    Description
    Something or somebody that begins with just a passing thought and ends up being the only thing we can think about. This can be unerstood as saintliness or insanity.

    The Zahir, Paulo Coelho’s new novel, is a perfect follow-on to The Alchemist. Paulo picks up the theme of the pilgrimage to Santiago but tells a very different, gripping story of love, los and passionate obsession.

    The protagonist of this new novel is a renowned author who writes about spirituality and once went on pilgrimage along the road to Santiago. On a return visit, he is suddenly abandoned by his wife, who leaves no trace of herself behind. As the story unfolds the author becomes obsessed with understanding the reason for her desertion.

    The title comes from a tale by Jorge Luis Borges, published in his book The Aleph. In Arabic Zahir means ‘visible, present and unable to go unnoticed.’ It refers to something or someone that ends up being the only thing we can think of. This state of ‘possession’ can be understood as saintliness or insanity, with a fine line between the two.

    The novel is also full of comments on what it is to be rich and famous, on the meaning of money, on what motivates a writer and on the nature of marriage

    Refreshing and beatiful

    The book is about a writer who wakes up to know that his wife has left him , shes gone her passports gone.. he wonders what happened to her did she leave him, has she been kidnapped.. immediately after the disappearance the book begins to get slow and boring and the author seems to be talking about things which occur to be irrelevant. After a while, just at the point where you'll feel like giving up, the book rapidly picks up pace and your interest. Then there are new vague things which were ...

    Super!

    While running the rat-race of our utterly monotonous lives, people often fail to pursue their dreams and truly discover themselves. Over time the true sense of love is lost from our lives and a only heartless sense of duty keeps the rope of relationships from snapping. Thus, life is no more enjoyable and becomes a burden to be carried along until death. Paulo Coelho's 'The Zahir' speaks of rediscovering oneself and live life to the fullest. This is a story of the power of destiny, self-belief...

    Zahir

    It was quite satisfactory. The beginning was somewhat OK. But later on it was good. And actually it was the 1st book by Paulo Coelho that I am reading. It says the story of a renowned writer whose wife (3rd) suddenly vanishes from his life. First, he became very sad and tries to find where he has lost her (Esther). After 2 long years of miserable life he sees a man, Mikhail whom Esther loved (or the protagonist thought that she loved) Esther. He talks about the energy of love and its free flo...

    Independence - Redefined

    The book was suggested to me by my brother. I thought he was exaggerating. But as soon as I started reading the book, I found out that he was not! The book actually helped me (this might be a personal opinion) overcome many a tough scenes in my relationship.

    Too good! A must read.

    Dumb book - no direction or logic!

    I'am an avid reader and this book currently holds the record for the dumbest book I ever read!!!

    The author seems to have written just to cash in on the craze for books with his name on them. There is definitely no character or flow to the narrative. It all seems to be some random illogical thoughts somehow strung together to make a story-line.

    Stay away...for your own good! The book is not worth the investment in time or thought or in any other sense!
