Aleph (Paperback) Price: Rs.298

Aleph marks a return to Paulo Coelho's beginnings. In a frank and surprising personal story, one of the world's most beloved authors embarks on a remarkable and transformative journey of self- discovery. Facing a grave crisis of faith, and seeking a path of spiritual renewal and growth, Paulo decides to start over: to travel, to experiment, to reconnect with people and the world. On this journey through Europe, Africa, and Asia, he will again meet Hilal—the woman he loved 500 years before—an encounter that will initiate a mystical voyage through time and space, through past and present, in search of himself. Aleph is an encounter with our fears and our sins; a search for love and forgiveness, and the courage to confront the inevitable challenges of life.

On a new Journey

first of all i would like to thank flipkart.com for the wonderful services rendered. keep up the good work guys.

Now about the book.
well I'm no hardcore fan of Paulo Coelho but i must say, of all the books he's written i find this one to be the most the most inspiring save for "the alchemist".
i just got the book today and i already finished reading half of it.It's one of a kind.
It compels you to dive deep within yourself and ask your heart who you really are and what your existence mean to the world. it illuminates the struggles of human life. it emphasizes on the fact that we must live now because no one is getting out alive. this book reminds me of a line in a story by Ruskin Bond, "it's not time that's passing by my friend, its You and I."

Not the best of Paulo coelho's work !!!

With great anticipation i bought the book by advance booking. Thanks to flipkart for its great service. But the book was not worth at all. This book has great resemblance to "Many Lives Many Masters". Both deal with reincarnation, re-birth. Not much punch dialogues, no great philosophy!! Paulo coelho's Alchemist, zahir, pilgrimage, fifth mountain, eleven minutes are classics. This book is no where nearer to those books !!
Though he fails to give his best this time he will always remain my favorite author and one of the greatest writers and philosopher !!

A breathless read

I just finished reading the book, and i must say its Paulo Coelho in all his glory! The book will make you laugh and cry and heal you at the same time. It will transport you to a completely different universe all together. Its a great read and a pure delight. I am breathless and at peace with everything at the same time.
go for it and you will not be disappointed

ENCHANTING VOYAGE

It took nearly 3 days to finish the book named 'Aleph' by Paulo Coelho. Here a little share from me.The novel 'Aleph' starts with the significant note, given by the author.The spiritual fondness,the search of soul,the search of mystic secrets; which are laid in the life's journey;embraced the pages with its fullest mirth.this led it to high note on the subconscious mind of the reader.Author's spiritual guide Mr.J(Jesus ,itself) answered all his queries with ironic,deep integrity. As the story proceeds ,the flaunt less fonts are flowing like a river in so ease, that you can not divert yourself from its melody.The voyage he started led him to a mystic,enchanting Turkish beauty :Hilal ,the new moon.She is a maestro of violin with the prettiest look, which any one in this earth could have.She is like a melancholy flute and the author is her melody.As I went to deepest ,I just lost myself into the Aleph,the world parallel to our world. Coelho created an illusion in which I can see the eternal love,the eternal betrayal and more often the eternal forgiveness.His pen became the paint brush and the blank sheet turned into canvas.In his previous birth , he betrayed Hilal's undying love.So in this incarnation after meeting with Hilal,he could see all his guilt in Hilal's eyes,the eyes which he couldn't ignore ,the eyes in which he found the love,the compassion,the anger,the care;he always sought forgiveness from her. Hilal,the enchanting mystic soul always seek the illicit love from author.But they never made love to each other.Their love is beyond the beauty of earthly heaven.This lady made this voyage too mystic to be the same as the author was.It revealed the key of success to get back his kingdom what the author wanted .At the best he found the God but failed to describe:"One who knows God can not describe him.One who can describe God he doesn't know him." The Aleph, the qi,the soul of bliss through his pen ,the ink flowed and we got spellbound.Really it is worth enchanting in a lonely temple in a shining dawn to the greater divine to improvise the moral values in ourselves.

One who really loves philosophy ,who loves conflicts ,who loves uncertainty must read this book. Otherwise just leave,you just find a full of crap written in 300 pages.

Amazing Read

Mr. Paulo Coelho brings out a gem again.The intricate details of the past lives captured my attention to the fullest.How he connects the dots also facinates me.The connection between physical & spiritual life is made by an utmost ease n thats what makes other ppl believe that they can do the same.The scenic locations also convey a serene picture which also helps a person feel what the author is feeling-Especially the eagle flying over the Baikal Lake episode.A abecadarian that i am,i didnt find it hard to comprehend what the genius wanted to convey.The writing style is also simplistic bereft of jargons which is a good thing as a layman can easily understand what the author wants to put across.
I expected a lot from this book & ahoy this book has lived up to its expectations.

Disappointed...

Firstly.. thanks a lot to Flipkart for pulling me out of oldschool and making me order online. The way books are packaged and delivered is amazing...
coming to Aleph, I brought this book with great anticipation that it would be similar to Alchemist, but after reading I realized that my anticipation is wrong. This book is very different from other works of Paulo Coelho and is not at all close to reality. And, except Alchemist, most of the other books written by Paulo Coelho (including Aleph) contains sexual fantasies / adultry which are difficult to digest. I may not buy any more books written by Paulo.

Shouldnt be the 1st of coelho's book you should be reading !

This was not the 1st book i read of paulo's and certainly not recommended to be the 1st book by paulo you should be reading.I have read alchemist before which was a master piece and so my expectations were pretty high when i ordered this book. But this book failed to live upto my expectation for obvious reasons. Its more of the personal journey of coelho realization of self and at some points fails to relate to you but i liked the way he puts in the fact that life is a journey and every step you take teaches you something about yourself, something which we forgot ever existed. In all a pleasant book to read but certainly not best one !!

Don't classify it

It is unwise and reactionary to classify any of Coelho's work as simply "good" or "not worth it". Aleph is different from several of his past works as it describes a 'real' journey.

Facing a crisis of faith, Paulo decides to fulfill his childhood dream of travelling on the Trans-siberian railway. Starting on his journey, he finds that one of his Russian readers, Hilal, refuses to leave his side. He later learns that Hilal was important to him in past life and he also discovers that he was cursed in that period to follow the destiny he lives today. (Don't want to spoil the book for you.)

This is one of my favorite of Coelho's works. Beautifully written.
