Published in over 100 countries, translated into 42 different languages, with over 21 million copies of his books sold internationally, Paulo Coelho can truly claim to be one of the most popular writers in the world.

The Independent on Sunday has called him a ‘publishing phenomenon’.

Paulo’s writing is a visionary blend of spirituality, magical realism and folklore. His stories are simple and direct, yet they have the power to change lives and inspire you with the courage to follow your dreams......
His fifth novel, The Fifth Mountain, is set in the 9th century BC. Elijah is a young man struggling to maintain his sanity amidst a chaotic world of tyranny and war. Forced to flee his home, then choose between his newfound love and security and his overwhelming sense of duty, this is a moving and inspiring story about how we can transcend even the most terrible ordeals by keeping faith and love alive.

Review:

‘His books have and a life-enhancing impact on millions of people’
The Times

‘His writing is like a path of energy that inadvertently leads readers to themselves, toward their mysterious and faraway souls.’
Figaro Litteraire, France

‘Paulo Coelho represents the legend of the wise storyteller.’
Corriere della Sera, Italy

From the Back Cover:

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.”
LE FIGARO, FRANCE

“Paulo Coelho represents the legend of the wise storyteller.”
CORRIERE DELLA SERA, ITALY

“His magic irradiates, and after reading his books one feels happy.”
EL ESPECTADOR, COLUMBIA
