About the book

image3.9/5.0

"My heart is afraid that it will have to suffer," the boy told the alchemist one night as they looked up at the moonless sky." Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams." Every few decades a book is published that changes the lives of its readers forever. The Alchemist is such a book. With over a million and a half copies sold around the world, The Alchemist has already established itself as a modern classic, universally admired. Paulo Coelho's charming fable, now available in English for the first time, will enchant and inspire an even wider audience of readers for generations to come. The Alchemist is the magical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure as extravagant as any ever found. From his home in Spain he journeys to the markets of Tangiers and across the Egyptian desert to a fateful encounter with the alchemist. The story of the treasures Santiago finds along the way teaches us, as only a few stories have done, about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, above all, following our dreams.

New to reading? 📖 The Alchemist can be your portal to enter the world of good books! You might have heard "Oh, these kinda books are a bit overwhelming!". But hey... d'you know what am I gonna tell you? Even I was a noob in reading books just a few months ago, but doing quite well now! There is no effort in reading, there is only passion. The Alchemist offers a story that builds curiosity tension on you eyebrows with every page you flip. Look out for all the teachings hidden in those pages!

The “I’m 14 and this is deep” book of a generation. Less a story and more of a wandering self-help novel.

Just a childish, derivative nonsense. Also occasionally hard muck ideology. I don’t trust anyone who says this book changed their life.

This is probably one of the books that i read in no time! Really enjoyed it! The protagonist goes on a trip that lasts for year, to get to the destination and find out that the treasure is actually at the starting point of his trip. This is life

It's a fable about a person who wants to turn his dream into reality. The book describes everything in story form, which is needed to turn one's goal or dream into reality. The story is written in very simple words and is very interesting.

I've read a handful of books by this author and he has a wonderful way of creating believably real characters. And each book had a meaningful lesson to them and they're quick and easy reads.

Vidunderlig bog som ethvert ungt menneske, der står ubesluttet på livets bolværk, burde læse. Paulo Coelho mestrer den svære kunst, at skrive simpelt og essentielt.

Truly my favorite book... of all time! The story is simple, the message is easy to follow. Stay on your Legend and the universe will deliver you what you desire most in life. Beautifully written. I often find myself going back to The Alchemist for different perspective at different phases of my life. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone. It’s a MUST read.
