Publisher's Summary

Transform your life. Rewrite your destiny.
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.

Amazing!

Wonderful book. Can't believe it was 100% autobiographical. I have studied the reincarnation work of psychiatrist Ian Stevenston and it just made Paulo's story all the more enjoyable.
