Sulla sponda del fiume Piedra mi sono seduta e ho pianto
Sulla sponda del fiume Piedra mi sono seduta e ho pianto | Paulo Coelho
17 posts | 72 read | 2 reading | 9 to read
In ogni storia d’amore c’è qualcosa che avvicina i protagonisti all’eternità, ai misteri del divino, all’essenza della vita: in un sorriso, in una carezza, in uno sguardo o in una frase magari lasciata a metà, gli amanti sanno sempre cogliere i segnali che il cuore invia loro per dirigerne il cammino lungo il sentiero della perfezione. Ma che accade quando, nell’adolescenza, un grande amore viene sacrificato alla timidezza, allorché le parole si rifiutano di salire alle labbra e il futuro si perde nei colori autunnali di una quercia che domina una piazza? Cosa si prova quando, dopo undici anni, si ritrova l’innamorato e si scopre che sta percorrendo la via della santità ed è in grado di compiere miracoli? Quali sono i pensieri (e le speranze) che rimbombano nella mente e che fanno sussultare il corpo con singhiozzi o risa? Per Pilar, il sogno di un’esistenza al fianco dell’amato sembra dissolversi nelle gelide acque del fiume Piedra, ma talvolta anche i gorghi, le cascate e i ciottoli di un torrente – insieme a un rumore di passi alle spalle – possono reinventare il destino e far comprendere che “amare significa comunicare con l’altro e scoprire in lui una particella di Dio”.

“È necessario correre dei rischi,” diceva lui. “Riusciamo a comprendere il miracolo della vita solo quando lasciamo che l‘inatteso accada.”

"We can never judge the lives of others, because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation. It's one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it's another to think that yours is the only path."

This book is weird. That's probably not the best way to word a review, but that's my first thought. I feel like I just kind of spent my time reading it, but didn't get anything out of it. Just odd. This one is a pan for me. I don't hate it, I just kind of wish I had my time back. 😕

After re-reading this, my love for it did not lessen but it actually grew. I am not a fan of Paulo Coelho but this one is exceptional. It is a combination of religion and love. It is sad and happy at the same time. I really do love the ending. It had an unexpected twist in the end which I truly love. I love Pilar's character, I can easily relate to her, her insecurities, her fears and her dreams.

I recommend this to everybody.

"A fall from the third floor hurts as much as a fall from the hundredth. If I have to fall, may it be from a high place."

"No, I'm not mistaken. I know you don't love me. But I'm going to fight for your love. There are some things in life that are worth fighting for".

Casmt You seem like the one to ask! I haven't read Coehlo for ten years and now I want to reread I can't decide where to start! Any ideas? I'm thinking maybe here, by the river? 3y
Incrosas Hey, sorry I didn't reply earlier. But yes! I love his work and there's 2 books I would recommend if u want to start his work, the alchemist and by the river. Did you end up reading it? 2y
