    Thank you, Mr Coelho. At a time when my parents and my son are dying, and can't accept love, help and support, this one paragraph in your Author's Note gave me joy and hope: "But ultimately there is no good reason for our suffering, for in every love lies the seed of our growth. The more we love, the closer we come to a spiritual experience. Those who are truly enlightened, those whose souls are illuminated by love, have been able to overcome all the inhibitions... They have been joyful — because Thank you, Mr Coelho.

They have been joyful — because those who love conquer the world and have no fear of loss. True love is an act of total surrender. "...One doesn't love in order to do what is good, or to help, or to protect someone. If we act that way, we are perceiving the other as an object, and we are seeing ourselves as wise and generous... To love is to be in communion with the other and to discover in that other the spark of God." You have chartered for me a path of sanity, serenity, and true generosity. I can only hope to be able to walk it!

    I have just experienced a wonderful and enlightening love story that has moved me deeply. Indeed, Paulo Coelho's "By The River Piedra I Sat Down And Wept" is a must read for people who have lost, found, or still seeking for love. I have made some references to this novel in some of my past blogs. But now, I am writing more about it on my personal realizations after experiencing this enigmatic literary work.

Indeed, Paulo Coelho's "By The River Piedra I Sat Down And Wept" is a must read for people who have lost, found, or still seeking for love. I have made some references to this novel in some of my past blogs. But now, I am writing more about it on my personal realizations after experiencing this enigmatic literary work. I have jotted down some lines from the book that struck me the most, and taken note of my insights. (1) But love is much like a dam:if you allow a tiny crack to form through which only a trickle of water can pass, that trickle will quickly bring down the whole stucture and soon no one will be able to control the force of the water. Me: Falling in love is a beautiful experience. Deciding to fall in love is the hard part. But this analogy of love and a dam, explains it quite well. Once you start having the slightest thought that maybe love is possible or start seeing a person in a different light, all other feelings and ideas will start to rush in. Then you feel afraid of what you have just realized and try to thrust it away. No escape. Your heart and mind fight it out. Still, it doesn't matter which ends up victorious, because from then on, you will never see things the same way again. (2) In real life, love has to be possible. Even if it is not returned right away, love can only survive when the hope exists that you will be able to win over the person you desire. Me: Love is forbearing. But sometimes the heart is impatient. This statement is still unclear to me. Maybe because, I have often easily given up in this quest for "winning over the person I desire". I guess this statement is experiential, only then will there be full understanding of it. (3) Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worst kind of suffering. Me: How would we know if it is time to move on or that it is still worth another try? I have seen a lot with this dilemma, both from movies and through acquaintances. And indeed, seeing them in that state where they have no idea which way to take is truly heart breaking. I have been in both situations. I have waited. I have forgotten. But by some cosmic conspiracy, somehow I still find myself wondering, what if I took the other path? Forgetting is like a point of no return. If you choose to forget and leave, then you must stand by your decision, no matter how difficult it promises to be. Only by then will you be able to move on. In waiting, the clincher would be how long should you wait, and do you really have something to wait for. Either way, you will find yourself hurting at one point in time. (4) What I remember is that love returned in the form of another man, new hopes and new dreams. Me: The bible says that love is constant and that love is forever. Poets reiterate this in their masterpieces. Hopeless romantics sing about it. Then if this be the case, I have no reason to believe that love ever fails. It just transforms. This should be able to keep the flame of hope of finding the love of our lives burning through and through. There you go. I am done with another book. A couple of weeks later, I would no longer fully remember what it was about or who the characters were. But somehow I would still recall the feelings I got as I was reading through it and my pot of insights has yet again been stirred and repleted. P.S. The female character is Pilar. She was the one telling the story. But the male character remained nameless. Hmm... Or did I just forget his name already? ;) (Wrote this review in 2004 right after reading the book.

    Maybe it was a poor translation, maybe I just didn’t understand all the references to Catholicism or maybe I am not ‘spiritual’ enough, but in my opinion this book is terrible. It reads like a childish parable/love-story that an 11 year-old would write. Nothing happens in this ‘follow-your-heart’ novel, except that a women meets up again with her childhood crush and falls for him again. Apparently she could only do this because she had let God into her heart, after many years of not doing so.

Apparently she could only do this because she had let God into her heart, after many years of not doing so. Ugh. Horribly preachy even for a Coelho book. The point of the story has the usual message of all his novels; the central character realises that she needs to ignore everyone else’s opinions and feelings and become more religious in order to be truely happy. However the unintended contradiction of this message seems to be that by getting ‘faith’ she is really just masking the true cause of her unhappiness by making her believe that her selfishness and self-obsession are actually OK. I'm guessing I missed the point entirely with this book, but unfortunately it comes across as so poor that I couldn't be bothered to find out.

