مرّ وقتٌ طويل .. منذ وقعت عيناي على هذا الكتاب ..

اليوم .. قلّبتُ صفحاته .. وقفتُ برهة بين دفتيه .. اطلعتُ على أيامي معه وثارت في نفسي أشجان وأحزان ..

هذا الكتاب .. هو كالدليل .. يضيء في قلبك نور .. ويذكي في نفسك أشياء رائعة وراقية ..

عبارة عن مجموعة من النصوص .. تقرؤها .. مرة .. مرتين .. عشر .. وفي كل مرة تحس أن المكان ينير ويشع .. وفي كل مرة تحس في قلبك الراحة وتقر عينك وتبرد ..

باولو كويلو في هذه التحفة الفنية الراقية .. استطاع أن يتوغل نحو الأعماق ويسبرها ويكتشف أسراراً خطيرة في شخصية الإنسان ال...more

Recommends it for: be carried anywhere you go and to be readed as your new experience in life
There are a lot of insights of human life that I can learn from this amazing book...I love the way he wrote all of the stories which were contained of enchanting messages for anyone who read it, especially me. It helps me smile, wrinkle my eye brows whenever I didn't get the point yet of one story, helps me passing my day, even when I got stuck by the traffic jam.
In short, I must say that this book is loveable...and I love it.

Like the Flowing River is a collection of Paulo Coelho’s stories and articles which were published in different newspapers around the world.

Like the Flowing River is definitely one of Coelho’s best, for me. It contained his thoughts and reflections on different things—from the story of the pencil to a piece of bread that fell wrong side up. I’m amused at how he sees the Universe. How he comes up with various realizations out of the simplest things that happen in his life.

This proves that Paulo C...more

Each Christmas, we have an exchange of gifts. The actual exchange of gifts take place during the annual Christmas party. Anyway, all employees were asked to create a *wish list*. The wish list contained all (or some) of the things that we would like to receive for Christmas. Last Christmas (2011), I was collecting Nicholas Sparks' books. This Christmas (2012), I was collecting Paulo Coelho books. So, naturally, I wrote down *Paulo Coelho books* on my wish list. To cut the story short, I received...more

ما بين حكاية الموت الذي كان يرتدي المنامة وحكاية الشر الذي كان يريد أن يفعل الخير، صادفتني رسالة إلى جورج بوش ونص عن فن التجريب وآخر عن التصرف بدافع , وغرقت لأكثر من ثلاثة أيام من بعد قرائتي لكتاب كالنهر الذي يجري لباولو كويلهو في دائرة من التأملات ودوامة من الأفكار ..

من المعروف عن باولو كويلهو أنه كثيراً ما يلبسك أجنحته ويسمح لك بالطيران (لصفحات) في عالمه، الذي يبدو تماماً كعالمك من حيث مظهره الخارجي لكنك ستدرك لاحقاً بأنك أبداً لم تراه في السابق كما يبدو لك الآن..

اخترت لكم هذان النصان ، ليس با...more

Oh, why do I even bother anymore with Coelho? His books are easy reads but leave a bad aftertaste, much like how I feel after I'm done bingeing on junk food. I keep giving him a try because I can feel his earnestness, and I recognize some of my own tendency to simplify spirituality like he does in his life, (which shows in his writing), but I think with this collection of stories, I am very close to or am giving him up. I give this two stars because some of the stories are enjoyable. Some (on re...more

كآن ممل بالنسبة لي فبدآيته بس بعدهآ أندمجت كليآ معاه عمومن الكتآب جميل بأسلوبة البسيط مليء بنصوص من مختلف الموضوعات من مقآلات وتجارب شخصيه
الكثير من الأفكآر الملهمة لفهم الحيآة بشكل أعمق أحببت فيه عبارات كثيره
بعضها يلآمس جروحي شخصيا وبعضها يلامس الوآقع بشكل مباشر

My friend told me to read this book about a year ago but I was never really interested in reading. I never found the right book to read. This summer I read a book for Paulo Coelho and I loved it. So I kept buying his books and reading them. His books are really different. They are all about life and how we choose our path. Some are all about love, destiny, and death. After I read most of his books I decided to start reading this book ''Like the Flowing River''. It made a great impact on the way...more

