Official Review: Dancing with Sophia by Ramalho Almeida

Please use this sub-forum to discuss any fiction books or series that do not fit into one of the other categories. If the fiction book fits into one the other categories, please use that category instead.
Forum rules
While in the forum's younger and less active days this used to be the one and only forum for "reviews and discussions about specific books", this is now just the subforum "other fiction" in a more well-organized "reviews and discussions about specific books" section with subforums for each genre. Check it out! :) Remember, the forums in the reviews section (including this forum) are for posting about a single book or series in topic, and the topic title should include the book's title. If you are creating a new topic, please try to post it in one of the other genres rather than posting it here in the "other fiction" section. This is only for books that do not fit in any of the other genre categories we have listed.

The plot is such that most of us can relate to it: someone running away from their problems and opting to embark on a spiritual journey as a cop-out of sorts.
Actually, his spiritual journey was not a cop-out and I found it inspirational. Thanks for replying.

The review is well written and easy to read. The book might be some of those one you take time to read to flow smoothly. Might turn out interesting.

Yes, I agree. Dancing in this case is a metaphor for going with the flow of the Universe. Thanks for replying and I hope you enjoy the book!

It's a shame that syntax and style can be so distracting. I think your suggestion about the use of humility is a good one.

It's too bad that there isn't anything particularly unique about this one. Still, I'm glad you found enjoyment in it. Thanks for the review!
I totally agree. What's the genre of the book? It seems there's not much to learn from the book anymore (apart from what the review explains).
“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.”

The genre for OBC is other fiction but I would add spiritual as a category. If one is new to this category, I think the book would be a good introduction, but if you have read a fair amount from it, it would likely not be new. Thanks for replying.
