The author of novels such as The Alchemist and Veronika Decides To Die , Paulo Coelho offer glimpses of magic in the greatest, smallest and simplest things in Like the Flowing River through a collection of anecdotes, reflections, thoughts and stories. Some chapters are very short, merely a few paragraphs. Finishing those chapters may leave you feeling empty — as if a story is suddenly cut short half-way through. Yet as you let the minimal words sink in, you realise you were meant to fill in the empty spaces yourself — with your own thoughts, your own reflections, meanings and dreams. In My Funeral and Living Your Own Legend , he reminds us of the ever-present entity that is Death and how, despite the fear that comes hand in hand with our sense of mortality, we should not fear something inevitable, something we cannot control. Like the Flowing River reminds us to dream — no matter how big, no matter how absurd.

This was on the first page of this short story collection so I chose to include it in my review because I liked it. The preface to this book describes a conversation with his mother about wanting to become a writer. A conversation which made me smile when I read it. Each story has a different message or theme hidden in it somewhere and each one is special in its own way.
