As usual it was philosophical like the alchemist. Whole book is about self realization experience of different people. I enjoyed reading it. It has just 284 pages so can easily finish in two days.

Paulo Coelho has written a semi-autobiographical book based on life in the hippie era. He writes with feeling as usual and we see gems of philosophy in the pages. Supposedly a 'Magic Bus' leaves Amsterdam and heads to Nepal! Paulo is on this bus with Karla, his new friend.When they reach Turkey, Paulo heads to find truths about life. I was impressed by the poem,
"There is no difference between the sea and the waves,
When a wave swells, it is made of water,
when it breaks against the sand, it is also made of the same water..." There are other such nuggets and each passenger in the bus has a different experience. All in all it makes for excellent reading.
