This is in my opinion one of Coelho's most captivating books. Came to me at the perfect moment, read it in one night and it's been close to my heart ever since. There are lines in here that will stay with you long after you have finished reading and characters that become close friends. A novel that begins in darkness but will leave you with so much light.

This novel moves from Antigua to Zagreb, Umbertide to Beijing, and Oaxaca to Lyon in a biting, technofuturist romp through the dark side of technology and global connection. Read the first sentence and tell me you don't want to immediately sit down and devour the rest. If you like watching Black Mirror, covering your laptop camera with tape, and Tamagotchis, you'll like this book.

How does life go on when your revolution fails? A cross between Heart of Darkness and I Hotel, Never Did the Fire is a brilliant exploration of the bitterness & frustration that can follow from tragedy & failure. The prose is so rich, so layered, so precise, it’s like a magnifying glass focusing the sun’s light into a spot of ignition. A challenging & rewarding read that, for all of its darkness, says as much about why we should try as it does about what happens when we fail.

Enthralling, smart, and relatable, these stories offer commentary on society, gender, and power...and feature ghosts. Each story in this book is a retelling of a traditional Japanese ghost tale. A thin thread connects them, growing gradually stronger until the end, making this a superb choice for those novel-enthusiasts looking to try more short stories.
