So, why can't I get into this book? I've heard so many people rave about it and about other books by the author.

I've started it about 5 times now and am still on about page 20. (he just sold his flock of sheep to go to Egpyt).

I don't mind spoilers. I just can't seem to engage. Is it just me? Do I just need the distraction of light fiction right now??

Me: Finding my Sunlight
Him: Traitor in my Foxhole
Let go or get dragged.

When it comes to Paulo Coelho either you love his stuff or you don't. I personally do but I have several friends who don't ever seem to get pass the chapter 1 of any of his books

Real love is a CHOICE, NOT a feeling...
