Description

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho continues to change the lives of its readers forever. With more than two million copies sold around the world, The Alchemist has established itself as a modern classic, universally admired.

Paulo Coelho's masterpiece tells 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.

The story of the treasures Santiago finds along the way teaches us, as only a few stories can, 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.

  • (4/5)
    it's a master piece... it's a fine way to say huge in short... but it would have being great if the writer add in further edition, a highlight on the subject of selection. From the book the hint I collect is that the people that become alchemists where selected one. Yes, there way & observations were far better than others but they were already have this nature in them. it was just polished with time because they follow the signs.
