50BC10 #8: Brida

Brida: A Novel (P.S.)Brida: A Novel by Paulo Coelho

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I enjoyed the writing, as I always do with Coelho, but I couldn't decide if this was a story about Brida or a tutorial in Wicca. I had a hard time pinning down the main protagonist (Brida), although I think that was partially the point. Her soul searching came across as almost irritating, partially because of her own sense of martyrdom and suffering. All of that said, there are some lovely descriptive passages and the back story between the Magus and Wicca made the story more interesting.
