Présentation de l'éditeur

A powerful exploration of one man's battle with self-doubt and fear.
Why is it that we destroy the things we love most? This is the question Paulo Coelho faces in this touching story about his confrontation with his past. In The Valkyries, Paulo and his wife, Cristina, embark on a forty-day quest into the starkly beautiful and sometimes dangerous Mojave Desert, where they encounteer the Valkyries, strange warrior women who travel the desert on motorcycles.

A masterful blend of the exotic locales, dramatic adventure, and stark storytelling for which Coelho's fictional works are renowned, this true-life odyssey is at once a modern-day adventure story and a poignant message about letting go of the past and believing in the future.

Quatrième de couverture

A Magical Tale About Forgiving Our Past and Believing in Our Future

The enchanting, true story of The Valkyries begins in Rio de Janeiro when author Paulo Coelho gives his mysterious master J., the only manuscript for his book The Alchemist. Haunted by a devastating curse, Coelho confesses to J., "I′ve seen my dreams fall apart just when I seemed about to achieve them." In response, J. gives Coelho a daunting task: He must find and speak with his guardian angel. "The curse can be broken," he replies, "if you complete the task."

Rising to the challenge, Paulo and his wife, Cristina, drop everything, pack their bags, and take off on a forty day adventure into the starkly beautiful and sometimes dangerous Mojave Desert where they encounter more than they bargained for. A masterful blend of the exotic locales, dramatic adventure, and magical storytelling, for which Coelho′s fictional works are renowned, this true-life account is at once a modern-day adventure and a metaphysical odyssey.

An autobiographical trip story by Paulo Coelho on his way to meet his angel, very powerful. Great if you believe in angels, and twice as great if you also are about to handle a big crisis in your life !! ;-)

An Intriguing Quest for life's meaning 22 juin 2000
Par Judith E. Pavluvcik - Publié sur
Format: Broché
The Valkyries is a metaphysical tale, very much in the spirit of James Redfield, only this epic tale is authentic.
This is Paulo Coelho's astonishing true story of his encounter with darkness, his search for the light, and the seeking of his personal angel. He chronicles his journey from Brazil, with his wife Chris, and their 40-day sojourn in the Mojave Desert, seeking the Valkyries. The Valkyries were rumored to be able to speak and to see their angels. Having fought a battle with darkness, Paulo has redeemed his life and is a seeker of the light. Paulo was also told that "people wind up killing what they love most" as he seeks to rectify certain, if not all, areas of his life.
This book is journey of faith, of trust, of forgiveness, of love, of self-discovery, and of battling the darkness within ourselves, and wanting to change. As Paulo states, "Faith is a different conquest, and it requires daily combat in order to maintained." His faith is tested to the very end, as he seeks contact with his angels. His journey within transforms him as well as transforming his wife at the same time. Their two soul journeys will inspire you.
"We are responsible for everything that happens in this world. We are the warriors of the light. With the strength of our love and our will, we can change our destiny, as well as the destiny of many others." In this age of angel sightings, angel occurrences are happening with intense frequency. It is as if God is sending his messengers with a message and that message if one of love. The stories being written give hope to those in need of hope and bring home the message that there is another way - love.
"If on the other hand, we accept all that is wrong about us - and despite it, believe that we are desiring of a happy life - then we will have thrown open an immense window that will allow Love to enter. Little by little, our defects will disappear, because one who is happy can look at the world only with love - the force that regenerates everything that exists in the universe."
This is an amazing book, which will cause you to think and revaluate parts of your life. I read the book in one sitting and had to keep going with it till the very end. If you are on a spiritual journey or even on a transforming journey at this point in your life, this is one book that you will want to read. As Paulo says, "God is love, generosity and forgiveness; if we believe this, we will never allow our weakness to paralyze us." I highly recommend this book.

Excellent, his best book so far 2 août 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I have read other of Coehlo's books, ie the Alchemist, The Fifth Mountain and Brida, and I have foud the Valkyries, to be his best book! I couldn't put it down since I began reading it. It is so simple yet so deep! It is all so true, how Coehlo describes us destroying everything good that we have in our lives, because we are always too blind to see it. The most wonderful part is to realize that we must always choose love over anything else and that we must forgive others and ask for God's forgiveness. It is a book that helps you regain hope in life, love and God in this crazy world we are in now. With so much war, so much hatred, so much violence, so many killings, so much hunger! Well, we must believe in God's love and protection, believe in our guardian angel to guide us and to protect us always. And it is up to us to change this world!

Another intriguing work by Coelho 11 décembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book really helped me to see how there are forces at work in our lives that we do not know about. Coelho has made me believe through this simple story that God is still present with us everyday, and active in our lives. He is not religiously pushy, however, like some writers in this genre. He leaves a lot of room for the reader to make his own interpretation of what is presented, broadening the prospective audience. This simple story of Coelho and his wife's quest renewed my faith in a lot of things. I had mixed thoughts about reading a religiously focused book when I picked up The Alchemist a few months ago, but the message therein really helped me put a lot of things into perspective, and Valkyries was no different.

What you get outta this depends on where you are in your life and spirituality. 28 juillet 2007
Par Reading my way thru life - Publié sur
Format: Broché
There's a lot of wisdom and truth presented here in this book. The question is, will you or can you understand it? I admit that several places in the book, I would go back and have to reread something, and still not totally get it. But a little further and BAM! -This beautiful piece of writing would pop out and be clear as can be. I am thinking that what you get out of this book most likely depends on several things, like how open minded you are, where you are in your life and where you are spiritually. It's a metaphor people! (to those reviewers who didn't get it so they wrote negative things about it, which makes me think of how a lot of times we [some/most?] are quick to condemn that which we do not understand?) The things that you don't conciously understand, you most likely (hopefully anyway) sub-conciously get. Get it? - Course that may not be the case for all.

Book club choice? This book would make for interesting group discussion between the right people, -an open minded group who's not so quick to judge by skimming the surface. I think open discussions about this could bring a lot of hidden meanings out in the open because for example, one part that I didn't get could be clear as a bell to somebody else.

I loved this and am planning to read it again. And I feel sure that I'll probably read it several times throughout my life. That's the kind of book this is.

So, if you read it and don't understand, maybe it's not the right time for you? So many times, I have been drawn to exactly the books I needed for what I was going thru at that time. This proved that to me, once again.

Simple, But Not at All Bad 9 août 2003
Par Stephen K. - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This is my first Coelho book that I have read recommended to me by a friend. It is a simple book to read, so you'll get done with it fast. Although it is not the best book I have read, it is without a doubt, the most inspiring book.
This book is about Paulo trying to converse with his angel. He brings his wife, Chris, along so that he's not alone basically. But soon Chris starts getting more interested and wants to become more interactive, especially when Paulo discovers the Valkyries--women who ride on motorcycles and preach about angels. The Valkyries is just what Paulo needs because they are the ones that can help him see his angel.
This is a book where you need an open mind. It is a book that a fifth grader can read, but perhaps not understand as well as a high schooler might. Either way, this book is good and I would recommend it to those with open minds and who are in need of something settling to read. A simple book, but not bad at all.
