Paulo Coelho’s “The Alchemist”

RATING: 5/5 stars

GENRE: Quest, Destiny and Wanderlust.

REVIEW: This book is about a boy who has embarked upon a venture in search of a treasure he has staunch faith in. It’s like a theatrical play which makes no sense at the start and has you intrigued for what will happen but the end makes all sense. The dense fog of dreams, hope, faith, betrayal, diligence, love, foresight and wisdom all clears up at the very end. It not only teaches you how you are bound to be translating God’s signs and omens but also that deciphering them is why we exist. Everything within our self is his way of speaking to us, it is just a matter of will, if we want to hear Him. A brilliant use of words, this novel. If you are lost, disappointed in chasing that one thing and distorted in your idea of who you are and need the divine light to illuminate your path…read it, my friend.
