The most thought-provoking book I have ever read was ‘Pilgrim’, which is belles-lettres, written by Paulo Coelho. It is marvelous novel worth reading, because of large number of reasons. ‘Pilgrim’ is classic of present literature and should be read by everyone – with no exceptions.

The story is about a man who decides on trip to Santiago de Compostela with very mysterious guide. Our hero is told to do many strange things and tests which need diverse skills. Despite the plot is not complicated, it is extremely absorbing and unpredictable. The author had absolutely original concept and it makes this book so interesting, also for young people.

But what makes this book so universal? I think it is because of its realistic plot and natural characters – everybody can find in ‘Pilgrim’ part of himself. The main theme of this book is man mind and man as a part of the universe. It sounds rather elaborately, but in fact it is much more acceptable. After the first few pages, you feel that you won’t be able to finish it, but in spite of this you don’t stop. So that I have said that this book was incredibly absorbing. Each page helps us in understanding who we are and what are we looking for. After reading ‘Pilgrim’ reader will know about himself and his life much more then he could have excepted.

All in all, this book is not easy and its reading needs peace and concentration. But we can learn so much about our life, that in my opinion ‘Pilgrim’ is worth time and effort which we have to put in reading it. I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone, regardless of their age and sex.

Can somebody help me ? It's extremly important for me.
