Abstract: Fiction emerges from a writer’s experience and imagination. It embraces the present, the past and the future and proffers values to hold on to as well as dreams to reach for. At its best it makes us look at life from a new perspective. A work of fiction is an imaginative narrative writing in prose. Believable characters, convincing dialogue and an interesting plot are among the essential ingredients of fiction. Because fiction writers share their thoughts with us through words, the writer’s style- the words that the writer chooses and how he puts them together – are critical to our understanding of the craft of a given work and of its effect on us. Like any other work of art, fiction offers us a vicarious experience. The ways in which we derive enjoyment from reading fiction are countless. Paulo Coelho is one of the most influential, widely read, and loved authors in the world. He is the recipient of numerous prestigious international awards, among them are the Crystal Award by the World Economic Forum and France’s Legion d’ Honneur. He was inducted into the Brazilian Academy of letters in 2002. But instead than offering readers enticing stories of savagery, excitements or sex, Coelho composes of normal individuals who place themselves in unprecedented circumstances to develop their internal identities, utilizing simple, unadorned exposition.
