No matter, they’ll be put together anyhow! His main character is told, “Teach what you don’t know” – need I say more? They all spoke in long convoluted preachy sentences, the way that almost no one actually talks.

My biggest complaint about this book was that while the potrobello was told from the perspective of several different people, every single “person” sounded exactly alike! This is not a novel — it’s a treatise. In her quest, she opens her heart to intoxicating powers of mother and becomes a controversial spiritual leader in London.
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. First US Edition Published in The writer elucidates the opinion that the Church has deviated by its stringent rules to the point where it no longer serves Jesus Christor as put in his words in one of the interviews: It’s no good even for poking fun at.
A real disappointment from Coelho. It’s such a overblown book, I couldn’t deal with it. How she ended up that way creates the intrigue sustaining the book.
Return to Book Page. I think it would make good fire starter.

Don’t get me poftobello, I’m as racist as the next person, but I think it’s kind of a given that gypsies are too realistic to believe in that sort of crap and too cunning to be overly impressed by naive belief. Whenever you see a chat starting, buckle up. If you refer to Dracula being the work of an Irishman who never visited Transylvania, I get that it’s Bram Stoker without being told, thanks.
But I think, I could’ve used my time better. Here, the author mentions that this might be due to the fact that she was abandoned herself and wants to give all that love she could to her child which she didn’t receive from her birth mother.
What IS there, you ask? Sona S yes I liked this book.
The Witch of Portobello – Wikipedia
All of the chapters or interviews felt less like the people answering question or even speaking and more like them thinking. Coelho probably believes that every bruxw being has a divine essence that’s the same for everyone, because every single one of his POV characters has the same preachy voice explaining the same shitty philosophy in the same pompous manner.
How she ended up that way creates the intrigue sustaining the book. Preachy new age-y bullshit, with a distinct undertone of “I’m idealizing feminine qualities, so I can’t possibly be sexist” sexism. The “reveal” at the end was only surprising because it was dumb and unnecessary.
The central character is abandoned by her birth mother because the father was a foreigner gadje and later adopted by a wealthy Lebanese couple. Including the main character! The story is supposed to be the voices of different people, but the Catholic priest, the Lebanese mother, the year old restaurant owner, are all utterly indistinct. Views Read Edit View history. That is the central question of international bestselling author Paulo Coelho’s profound new work, The Witch of Portobello.
In his quest to turn his literary universe into a homogeneous mass of love-power 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? She has a contented life but brxa mind is not at ease. Thanks to this horrible novel, this is about all I can take of Coelho for the time being Being stubborn as I am, somehow managed to get through it and was left utterly dismayed and with a very bad taste in my mouth.
Refresh and try again. She goes into a London University to pursue Engineering at the age of 19 but it’s not what her heart wanted. I didn’t enjoy it or learn much from it. There are a few pages 1 or 2 that makes some sense, other than that, it’s completely nonsensical. If you feel like you have too many brain cells and would wish to destroy half of them, read this book.
I have read Veronica decides to die, Adultery, and Eleven minutes. Not only is it absolutely pointless and riddled with repeated themes and preachy tones, but it is also extremely boring. Want to Bruxq Currently Reading Read. Seriously, one of his characters lists four female archetypes that women supposedly follow, and although he calls them the witch, the virgin, the martyr ve the saint, portobell just that quote about how all roles for actresses are hookers, victims or doormats, with “bitch” thrown in for variety.
As a child, she shows a strong religious vocation and reports seeing angels and saints, which both impresses and worries her parents. Unless you are a fan of a unique sort of witches! I felt that all the characters had the same tone of voice and theory of thinking to the point where I was confused as to who was speaking.
