A Review - The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
Although this book has been out for many years and has many, many reviews, I’m going to talk about it anyway.
This book is famous for a reason. It speaks to a soul in a way that few books can. Written as a story – more, a myth or legend – it is really one of the best ‘self-help’ books probably ever written.
A shepherd who feels like he is already following his dreams of traveling is given a choice; an unknown treasure or continue along his present course and not fulfill his Path of Life. Intrigued, he decides to sell all he has and go for the gold – literally. Along the way, he loses it all. But he gains knowledge, companionship, and most importantly a belief in himself and how to be at one with his heart.
This is a book that has inspired me as well as given me hope for the future. It is a book that will remain on my shelf for years to come.
Don't give up, keep putting one foot in front of the other, and allow yourself to realize your dreams.
