Travelling with Paulo Coelho

I didn't realize that best-selling novelist Paulo Coelho would be so popular in Russia even their president had a chat with him and said how much he enjoys his books. It is so pleasing to see people like the Russian president read books written by people like Paulo Coelho. I acually just picked up a book written by Paulo Coelho yesterday, the book is "The Alchemist" I had read it in the nineties and enjoyed it immensely, I guess it has a new message for me or to remind me of something I've forgotten.
Paulo Coelho Travelling across the Siberian steppe
"Crowds of fans have swarmed on to railway platforms to see the author at remote outposts along the Trans-Siberian route to Vladivostok. More than 1,000 people turned up for one book-signing en route and groups of fans waving signs and begging autographs have appeared at his window at every stop." mb
