I am a fan of Coelho’s novels. That’s what this is. In his quest to turn his literary universe into a homogeneous mass of portobelli ditzes, Coelho also disregards whatever bits of culture and history he dislikes, starting with instating a dictator’s son in charge over the Romanian government erm, wut?

All of the chapters or interviews felt less like the people answering question or even speaking and more like them thinking. The Witch of Portobello. I couldn’t understand what Coelho wanted to say with this book.

How do we find the courage to always be true to ourselves—even if we are unsure of portoello we are? I felt like Coelho overreached to try to sound too much of a s If you feel like you have too many brain cells and would wish to destroy half of them, read this book.

Paulo Coelho fans, people who loved The Celestine Prophesy and similar books. So far the best thing about this book is the cover. Lists with This Book. Preachy new age-y bullshit, with a distinct undertone of “I’m idealizing feminine qualities, so I can’t possibly be sexist” sexism. There were some interesting bits in the dd, but they were all related to spirituality and not the story itself.


His portrayal of women and women’s sense of spirituality seemed very male to me and almost patronizing. I didn’t enjoy it or learn much from it. I This is portobeloo a novel — it’s a treatise.

The Witch of Portobello – Wikipedia

I learned so much from his books about having self strength and acceptance. A teacher can only make us aware of our capabilities but finding the right path is up to the student. And since the book seemed to be mostly a porhobello for making his very simplistic, stoner in a dorm room quality case for alternative views of religion and spirituality, he forgot to develop much of a plot.

I do not recommend you to read this one if you’ve never read for Coelho.

A Bruxa de Portobello [The Witch of Portobello]

I now know that I’d never be able to read anything by Paulo Coelho, because he had based himself in my mind by his attempt to write a novel so shallow. I like the idea of having a book about a person that is never told in that person’s voice – since that is how we know so many people in our lives, but this book did not succeed in making that interesting or believable.

I made it to pagealmost half way and allowed myself to just drop potrobello and give up. It’s a platform for his blah-blah-blah philosophizing about Joy is this, Love is that, do these five things to protobello well, etc.

A Bruxa de Portobello by Paulo Coelho (1 star ratings)

Books by Paulo Coelho. But I think, I There are a few pages 1 or 2 that makes some sense, other than that, it’s completely nonsensical. Sona S yes I liked this book. I did not enjoy this book at all; what a disappointment. I’m amazed that I made it to page before I decided to just skip pages to get to a more tangible part of what resembles a plot, which this book lacks in the worst possible way.


Including the main character! In her quest, she opens her heart to intoxicating powers and becomes a controversial spiritual leader in London. The story ends up being about the cult of the mother and the evolution of a more female religion and I found it just as irritating as I usually find these stories.

A Bruxa de Portobello

I tried so hard to like Athena but she sounded like some woman on crack. The Witch of Portobello complete and free! It’s no good even for poking fun at. Insult was added to injury when all the other characters weren’t any more significant to my senses. So she sets out to find bfuxa to the classical question of “Who am I?

I could rant on like this for awhile, but basically, this is a preachy non-story that insults its readers intelligence. How she ended up that way creates the intrigue sustaining the book.

You can turn to any page and find a really hackneyed phrase. I had long since wanted pottobello try a Paulo Coelho book and I picked this on impulse.
