“Más ambiciosa que El Alquimista. Una historia que nos hace reflexionar”. TIME magazine

En La quinta montaña, Paulo Coelho nos regresa al siglo IX, al turbulento Medio Oriente, donde el profeta Elías enfrenta dificultades para conservar su fe viva en un mundo en constante agitación, con realezas tiránicas y dioses paganos.

La historia de Elías es una lección de persistencia, una existencia en la esperanza y un recorrido que nunca olvidarás. Inspirada en circunstancias que han alterado para siempre la vida del propio Coelho, La quinta montaña es un testamento de lo cierto que es que las tragedias de la vida no deben considerarse un castigo, sino un reto para el espíritu.

Apasionante en su narrativa y elegante en su prosa, La quinta montaña enseña e inspira como ninguna otra novela. Ésta es una historia atemporal para cualquier época, un relato del pasado que resuena poderosamente en nuestros días.

“More ambitious than The Alchemist. A thought-provoking tale.” – TIME magazine

In The Fifth Mountain, Paulo Coelho takes us back to the ninth century, to the turbulent Middle East, where the prophet Elijah is struggling to keep his faith alive in a world of constant upheaval, tyrannical royalty, and pagan gods.

Elijah’s story is a lesson in persistence, an exercise in hope, and a journey you will never forget. Inspired by a circumstance that forever altered Coelho’s own life, The Fifth Mountain is a testament to the truth that tragedy in life should not be considered a punishment, but a challenge of the spirit.

Gripping in its narrative and graceful in its prose, The Fifth Mountain teaches and inspires like no other novel. This is a timeless story for the ages, a tale of the past that resonates powerfully today.

One of the most influential writers of our time, Paulo Coelho is the author of thirty international bestsellers, including The Alchemist, Warrior of the Light, Brida, Veronika Decides to Die, and Eleven Minutes. He is a member of the Brazilian Academy of Letters and a United Nations Messenger of Peace. Paulo is the recipient of 115 international prizes and awards, among them, the Chevalier de l'Ordre National de la Légion d'Honneur (Legion of Honor). Born in Rio de Janeiro in 1947, he soon discovered his vocation for writing. He worked as a director, theater actor, songwriter, and journalist. In 1986, a special meeting led him to make the pilgrimage to Saint James Compostela (in Spain). The Road to Santiago was not only a common pilgrimage but a turning point in his existence. A year later, he wrote The Pilgrimage, an autobiographical novel that is considered the beginning of his literary career. He lives in Geneva, Switzerland.
