Ugh, so disappointing. This makes me rethink my rating of his other books. Maybe someone else wrote this for him or he just really sucks and I didn't realize it. The writing was incredibly juvenile, the story boring, flat, and pointless. Total waste of time. No more Coelho for me for a good long while.