    “To love is to lose control.” Hm, this is a strange and hard one to review. On the one hand, there is no plot, barely anything happens at all. Yet on the other the writing is so lyrical, so peaceful, and tackles such interesting and important topics that it kept me reading. Pilar is invited to a seminar by an old friend. Their reunion strikes a chord and changes them both. They travel together across parts of Spain and France, discussing life, love, faith and spirituality. A lot of the focus is o “To love is to lose control.” Hm, this is a strange and hard one to review. On the one hand, there is no plot, barely anything happens at all.

Their reunion strikes a chord and changes them both. They travel together across parts of Spain and France, discussing life, love, faith and spirituality. A lot of the focus is on Christian ideas, but there are also plenty of other forms of spirituality included. At times it really made me stop and think, and the writing took me away from myself and into another world, a simpler world where faith is easier and the people are kinder. Overall I did enjoy it, I liked some of the different ideas included - a major one being God portrayed as a woman, or ‘the mother'; a lot of interesting stuff. Reckon I’ll keep this one to reread someday as I’m sure there was plenty that I missed or went over my head. “Love can consign us to hell or to paradise, but it always takes us somewhere.” 3.5 stars

    MY FAVORITE LINES FROM THE BOOK: At some point, we have each said through our tears, “I’m suffering for a love that’s not worth it.” We suffer because we feel we are giving more than we receive. We suffer because our love is going unrecognized. We suffer because we are unable to impose our own rules. True love is an act of total surrender. You have to take risks. We will only understand the miracle of life fully when we allow the unexpected to happen. Every day, God gives us the sun - and also o MY FAVORITE LINES FROM THE BOOK: At some point, we have each said through our tears, “I’m suffering for a love that’s not worth it.” We suffer because we feel we are giving more than we receive. We suffer because our love is going unrecognized. We suffer because we are unable to impose our own rules. True love is an act of total surrender. You have to take risks. We will only understand the miracle of life fully when we allow the unexpected to happen. Every day, God gives us the sun - and also one moment in which we have the ability to change everything that makes us unhappy. Every day, we try to pretend that we haven’t perceived the moment, that it doesn’t exist – that today is the same as yesterday and will be the same as tomorrow. But if people really pay attention in their everyday lives, they will discover that magic moment. It may arrive in the instant when we are doing something mundane, like putting our front-door key in the lock; it may lie hidden in the quiet that follows the lunch hour or in the thousand and one things that all seems the same to us. But that moment exists – a moment when all the power of the stars becomes a part of us and enables us to perform miracles. I could have. What does this phrase mean? At any given moment in our lives, there are certain things that could have happened but didn’t. The magic moments go unrecognized, and then suddenly, the hand of destiny changes everything. If pain must come, may it come quickly. Because I have a life to live, and I need to live it in the best way possible. If he has to make a choice, may he make it now. Then I will either wait for him or forget him. Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worst kind of suffering. Dreams mean work.

    *takes deep breath* Okay , so I saw a GR update about this book and I was like yeah..!! I have read it and its a really good one but i couldnt remember the plot and everything. So I started searching for this book and for what it felt like a million years I found it and read it AGAIN. Then I mentally slapped my brain for not remembering this book, and my brain was like -'yeah..!! Theres only one explanation for not remembering it, that the aliens must have had abducted me and wiped my memory clean *takes deep breath* Okay , so I saw a GR update about this book and I was like yeah..!!

About the book, You know about those book where you dont have to know anything about the book or its story or its characters, you just have to dive in. This is one of those book. Its the kind of book you'd either Love or Hate, theres no in between. I Loved this book, I know some people hated it, maybe they didnt understand the whole concept( for lack of better word) but i adored it. It has so many good quotes, I have highlighted almost whole book and now my book looks like a rainbow. (Yes I use different color highlighters everytime). The book is about loss, seeking love, finding love around you, keeping your love, your beliefs. Yes many people can argue about somethings in this book and thats okay, everything has two sides, its upto you how you look at it. Even somethings left me questioning too but thats okay. Maybe we are allowed to have some doubts and questions. I dont know what else to say about this book, its just that you have to trust me, and just dive in. And i promise you won't come out empty hand, you'd either Learn or Understand or Find something, I can gurantee you that.

    This book wasn't even close to as good as The Alchemist, and it seems as though it was translated really poorly too.

