Book Review – The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho



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 (:
