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.

The Alchemist (Paulo Coelho) Book Reviews

An amazing readI 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..Score: 5/5

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..Score: 2/5

Philosophy is the reason we do not understand one anotherThis 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..Score: 5/5

Enjoyable BookI’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..Score: 5/5
