Read in November, 2011

I listened to an interview with Paulo Coelho and it elucidated that this is an autobiographical journey into the mystery of his past lives, as he travels the Trans-Siberian Railroad. Like his fiction, Coelho's new book offers so much wisdom, not by telling others how to find the answers, but in retelling how he finds his answers about life purpose and our place in the cosmos. I greatly enjoyed Coelho's magical experience as he lets the universe guide him on his journey, presenting Hilal, a young woman with whom he shares a past life. Going through the "Aleph" or "the point at which everything is in the same place at the same time" with Hilal, enables him to solve a mystery that continued to haunt him in his present life. In the end, the healing power of love, my favorite subject, saves all. As I write my new book which contains a similar theme including past lives, Aleph has been a great source of inspiration to me, as I believe it will be to everyone who reads it.
