My Read of the Month:
Title: Brida: A Novel (P.S.)
Author: Paulo Coelho
Genre: Philosophical Fiction
Paulo always writes about issues that are universally common to all of us as human beings such as self-discovery, our search for love, pursuing our dreams and our spirituality.
I make it a point to read his books on a regular basis. His books are really thought-provoking and spell-binding. He is gifted writer.
In this story of Brida, it centres around a young Irish girl and her quest for knowledge. And like most of his other books, it
is a tale of love, passion, mystery and spirituality masterly crafted to awaken your mind and spirit with nuggets of wisdom.
As this story portrays mainly on traditional magical teachings that is woven with Catholic Christianity. Hence, much has to be read with an open but discerning mind especially for the ‘conservtists’ or ‘fundalemantalists’.
Though I found this book an enjoyable read that whetted my appetite for more with each chapter, but I was quite disappointed in how the story was concluded as an ending.
Who should read it: Fans of Paulho Coelho and for those who might not have read any of his books. Makes an exceptional good read for those who are mel and contemplative.
