Publisher's Summary

Maria träumt von Abenteuern, fernen Ländern und der großen Liebe. Doch eine Woche Badeferien in Rio de Janeiro ist der einzige Traum, den sie sich leisten kann. Am Strand wird sie von einem Europäer angesprochen, der ihr anbietet, als Tänzerin im Nachtclub zu arbeiten. Für Maria klingt das wie der Anfang eines Märchens; doch in Wirklichkeit ist sie gezwungen, sich als Sexarbeiterin durchzubringen: Sie tut es ohne Scham, denn ihr Herz ist nicht dabei, und sie hat sich geschworen, sich nicht zu verlieben. Da trifft sie jemanden, der sie bezaubert und zu ihr in einer neuen, unverständlichen Sprache spricht. Der Sprache der Seele...

Paulo Coelho is the Brittney Spears of modern literature

I used to enjoy Paulo Coelho‘s books as a teenager. But now, after reading 11 Minutes, his style sounds so naive and flat to me. It feels almost like using the word „soul“ every few lines is all it takes for the book to qualify as a “spiritual read”: “souls are being touched” and “inner light shines through” - I feel all of his books are full of those banal and incredible 2 dimensional “deep, spiritual” descriptions. His attempts to be as profound as possible really make him sound repetitive and shallow. Although I found the topic quite interesting, I feel the author sugar coated prostitution, presenting it like life is presented in superficial romantic Hollywood movies.
