Synopsis

A special 25th anniversary edition of the extraordinary international bestseller, including a new Foreword by Paulo Coelho.

Combining magic, mysticism, wisdom and wonder into an inspiring tale of self-discovery, The Alchemist has become a modern classic, selling millions of copies around the world and transforming the lives of countless readers across generations.

Paulo Coelho's masterpiece tells the mystical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure. His quest will lead him to riches far different—and far more satisfying—than he ever imagined. Santiago's journey teaches us about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, of recognizing opportunity and learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, most importantly, to follow our dreams.

    The Alchemist

    This book was assigned to me for a school literature project due on the first day of school. When I first started reading the book I thought it was boring, but as I continued to read I got more and more interested in this novel. It's an amazing book that is really good for teens, teaching about destiny, and the love of life.

    Beautiful modern parable

    I first read the alchemist 15 years ago and I could not understand what all the fuss was about. Many life experiences later this story is a gift written in a lanuage that i have come to understand. I am so glad I picked it up again.

    The alchemist

    Amazing knowledge of the soul. I have wondered of my soul and it purpose and feeling anxious not knowing what I should be doing in my life. After reading this amazing journey. I'm look at my own journey through life with more understanding and excitement for what is to come. Can't wait to read another of Paulo's magical stories.

    Undecided on this one

    I thoroughly enjoyed this beautifully written tale but found it difficult to look past the religious messages to see the underlying values and thoughts expressed by Coelho. I enjoyed the story itself and thought it provoked some excellent ideas about following your dreams however I was not profoundly moved by the story as I had hoped to be. Still worth a read and I hope you get more from it than I did ;)
