In his most personal novel to date, internationally best-selling author Paulo Coelho returns with a remarkable journey of self-discovery. Like the main character in his much-beloved The Alchemist, Paulo is facing a grave crisis of faith. As he seeks a path of spiritual renewal and growth, he decides to begin again: to travel, to experiment, to reconnect with people and the landscapes around him.
Setting off to Africa, and then to Europe and Asia via the Trans-Siberian Railway, he initiates a journey to revitalize his energy and passion. Even so, he never expects to meet Hilal. A gifted young violinist, she is the woman Paulo loved five hundred years before - and the woman he betrayed in an act of cowardice so far-reaching that it prevents him from finding real happiness in this life. Together they will initiate a mystical voyage through time and space, traveling a path that teaches love, forgiveness, and the courage to overcome life’s inevitable challenges. Beautiful and inspiring, Aleph invites us to consider the meaning of our own personal journeys: Are we where we want to be, doing what we want to do?
Some books are read. Aleph is lived.

Strangely compelling read
While reincarnation is not a subject that usually draws me in, I really enjoyed listening to Aleph, my first Coelho novel. I had to keep reminding myself it was a novel and not the author's true story. Characters were well-developed and their motivations fascinated me. Settings were described in a particularly visual manner, and I could picture this book as a movie playing in my mind. Not sure why Aleph was so compelling, but I thought about it often when not actually listening to it. Narration was excellent, too.

The story was great, but bad performance
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
if the author or someone really good, narrate this story.
What did you like best about this story?
The storyline is amazing the journey in Aleph.
How could the performance have been better?
The narrator was making voices to change characters and he tried to make some accents too. This was very bad attempt from him.
Plus, there wasn't any energy. the performance of the Alchemist was way better and that person might be appropriate for this book too.
