The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho Book Summary

A special 25th anniversary edition of the extraordinary international bestseller, including a new Foreword by Paulo Coelho.

Combining magic, mysticism, wisdom and wonder into an inspiring tale of self-discovery, The Alchemist has become a modern classic, selling millions of copies around the world and transforming the lives of countless readers across generations.

Paulo Coelho's masterpiece tells the mystical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure. His quest will lead him to riches far different—and far more satisfying—than he ever imagined. Santiago's journey teaches us about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, of recognizing opportunity and learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, most importantly, to follow our dreams.

Amazing. First time ever reading this book , I will be reading it again. Is extremely metaphorical and reality shattering.

What did I just read?. This book was a hard read. The author switches the between who’s story/thoughts we are following with little to no indication of who’s thoughts you are reading now. Also I’m convinced this was written by an adult who could write good and then a 5 year old would take over for a page, and then the adult would take back over. I had a love hate relationship with this book until the very end. However once I read the ending, it was like 70% hate. I will never read this again, and never recommend to anyone. If anyone wanted to discuss this book with me, I’d probably roll my eyes.

hard pass.. thats it.

PLEASE READ. Truly Enlightening Book!

Such a Great Book. This book was assigned to me for a class. But, when I tell you I’ve never been so entertained by an assignment. The author did a really good job on this story. I would really recommend this book if your into adventures.

This book gets better & better 🙌🏾. I just love how much this book has to offer

Amazing!. This book seems timeless

Great read. Loved this book!

Enjoyable Book. I’m not the type of person to leave reviews but this book speaks to anyone. It doesn’t matter if you’re in your early 20’s or late 50’s this book is so relatable. I’m 21 and figuring out my way through life still and this book helped me view my journey differently. My work journey, school journey, relationships and etc. It reminded me that sometimes you just have to stop and hear the Language of the World. The sound of the wind blowing through the trees, the sound of birds chirping in the morning or even the sound of cars stuck in traffic.

My favorite book…. I absolutely love this book. I always seem to find myself coming back to it, to read and reflect on my own life as I pursue my Personal Legend. This book has many lessons, and I think everyone can relate to Santiago in search for his treasure. Read this book, you will not regret it.

A great read!!!!. So many things to learn from with this book.

Follow Your Dreams. Well as a child if we had only had such a vision of conquest of sorts to pursue wouldn’t have been a life long journey. So many of us decided to do we we think we are suppose to do and miss the opportunity. I hope we can rekindle the sense of adventure and remember God is with us in our fears to overcome or uncertainties. Glad I got to read as an adult. To old now to do much but there is always hope and we can still dream.

The Pursuit for a greater consciousness of life.. Great Story…..

The Timely Omen. I started this book two years ago, not finishing past halfway through the book. At this point and time in my life I was really starting to realize self in following my true Personal Legend. Now fully immersed in my true purpose, I started the book over right before the year ended last year. Transitioning into an unknown but yet exciting next chapter in my journey, my heart gravitated to this piece to remind me that I’m living everything God has made me to live. Amazing book!

🔥🔥🔥. Amazing!

The Alchemist. I love the book. I took a lot of notes from what the book was saying and will apply it to my life.

Must read!. This book was awesome! I actually had to stop reading it before bed bc I would get too inspired and motivated. This is one I will reread for the rest of my life.

Worthy of a” mention.”. Exactly what I needed

A Comforting Read. Beautiful story.

A good book. Everyone can learn from this book

The alchemist review. This book is an amazing read. I love how the author sets up the plot and explains the setting. As I’m reading it feels like I am watching a movie as the author set of imagery with clarity. In the book the characters are simple to remember and they have personalities.

Amazing. This book is insightful and mesmerizing. It subtly teaches so many life lessons.

One Word to Describe this Book: Special.. The ending of this book had me in the edge of my seat while I was thinking what was going to happen to our protagonist. Great story of the journey of life which any of us can resonate at least once in the stories that this book unfolds by the genius mind of the honorable Paulo.

Philosophy is the reason we do not understand one another. This book tells of how all things are simple just that. All things are related and we have to listen to ourselves, to our hearts, and to the world. For life repeats itself and we are just apart of the cycle of love that fuels life. And that is all. Philosophy is taking this simple yet poetic way to describe life and in turn forces us to stray away and question the simplicity of all things. When really all things are just that. Simple. This book will let you decide for yourself if you’ve been listening to the world or being guided by others interpretations.

Highly overrated. An absolutely dreadful read that burns philosophical and religious views into your eyes as to make sure you won’t forget this terrible book.

Amazing book. Loved this book, definitely reading it again.

There’s no such thing as alchemy. 👎

Nice book. One of the best book i ever read in my life.is engaging and it remind me to never give up on my dreams.

The Alchemist is eye opening. Great read lots of life lessons!

Eye opening experience. Follow the omens and read this book, words can’t explain the feelings that are provoked by this book.

An amazing read. I find it incredible how what the author went through reflects so greatly with what he wrote in his book. Suffering in order to find his own personal legend to bring his own book out to the world, and getting tested himself until he found his treasure.

Very good book!. If you are ready to open your mind to new possibilities, this a good place to start!

Life progressing. For me this book was read at a time in my life where I needed it the most. The story of Santiago and his personal legend is one full of surprises and hope for better days. I felt enriched after having read the book. With the knowledge that all is achievable with the proper mindset.