It is a super short book, especially when considering the size of the font and the margins, and yet I felt like I was creeping through it. I finished it, as other reviewers have mentioned, solely for the sake of finishing it. Why do we do this to ourselves? Why can't I be more like Trish and just let sucky books go without having to finish them? Anyway, save yourself from the self-flagellation that will come when you don't feel like finishing it, and don't even start it.

    I opened this book with NO expectation's. Many people take Paulo Coelho's books with this expectations that it will be as good as The Alchemist is. But no book will ever be good as Alchemist is. So, for me this book was quite unexpected but in a good way. I have read many books of Paulo but this book was quite exception of Paulo's writing. It was desperate, Spiritual and so knowledgeable.

So, for me this book was quite unexpected but in a good way. I have read many books of Paulo but this book was quite exception of Paulo's writing. It was desperate, Spiritual and so knowledgeable. I quite learned about Christianity, Spirituality. Love and Decisions. “If pain must come, may it come quickly. Because I have a life to live, and I need to live it in the best way possible. If he has to make a choice, may he make it now. Then I will either wait for him or forget him.” And so the novel starts out. The most beautiful opening paragraph I’ve ever read in my life. And unless you are heartless or have never been in love, I don’t know how this wouldn’t at least rank somewhere on your list of most beautiful passages. “By the River Piedra I sat down and wept. There is a legend that everything falls into the waters of this river – leaves, insects, the feathers of bird – is transformed into the rocks that make the riverbed. If only I could tear out my heart and hurl it into the current, then my pain and longing would be over, and I could finally forget.” This book was told by the protagonist Pilar's POV, she took us from the streets of Zargoza to the mountains of France to the river of Piadera. For not believing in Love to falling in love. This book showed us different phases of a human's life to her journey to the life of spirituality. This book's main focus was on the female face of GOD. That women's have been degraded from the early era to now, that Male God's have been more in light then women's. This book told us so many tales and knowledge about Virgin Mary. Which for me was quite interesting. As a Muslim, after Islam the most interesting is Christianity. and this book provide alot of it. “In real life, love has to be possible. Even if it is not returned right away, love can only survive when the hope exists that you will be able to win over the person you desire.” By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept carries a spiritual theme, as he touches quite a bit on the mystical nature of God. In this particular piece, he focuses on the young man’s belief in a feminine God that grants him the power to heal. and then their is Pilar, Pilar struggles to accept and embrace her feelings for him. He struggles to reconcile his love for the seminary, the gifts he has been given and the love he has held onto for so many years. While the beauty of their love story as it unfolds kept me wanting more, I found myself disappointed, especially toward the end when I didn’t feel the same intensity of emotions as I did with the opening paragraphs. “But love is much like a dam; if you allow a tiny crack to form through which only a trickle of water can pass, that trickle will quickly bring down the whole structure and soon no one will be able to control the force of the current.” Nonetheless, I enjoyed this book. I have two more books by Coelho that I want to read. And if you know me, you’ll know that there are VERY few authors from whom I’ve read more than one book. I must really like this guy. “That is why I write - to try to turn sadness into longing, solitude into remembrance.”

    A very, intense, emotional read. A deviation from Cuelho's usual themes in his books.

The most beautiful opening paragraph I’ve ever read in my life. And unless you are heartless or have never been in love, I don’t know how this wouldn’t at least rank somewhere on your list of most beautiful passages. By The River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept was written by Paulo Coelho. He is best known for writing The Alchemist which just so happens to be my least favorite of the three books I’ve read by him. My introduction to Coehlo was The Zahir which was, like the other two I read, a beautiful story of love. Neither of those however prepared me for the beauty I would find in that very first paragraph of the novel. It then continues: By the River Piedra I sat down and wept. The winter air chills the tears on my cheeks, and my tears fall into the cold waters that course past me. Somewhere this river joins another, then another, until – far from my heart and sight – all of them merge with the sea." A couple pages later the protagonist, Pilar, takes us back to the beginning to tell the story of how she ended up weeping for this young man. They seemed to have always loved each other, even as childhood friends. However, they grew up and took separate paths in life. He chose to leave their small town to learn about the world (a theme present in both The Alchemist and The Zahir) while she chose to take the prescribed path of enrolling in a nearby university. They kept in touch throughout his travels, and one day he invited Pilar to hear him give a lecture in Madrid. The story is a whirlwind from here. Pilar struggles to accept and embrace her feelings for him. He struggles to reconcile his love for the seminary, the gifts he has been given and the love he has held onto for so many years. While the beauty of their love story as it unfolds kept me wanting more, I found myself disappointed, especially toward the end when I didn’t feel the same intensity of emotions as I did with the opening paragraphs. Like the other Coelho books I’ve read, By The River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept carries a spiritual theme, as he touches quite a bit on the mystical nature of God. In this particular piece, he focuses on the young man’s belief in a feminine God that grants him the power to heal. For some this may be an appealing aspect of Coehlo’s writings, but it tends to throw me off. It gives me some of the same vibes that the Celestine Prophecy gave me, which is more eerie than anything else. Nonetheless, I enjoyed this book. I have two more books by Coelho that I want to read. And if you know me, you’ll know that there are VERY few authors from whom I’ve read more than one book. I must really like this guy.

