The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho

 

 

If you asked me to name some of the books which topped my wishlist; "The Alchemist" would be one of them. I have to confess that it's been a year since i bought this book at a book sale and i still couldn't get my hands on it because i didn't want to cheat on the other books i was currently reading!!! And at last, when i did get to read it, Paulo Coelho didn't dissapoint me.

 

The book was UNLIKE any other book i've ever read. It was not what i expected. It was different. Beautifully different.... At first glance, It's a story of Santiago; a shepherd boy on a quest for treasure at the Egyptian Pyramids. But when you delve in deeper, there's much more to it than any treasure hunt. Santiago encounters various people throughout his journey, each having an impact on his quest. It enlightens the reader about the life lessons he learns in his pursuit for treasure. 

It's a story about magic,courage,wisdom, determination, love ,taking risks , about listening to our hearts, holding onto our dreams and following our destinies. 

 

As Santiago embarks on a journey of self discovery, we are left with one important question ; do we do what it takes to follow our dreams? 

 

 

With its thought provokingly beautiful quotes, it's a book which will inspire and uplift your soul.

The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho

SHREYA KHUBBER,

MIND TREE SCHOOL[9th]

This wonderful book from the author of the alchemist succeeds to convince the reader to question himself about his life. It is a perfect amalgamation of philosophy and literature. The story explains about the great history of the various pilgrimages of Europe as the protagonist is on a quest to find his miraculous sword. It defines the universe as our own different world. Reading this novel can give us our ultimate reason for reason for existence.

The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho

'Because , wherever your heart is thats where you'll find your treasure.'

Well said.it's not just a book but a beautiful work of art and inspiration! As we grow up we usually dismiss some of our dreams as childhood fantasies.we forget about our actual goal and pusue careers which others expect us to, because thats what everybody does.Recognising personal legends, being able to talk to trees , making wind personal companion, connecting to the core of earth, no fears, listening to your heart, moving in your own way, direct contact with god and a feeling of oneness.yes, thats what Santiago does! Santiago's journey surely taught to believe you can do that and you are the only one who has the spirit inside! Reading alchemist brought me to the right path, the path which leads to my dreams.alchemist has crossed the boundary of books and has taken a life of its own , creating a movement across the world.It is truly a maktub for paulo coelho to  write this book and share it with the world!and above that it was a fabulous experiance reading the alchemist.

Alchemist in the Shadows (Cardinals Blades 2)
Alchemist in the Shadows (Cardinals Blades 2) - Pierre Pevel An alternate Europe, where dragons and magic are real, the Cardinals Blades look to uncover a plot against the throne.

Excellent swashbuckling adventure as plots within plots unfold and the Blades take on different organisations that may be involved in the mysterious plot.

The fantasy/magical part of the background is not overpowering and never gets in the way when a good swordfight across 17th century Paris will move the story along.
