"The latest novel from #1 internationally best-selling author Paulo Coelho is a classic of inspiration and reflection, a meditation on life, love, and the significance of change. A novel of philosophical reflection set in Jerusalem during the time of the Crusades. Here a community of Christians, Arabs, and Jews who have long lived together harmoniously have been warned of an imminent attack and certain destruction. Contemplating their demise, the community assembles to seek the wise counsel of a Greek Copt, who imparts comforting and guiding wisdom on the enduring attributes of human character. The novel unfolds as a sequence of parables on love, faith, sex, friendship, beauty, bravery, loyalty, and success. "--… (més)

« 14 juillet 1099. Alors que les croisés sont aux portes de la ville, les habitants de Jérusalem se pressent autour d'un homme mystérieux connu sous le nom du Copte pour entendre ses derniers enseignements. » : voilà le résumé éditeur d’un des plus mauvais romans de Paulo Coelho.
Je ne vais pas y aller par quatre chemins : si vous avez été enthousiasmé par cet ouvrage, c’est que vous n’avez jamais lu le Prophète de Khalil Gibran (1923) dont le Manuscrit retrouvé n’est qu’un décalque.
Et au jeu des comparaisons, le livre de Coelho peine à s’élever à la hauteur de celui de Gibran. Pourtant, Coelho sait se faire poète. La forme courte lui convient particulièrement bien comme le prouve Maktub ou Le fleuve qui coule et L’Alchimiste jouit justement d’une écriture charriant une belle musicalité. Hélas, rien à faire ici, ça ne prend pas.
A l’instar de chez Gibran, le personnage du livre appelé le Copte dispense un enseignement de l’Amour aux auditeurs effrayés venus le consulter alors que Jérusalem est sur le point de tomber. On retrouve les thématiques de Coelho sur l’amour, l’amitié, le combat, mais tout cela fleure bon la guimauve new âge et on espère rapidement arriver au bout du livre tant il semble lourd.
Encore une fois, au risque de me répéter, autant le Prophète de Gibran mérite d’être relu régulièrement pour en pénétrer l’exquise poésie et la hauteur de vue, autant ce Manuscrit me semble un coup d’épée dans l’eau. Peut-être suis-je trop sévère et adopterai-je un autre point de vue lors d’une prochaine relecture, mais, pour l’heure, je suis sorti navré de cette première découverte.

platitudes ( )

"It is better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all" says the mysterious Greek known only as the Copt, in Paulo Coelho's spiritual odyssey, set in Jerusalem in 1099. Thereby allegedly pre-dating Alfred Lord Tennyson, to whom that quote is usually attributed, by some 750 years.

And that, for me, sums up the problem with the book. Possibly an interesting idea, but it doesn't actually come up with anything new. Or where it does, it all feels a little out of step. Or just plain daft.

My purchase of this book was a prime example of why you should not judge a book by its cover. Being interested in history from the Crusades to the Reformation, a book with a central theme of an 11th century manuscript appealed. I anticipated getting a story set in the First Crusade. What I got was a series of platitudes.

The book begins by giving background - the discovery of a manuscript in 1974 - then leads into the "manuscript" itself. In Jerusalem, on the eve of the First Crusade battle that saw the recapture of the city, a group of men and women gather together to listen to the aforementioned mysterious Greek. As you do.

Over the course of the evening, they ask him to talk of many things: Defeat; Solitude; Love; Elegance; Beauty; Sex; Anxiety; Miracles; and so it goes on. And that's it.

For an ancient manuscript, the Copt's sermon appears to address some very modern problems; the anxiety referred to here seems to be very much the modern, office-related anxiety, rather than that of people about to face battle.

I'm not sure what this book sets out to achieve. If it meant to be thought-provoking, then by lifting old quotes from elsewhere, such as Tennyson, it fails, as the only thought it brings to mind is who said that before.

Perhaps I am missing the point completely. Perhaps it is meant to be ironic. Perhaps phrases like 'Listen to the wind, but don't forget about your horse' are actually meant to be ridiculous. Along with the story of the religious followers who in the space of three generations managed to forget how to light their sacred fire, how to recite their prayer, and where their sacred place was, but were still rewarded by miracles. It is probably meant to say 'God is with you as long as you have faith'. To me it just says why bother with all that religious stuff if even when you show no respect and forget everything, you still come out on top?

I am lead to believe Coelho is a highly popular and respected author. On the basis of this work, the words of the Copt seem apt: "Each time we see .... the arrogant humbled we are witnessing a miracle." It's time for a miracle. ( )

Brazilian novelist, Paulo Coelho, has enjoyed huge recognition and praise since the release of his first best-seller, The Alchemist, in 1988; the story of a young shepherd who goes on a treasure-seeking voyage, only to find that the treasure was the journey itself. Selling 65 million copies, and being translated into over 70 languages, the book became one of best-selling books in history. With every new Coelho book, expectations are high and the same applies to his latest novel, Manuscript Found in Accra.
