What exactly is fame? Is fame really worth losing your soul over? I for one believe fame is a tool that drives two sides of humanity apart and that it's not worth of losing your soul over, for five minutes of fame that can get as easily taken away from you as they are given. But still some people desire fame and lust for fame, for they don't know other, and they don't see a much bigger picture that's locked away behind perverse doors of infamous entertainment industry. This book deals with such perspective of things, traps that are kept hidden far away from the naked and gullible eye, and it's that what makes this book so special and a truly worthy read worth remembering for many generations to come.

Casual fans of The Alchemist might want to give this one a miss; but if you have read all of Coelho's other books and love his voice, then you will be glad of the chance to indulge. ( )

I really thought Paulo Coelho to be one of my favourite authors, but I actually haven't enjoyed many of his books apart from The Alchemist and Veronika Decides to Die. I think he's a bit too philosophical for my taste. ( )
