Paulo Coelho - not just a writer but a great philosopher!

After reading The Alchemist and Veronica Decides To Die, I have come to believe that Paulo Coelho, the Brazilian writer, is one of the greatest philosophers gifted to this world. His novels not only have a compelling storyline but also strong lessons on life. 'Veronica' simply left me feeling light-headed as though I had taken an over dose of a cough syrup; but unlike the sugary-medicinal taste of a syrup, Coelho's writing left a happy and peaceful taste in my soul.

His novels inspired me to read up on Coelho. They have definitely been shaped a lot on his own experiences.

What a life! God has indeed blessed this writer abundantly and Coelho in turn has made the best use of his talents!
