By The River Piedra I Sat Down And Wept Review
Coelho wants to tell us that around us a lifetime to work miracles, some signs of trying to show us the right way, but many They do not notice it, do not believe in miracles in God. The book can be traced to an interesting idea that God speaks all languages, that every religion has a right to exist. And not necessarily to perform some traditional religious practices in order to come to God. God lives in every human heart, and believing and not believing, and only the heart of the decision is important and necessary.
No rights will be those who think that Coelho wants to impose the reader some religion, no! His mind easily and naturally. He sends us through his senses a feeling of love. It opens people’s eyes to their fears
