A very moving book, one of my first encounters with deep, inspirational love and affection. Almost every line of the book made my heart cry in pain for the sweet and thoughtful meaning of love the protagonists gave.

I was scared at first because I thought I was going to go through the same pain and confusion when it was my time. I always thought if I was going to be as thoughtful and deep about the subject of love as the protagonists were.

Again, Coelho style of writing infuses spirituality in it, and stands out. Even though I didn't learn anything from this book, other than being awed at the emotions the author conveyed, it was a very warming read.

The words of the book are the same thoughts of the protagonist, which makes a strong bondage between the two.
