O Aleph - Paulo Coelho I held out a lot of hope in finding some profound thoughts in this book based on the sample I read. It seemed deeply philosophical, but conveyed in a very normal, understandable way. Unfortunately, that ended with the sample- as I was afraid it might. It went from deep and insightful to rambling and dull. I debated a long time before paying £7.99 for the Kindle edition, and now I'm just angry that I talked myself into it. The story is essentially about an older man and a very insistent female groupie that take a long train journey across Russia. It's styled as an auto-biographical work, which if true, well...it was rubbish, really.
