Aleph by Paulo Coelho

This is a very vivid and frank narration of Paulo’s Trans-Siberian journey. A journey he courageously embarked to discover himself, to strengthen his faith and enhance his spiritual growth.

Paulo experiences the Aleph Point. He sees haunting images of the girl he loved but failed to save 500 years ago. He goes through all the lives he had lived - including the present and the future.
