Zahir, The - Paulo Coelho Reviews

The Zahir by Paulo Coelho
Jan 20, 2018 03:25 PMRead
"The Zahir" started well, yet around 100 pages into the book my leverage level dropped. God, how I disdained this book! It starts OK: a raving success yet essentially despised author(the storyteller of the book) and his significant other end up being unnecessarily self-satisfied in their marriag...Read More

Excruciating

"The Zahir" started out well, but about 100 pages into the book my interest level dropped. God, how I hated this book! It starts out OK: a best selling but critically disliked author(the narrator of the book) and his wife become too complacent in their marriage and start taking each other for gr...Read More

Its better to avoid this book
Feb 14, 2012 10:15 AMRead
Depressing story which leads you no where. You keep on reading the book with a hope that you will find something inspiring and awesome like "Alchemist". But it never happens in this book. The magic of Alchemist can not be repeated every day. An old man (at least) as per Indian standards is searc...Read More

In the journey of this book he discusses love, betrayal and freedom by the incidences around protagonist's life.The book ...Read More

Pilgrimage to find lost love.
Nov 27, 2016 12:33 AMRead
I went on reading, by the time I realized I was half way through. this book is a master piece, it speaks about the obsession one can have over another person, the zahir that's what author calls it. we all lack in universal love that's what I feel, if you do to this book can shed some light on it...Read More

Finding one self by finding our loved ones
Jul 27, 2013 05:01 PMRead
Though the story is good in itself. It contains love, romance, hatred, ignorance..... but the story can be completed in around 100 pages. Stretching the story will do the reader no good and instead it will make him bored.Just like Sir Paulo Coelho other novel, this novel failed to make a dee...Read More

"Explore the emotions of the human souls"
Feb 24, 2010 11:22 AMRead
"Zahir" is a journey across countries, oceans, and nations of people brings one fact to the surface: People crave feelings to share with others. Whether the state of being alone but not lonely or infatuation while pining for another''s affection, The Zahir explores the emotions of human souls wi...Read More

Reflection of mine
Sep 16, 2009 08:02 PMRead
Its just just only about love...I can be so sure because I m in love too but the most exciting and beautiful thing about the book was its just reflecting my own feelings...truly speaking I was touched by it...Thanks to the author to write a wonderful book.....i m grateful to him.....also I w...Read More

The Zahir - the book of rebirth
Dec 21, 2008 06:24 PMRead
It was when I fell in love with a man. I'm a male and it was weird since that I am not gay. I asked a friend of mine for advise. He told me after listening to the whole story of my feelings that it is something beyond the love; he would be my Zahir then rather than my love. I wondered what it wa...Read More

Dont praise paulo jus coz his first book was gud
May 16, 2008 11:27 AMRead
Even if I do read the zahir again it wont change what the author haswritten. he has mentioned that buddhism traveled from china to Indiawhich is a grave mistake for a writer of his stature tomake. he issending out wrong information to a lot of ignorant people especially inthe...Read More

Does Zahir means Babel?
Nov 15, 2007 10:56 PMRead
I know Coelho will not write a book just to send a message but may be , he will do the same to confuse the reader. So is seemed to be true in case of Zahir. It isn't expected from the writer of Alchemist. Though it is not justifiable to look at the novel that way. But even if it treated the othe...Read More

Waste of time
Jun 22, 2007 02:06 AMRead
Like everyone else, I thought that write of The Alchemist would produce some quality writing. Its such a bogus plot. I felt as if it has been written by somone who was lost in his own mind and did not bother if any reader would be able to connect to him or not.I've read all sorts of good and...Read More

Obsession

I m basically a fiction reader bt when I gt hold of dis n strtd reading it den I found it unprecedented....the book is about a renowned author who once went on a pilgrimage along d road to Santiago.On return visit he is abandonedby his wife  leaving no trace of herself....the stroy unfolds as he...Read More

I loved the Zahir
Jan 28, 2007 09:18 PMRead
This is one of the my favourite books. It has been over a year since I read it but it still holds a place in my heart. There is only ever one story whether it's a book film or poem, that story is a love story. All your favourite films or books were only about love, that's the one ingredient they...Read More

The Zahir--a confused plot!!
Jan 02, 2007 02:50 PMRead
After reading Alchemist, I had lot of expectations from this book. But alas, it disappointed me ina big way. Not only was the writing weak, even the spiritual content that one expects to find in Coehlo's book is deficient. Firstly, he confuses the plot by his own confusion whether he is in love ...Read More

Great Book..
Nov 27, 2006 07:38 PMRead
I think its the longest book by Paulo, as far as I know, but it worths its size, though the main storyline is not suchthat it shouldtake such a long length, but it is very beautifully filled here and there with small incidents and stories which keep you interested the book all the time,I thi...Read More

Horrible....
Jun 14, 2006 04:00 PMRead
This book is horrible.I could write an extremely long-winded review of this book, but it doesn't even deserve it.The author took his tried and tested formula for writing spirituality books and just plugged in a few variables (location, names, etc).The way the author uses the narrarat...Read More

Not great
Jun 05, 2006 01:53 AMRead
The book is repetitive. The plot is really weak. Coelho has said this stuff in other books and he says it again, this time in a less elegant fashion. I also think that having the protagonist fall in love with another woman while he is obsessed with the Zahir is ridiculous.There is so much ta...Read More

Search that never ends
Jun 02, 2006 12:51 PMRead
Let me start off by saying one thing, if it would not have been for The Alchemist (by the same author), very few people would have picked up this book for reading. Although, it cannot be compared with what The Alchemist achieved, it is still worth a read mainly because of the way in which Paulo ...Read More
