The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho – Book Review

the-alchemistDREAMS ARE MADE TO BE FOLLOWED.

LIFE IS MEANT TO BE LIVED.

SOME BOOKS ARE MEANT TO BE READ, LOVED AND PASSED ON.

THE ALCHEMIST IS ONE OF THOSE BOOKS.

“My heart is afraid that it will have to suffer,” the boy told the alchemist one night as they looked up at the moonless sky.” Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams.”

Every few decades a book is published that changes the lives of its readers forever. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho has already established itself as a modern classic, universally admired.

The Alchemist is the magical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure as extravagant as any ever found. From his home in Spain he journeys to the exotic markets of North Africa (Tangiers) and then into the Egyptian desert, where a fateful encounters with the alchemist awaits him…..

The story of the treasures Santiago finds along the way teaches us, as only a few stories have done, about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, learning to read the omens strewn along life’s path, and, above all, following our dreams.
