THE ALCHEMIST (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 194

A novel rich in metaphors and symbolism, The Alchemist is a story based on the adventures of a young shepherd boy, who, upon deciding to follow his prophetic dreams, sets on a treasure hunt. This journey introduces him to some remarkable people who leave an indelible and profound mark on him.

Summary Of The Book

The Alchemist was first published in 1988. The protagonist of the story, a young Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago, is plagued with recurring dreams, wherein a mysterious child urges him to look for buried treasure at the base of the Egyptian pyramids. Determined, he leaves Spain and heads towards Egypt. En route, he meets the King of Salem, a man named Melchizedek. Melchizedek introduces Santiago to the concept of a ‘Personal Legend’ or a personal map or a quest that guides him to what his heart truly desires.

While attempting to cross the Sahara desert on the way to Egypt, he joins a caravan which is driven by an Englishman who is aspiring to be an alchemist. During a stop over in Al-Fayoum, Santiago meets Fatima, a young girl of exceeding beauty who steals his heart. He asks her to marry him, but she declines saying that she will do so only once he has found the treasure he seeks. In the Saharan oasis of Al-Fayoum, Santiago meets a 200 year old alchemist who decides to accompany him on his expedition. He imparts wisdom and valuable knowledge to Santiago, who eventually understands why the supposed treasure keeps evading him.

Having sold over 65 million copies worldwide, The Alchemist is marked by its profound simplicity, the easy flow of the story, and the poignant moral it tries to teach the reader, that worldly possessions and extravagance are immaterial when compared to finding your own ‘Personal Legend’.

Very Motivational & Life Transforming.

It's a fable about a person who wants to turn his dream into reality.
The book describes everything in story form, which is needed to turn one's goal or dream into reality.
The story is written in very simple words and is very interesting.
I completed the entire book in just 10 hours and I remained influenced by the story for about a week. And I'll remain influenced by its teachings for my lifetime.

The book teaches you few of the following things:
a) When you want something, the entire universe conspires to help you achieve it.
b) Nothing in the world comes for free.
c) God always comes in s

The ultimate guide to being fulfilled..

To start with I have to say that though i am an avid reader but i hadn't read any serious novels before this one.
Only Chetan Bhagat was the one i managed to complete.
After reading this and if you are able to implement its teachings, your life will change completely.

This book is not easy to start reading. I myself read the first few pages a few times and never went on. Once you read 30 to 50 pages, you will start appreciating the book. For those saying the story was not worth it have failed to completely understand the book.
This is not meant to be a one night read. Its something you need t

Your heart leads to where your treasure lies

Santiago, a sheperd boy, has the same dream twice. He sees treasure hidden near the pyramids of Egypt. He then embarks on a journey to find the treasure and fulfill his destiny. Along his way are many ups and downs. He is robbed of all his savings, is led off track, desires to quit his quest, finds companionship and love, and learns to trust his heart. He learns to understand the 'language of the universe', 'langusge of the dessert', language of the wind' and 'the soul of the world'. That's not something I can describe here...it's something that can be understood- but not put into words.

Scintillating

I purchased the alchemist with certainly no prejudices in mind, other than the fact that it is targeted at readers constantly interested in “self-improvement”.
When I was going through the Alchemist at one of the book stores it said that The alchemist opened the eyes of the editors and that reading the alchemist was like waking up to a morning lit by the sun. Crass-I tell you. It is no such thing.
But certainly the Alchemist is a book written many years back in the 1988 in a foreign language was translated into a English. It initially sold only a few copies and it was only after some marketin

great graphics and thts it...

forst of all.. let me tell you i havent bought this from flipkart. i bought it from airport to pass my time.

finished in just 1.5 hours. amazing graphics. if you are a fan of comics and also some good books this book will satisfy both the urges.

but yes, the story has gone through axes at some parts.

so if you have never read the original text version of 'the alchemist' and want to see what is it about. go through this in fun style.but its like trailor of whats there in teh text version.

Awesommme !

This is an awesome book...one of the books by Paulo Coehlo which I have reread multiple times. It sort of helps you restore faith n hope when things dont seem to fall in place :) ! I can also relate the message in this book to the one in "The Secret". Both books talk about following your dream, asking the universe for what you really want and having the elements of the universe conspire to make things work for you !
