On Eleven Minutes

In my search to find out what the public likes to read, I came across a report dated the 15th of March 2010. On that report, the number one best seller in English books was “Eleven Minutes,” by the author Paulo Coelho. I quickly downloaded this book to my Kindle to see the merits of the book.

The author had written this book in 2003. The title refers to the main character, Maria, who is a prostitute and what she discovers about the sexual act. It takes her eleven minutes on average to complete it, and she gets three-hundred and fifty dollars for it.

I just did not understand what was so significant in this book to attract such an audience…then I started to read the reviews. Here are some of them;

  • An exploration of sex, love and desire, by Kathie book worm.
  • A holy quest through sex, by School Teacher
  • Powerful story, by Loves Books
  • Thought provoking, by Dr. Gunta M. Caldwell (Australia)

Anyway, there were other reviews but I got too bored to read the nonsense that some people dish into our world and I read no more.

A prostitute is now giving us lessons in love, Paulo?

I appreciate some of his books but this one is really confusing. That is, unless you are totally confused already, then this book is made for you.

So why do I write this blog?

Just think:

  • It was the best seller in English books.
  • It tries to lecture us on love, desire, sex, orgasms, infidelity, marring a man without knowing what is your mission in the marriage, etc etc,.

I had to ask my Touching Stone, "Am I not in reality with our present world because I disagree with this book?"

"Are people going back to the Stone Age, by following destructive principals?"

What do you think?

    I haven't read the book, but it sounds like, people are still on a quest to find happiness in whatever avenue comes their way.

    I agree with you Penny, but we do not have to go over the edge by becoming prostitutes to find love.

    Great ideas on making the law of attraction work, which is almost always the sticking point people get.

    Thank you 'Maketing Software' to me this is all very simple, i think that is so because I look at Nature and our own natures as the bible to get my bearings.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  18. Vincent Sylvan April 24, 2012 at 11:36 am #

    Thank you computer speed for your nice comment, this is a clear example of what happens when you do not protect yourself by screening, analyzing, making sure there aren’t hermit crabs inside sea shells, or any other circumstance that may appear in your life. Now and because you weren’t careful enough to protect your daughter, she is going to go some time of her life hating the pleasures of enjoying the beach for fear of hermit crabs or other ghosts she decide to imagine. A good solution will be for you to show your daughter that not all sea shells have monsters inside by giving her another sea shell to listen to the ocean, just make sure there is nothing inside this time.

    With every little thing which appears to be developing inside this subject matter, a significant percentage of viewpoints happen to be fairly exciting. Nevertheless, I am sorry, because I do not give credence to your whole theory, all be it exciting none the less. It appears to everybody that your comments are generally not entirely validated and in simple fact you are yourself not really totally confident of your argument. In any case I did enjoy reading through it.
