Summary

Summary

New York Times audio bestseller

From South America to Holland to Nepal—a new journey in the company of Paulo Coelho, bestselling author of The Alchemist.
 
Drawing on the rich experience of his own life, bestselling author Paulo Coelho takes us back in time to relive the dreams of a generation that longed for peace. In Hippie, he tells the story of Paulo, a young, skinny Brazilian man with a goatee and long, flowing hair, who dreams of becoming a writer, and Karla, a Dutch woman in her twenties who has been waiting to find a companion to accompany her on the fabled hippie trail to Nepal.

After meeting each other in Amsterdam, she convinces Paulo to join her on a trip aboard the Magic Bus that travels from Amsterdam to Istanbul and across Central Asia to Kathmandu. As they embark on this journey together, Paulo and Karla explore a love affair that awakens them on every level and leads to choices and decisions that will set the course for their lives thereafter.

Editorial Reviews

A celebration of the spiritual longing that inspired a generation to abandon norms and pursue an unconventional path to the truth, this metafiction by the revered Coelho lyrically fuses the lines between authenticity and illusion, art and fact. Booklist
Woven with self-discovery and punctuated by. . . unique wisdom. . . The focal point of Hippie is human connection – what happens when we ‘allow two souls the time to get to know each other.’ Bookreporter
Divine surprise. . . Paulo Coelho's most autobiographical story, is an interesting documentary about the hippie generation of the 70's. L’Express  
Paulo Coelho is undoubtedly an alchemist. He turns everything into gold. La Vanguardia
Coelho’s true love is spirituality. The Financial Express  
The journey of a lifetime. . . . Coelho helps us understand a generation. Free Press Journal  
A novelist who writes in a universal language. The New York Times
Beautifully written. . . . An inspiring read. People  
“The novel reads rather like a series of impressions clustered around a trip (no pun intended) through Europe and toward Kathmandu…A nostalgic immersion in the mind-blowing 1960s.” Kirkus Reviews
“Less an homage to the sex-drugs-and-rock ’n’ roll mantra of the time and more a celebration of the spiritual longing that inspired a generation to abandon norms and pursue an unconventional path to the truth, this metafiction by the revered Coelho lyrically fuses authenticity and illusion, art and fact…The global appeal of this megaselling storyteller remains extraordinary, and his latest autobiographically inspired novel will bring in the fans.” Booklist
