    "The Alchemist" sucked.

    I'm currently reading "Veronika Decides to Die".

    So far, I dislike that he wrote himself into his own book in the beginning. What he wanted to say could have easily been said in an introduction.

    But I have hope.

    i bought the alchemist and then returned it the next day without reading more than a page.

    I've read a couple of Cohelo books, but never had the urge to read The Alchemist. This thread is not encouraging me to pick it up

    I liked the others, they were pretty light and easy reads, but enjoyable stories

    I loved it the first time I read it (I was 13). The second time I re-read parts of it for school a year ago, I was really "WTF!".

    I liked The Devil and Miss Prym, for the fairy-tale quality. Eleven Minutes was a bit of a wank though

    I'm an avid reader, have been since a young age.
    I put every book mentioned in this thread down, except The Devil and Miss Prym, haha.

    Does, you should read 100 Years of Solitude by Marquez - if you haven't already - one of my favourites of all time

    Thanks for the suggestion, I will bookmark a page on it and pick it up next time my books are due.

    I've been meaning to pick that up.

    Yeah I might re-read it, too. It's been a few years.

    Paulo Coelho sucks.

    Marquez I like, but I cant imagine his books in English.
