Linear, boring and simple novel by Paulo Coelho.
The uninteresting story goes over few anticlimax-climax cycles that make you wonder if someone changed your bookmark and you are reading that fragment for the second time.
The excuse: it is a fairy-tale in its form. However nothing justifies the lack of interest in its content.
The philosophical wannabe morals do not make any sense but to desperately hold a story that collapses in every page.
Do not waste your time.
