I liked this little story, but I enjoyed "The Witch of Portobello" (my first Coelho read) more. However, I think people are looking for a bit too much out of this book.

This is the second Paulo Coelho book and just like the Alchemist I really enjoyed it! It was a bit strange to read about how witches respect Christianity and the teachings of the Bible;-)

I enjoy many of Coelho's other books, but this one seemed to lack a point and was quite confusing at times.
