This book was unexpectedly good. It was about a battle between good and evil. It is obviously a cliché to write about good vs evil but I can't get enough of these stories. Is it ever enough to get reassurance again and again that good exists despite all the evil prevailing in this world?
This book tells us that there is no answer about whether humans are good or bad, but instead it is a matter of individual choice. It's a matter of self control. This is something we all struggle with at some point in life. Sometimes it comes to us in such a simple form that we rarely stop to think whether it is evil or good.
I'm not a fan of Paulo Coelho’s writing. There isn't anything great about this book either. This is just a simple book with a simple question that is supposed to ignite discussion among the readers: are humans inherently evil or good?
My rating: 3.5
This was the last book that was left for me to read, of the trilogy 'On the seventh day', which I just finished yesterday.
My favorite of the series would be #DevilandMissPrym hands down, which is
followed by 'Veronica decides to die'.
Tbh,this is the book I liked the least from the series and from all of the Paulo Coelho books I read.
The book said in the beginning that it was a book about forgiveness, tbh I didn't find any topic of forgiveness here.
I wanted to buy the book,but I am kinda glad I read the epub first. I am sorry,if you liked the book,do tell me which part you liked & why.
"In the first place, you shouldn't believe in promises. The world is full of them: promises of riches, of eternal salvation, of infinite love. Some people think they can promise anything, others accept whatever seems to guarantee better days ahead, as, I suspect, is your case. Those who make promises they don't keep end up powerless and frustrated, and exactly the same fate awaits those who believe those promises." #DevilAndMissPrym#PauloCoelho
