Having sold over 165 million copies of 30 books, Paulo Coelho is one of the best-selling authors of all time. His works have been translated into 80 languages and published in more than 150 countries around the world. THE PILGRIM tells the amazing and true journey of Paulo Coelho's life that turned him into a writer of tales millions of people all over the world enjoy. The main source of inspiration for Paulo Coelho's work is his own life. The author of 'The Pilgrimage' and 'The Alchemist' is, no doubt, a celebrity, but only few know that the story of his life is even better than fiction. Paulo flirted with death, escaped from madness, experimented with drugs, overcame torture, suffered and smiled for love, made Rock and Roll History in Brazil, but never gave up on his biggest dream: to triumph as a writer.Written by
Paulo left out a LOT of the story. If this is his "best story" then I don't want to read the worst.
There's nothing about the origin of his religious fanaticism, his mysticism, his interest in magic, or any time spent to tell you about his life between his attempt at suicide and his trip to Amsterdam. At least while I could stand to watch it.
How did he get to be rich? How did he make his mark in the music industry? Why is he interested in the dark or at least occult side of Catholicism? We aren't told.
How does he meet Chris? What does she find attractive about him?
We're just kind of thrust into this weird story and left to figure things out with many of the pieces missing. Much like his books.
