The Devil and Miss Prymn

Have you ever wondered who would win in a fight between good and evil? 

Yes, good is obvious to win. But,  what is it that good takes to make a win amongst an evil that is stronger than ever?

Viscos is a small town with visitors coming over to hunt. Children’s are sent away to cities to study. And you would always find the town silent.

At the entrance stays Berta, a widow who could talk to spirits. His husband and Chantal’s grandmother.

Chantal? The only young lady in the town. Works at the hotel since ages and could only dream of being rich. 

But, one fine day, a stranger comes in town with 11 gold bars and offers them to the people of the town on one condition.

Not a single voice in the crowd was raised against the choice. The mayor was glad because they had accepted his authority; but the priest knew that this could be a good or a bad sign, because silence does not always mean consent-usually all it meant was that people were incapable of coming up with an immediate response. If someone did not agree, they would later torture themselves with the idea that they had accepted without really wanting to,and the consequences of that would be grave. ” pg165

To kill any human in the town of 279 people.

Who would they kill? 

Who would be the prey? 

Who would be the killer? 

In this town of hunters, where is hunting is only attraction for tourists, would it be so easy to kill a random human being for the prosperity of the town?

Is it easy to kill? 

Can good prevail through evil intentions? 

A story of good and evil.

Paulo Coelho indeed has a world of imagination and words that inspire you through a life time.

And, for choosing between good and evil, i feel “it was all a matter of control. And choice. Nothing more and nothing less” -pg197
