1 thought on “Waiting Is Painful”

  1. Years and years ago, I read Coelho in Portuguese and thought ‘Meh.’ About a decade ago, give or take, a Polish woman gushed about how The Alchemist was great and I had to read it. She gave me an English translation. Read it. ‘Meh’ again.

    I suppose I’m glad for Mr Coelho’s success — keeps him off the streets and all — but his writings do not impress me. Maybe I am missing something, but I live quite happily missing it.