كالنهر الذي يجري ..
أول كتاب قرأته لباولو .. وقد كنت متابع له كثيراً في السابق
أقرأ مقتبسات من مقالاته وبعض الأقوال

كالنهر الذي يجري .. هو نهر يجري ولا يتوقف أيضاً
مقالات كتبت بين عامي ١٩٩٨ و ٢٠٠٥ تحمل في طياتها قيم إنسانية كثيرة جداً
وهي مرحلة مهمة في حياة باولو الكاتب .. بحيث تفسر لنا فلسفته ومدى جمال حرفة في هذه المقالات

الكتاب جميل جداً / يستحق القراءة مرات عديدة

I don't know how to explain my love for this book. It was a surprised gift from a new lovely friend, and I brought it with me to a short vacation in a beautiful island. Early in a morning, I had a long swim on the deserted beach, then lied down under the shade of almond trees, reading the book, pondering my life, then swimming again. In front of me, on the other side of the sea, Hongkong city resting quietly, glittering in the morning sun rays shining through grey clouds. What a wonderful moment...more

Reader: "No, what?"

Reader: "Not me. Shut up and do something interesting."

Reader: "Sounds alright."

Book: "A and B had an argument and stopped talking to each other. A died suddenly. B was sad because he had never apologised to A. Not talking to each other is very sad. Whaddaya think? :D"

I never thought that a man can really be so profound and inspiring even in his daily life, until I read Paulo Coelho’s Like the Flowing River.

Before I read this book, I have read Coelho’s book “The Alchemist”, and just credited him for a wonderful work of art. But after reading this book, I discovered that Coelho is not only a masterful writer but also a man full of wisdom in real life.

Like the Flowing River is a gleaning of accounts of his experiences, stories he had been told and thoughts than...more

يعتبر أكثر من أي هدية يتمناها معجب من الكاتب!
كتاب ممتاز , هو أشبه ما تكون بالخواطر وعصارة التجارب والقصص المميزة التي مرت على باولو كويلو على مدى حياته , صقلها , وصبها بأسلوبه المشوق بقدرة و إبداع . تحدث بشكل أكبر عن حياته الشخصية مثل إهتمامه برماية القوس , حياته في البيرنييه .. وتجرية موته ... وحتى جنازته ! الكثير من المقالات (الخواطر) لامست إحساسي , [ الطرف الآخر من برج بابل ] أحسست بقدر المترجمين ! و [ نورما والأشياء الجميلة ] أحسست بجمال الأيام الرتيبة ! و [ الغيمة والقمر ] أحسست بقيمة كل شي...more

The book consists of short stories and tales by Paulo Coelho. The stories are very uplifting (even if all are not happy and joyous) and spiritual and most are things that have happened to him on his journeys, or legends and tales he has heard from people he's met. Some are just thoughts and views that have been born in his mind triggered by everyday life or his surroundings.

As is typical to Coelho's writing style and personal beliefs, God keeps being mentioned but as Coelho's view on religion is...more

I have been searching for this book quite some time ago. When i finally found it with quite a cheap price, i bought it directly. I started to read it about a month ago, or so, and i just finished it today. I'm seriously liking this book, because i think, this book helped me to think more and learn more about life. Short stories can sometimes induce you more than one long one.

Like the flowing River contains short stories that Coelho have submitted to some papers (if i'm not mistaken) and had his...more

Kādā tumšā, aukstā, ziemas vakarā grāmatu plauktā pamanīju grāmatu, kas piesaista ar sava vāka noformējumu un nosaukumu.
šoreiz šī grāmata bija Paulu Koelju darbs "Kā aizplūstoša upe". Šajā grāmatā ir apkopoti stāsti no 1998. gada līdz 2004. gadam, ko darba autors ir savācis ceļojot pa pasauli. Katram stāstam ir kāda morāle, pamācība, vai vienkārši kaut kas par ko ir vērts aizdomāties. Stāstos tiek aprakstītas dažādas situācijas un to risinājumi vai jēga. Man šīs grāmatas tēma ir ļoti tuva, jo st...more

