What i learned from this book? And what our angels really look like. And how to “broaden our horizons. I say they’re wrong. View all 7 comments. Sep valquirjas, May rated it did not like it Shelves: This may sound like I’m dumb or something, but really, I didn’t get the point of this novel. I read from somewhere that the book is about “journey of faith, of trust, of forgiveness, of love, of self-discovery, and of battling the darkness within ourselves, and wanting to change”.
Okay, so I got these messages, but only vaguely. In addition, I read paulp that this book is semi-biographical – but is it?
I find myself wondering which events were real, Okay. I find myself wondering which events were real, and which were fiction. For this matter, I categorized The Valquiruas under my “literature-fiction” bookshelf.
Moreover, I got disturbed by how the male protagonist treated his wife. I mean, I felt like he was just “taking her for granted”. Last but not least, I got bored with the story and how it progressed. Due to these factors, I didn’t finish reading the novel.
I finally closed the book shortly after the wife had a battle with the leader of the valkyries.
Also, I bought other Paulo Coelho books, and I hope that when I get to read them, I will see for myself why many people like his works. View all 8 comments. Dec 01, Lily Wren rated it it was ok. I do usually enjoy Coelho’s books and often take something inspiring away from them however, with The Valkyries I am not too sure.
Coelho tells the story of his spiritual journey and experiences gained travelling through the desert. Throughout the journey we witness Coelho fighting his inner demons and working towards spiritual enlightenment and self development. We are also introduced to his wife Chris who accompanies Coelho and, in her own way, faces her own inner struggles and spiritual enlig I do usually enjoy Coelho’s books and often take something inspiring away from them however, with The Valkyries I am not too sure.
We are also introduced to his wife Chris who accompanies Coelho and, in her own way, faces her own inner struggles and spiritual enlightenment.
Throughout the book I found myself sympathising with Chris, becoming annoyed at her husband and following her journey more closely. On some occasions I become frustrated with Coehlo, his sense of importance and, more often, self indulgence. But, having said this, I believe this is what Coehlo wanted to portray and what was involved in his journey of battling against the ego and inner demons.
Coehlo’s books often bring spiritual messages that can be inspiring and insightful. However, I feel The Valkyries has nothing further to add except maybe the possiblity of seeing Coehlo stripped bare and laying out his vulnerabilities for all to see which is quite a difficult and admirable thing to do Nov 06, Lamski Kikita rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Why do we ever forget our long conversations with angels as children?
We all grow up and deny wonderful spiritual experiences only to try so hard to find them again as adults. The book tells of Coelho’s journey in the late 80s with his wife in the Mojave desert in search of a band of warrior women dressed in coelh preaching about faith called the Valkyries, so he can learn from them how to see his guardian angel.

My favorite part was when the leader of the valkyries told Paulo that he needs not just courage, but the courage of a woman. That was so powerful and amazing! This book is about the spiritual quest cielho of us experience in different ways in search of the same thing.
Embracing love and light can lead to our finding what we are looking for. View all 3 comments. Feb 22, Nawar rated it really liked it. Apr 15, Daniel rated it it was amazing. I never pay too much attention to the plot of Coelho books because the plot is merely a means of this author to get his point across. The chapters of this book do culminate in to a satisfying climax, however the messages in valqiurias book are woven in to the detail of the text throughout rather than the paullo.
I found the third person narrative quite annoying to begin with, it is very perplexing to me as to why someone would choose xoelho write about themselves in the third person. However writing is a cont I never pay too much attention to the plot of Coelho books because the plot is merely a means of this author to get his point across. However writing is a continuous process of experiment so I will cut Mr Coelho some slack. This must have been a difficult book to write, it was certainly a difficult book to read because it was so crammed with wisdom that I wanted to remember valquiias sentence.
I would suggest rereading coelo pages as you go along and taking your time with this piece, you will be rewarded with many great things to churn over in your mind. I read it in six days but I wish I spent ten or more days on it. I gave valquiris book five stars because Vallquirias is a gifted thinker paulp the ideas he produces in his work amaze me at the genius one person can possess.
I must have bought this book after I read The Pilgrimageby the same author, some 25 years ago. Recently, upon realizing what the subject really was, I decided to “realease” it without reading it, but I gave in and I tried valquirizs some chapters. I took more interest in the story after reading the Author’s Note and realizing that this is an account of events apparently experienced by Paulo Coelho and his wife. However, that wasn’t enough to make me read all of it. Until page I managed to keep myself slightly interested in the story, told by way of a very primary, yet effective, writing.
From there on I started to get annoyed with so much nonsense and, at last, after a chapter which Valquirais rather disliked, I decided to end this experiment. I believe that this narrative might make sense to some people and a few passages even made some sense to me, hence the 2 star rating Aug 29, Jacqueline rated it liked it. This book was more journey than I had thought it would be. It was a personal story of the author and his wife and sometimes I felt uncomfortable by how much was shared.
But I also learned more about spiritual quests and how far people can take them. It is like anything else in valquiias it is whatever you want to make it.
The story was inspiring for that quest. Some of it was hard to imagine such as the motorcycle group of women touring the US with an intense quest for passing along spiritual knowled This book was more journey than I had thought it would be.
Some of it was hard to imagine such as the motorcycle group of women touring the US with an intense quest for passing along spiritual knowledge and bonking any man that happens to come along during the process. I love Coelho’s books and I loved this one, it is certainly not one that I would recommend to anyone though. It is one that I would recommend selectively. Jun 23, Mutasim Billah rated it did not like it. The only good thing about this book was that it was a relatively easy read. Otherwise, the entire plot and the characters are like the yawn-inducing, bland portraits found in some struggling artist’s repertoire.
Overused, hipster enigma of fabled tales doesn’t work here as well as it did in The Alchemist. The result is boring, colourless and instantly forgettable. Dec 14, Florence Lyon rated it it was ok. This is a novel about Paulo’s journey to find his guardian angel as advised by the master of his secret order. His wife joins him on this one and the story is told in the third person. It starts in Rio and somehow and some reason I forget, they go to the Mojave Desert.
Foolishly, one day they go on an outing into the desert and get sunstroke. Luckily, they are rescued and spend a couple of days recovering.
