In his most personal novel to date, Paulo Coelho confronts a grave crisis of faith.
On a journey to revitalise his energy and passion he meets Hilal. A gifted young violinist, she is the woman Paulo loved five hundred years before - and the woman he betrayed in an act of terrible cowardice, the consequences of which still echo through the centuries.
But now they have the chance to take a mystical voyage through time and space, travelling a path that teaches love, forgiveness, and the courage to overcome life's challenges. Beautiful and inspiring, Aleph invites us to consider our own personal journeys: Are we where we want to be, doing what we want to do?

Comments about Aleph:
I just could not put this book down.. Even took it to the gym(read it while on the treadmill)..
Coelho definitely makes you believe there is more to life than just our everyday routine. Good book to escape from reality and think more about life and explore your inner-self. Its not a philosophical book but then sure tells you a story and makes you look at things differently.
I marked few lines on "travel" and "love".. Give it try and see whats in it for you !!
