Publisher's Summary

The new novel by the author of The Alchemist.
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.

A spiritual journey

I have read most of Paulo Coelho's books and I liked this very personal story of a journey on the transibirian railway. Although the story is quite difficult to believe and is certainly not as good as others, the narration was very enjoyable. I have enjoyed listening to it as I do not feel I would have had the patience reading it.
