If you re expecting another The Alchemist, just stop right there, turn around, and never look back Seriously Trust me and do yourself a favor.After the success of The Alchemist, I feel like Coelho just threw a bunch of ideas together and called it a new story Sure, it has the themes of faith, love, and following your dreams, but in my opinion, the story just wasn t concrete enough to really I don t know, actually teach you anything if that s what Coelho sought to do The events just felt disconnected.It took me a few months to finish this book because I kept getting bored of it I finally finished it for the sake of finishing it.The author tried to throw in a few themes from The Alchemist, and there are maybe a few good ideas in here, but nothing good enough to waste your time reading an entire book to glean some tidbits.Note A lot of reviewers onsaid they didn t like the fact that the book delved so much into religion, but I didn t mind that. If pain must come, may it come quickly Because I have a life to live, and I need to live it in the best way possible If he has to make a choice, may he make it now Then I will either wait for him or forget him Paulo Coelho, By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept 1 5 Really Is this a joke because I thought this was absolutely horrible. From Paulo Coelho, Author Of The Bestselling The Alchemist, Comes A Poignant, Richly Poetic Story That Reflects The Depth Of Love And LifeRarely Does Adolescent Love Reach Its Full Potential, But What Happens When Two Young Lovers Reunite After Eleven Years Time Has Transformed Pilar Into A Strong And Independent Woman, While Her Devoted Childhood Friend Has Grown Into A Handsome And Charismatic Spiritual Leader She Has Learned Well How To Bury Her Feelings And He Has Turned To Religion As A Refuge From His Raging Inner ConflictsNow They Are Together Once Again, Embarking On A Journey Fraught With Difficulties, As Long Buried Demons Of Blame And Resentment Resurface After Than A Decade But In A Small Village In The French Pyrenees, By The Waters Of The River Piedra, A Most Special Relationship Will Be Reexamined In The Dazzling Light Of Some Of Life S Biggest Questions MY FAVORITE LINES FROM THE BOOK At some point, we have each said through our tears, I m suffering for a love that s not worth it We suffer because we feel we are givingthan we receive We suffer because our love is going unrecognized We suffer because we are unable to impose our own rules True love is an act of total surrender You have to take risks We will only understand the miracle of life fully when we allow the unexpected to happen Every day, God gives us the sun and also one moment in which we have the ability to change everything that makes us unhappy Every day, we try to pretend that we haven t perceived the moment, that it doesn t exist that today is the same as yesterday and will be the same as tomorrow But if people really pay attention in their everyday lives, they will discover that magic moment It may arrive in the instant when we are doing something mundane, like putting our front door key in the lock it may lie hidden in the quiet that follows the lunch hour or in the thousand and one things that all seems the same to us But that moment exists a moment when all the power of the stars becomes a part of us and enables us to perform miracles I could have What does this phrase mean At any given moment in our lives, there are certain things that could have happened but didn t The magic moments go unrecognized, and then suddenly, the hand of destiny changes everything If pain must come, may it come quickly Because I have a life to live, and I need to live it in the best way possible If he has to make a choice, may he make it now Then I will either wait for him or forget him Waiting is painful Forgetting is painful But not knowing which to do is the worst kind of suffering Dreams mean work. this book was a joke horrible, pretentious, verbose, and yet basically content free language which in itself might be seen as quite an achievement if you re trying to do really bad writing and the content uummmmm, empty, trite banalities and cliches i really dont understand how anyone who has even spent a minute reflecting on any philosophical question would get any sort of insight out of such a book as i remember it, the outline of the plot even sounded pretty promising sth about a woman and a man reuniting and falling in love again, i mean, you could work with that, right but since the entire plot was nothing but a stage for his, as i mentioned, really very insightless insights it was not much help, either especially, when he started the crazy religious talk, that i seem to remember, some crazy miracle stuff. yeah, that was when i seriously lost patience with that book i honestly have to say, in terms of style, language, and content, this was probably the worst book i have ever finished reading. takes deep breath Okay , so I saw a GR update about this book and I was like yeah. I have read it and its a really good one but i couldnt remember the plot and everything So I started searching for this book and for what it felt like a million years I found it and read it AGAIN.Then I mentally slapped my brain for not remembering this book, and my brain was like yeah. Theres only one explanation for not remembering it, that the aliens must have had abducted me and wiped my memory clean.Just kidding or not Anyways. About the book,You know about those book where you dont have to know anything about the book or its story or its characters, you just have to dive in This is one of those book Its the kind of book you d either Love or Hate, theres no in between.I Loved this book, I know some people hated it, maybe they didnt understand the whole concept for lack of better word but i adored it.It has so many good quotes, I have highlighted almost whole book and now my book looks like a rainbow Yes I use different color highlighters everytime.The book is about loss, seeking love, finding love around you, keeping your love, your beliefs Yes many people can argue about somethings in this book and thats okay, everything has two sides, its upto you how you look at it Even somethings left me questioning too but thats okay Maybe we are allowed to have some doubts and questions.I dont know what else to say about this book, its just that you have to trust me, and just dive in And i promise you won t come out empty hand, you d either Learn or Understand or Find something, I can gurantee you that.

