About: A Magical Tale About Forgiving Our Past and Believing in Our Future. The enchanting, true story of The Valkyries begins in Rio de Janeiro when author Paulo Coelho gives his mysterious master J., the only manuscript for his book The Alchemist. Haunted by a devastating curse, Coelho confesses to J., "I've seen my dreams fall apart just when I seemed about to achieve them." In response, J. gives Coelho a daunting task: He must find and speak with his guardian angel. "The curse can be broken," he replies, "if you complete the task."
Rising to the challenge, Paulo and his wife, Cristina, drop everything, pack their bags, and take off on a forty day adventure into the starkly beautiful and sometimes dangerous Mojave Desert 執here they encounter more than they bargained for. A masterful blend of the exotic locales, dramatic adventure, and magical storytelling, for which Coelho's fictional works are renowned, this true–life account is at once a modern–day adventure and a metaphysical odyssey.
Review: The Valkyries is a book I really wanted to read when I heard it published at Greek, but after I read it I realized that it had been published some years ago in English and I was really disappointed because I thought that it was the new book of Paulo Coelho.. Anyway about the book now.. I really liked it, I always like Coelho's books, i've read all of them (the ones at Greek at least). I have to admit that the last ones were a little bit too much for me, but it's Coelho I can not stop reading his books! Valkyries is a book about a trip he does with his wife and his quest to see his angel, if you have read his other books you easily understand this book, but if it is your first you will find many things odd because there is no explanation. To sum up I really enjoyed the book, it was a fast read, I totally recommend it.
