Once again, I hit upon a simple read with pearls of thought and contemplation that staggered my senses. This book is more a collection of thoughts than a cohesive story and I found myself lost in them.
Many times I would stop reading after just one page left in awe contemplating what I had just read and how the lesson within the text applied to me.
If you're a fellow student of life and search for a deeper understanding and meaning to your time on this planet, then I highly recommend this book. I'm confident your experience will be similar to mine!
The book starts and ends with a shell of a story, but nothing more than a shell is given. It's like returning to The Alchemist, but instead of creating a parable to teach a series of truths about life, Coelho just puts his maxims out there. And they're good maxims, but it's not nearly as charming when it's just good advice for living.
In the end, it's worth checking out, and it's a quick read - just don't look for rich storytelling. I suppose the value in it is that Coelho is giving you direct advice for living your own story.
After reading about this author, and reading blog posts about him, with quotes from his writings, I was hoping for so much more from this little book.
I consider it the little book that couldn't- inspire me to read more of it!

Light means something else to this fella.
Do not buy for a Jedi warrior learning the path. Best send them off to study with Yoda.
