‘Paulo Coelho represents the legend of the wise storyteller.’
Corriere della Sera, Italy
In 'The Fifth Mountain' Paulo Coelho takes us back to the 9th century, to the turbulent Middle East, where the prophet Elijah is struggling to keep his faith alive in a world of constant upheaval, tyrannical royalty and pagan gods.
Forced to flee his home and country, Elijah eventually finds refuge and love, only to have his dreams shattered once more. This is a powerful retelling of the story of a young man who has toface both the loss of his physical, earthly love and the ultimate trialof shaken faith – doubt about the very existence of God.
With his rare talent for bringing a story alive, Paulo Coelho turns this Biblical parable into an inspiring and moving story of how one man surmounts tragedy and comes to see it not as a punishment but as a challenge.
In the colourful and chaotic world of the Old Testament, the universal themes of how faith and love can overcome suffering are vividly evoked. This magical tale about keeping faith alive shows Paulo Coelho at his best.
“Coelho exhibits an amazing virtue of transparency that makes his writing like a path of energy that inadvertently leads readers to themselves, toward their mysterious and faraway souls.”
