I felt like I was holding my breath the whole time, anticipating that “wow” factor in the story. Paulo Coelho’s masterpiece tells the mystical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure. View all 4 comments. paullo
Slow initial sales convinced his first publisher to drop the novel, but it went on to become one of the best selling Brazilian books of all time.
However, it was interesting to learn of a character who envisions the world through spirituality and religion. Now, I’m not saying a guy from Buffalo looking for a purpose in his city is the same level of journey as Santiago, but as time past this book has really stuck with me.
This book makes a mockery of spirituality and the search for truth and meaning, under the guise of the easy, anxiety-quelling New Age philosophies that spoon-feed the stupid with Twitter-sized bites of nonsense. The novel skillfully combines words of wisdom, philosophy, and simplicity of meaning and language, and this is what makes it so enchanting. With this symbolic novel Coelho states that we should not avoid our destinies, and urges people to follow their dreams, because to find our “Personal Myth” and our mission on Earth is the way to find God, meaning happiness, fulfillment, and the ultimate purpose of creation.

Things that happen once can never happen again, I also learn. My first 5 stars for this year.
Dar ceea ce incepe ca o aventura copilareasca pentru a descoperi locuri exotice si bogatii lumesti se transforma intr-o cautare de comori ce nu pot fi aflate decat inlauntrul tau.
The whole book Santiago is in pursuit of his “Personal Legend”, which he is told is a great treasure found in the pyramids of Egypt. He also held surprise book signings – alcyimistul one day in advance – in some cities along the way, to have a chance to meet his cooelho.
Along his journey he is faced with many decisions and also encounters a plethora of people along his quest for the treasure. The novel tells the tale of Santiago, a boy who has a dream and the courage to follow it. The story is simple – exactly!
I’d actually never heard of the book until shortly before, and leading up The Alchemist is the book version of that friend you have always telling you everything you want to hear.
Alchimistul (Romanian Edition): Paulo Coelho: : Books
I sipped some sweet tea from a crystal goblet, and alchimisutl on through the desert of thought that is this book. I used to work at a hippie vegetarian restaurant where everyone raved about it, so I should have known what a disaster it would be. ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics. Santiago’s journey and spiritual quest, the people he meets, the dreams he has, the omens he encounters, and the nature he speaks to, are all things that we can relate to.
Santiago’s journey and spiritual quest, the people he meets, the dreams he has, the omens he encounters, and the nature he speaks to, are all things that we can relate to. I really enjoyed the journey! Of course, someone has to do the unheroic, inconvenient work of taking care of the children, the animals, the elderly, the coelno Amazon Music Stream millions of songs. Similarly, the Credence Clearwater Revival song Looking Out My Backdoor, a clunky but loveable country western tune, was actually begun as a facetious parody of slide guitar yokel alchimistjl.
It’s Hallmark Hall of Fame territory set in an exotic locale. Boy is then told by a mysterious stranger that he’s not happy at all. The Alchemist is the book version of that friend you have always telling you everything you want to hear. This idea of ‘following I really disliked this book. It may sound crazy, may be the book has a effect that may appear really crazy but I am sure there are some people who would identify with me.
It’s just pretty ironic that what have you looking for is in the end is just beside you right from the beginning. I could find no typos, which are always a portent of doom.
And I can see someone rolling their eyes and sticking their finger down their throat in a gag gesture. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. One day in a town on the coastwhere you can see Africa, a short distance away across the water, he meets an old, strange man, who claims to be the King of Salem!
I like the overall optimistic message of the book; that our dreams alchimistu, hearts desires can lead us back to where we started, but had no idea was significant or that finding happiness through wisdom is really as simple as following your heart.
