the heat of passion—easily made, soon forgotten.”

“not when they’re made by me.”

-the English girl.

But, that does that make him leave the operation? No! 
He is going find the killer, and make him pay for killing an innocence cent girl! A girl who never deserved death! 

It is more to the story, then a kidnap. It is about the two political conflicts among the countries. It is about the altar over oil and natural gas companies. It is about Gabriel all on and his past.

Daniel Silva, has a great wordpower and story telling that leaves you spell bound. And when, it’s Gabriel allon, all you need is popcorn and a coke to go with!

The alchemist

The story of dreams and the heights one could go through to reach them.

“it is the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.” -pg11

Santiago is a shepherd who dreams of finding treasure amidst of a pyramid. But. It is a long way to go.  Pyramids are not right along the corner.

“making a decision was only the beginning of things. When someone makes a decision, he is really dividing into a strong current that will carry him to places he had never dreamed of when he first made the decision.” -pg71


The people he meets up along his journey, the ones who teaches him the language of the soul of the world are what matters more than the treasure. 

The king, the merchant, the alchemist and above all,  the love of his life, Fatima.

“I am going away”,he said. “and I want you to know that I’m coming back. I love you because.. “

“don’t say anything, “Fatima interrupted. “one is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving. ” -pg128

And it is what he learnt that matters. 

“because it is not love to be static like the desert, not is it love to roam the world like the wind. And it’s not love to see everything from a distance, like you do. Love is the force that transforms and improves the soul of the world. ” -pg158

With all of the love,  Paulo Coelho and his first every published book leaves you amazed with his words. Let it be the story or the spiritualism he spreads. His motivation is all that is required in this consistent life.

The story of achievement.

Because, “when you want something, all the universe conspires to Help you achieve that.

Veronika decides to die

In a world where everyone struggles to survive whatever the cost, how could one judge those people who decide to die? 

No one can judge. Each person knows the extent of their own suffering, or the total absence of meaning in their lives. -pg13

Veronika, the girl who decides to die and swallows up number of sleeping pills. Why? Well,  she is bored of her monotonous life and feels the need to leave this world. 

But, she survives. Indeed she makes it to Vilette, the place where all the mad people are treated.

Who does she meet there? 

Well, there is a depressed lady, an advocate who is cures and still prefers to live at the hospital. Marie. 

Zedka, the girl who left her role as mistress and married someone who loved her more. But, did she love her?  Well, no! And years later,  she was devasted, and surely made her way to the hospital and never left. 

Who else?

Eduard,  a schizophrenic. A wanna be painter, who falls in love with Veronika. 
 But, is Veronika here to survive? 

No, she is going to die, as the doctor said. 

“I would say that if someone only has a short time to live and decides to spend that time sitting beside a bed, watching a man sleeping, then that must be love.” -pg146.

What is it that waits for Veronika? 

And Eduard? Will he survive? 

The story of a girl and her recover post a suicide attempt. It takes a strong heart to follow what they really want, and this is what death teaches her, Marie, zedka and Eduard. 

Paulo Coelho and his immense knowledge of visions inspire me to be what I am. Thank you for such amazing works.