Magnificent!. I only wish it were longer

Look the book. Simply amazing, Well thought out.

Completely Recommend. I love this book. A must read for all. Not only it changes u after u read it, but I love how the author makes the lessons to be learned into a story. If ever was the day I was lost on an island, and I have to choose 1 book with me, I still will have this book with me any day! Completely love it! And the only book I have that I keep re-reading on a monthly basis.

Great read!. This book was so intriguing. It’s motivating, and inspiring. No wonder it’s a classic.

🔥🔥🔥. Excellent book

10/10. Great book

WOW!. Great lessons here.

Great read. A book about life and finding ones purpose. Highly recommended!

Worth reading!. Makes me wanna not stop till I achieve my dreams!

Finally read for myself…. I’ve heard a few people say good things about this book. I’m very happy with myself at having finally read it for myself. Perhaps I’ll come back to it soon. Thankful for these words.

Great Book. Couldn’t stop reading this one! Never stop searching for your own personal legend. You are never alone on your journey. Always follow your heart because wherever your heart may take you is where you will find your treasure.

Ok but not great. Kind of motivator book to push you to your goal and dreams

Too expensive- price gouging. $13.99 for an ebook, and not available on the competitors platform. More expensive than the paper version. This is what monopolies and corporate cartels look like. Meanwhile when you buy a Blu-ray you get the digital version for free.

Great Message Plot could’ve been more developed. Very heartfelt story Learned a couple gems but story was underdeveloped.

Beautiful. This book is full of spiritual significance and life lessons to be learned. I loved the entirety of it. I would recommend to anyone who feels without purpose and ask them to look deep inside themselves to find what it is they are meant to do in this world. There are good times and there are bad times in one’s life but just know that they are all written by the same hand.

Blessed me. In a time I seem not to have a sense of direction, the messages and inspiration the book bares minister to me. Great read this one 🙏🏾

Live Your Dreams. Wonderful read…will definitely read more of his books.

Amazing book very enticing. I have read the beginning and the whole flow of the book is very alluring. One of the best books I’ve read!!! 9.5/10.

The Masterpiece. One of the greatest books I’ve ever read.

Amazing book. Amazing book which takes you on a magical journey of self reflection

Takes you on a journey. I reread this book after 15 years and it gave me a completely different concept on my journey of life. The story is very adaptable for you to find your own personal legend. No wonder after so many years and so many duffest languages it's still going strong. 😃

The Alchemist. Beautiful book.

The Alcemist. This booked kept me captivated from the turn of the first page . Exciting, soul searching and reassuring I am on the right journey too.

Interesting. The first hundred pages seemed nonsensical in nature then everything comes together at the end and it was lovely

Great book. Easy to read, and hooks you up on reading further. Great story that will make you think about real things in life.

Incredible. A book that details the journey of the soul very well, thank you for this.

Good read. Such a great read. Gives you a quite interesting perspective on the purpose of life.

Love this book. Grounding and inspiring ✨

Something that will make you think of life. A very interesting tale about travel, love and something that is in everyone of us

Great book.. I have a hard copy of this book. It is a must read by everyone.

A great book! Relatable on a spiritual level!. I thoroughly enjoyed this book about a boy full of integrity and his desire to follow his dreams! It’s one of those books that has connections on a spiritual level, and definitely made me think about how often in life I make decisions with my head rather than listening to my heart

Brilliant. My favourite book of all time.

The Alchemist. Great moral book. Full of nice little incidences. Good for a person of any age.

Beautiful read showing beauty in dreams. Best book I Have read

Very Good. Inspiration book teaches you to follow you dreams

The Alchemist. The Alchemist is one of the best books I’ve read. The storytelling is absolutely inspiring —it has motivated and assured me to continue chasing my personal legend. I love the spiritual wisdom and proverbs that Paulo Coelho describes through the old King and The Alchemist. An excellent read and definitely a book to have on the book shelf at home.

An Incontestably Beautiful Piece!. An amazing story from Paulo Coelho that I will certainly recommend to anyone who is either seeking a great story or inspiration to find and accomplish one’s life purpose. A book that I will truly never forget!

Wonderful read. Love this book! It’s a beautifully written book that is powerful in its messages. I feel more drive to fulfill my dreams as did the boy. I love the descriptions from the book as I can visually picture it in my mind. It was a short read, but it did an amazing job bringing me along with the boys journey. This was a great read!

A Good Read. A Good Read

Feedback. Best book ever read in my entire life.

The Alchemist. As with other stories, the author passes on life lessons through his parable-like storytelling. It has been a pretty good recipe for success for him, and makes for interesting, and enlightening reading.

A big metaphor to life. You always hear about this book, no doubt why. It has a way to connect to you and makes you think about what’s your biggest desire in life.

Alcomist. Best book I ever read.

A constant read to escape ones reality. I love this book and find myself reading it over and over as an escape.

Good :). A nice story about destiny and determination. Little heavy handed on the religious themes imo but beautifully told nonetheless

I liked it!. It was a good book! The reason why it was so interesting was more so the author’s writing ability rather than the plot itself. The author turned a relatively uninteresting plot into a fantastic story! I really enjoyed it and it was an easy read. Would totally recommend!
