Eleven Minutes ( Story Of Prostitute) by Paulo Coelho


Eleven Minutes by Paulo Coelho

Bold subject…even bolder narration…still there is no object of obscenity in the whole book.

Eleven Minutes by Paulo Coelho sails smooth like a stream in plains, a candle in calm weather and a kite in favorable wind.

Since I was in search of better book to read. Then I came across this book of paulo Coelho.  It’s been a decade since this novel of Paulo Coelho, whose books are believed to have a life enhancing effect, was published and I think it is too late to write a review but I am still writing this because more than the name of the author, it is a good literary work that needs to be promoted and it is the responsibility of a voracious reader who comes across some real good work of words, to pass on the words of wisdom or advice to the the avid readers, the inquisitive minds that hunt for knowledge, worth exploring.


Eleven Minutes is a story of a prostitute (really…I don’t think so) or a dreamer (who dares to dream something unimaginable to people of her kind) or a believer (who never stopped believing she can achieve what she aspires for) or a learner (who welcomes new thoughts as one welcomes life), or I am not sure as she was everything for me…a mother…a teacher or a guide…a beautiful, vulnerable… sometimes helpless girl.
I won’t reveal the story as I don’t want you to miss the magic the story will spell around you and if you have already read it then there is no need either.
All I would say is read this book if you haven’t read it yet and discover the sacred love that is born and bred in the most ignoble place on the face of earth.
Paulo Coelho through the protagonist, a prostitute named Maria, conveys the message that no matter what you are and what circumstances you are into, dream your way through hard times without letting your hopes and endeavors die.
Take away from Eleven Minutes
Dreams do come true…live your dreams and endeavor to realize them.
