Paulo Coelho- “Zahir”

today 20.04.2011

“Zahir” is the last book i read these days. To be honest I was quite skeptic about Paulo Coelho novels,they were just too popular and someone may say that they are just the new mania of the girls because if you ask a random woman whether she has read something from the popular Brazilian author her answer will be for sure “yes I have”.But lead by interest I decided to read the book which made Paulo the most famous author in the world -“The Al chemic”.The story grab me from the first sentence and from then on I continued to adore hi novels.

Zahir comes from Arabic,it means something like obsessiveness,which could drive you to madness if you don’t find way to release your mind and soul from it.The book tells the story of a man,whose wife try to save their love by making her popular and rich husband to leave his comfortable life in search of his old self ,capable of loving  to the limit. Its a beautiful story in which nothing is not saved from  the reader,you can find not so nice scenes in which things for which no one will ever dare to speak are shown in very elegant way.Reading this book everyone may find himself in some of the characters,but even if you don’t  associate yourself with them,there is no way not to find the wisdom  in every sentence or situation.You can find old quotes in every chapter ,you will dive in a very realistic world of love and mystery.The story has some not very realistic features like a man able to hear voices and to predict the future,but exactly these strange things makes even the grater skeptic more interested in the further development of the story .

And at the end i would like to say that I truly believe that everybody has a zahir deep inside his soul,there is no person in the world who hasn’t been in love with someone who he/she cant erase from his thought,and if you are one of these people share your personal story,like the author calls it, and discover again your love or just clear the way for a new one.


About me


This is my first blog and I am not very sure how it should look like and what will be interesting to share with other people.I think that first of all I should say something about myself,actually there isn’t a lot to tell but never mind . 🙂 About me,I am first year student at the University of National and Word Economy in Sofia,Bulgaria.I have the opportunity to study in probably the most prestigious specialty at the university,the thing i appreciate the most until now is the fact that we study every subject at English,the world’s  most popular language.Before coming to the university i graduated 56th high school in the district of Lulin,well this not the most famous and good school in the country but i really liked it,my teachers were so good and they really act like our friends .And thats all about my education,nothing impressive unfortunately,but there is still time for me to change this fact :). About the things i have worked,well they dont have nothing to do with economy ,but as i said life is in front of me .And as we speak for the future my wish is to graduate the university successfully and if i have the luck to find enough financial resources i would like to take master degree at some foreigner university . And last but not least about my hobbies,to be honest i don’t think i have hobby but if reading books and mountain walks count as hobbies yes i have hobby 🙂 .