This book wasn t even close to as good as The Alchemist, and it seems as though it was translated really poorly too If I could read Portugese I would try it, but since I m limited to English or Spanish, I think I m done with trying to make this book better than my original reaction deemed it.It wasn t a very cohesive story, the whole feminine face of God thing was cool, but fairly random and not well elaborated, the love story was sappy and pathetic It is a super short book, especially when considering the size of the font and the margins, and yet I felt like I was creeping through it I finished it, as other reviewers have mentioned, solely for the sake of finishing it Why do we do this to ourselves Why can t I belike Trish and just let sucky books go without having to finish them Anyway, save yourself from the self flagellation that will come when you don t feel like finishing it, and don t even start it. I have just experienced a wonderful and enlightening love story that has moved me deeply Indeed, Paulo Coelho s By The River Piedra I Sat Down And Wept is a must read for people who have lost, found, or still seeking for love I have made some references to this novel in some of my past blogs But now, I am writingabout it on my personal realizations after experiencing this enigmatic literary work.I have jotted down some lines from the book that struck me the most, and taken note of my insights 1 But love is much like a dam if you allow a tiny crack to form through which only a trickle of water can pass, that trickle will quickly bring down the whole stucture and soon no one will be able to control the force of the water.Me Falling in love is a beautiful experience Deciding to fall in love is the hard part But this analogy of love and a dam, explains it quite well Once you start having the slightest thought that maybe love is possible or start seeing a person in a different light, all other feelings and ideas will start to rush in Then you feel afraid of what you have just realized and try to thrust it away No escape Your heart and mind fight it out Still, it doesn t matter which ends up victorious, because from then on, you will never see things the same way again 2 In real life, love has to be possible Even if it is not returned right away, love can only survive when the hope exists that you will be able to win over the person you desire.Me Love is forbearing But sometimes the heart is impatient This statement is still unclear to me Maybe because, I have often easily given up in this quest for winning over the person I desire I guess this statement is experiential, only then will there be full understanding of it 3 Waiting is painful Forgetting is painful But not knowing which to do is the worst kind of suffering.Me How would we know if it is time to move on or that it is still worth another try I have seen a lot with this dilemma, both from movies and through acquaintances And indeed, seeing them in that state where they have no idea which way to take is truly heart breaking I have been in both situations I have waited I have forgotten But by some cosmic conspiracy, somehow I still find myself wondering, what if I took the other path Forgetting is like a point of no return If you choose to forget and leave, then you must stand by your decision, no matter how difficult it promises to be Only by then will you be able to move on In waiting, the clincher would be how long should you wait, and do you really have something to wait for Either way, you will find yourself hurting at one point in time 4 What I remember is that love returned in the form of another man, new hopes and new dreams.Me The bible says that love is constant and that love is forever Poets reiterate this in their masterpieces Hopeless romantics sing about it Then if this be the case, I have no reason to believe that love ever fails It just transforms This should be able to keep the flame of hope of finding the love of our lives burning through and through There you go I am done with another book A couple of weeks later, I would no longer fully remember what it was about or who the characters were But somehow I would still recall the feelings I got as I was reading through it and my pot of insights has yet again been stirred and repleted.P.S The female character is Pilar She was the one telling the story But the male character remained nameless Hmm Or did I just forget his name already Wrote this review in 2004 right after reading the book Review published on my ex blog To love is to lose control Hm, this is a strange and hard one to review On the one hand, there is no plot, barely anything happens at all Yet on the other the writing is so lyrical, so peaceful, and tackles such interesting and important topics that it kept me reading Pilar is invited to a seminar by an old friend Their reunion strikes a chord and changes them both They travel together across parts of Spain and France, discussing life, love, faith and spirituality A lot of the focus is on Christian ideas, but there are also plenty of other forms of spirituality included At times it really made me stop and think, and the writing took me away from myself and into another world, a simpler world where faith is easier and the people are kinder Overall I did enjoy it, I liked some of the different ideas included a major one being God portrayed as a woman, or the mother a lot of interesting stuff Reckon I ll keep this one to reread someday as I m sure there was plenty that I missed or went over my headLove can consign us to hell or to paradise, but it always takes us somewhere 3.5 stars
