This is about what you do when you're in a difficult moral situation and are literally offered a deal with the Devil. I can't say much more without giving away the entire story. What I will say is that there's magic in this book... in the story and in the way that Coelho creates this world. It's a story of right and wrong when the line between them is blurred and the way you discern the difference.

This book was just like Mr. Coelho other great books. It is written wonderfully. The story is exciting and keeps you on the edge wanting more with little nuggets of wisdom scattered throughout. This is a good read and I would definitely recommend reading this book.

What a great book! The philosophers of old but a totally modern story. Love Paolo Coelho

The Devil and Miss Prym is a modern day fable regarding the inherent good or evil in humanity. In this tale, the devil comes to Georgia looking for a soul to steal... wait, that wasn't it. The devil comes to the town of Viscos with a proposition for the townsfolk. Eleven gold bars are buried in the woods and the people of Viscos are welcome to the fortune, which is sure to turn the tide for the town setting them on a trajectory to prosperity. However, the only way to obtain the fortune is to break one of the Ten Commandments: Thou Shalt Not Kill. If the people of the town kill one of their own, the devil will know that people are inherently evil. If they do not act, there just may be goodness in humanity after all.

The premise of the story started out interesting, but the good v. evil bickering grew old and the prose became tired and predictable. My recommendation is to skip the book and take the gold. No moral dilemma with that recommendation at all.

I was a big Coelho fan after reading The Alchemist, which is a simple but deep story.
Coelho writes very well, or at least the translations don't lose any of his prose, but I found the story to be a bit flat and preachy. If you have seen any Hollywood movies or read fairy tales, it is no more than they can offer. It was an easy book to read and entertaining, but did not leave me enlightened.

I read this book on an airplane back from New Zealand to the USA. It was a pretty quick read (in all fairness, the flight was pretty long, but I finished it en route) and it really attacked some core ideas of morality and spirituality. Coelho is awesome and this book is great. Please read it if you have the time.

This is the second of three in a series of interesting, spiritual works.
"Veronika Decides to Die" is the first and well worth reading.
Can't wait to get my hands - Kindle - on "By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept"
Dry, expedited ending. Not author's best work. As a Paulo fan, i would have like to see the of the story better expressed.
