The Alchemist (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 582

The international bestseller about a shepherd boy who learns how to live his dreams.
Paulo Coelho’s enchanting novel has inspired a devoted following around the world, and this tenth anniversary edition, with a new introduction from the author, will only increase that following. This story, dazzling in its powerful simplicity and inspiring wisdom, is about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of a treasure buried in the Pyramids. Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king, and an alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest. No one knows what the treasure is, or if Santiago will be able to surmount the obstacles along the way. But what starts out as a journey to find worldly goods turns into a discovery of the treasures found within. Lush, evocative, and deeply humane, the story of Santiago is an eternal testament to the transforming power of our dreams and the importance of listening to our hearts.

Nothing Exceptional

Barring the popularity of the author, there's nothing exceptional in the book. Pursuing dreams is a quality in many of us. We have seen many examples of rags to riches .. business tycoons who have risen from small villages and poor families. This fable .. may be, just shows the mirror to the ignoran… (View complete review)

Scintillating Work By Paulo Coelho

"When you really want something, the whole universe conspires in helping you achieve it"
The whole fable circumnavigate in the vicinity of the above adduce."The Alchemist" is an audacious and cogitative story (written as fable) of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy,who like all of us, is in search for his destiny.

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 fr…

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 …

The Alchemist is Okay; not great

This book was okay. I think the message of this book is follow your dreams. I liked it; but I am not sure that I would recommend it. I enjoyed the imagery of The Alchemist. The story moved a bit slowly. It wasn't a page turner, but it wasn't a tough read either. The Alchemist is a nice fable;but, that's it.

First to review

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's something that can be understood- but not put into words.

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 …

Extremely Overrated

This book is so overrated it is looking overrated in the rearview mirror.Complete philosophical nonsense.Feels like every other self help book crap.Please dont waste your money and time buying this.Would have given this zero rating if there was an option for that.

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 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 !
