Written by Paulo Coelho, the book greatly surprised me. After the first few pages, I had to confirm I was reading nonfiction and not a novel of magical realism. It is nonfiction, but the stories he tells feel like magic at times. Coelho participated in the pilgrimage in a quest to find his sword—the ultimate accomplishment—as part of the initiation into a religious group called the Order of the RAM. Along the way, he meets and fights with his personal devil in the guise of a dog, encounters mysterious guides, supernatural beings, and is taught a series of "exercises" to reach deep inside his soul. In one of those exercises he sees when he will die. He experiences the occult, miracles, physical and spiritual tests, personal battles, life lessons, and the all-consuming power of agape love.
It's a fascinating book, albeit quite intense. Read it for spiritual insight and be prepared to (slightly) suspend your belief in reality.
I read The Pilgrimage more than once. The first time I read it was when I was traveling in Spain and Morocco. This is the type of books that feeds our souls. Though Paulo has other books perhaps more popular The Pilgrimage remains my favorite. It is more for mature readers. I recommend it to everyone who wants to add a bit food to our spiritual journey and pursue life with enthusiasm, wisdom and courage.
The Pilgrimage is about one mans journey to find himself through the excuse of finding his sword. At first, the main character had gone through a set of trails not specifically talked about in the book, to earn the right to have his sword. But because of his impatiance, he has to prove himself by taveling down the Road of Santiago. There, he meets his mentor who will teach him the practices that he has to use to find his sword. The main meat of the book is the main character on this journey. Whether he finds his sword or not will be up to you to find out.
To be honest, there were parts of this book that made it hard to read. Some parts just made you loes intrest. But to conteract that, there were parts where the words flowed naturally off of the page to make not reading on to the next chapter hard. The book teaches a lot about the human mind and how most people think and I found that interesting. I loved how it emphsized the importance of having mental toughness in life as that is truth.
I would recommend this book to anyone having trouble finding themselves. This book has a lot to do with that and may provide some answers for said person. Coming from a teenage male perspective, I feel like it can relate a bit to my group. Would read again in a few years.

It's not worth going into summarising the plethora of learning's as this would spoil the book and make this review unnecessarily long. Simply, anyone can extract much value from this book; I very, very much recommend you join Coelho on this particular journey.
For all religions, creeds, whatever ... Universal in concept.
