In my to-meet list, there are so many famous persons whom I dream to meet and spend some time with. There are several scientists, actors, actress, political leaders, poets, IT specialists, business founders, sports person, writers and journalists in this list but Paulo Coelho is the person whom I would like to meet first.
He is a famous Brazilian lyricist and novelist who has become one of the most widely read authors in the world. I am a great fan of his writing, enjoyed and deeply touched by most of his writing and that’s why I want to meet him in person to talk about those stories and to know about the person who actually has got a brilliant way of storytelling.
I read the book ‘Alchemist’ by him more than once and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is an inspiring and thought provoking book and the writer has been able to tell the story in a fascinating way. This book has been translated into 67 different languages and has got numerous positive and critically acclaimed reviews. I know very little about the man behind this amazing stories and that’s why I want to meet him – to know more about him. I place him in a highly esteemed position. I have enjoyed his many books including ‘The Alchemist’, ‘The Valkyries’, ‘Eleven Minutes’, ‘The Zahir’ so much that I wanted to meet the person who wrote those truly amazing stories.
Writers are dream-catchers and possess a magical power of blending the truth and imagination to create a story. Storytelling and giving them lives is a very difficult task. Paulo Coelho is a gifted writer who can easily absorb readers’ attention to his powerful stories. His books are page-turners and would always make the reader to desire read more. I have been so mesmerised by his story that I would like to meet the real person who tells us the stories. I’d like to know his thoughts and opinions on many things and would like to spend some time with one of my favourite writers.
