The best book of all times
This is one of those few books which has the power to make a very deep and profound change in anyone's life.
Many people who do don't have much knowledge on literature will scream that this book is over hyped and has bad prose, but the beauty of this book is in the simple language with which it tells us about how anyone who follows what their hearts say, can find great joy and happiness.
Also, to those talking about bad prose, first be properly informed. This is actually translated from the Portuguese language, the native language of the author.
Once again, I would say this is one of those books you should not die without having read. Its that good.
“When I wrote The Alchemist, I was trying to understand the reason for the existence of life. Instead of writing a philosophical treatise, I decided to converse with the child inside my soul.
To my surprise, this child was living inside millions of people around the world. With this book I wanted to share with my readers the questions which, precisely because they don't have an answer, make life a great adventure”. - Paulo Coelho
