Επιφανειακό βιβλιαράκι που αποσκοπεί στο να φιλοσοφήσει τα αυτονόητα και να ενθουσιάσει με δέος τα απαίδευτα.
Το είχα διαβάσει στην εφηβεία μου και μου άρεσε αρκετά. Είτε είχα πολύ χαμηλά στάνταρ τότε ή μάλλον σε τέτοιες ηλικίες απευθύνεται προς τέρψιν. ( )

Una valiosa lección de esperanza para el hombre contemporáneo. El profeta Elías recibe de Dios la orden de abandonar Israel. En un mundo regido por supersticiones, conflictos religio­sos y tradiciones profundamente arraigadas, el joven pro­feta deberá enfrentarse a una avalancha de acontecimien­tos que le conducirán a un definitivo cara a cara con Dios. En La Quinta Montaña, la historia de Elías se convierte así en una valiosa lección de esperanza para el hombre contem­poráneo, y nos plantea hasta qué punto podemos determinar nuestro destino.

At times The Fifth Mountain felt a little too parsonic, little more than an imaginative re-telling of a Hebrew-scriptural tradition. Yet it gained its own literary and spititual momentum late in the piece, and for that it merits a read. Not Coelho at his best, though. The characters too wooden, the plot a little unimaginative, the dialogue likewise. Sermonic, almost. But by no means a wasted read. ( )

Coellho exhibits an amazing virtue of transparency that makes his writing like a path of energy that inadvertently leads readers to themselves, towards their mysterious and faraway souls

Epigraph
And he said, Verily I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his own country.  But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land; But unto none of them was Elias sent, save unto Zarephath, a city of Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow.  -- Luke 4:24-26
