Although this book has been out for many years, and has many, many reviews, I’m going to talk about it anyway.

This book is famous for a reason.  It speaks to a soul in a way that few books can.  Written as a story – more, a myth or legend – it is really one of the best ‘self-help’ books probably every written.

A shepard who feels like he is already following his dreams of traveling is given a choice; an unknown treasure or continue along his present course and not fulfil his Path of Life. Intrigued, he decides to sell all he has and go for the gold – literally.  Along the way, he loses it all.  but he gains knowledge, companionship, and most importantly a belief of himself and how to be at one with his heart.

This is a book that has inspired me as well as given me hope for the future.  It is a book that will remain on my shelf for years to come.

Happy Writing~

    I read this book in highschool I very much enjoyed it !

    If you happen to be accepting book suggestions might I request you read and write a review on “The Handmaid’s Tale” by Margrett Atwood.
    If you enjoy dystopian novels at all this one is amazing and full of symbolism, really a wonderful read.

    Happy reading (:
