Short Description & Notes

In The Celestine Prophecy, a middle aged American man accidently hears about an ancient manuscript discovered in Peru a few years ago. Shortly after, a series of coincidences puts him in contact with the nine insights contained in the document. Those insights will shake the way we think about life and about our purpose as human beings. The plot, the dialogues as well as characters are very poorly developed to a point that sometimes they seem superfluous in the story. However, James Redfield New Age perspective of life is worthy of reading. Though not brilliantly written, this is a book we all should read since it makes us rethink about the modern way of living and it opens our mind to new perspectives.

“The Celestine Prophecy contains secrets that are currently changing our world. Drawing on ancient wisdom, it tells you how to make connections among the events happening in your own life right now…and lets you see what is going to happen to you in the years to come!

A book that has been passed from hand to hand, from friend to friend, since it first appeared in small bookshops across America, The Celestine Prophecy is a work that has come to light at a time when the world deeply needs to read its words. The story it tells is a gripping one of adventure and discovery, but it is also a guidebook that has the power to crystallize your perceptions of why you are where you are in life…and to direct your steps with a new energy and optimism as you head into tomorrow.” – Goodreads: The Celestine Prophecy
