From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This book is a story about Maria, a young girl who's really not settle for being just ordinary country girl.
Her jouney begins when one day she went for vacation to Rio Da Janero wow, she live in the same country as Coelho!!
Her life changed on the day she accept the offer. And from the very begining until the end of the book readers could see how life can turn out very unexpectedly.
You think you coul Coelho Definately, knows about life! You think you could figure out about everything but actually you cannot control your own destiny.
After feeling betrayed by her first love Maria decided not to have room for love in her live. However, her life change after meeting the so-not-like-Switserland man painter, name Ralf.
Ralf made her questioning what she really want out of life, and explore the pain of being in love, the kind of emotion which she tried to avoid since long time ago.
Discovering Ralf makes Maria discovering about herself. Coelo did a very find for readears to reflect about themsleves from the writing of Maria's diary.
So somehow, by reading about Maria's story the readers find their own insight s also. I don't know why, as if being lead to find answer for my confusion of life, I always end up with Coelho!
I read this book during crysis, I was very weary, living my myself, so desperately needed to know how everything will end.
Afraid to make the wrong decisions After reading this book, I feel much insipired, that everyone has their own faith, no matter what you do don't be affraid, because you are walking to the road which faith has draw for you.

Though it takes a somewhat strange act to get her there, this is the story of Maria, who finds herself in Europe, in desperate need of money, so she turns to prostitution.
The other is man who she meets outside of work I forget how she meets him She doesn't really struggle with choosing between them afte Though it takes a somewhat strange act to get her there, this is the story of Maria, who finds herself in Europe, in desperate need of money, so she turns to prostitution.
She doesn't really struggle with choosing between them after all, one she sees for work, the other by choice , but it's more about her learning about the various forms of love, and particularly the role of intimacy.
I'm not sure why this is on the "Worst Books of All Time" list - WTF? Original review: Ever wonder how anyone could live through prostitution?
This book answers those questions. It's a fascinating character study about sex in relation to relationships, and just an overall interesting story about people and their various desires.
It's also, luckily, on par with Paulo Coelho's high standards of writing, and a fun, quick read. Definitely my favorite of his thus far.

The first time I picked this book was a couple of years ago. I had loved it back then and I loved it this time, too.
The thing about Eleven Minutes that fails to amuse most o Follow Just A Girl High On Books for more reviews. The thing about Eleven Minutes that fails to amuse most of its readers is that it is the story of a prostitute.
Don't worry, there are no details given that might make you uncomfortable. It's just that the story is of a prostitute finding the love of her life in one of the most unconventional ways.
People think it's all about sex when actually, it isn't. If you follow Maria's journey as she navigates through her life, then you'll realize that what she is searching for, isn't sex.
She doesn't even care about it. In fact, the fact that she is being paid for her those eleven minutes doesn't even bother her.
It is a tool for earning her livelihood, just the way other people use their minds to earn theirs. The thing that makes her so special then, is how she is searching for that sacredness of sex, how she is searching to find true love, and how, she is probably one of the only few people alive on this earth who doesn't need sex to express her love.
People are crazy about it but all Maria wants is to get away with it. And when she does find her love, you'll notice that she doesn't have sex with him until it is time for her to say goodbye to him.
So you see, this book isn't really about that. Instead, it is about something much more magical, something much more sacred.
It is the journey of finding one's own self while also discovering what truly matters to her. At the same time, it is necessary to note that this book is actually based on a real person's experience.
The experiences aren't all hers but many of them are inspired by her. So this is Coelho trying to understand the mindset of such a person, nay such a woman, and seek solace from the way that woman held herself.
I believe it was a bold move on Coelho's part and any less effort put into this book would have made it highly hard to read. The fact then, that this book made a lot of sense to me, as a person, means a lot to me.
So Eleven Minutes is definitely the story of a prostitute, but along with that, it is also the story of a woman, of love and sex and of dreams and aspirations, of heartbreak and loss and of course, of life.
This is the story of life, and probably a rather blunt one at that. Lastly, the only other thing I'd like to add is that it does contain some sexual content.
So do not pick it up if you aren't ready to read through those details as well. Aug 11, Ankit Saxena rated it it was amazing Shelves: classics , erotic , mine , society , self-help.
I don't know, how to start my reviews? I really loved the writing. Its so close to the real feelings of Heart in the End.
From the Protagonists point of view, the society's phase has been shown quite correct. The Man who wants to understand the woman but never ever collects the gut feeling for what he actually want to know?
There's a question on the women's feeling for wha I don't know, how to start my reviews? There's a question on the women's feeling for what they actually want men to understand but say in words.
Not every man understands unsaid feelings. I really don't understand the Title before starting the Book. But where it'll go, I only get to know by reading almost pages.
And, the real story starts behind the Title. No more words. Hats-off to 'Sir' Paulo Coelho. This is the first book I have ever read by Paulo Coelho - and certainly the last one.
My rating is 2. View all 6 comments. Oct 18, Asghar Abbas rated it liked it. Haha, oh boy. Coelho here. In general, you try too much.
In retrospect though, I have come to several conclusions. Some of them even about this author too. Let us be frank and shameless. Paulo Coelho has always been a one-trick pony.
Somewhere along his existence as the main go-to writer for the pseudo-intellectuals, he perfected a formula. Which he pretty much copied and pasted more or less throughout his career.
Let's be fair, most writers flounder with their themes, often just repeat them Haha, oh boy. Let's be fair, most writers flounder with their themes, often just repeat themselves.
In this instance, repetition is certainly not the key Dear Kongos. And I am not saying Coelho is a hack.
He can write. Moving words sometimes. No idea why, but PC and his cultish followers have always rubbed me the wrong way.
Maybe it's just my aversion to crowds. I don't like being in one. I don't do people. I like popular writers, don't get me wrong.
Martin, Gaiman, King, you name it. I love them all. I just happen to love Larry Brown more. No matter how hard this faux-philosopher tries, he comes off as a very poor man's Rumi.
However, of all his tepid offerings, 11 Minutes is the most tolerable. So there is that. I have to give him that at least.
Plus, I really did like the MC and the skin of her lies. Mostly because she had embraced the shame. As she should. Which reminds me, Aurora is in Brazil right now.
Can't believe I said Aurora and Paulo Coelho in the same sentence. Well, stranger things have happened. Or are about to in any case.