A colectânea dos livros de auto-ajuda aparecem numa época do desemprego estrutural está em crescente, em que uma quantidade significativa de desempregados não terão mais acesso ao trabalho porque tornaram-se supérfluos a serem substituídos pelas máquinas da revolução micro-electrónica. Estes livros são focados nos supérfluos do século XXI para que a esperança exista no fundo destas páginas, e o leitor consiga a alimentar a sua neurose de se voltar a uma vida saudável e realizável dentro do capit...more

I sort of regret reading through this so fast – I wonder if it would be better to read a story a night, to contemplate the simple yet profound messages Coelho preaches in each one. As with his other works, he refers to one’s “Personal Legend” and “Warriors of Light” and discusses the language everyone can understand and the “Soul of the World.” Likewise, from “Self-Deception” and stories about self-doubt and comparing oneself to others, he writes about confidence and peace in the present moment...more

Still reading the book, but so far so good.. I like the story of the pencil.. :)
According to this book, pencil have 5 quality, First: you are capable of great things, but u must never forget that there is a hand guiding your steps. We call that hand God, and He always guides us according to His will.
Second: now and then. I have to stop writing and use a sharpener. That makes the pencil suffer a little, but afterwards, he's much sharper. So you, too, must learn to bear certain pains and sorrows,...more

I did not like this book not only because it's naive and focuses too much on the little things but also because I was shocked by how empty and yet braggy the life of a best-selling author is. I just wasted 4 hours of my life reading (and skipping) useless crap while I might have just skipped to the end; Some Final Prayers; merely because it's the only page that's worth reading.

This is a great book of meditations large and small in the form of stories and true vignettes from the life of the author. I recommend keeping it on your nightstand and reading just one or two stories before you go to bed--you'll sleep well. If you are familiar with Coelho's works, you'll recognize the "warrior of the light" and the reference to "personal legends" (see The Alchemist). The collection is a testament to Coelho's expansive horizon (see The Valkyries: An Encounter with Angels) and wi...more

A collection of amazing short stories! I loved many of them and they are absolutely awesome. Some give some values and some are just written for the pleasure of reading. Some of the stories which I liked are The Dead Man who wore Pajamas, The Devil's Pool, The Story of a Pencil, etc. These are some of the stories which I like from the many I loved. Some stories make you laugh, some makes you think and some just makes you happily smile. :) I felt a kind of happy feeling after reading this book. I...more

As always when you finish Paulo Coelho's books,for a very very long time you are still lost in them,in the beauty of the words,in the beautiful references to life's everyday happenings and making you always wonder at your own life.Like the Flowing River is a collection of numerous short stories and reflections of Coelho's life put in a very simple way.one of my favourites is 'looking at other people's gardens' where he says that when we start planting the garden of our life we'l surely find our...more

Before i start reading, one of my friends said that I showed finish first the other books of Paulo Coelho.
I've learned a lot. This book contains the stories and compilations of great experiences by the author and other people who entered his life.
The story of the pencil was so interesting and I've been reflecting throughout these days.
We are humans who aren't perfect at all, we are capable of committing mistakes and the story taught me to learn how to dwell with it. You have to correct what y...more

Contrary to the reviews of the people...I might differ on this one! I found this an ok read...little spiritual...though I must compliment the author for bringing certain thoughts that we might have encountered at some point of time and penning it down quite superbly.

Having said that...the book has certain chapters which are beautifully written and my favourites being

The importance of repetition
The story of pencil
How to climb mountains
Genghis khan and his falcon
Manuel is an important man

الكتاب عبارة عن مجموعة من النصوص التي كتبها باولو كويللو في فترات مختلفة من حياته ، الكتاب عميق جداً على الرغم من لغته البسيطة ، يتحدث الكاتب في مختلف الموضوعات ، فهو يتحدث عن الحب و الحياة و الانسان و العالم بالإضافة للكثير من الموضوعات الفلسفية و الفكرية ، ما يميز الكتاب أنه يصلح لأي انسان مهما كان جنسه أو لونه أو دينه أو اعتقاده . باولو كويللو يعتبر من الأدباء الصوفيين الذين يسعون للتواصل مع العالم بشكل أكبر ، و يسعون لفهم الحياة بشكل أعمق ، لا ننسى أنه يعتبر بشكل ما فيلسوفاً يسعى لتفسير الحي...more
