This is a ‘once upon a time’- story for young adults. He’s nice to have around, but are you really learning anything? Overall I felt that it was just fine Many people, I believe, enjoy this in a book, in the same way that they enjoy Hostess Twinkies. Maybe that it helped that I was in a different phase of life than my earlier attempts. If things have happened once which is a prerequisite for happening twice in my world they won’t happen again?!?

It is a great book. So, in summation, here is what you should learn from The Alchemist: View all 58 comments.

I read a lot of books and I can alchimistkl say this is the worst book I have ever read. Also, he talks about a stage in our journey towards realizing our dreams, where everything just goes haywire and there is everything working against us and it almost takes us to the brink of abandoning everything and just getting back to what was so familiar and comfortable i.

I enjoyed the journey and especially enjoyed the audiobook version ceolho by Jeremy Irons.

It is all about finding your Pe “when you really want something, the whole universe conspires in helping you to achieve it” This book has crossed the boundaries of books, and has taken a life of its own, creating a movement all around the globe.

If Fatima was Santiago’s treasure, that I could have gotten behind, even if it shows a good deal of contempt for the role of women in relationships beauty being the most important factor in deciding on a mate, as Santiago is struck by her beauty and immediately professes his love; Fatima more or less acquiesces immediately and pledges herself to Santiago no matter what, even if he must travel the desert forever in selfish pursuit of his own dreams, with no regard for herbecause that is something intangible that is meaningful and fulfilling, regardless of financial standing.


And not waste our beautiful life worrying about dying all the time. Consider the message in all religions.

Ironically but true, this decision about timings has thankfully not been left to us. Or maybe it was just a coincidence.

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

It is maktub that Coelho writes this book, shares it with the world, and affect so many lives. At times, it can be beneficial to go against the group, but one should first give serious consideration to the groups concerns. Taking a perilous pzulo, on camels they bought, in a large, slow moving caravanfor a desert oasis, right out of an Arabian Nights tale, the yellow sand, the glorious codlho sky, and remorseless wind, the unceasing red sun, and a frightening tribal war close by, grinds them to despair Queen Wiki can turn coelbo into nonsense and then back again before your very eyes.


Reflecting on the story a day later i started to discover its true message. Really, I did this so you don’t have to. The novel skillfully combines words of wisdom, philosophy, and simplicity of meaning and language, and this is what makes it so enchanting.

So, pauloo not take everyday as the last day of our lives and live it up. Books by Paulo Coelho. Things that happen twice will always happen again. Ul Santiago was just a Shepard boy herding a flock of sheep when he realizes that there is much more to life than sheep.
