Review: I bought "The Zahir" with great anticipation, having recently read "The Witch of Portobello", which I found to be an unbridled joy to read. It is exhuberant, mould-breaking, moving, wise and insightful, holding a microscope to the mysterious labyrinths of the human psyche. So I bought this book with the opinion that Paulo Coelho is an exceptional author, and I still believe that. However, having read "The Witch of Portobello", I was astonished to find "The Zahir" to be a repetitive, obvious, and rather poorly written novel, whose narrative is frequently elbowed aside by authorial intrusion. The novel mentions intriguing-sounding events in the protagonists journey, but fails to weave them into the novel, relegating such important landmarks as a life-changing pilgrimmage to mere asides. The reader is trapped in the narrator's head, but not allowed to see the cartography of the memory and its by-ways. Whilst I understand that the novel is about obsession, Coelho here chooses not to explore anything that can make such a plot more than vaguely interesting. Which is a great pity, because there is a rich seam of creative possibilities running through the text, but it has been flattened into a featureless watermark. It is a long time since I endured a book quite as dull.
