Paulo Coelho × O Aluimista BOOK

Paulo Coelho's masterpiece tells the mystical story of Santiago an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in sear My heart and I chatted and we agreed this book was short My heart thinks it was also stupid and after spending some time talking to the wind I came to agree with my heart Yet after beginning the journey with this book and despite the words of my heart something impelled me to continue Surely it had something to teach me? The book had a lovely cover made of nicely textured stock that felt good in my hands It offered the added efficiency of a fold over flap something that publishers should make an effort to do as it makes the use of a bookmark superfluous But I suppose you need the collateral of winning the Guinness World Record for most translated book by a living author and selling than 65 million copies in than 150 countries as one of the best selling books in history to get that treatment my heart cries In my country we have an expression one should not judge a book by its cover In this case this is especially true The prose turned out to be not nearly as nicely textured That is irony This book knows not of irony Still though I needed to complete my journey My heart tugged on my sleeveAs I continued my journey I found that the text inside was set in a pleasing font I could find no typos which are always a portent of doom So I kept going I found the words that the font expressed were simple and easy to read As I read them before falling to sleep each night they neither challenged me nor troubled my dreams Many people I believe enjoy this in a book in the same way that they enjoy Hostess Twinkies They are filled up with calories which causes their bodies to believe that they have been fed a nutritious meal when in fact their brains are lulled into sheep like somnambulism They grow fat and stupider under the illusion that they have received nutrition without ever experiencing the pain of having to cook and possibly work up a sweat or burn one's fingersI wondered if this book was possibly dangerous I wondered what kind of people would be deluded into thinking within the guise of a poorly written but deviously well conceived parable that this book's philosophy was in fact Deep and Meaningful Truth This book I felt was perhaps insidiously evil a force with which I needed to do battle I did not know which weapon to use as irony appears to be rendered completely ineffective within a 3 metre radius of this book Still irony and a love of absurdity hovered around me as I searched for the true meaning in this book and why it appears to offer a powerful message to so manyI consulted the Oracle known across all the lands by many names She appeared to me in the form of Wikipedia ueen of All The People's Knowledge Now there's an alchemist for you ueen Wiki can turn knowledge into nonsense and then back again before your very eyes The perfect Oracle for this bookueen Wiki turned out to be very entertaining and illuminating in this case I learned that Joe Jonas and Russell Crowe loved this book I glommed on to this as an omen that absurdity was lurking close I interpreted it as a sign that I must continue Again I was struck by the irony of that but turning back to the book this fleeting insight that might have had a grain of real value was immediately suelched I sipped some sweet tea from a crystal goblet and plodded on through the desert of thought that is this bookThis I felt was the lesson to be learned in the Middle of the Centre of the Soul of the World where blank eyed acolytes are led like sheep? hmmm to unuestioningly accept and proclaim as truth the vacuous platitudes spouted by crystal wearing self appointed mystics psychics tarot card readers numerologists motivational speakers and this author irony is dead Absurdity goes unrecognized Skepticism is turned back at the gates by ill formed philosophies based on the unwavering power of evangelical groupthink and our species' rather fascinating susceptibility to cognitive bias or errors in thinking that cause us to believe as truth that which can actually be scientifically validated as falseThis book makes a mockery of spirituality and the search for truth and meaning under the guise of the easy anxiety uelling New Age philosophies that spoon feed the stupid with Twitter sized bites of nonsense Beliefs like good things happen to good people All is right in the end If it's not right it's not the end God doesn't give you anything you can't handle To be shelved between this and this to gather dust and never to be read again Do not trade or give away you'll just be spreading the bullshitMy heart will go on
