Journey. The popularity of Paulo Coehlo’s novels led me to read his latest, Aleph. The last time I read a novel this odd was fifteen years ago with The Celestine Prophecy. These new age pseudo-spiritual journey novels may appeal to certain readers, but not to me. I found the writing weak, the characters poorly developed and the premise and plot annoying. Read a sample before you consider reading this novel. If you develop any interest at all from the sample, you’ll find more of the same in the full novel. Otherwise, take a pass.
Rating: One-star (Read only if your interest is strong)
