The Alchemist

Book Review   by:Niji     Original Author: Paulo Coelho
ª
 
Captivating and making everybody want to dream! Anyone, even a pessimist, who reads this book, is sure to metamorphose to one who believes in his dreams and the universal conspiracy that leads him to his long yearned treasure. The caterpillar of negativism disappears to bring forth the lovely colorful wings of a butterfly teaching in simple true and pure terms that if you wish for something and desire in the depths of your heart with the same earnestness as does a child who craves for his toy, then success is definitely achievable.

Santiago travels from the Andulasian terrain to unknown territory in search of immense treasure that lay hidden in the region of the Pyramids. His pursuit of dreams is a journey marked by several events that teach us to not only listen to the world outside but to voices that dwell deep within us. The desert with its voices of caution allows Santiago to instinctively recognize the perils ahead, and the alchemist teaches him, and through Santiago to the rest of the world, that hardships arise in life as a test of the deserving capability toward attaining what one sets out to.

The book reveals the sounds of the omens that surround and guide us at all times. In his own unparalleled style Coelho announces the Soul of the World that connects every human in a way. This is an earnest reach to humankind unearthing the rule that every man has his own treasure to gather.

Enchanting and extremely influencing, this is a must read. This would instigate the urge to dream and in those who do the urge to achieve their dreams! Take time off to listen to voices inside you and it would not be long before the entire world sits up to listen to your tale of triumph!