I finally finished it for the sake of finishing it. The author tried to throw in a few themes from The Alchemist, and there are maybe a few good ideas in here, but nothing good enough to waste your time reading an entire book to glean some tidbits. Note: A lot of reviewers on Amazon said they didn't like the fact that the book delved so much into religion, but I didn't mind that.

    Her şeyden önce belirtmeliyim ki, kitabın içindeki din olgusunun beni beklediğim kadar sıkmamış olması bir mucizeydi. Eser genel anlamda hayat-aşk-inanç üçgeni ve ilgisi üzerine kuruluydu. Kendine aynı anda hem çok sınırlı, hem de oldukça geniş bir alan yaratan yazar, yine benim gibi bir okurunu yüz üstü bırakmadı. Nadir yerlerde tasavvuf çevresinde şekillenen edebiyatını gereksiz değil ama “azaltılabilir” buldum ancak bu yine de kitabı sevmeme engel olamadı.

Öneri konusundaki tek duraksamam ise tasavvufi yanı hakkında olacaktır.

    This is another book of Coelho which couldn't give me satisfaction as what The Alchemist does. I learn a lot from The Alchemist. However, it still a nice one. It gives proof that Coelho has a deep knowledge and skills about diverse religions, although it is clear that that He has more about Christianity. However, it might be hard for those non-Christianity readers when they read this book (this is only a guess). Above all, I do believe that GOD has feminine face. Why I can say that?

Well, we are, humans, were created through GOD's image. And I believe that each of us has both, feminine and masculine factors. It just a matter of in what context we put ourselves. I love the way Coelho says in this book, that every religions put different names for GOD. Thus, every religion are good. Unfortunately, I still can't find the right quotation of it. Last, I do feel grateful for Coelho. He reminds me to keep on believing GOD's will in my life. To not easily give up, since there always be a rainbow after rain...

    Ok where do I start. Personally for me, whenever you mix religion with a special type of philosophy I get this sense as if someone is calling my name. This book called my name. The character Pilar reflects us all in a way. The man in the story (completely nameless) has loved ever since they were little. They go about roaming in the street for a vacation, but her religion takes a whole different turn. He guides her through life in a span of a week. Thats pretty cool. They keep mentioning 'Her'.

As is the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus and mother to all. What kept me reading was how they discussed god consisting of both male and female. God has a face of a woman and a man. I know, shocking... this is just a VERY brief summary to what the book has to offer. Coelho never disappoints. (Except for The Spy, I'm not really sure what he was thinking.)

    في البدايه تجد المقدمه العربيه بقلم باولو كويلو تتحدث عن احد القصصه الموروثه بالعلم الصوفي والروايه كلها تتحدث عن نفس فكره التصوف الا وهو حب الاله بطريقه مسيحيه حب المسيح وحب مريم العذراء نسير معا مع بيلار وصديق طفولتها الى رحله البحث عن الذات , واعاده ايمانهما لضحض التناقضات واختبار مشاعرهما المساله هنا مساله الدروب المختلفه التي يسلكها الفرد لتحديد مصيره هل سعينا بالارض مجدا اما لا؟ هل نحن سعداء فيه ام لا؟ هل هناك شيئا ندمنا عليه ام لا؟ اسئله ينسى الانسان ان يطرحها على نفسه في مسيرته

    ضميري يمنعني غالبا من أن أبدأ كتابا ولا أنهيه ! كويلو حبيب الجماهير .. :/ الرواية فقيرة ، من زاوية الحب فالقصة بسيطة ولا تصلح قصة غرام . أما من زاوية الإيمان ومعرفة الله فالرواية أتت بتساؤلات قد يطرحها الملحد أو ضعيف الإيمان، ثم ماذا بعد أين الأجوبة ؟؟! ------ ربما هي آخر رواية أقرأها لباولو ... فالحياة أقصر من أن نقرأ كتبا لا تضيف إلى إيماننا وعواطفنا وحبنا شيئا يذكر.

    Este libro me costó mucho leerlo. Me parecó muy aburrido.
