Something about a fortune teller, who tells him that a dream he had about the pyramids in Egypt will lea...

A very good friend of mine from Overseas or completely other part of the world introduced this novel to me as one of those novels that completely change and transform human lives from worse to and for the better, and to be perfectly honest with you, I was also intrigued by it and very happy and read...

I bought this book while in Amsterdam for a couple of reasons: The title first caught my attention, and the friend I was with said he'd read it and thought it was... ok. But mostly because of the title. Since buying it I've read a lot of reviews that say it's... ok. Which is why it sat on my T...
