I love it when a little book packs a big punch. That’s how I felt about The Alchemist, an inspiring fable about an Andalusian Shepard named Santiago and his personal quest to find his “treasure.” This book will get you thinking a lot about the universe and your place in it. Recommended for anyone who wants a simple, but powerful read.
From Goodreads: Paulo Coelho’s enchanting novel has inspired a devoted following around the world. This story, dazzling in its powerful simplicity and inspiring wisdom, is about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of a treasure buried in the Pyramids. Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king, and an alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest. No one knows what the treasure is, or if Santiago will be able to surmount the obstacles along the way. But what starts out as a journey to find worldly goods turns into a discovery of the treasure found within. Lush, evocative, and deeply humane, the story of Santiago is an eternal testament to the transforming power of our dreams and the importance of listening to our hearts. Check it out on Goodreads!
