Book Description

April 2 2013

The latest novel from the #1 internationally best-selling author of The Alchemist.

There is nothing wrong with anxiety.
Although we cannot control God’s time, it is part of the human condition to want to receive the thing we are waiting for as quickly as possible.
Or to drive away whatever is causing our fear. . . .
Anxiety was born in the very same moment as mankind. And since we will never be able to master it, we will have to learn to live with it—just as we have learned to live with storms.

July 14, 1099. Jerusalem awaits the invasion of the crusaders who have surrounded the city’s gates. There, inside the ancient city’s walls, men and women of every age and every faith have gathered to hear the wise words of a mysterious man known only as the Copt. He has summoned the townspeople to address their fears with truth: 

“Tomorrow, harmony will become discord. Joy will be replaced by grief. Peace will give way to war. . . . None of us can know what tomorrow will hold, because each day has its good and its bad moments. So, when you ask your questions, forget about the troops outside and the fear inside. Our task is not to leave a record of what happened on this date for those who will inherit the Earth; history will take care of that. Therefore, we will speak about our daily lives, about the difficulties we have had to face.” 

The people begin with questions about defeat, struggle, and the nature of their enemies; they contemplate the will to change and the virtues of loyalty and solitude; and they ultimately turn to questions of beauty, love, wisdom, sex, elegance, and what the future holds. “What is success?” poses the Copt. “It is being able to go to bed each night with your soul at peace.” 
 
*  *  *
 
Now, these many centuries later, the wise man’s answers are a record of the human values that have endured throughout time. And, in Paulo Coelho’s hands, The Manuscript Found in Accra reveals that who we are, what we fear, and what we hope for the future come from the knowledge and belief that can be found within us, and not from the adversity that surrounds us.

5.0 out of 5 stars :D back to the beginning! May 14 2013
Format:Hardcover
We live in a very changing world, and "Manuscript found in Accra" just goes back to the beginning. I really appreciated that while I was reading, and I felt again that magic, like when I was 16 and I read "The Alchemist". That magic is exactly what makes books great. And this new book makes you think about some of the most basic things of your life and your world. It is original but structured, easy to read and inspiring. As Paulo Coelho usually does, the new book is not very long, but it's precise and intense, and it just gets to the point. Because it's easy to read, I would recommend read it even twice! Some quotes and some sentences are so thoughtful that I would say that the whole book requires re-reading.
Indeed, the plot, the quotes, the philosophy behind it... everything makes it just simple but at the same time magnificent. I couldn't stop reading. It was just pure wisdom. Highly recommended.

Quite a interesting read. I first found this via an audio book which I found quite compelling listening to the audio voice. I bought the book to review portions of the book that i found most interesting during the audio play.
