There is enough interest in angels to ensure this peculiar little book a significant audience. It traces a spiritual journey of sorts, stereotypically cast as a journey into the desert, that embodies a New Age conception of liberation as liberation from the past in confrontation with oneself. The "ritual that demolishes rituals," which is the climax of the book, is all done with mirrors. As Simone de Beauvoir would note, the "mirrors" are women--and that calls into question both the "newness" of the story and the "age" it heralds. But it is a strange tale many will find compelling. Steve Schroeder --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
"A book that delights, fascinates, frightens, and enlightens all at once... A delightful read that leaves you pondering eternal truths long after you put it down." -- "NAPRA Review" "Coelho's gripping tale of his adventures...reads like a suspense novel." -- "San Mateo Times"
