    Hippie by Paulo Coelho (Alfred A. Knopf 2018) (Fiction). During the Sixties, hippies traveled, whether by thumb, by foot, or by their wits. The most coveted trip of the Sixties was the fabled Hippie Trail, which was an overland trek from Europe to South Asia through Iran, Afghanistan, ...

    This review is for the audio version. The narrator of the audiobook is uninspired and uninspiring; the characters are of different ages and backgrounds and nationalities but they somehow all sound the same. An actual memoir might have been interesting, but that's not what this is. "H...

    He was on a journey, met Karla who loved reading The Lord of the Rings by Tolkien, loved and watched 2001: A Space Odyssey, out in the cinema at that time, and she loved this Brazilian man she met. Together they went upon a journey of self-discovery, and all the hippie thing entailed a...

    I love Paulo Coelho's lyrical narrative style. He paints such evocative pictures and has such a marvelous fluency with language. I was intrigued by this title and the opportunity to learn more directly about his life, but found the format of this one to be a little too free-flowingly 1...

    This autobiographical book, told in third person, is basically the story of man's bus trip from Amsterdam to Istanbul in the '60s. It seemed that he was pulling up all his memories of that time and writing them down whether they fit into a story or not. Mia's Farrow's love life, for ex...

    Hippie (2018) by Paulo Coelho is loosely based on his personal experiences in the 1960s and 1970s as a hippie and as an explorer seeking a greater, more esoteric knowledge. In an interview, Paulo once said, ?Coincidence is the language of the stars,? and that?s a great summar...

    I loved The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho and was hoping his new book would feel as important. In Hippie, Paulo Coelho writes a story based on his own life experiences, his relationships, political views and personal values, and his adventures of travel and terror of kidnapping. Throughout...

    Paulo Coelho is undoubtedly an exceptional writer. Hippie is a half autobiographical book reflecting the writer's experience. I have always loved Paulo Coelho's writing style which is extremely lyrical and charismatic. He invokes such evocative images in one's mind and has a powerful f...

    I don't know why I keep on doing this to myself - Paulo Cohelo had little to offer when I first across "The Alchemist", 12 years ago, and he has little to offer today. A principal cause of annoyance was the subject itself: I have little patience for the hippies' denouncement of all sem...

    OK, so I'm a fairly big Paulo Coelho fan. I loved The Alchemist and several of his other writings. His prose is lyrical and thought provoking and I just love that it's like nothing else I've ever read, no matter what the subject. I went into this with two thoughts in my mind: 1. Th...

    Karla and Paulo are two twenty somethings who meet in Amsterdam and travel together. They do not meet until about the 25% point in the book, and but then I was already bored by these vapid people. I lived through this period of time and, looking back on it, the hippies actually were pr...

    Classic Coelho! This was a trip deep into a period that has a multitude of layers. Coelho captures the era in vivid detail, as he experienced it. A must-read for anyone curious or simply interested in the 60s and the Hippie movement, politics, war, and the lives that made and changed h...

    I won this book in a giveaway, very excited to read it the moment it arrived in the mail. I could begin to see the shape of The Alchemist (one of my favorites) take form along Paulo?s journey. I?ve read a few of his books before this and found them to be powerful, Hippie does n...

    Travel the world like a hippie I'm not sure what to make of this. It's a fascinating travel guide on the one hand and we get to see and experience some wonderful places but as a memoir I got a bit lost as it reads like a gap year diary going from one thought to another with l...

    Unlike most of the people on the planet, I hadn't read a Coelho book before this one, so I'm just going to review it on its own merits. And I just wanna say -- God bless his wife. It's not every woman who can support her husband as he pens a nostalgic and personal story about his exper...

    I have read two other Coelho books and was spiritually influenced by both. Both were full of wisdom and abstract concepts. Loved them both (The Alchemist and Manuscript Found in Accra). To me this book beat them both. Why? It is the most autobiographical book written by Coelho and i...

    *2.5/5 stars Perhaps I had just finished Murakami's "Norwegian Wood," but this book's prose felt flat. There were definitely good parts where the writing seemed alive, such as the house of the rising sun part, Marie's LSD trip, and the ending talk with Karla, but other than that, t...

    "Then seek the Truth. Seek always to be on its side, even when it brings you pain. There are times when the Truth goes quiet for long stretches, or when it doesn?t tell you what you want to hear." Much like the character who goes on a journey hoping to find something different, yo...

    Paulo Coelho is an excellent writer for sure, and apparently this is a half autobiographical book from his side but i feel like for some reason it's left in the middle. We read about the journey of Karla and Paulo, how the relationship is growing and turning into something else. Toward...

    I really enjoyed listening to the audio book of Hippie, it had the feel of sitting with an older person and listening to them tell you about their adventurous younger days in the 60s and 70s. Paulo changed the names and order of events as they occurred to keep the privacy of the peop...

    To be frank, I was really surprised when I realized how much I like this book. I mean, we use ''hippie'' as an insult all the time, it's become an everyday chore at this point. But as an autobiography, it's one of the most authentic books I've ever read. I'll admit that this book ...
