    About the Book

    Rich in metaphors and symbolism, The Alchemist follows the adventures of a young Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago. Plagued by recurring dreams wherein a mysterious child urges him to look for buried treasure at the base of the Egyptian pyramids, Santiago sets out on a treasure hunt. His journey leads him to Melchizedek, the king of Salem, who introduces him to the concept of a ‘Personal Legend’ that guides him to what his heart truly desires. While attempting to cross the Sahara desert, Santiago joins a caravan driven by an Englishman who happens to be an aspiring alchemist. During a stop over in Al-Fayoum, Santiago meets Fatima and falls in love with her. He asks her to marry him, but she declines the offer saying that she will do so only once he has found the treasure he seeks. In this oasis, he meets a 200-year old alchemist who decides to accompany him on his expedition. During the course of their journey, the alchemist imparts wisdom and knowledge to Santiago, and he eventually understands why the supposed treasure he set out to find keeps evading him.

    About the Author

    Born on 24 August 1947, Brazilian lyricist and novelist Paulo Coelho is best known for his novel The Alchemist. Even at a young age, Paulo always knew that he was meant to become a writer. In fact, when a young Paulo told his mother about his wish to become a writer and expressed his unwillingness to follow a traditional path, his parents committed him to a mental institution. But, that didn’t stop Paulo Coelho, and he went on to write best-selling novels, such as The Winner Stands Alone, The Devil and Miss Prym and The Witch of Portobello, among others.

    One simply cannot live without reading this book.

    To be frank I am still in hangover of this book, given its been 5 days that I've finished it. There isn't a day that goes by where I don't spend at least 30 mins figuring out why I am here and what is it that I really want to devote my entire life to.

    Whole story short, you must read if you care about yourself and want to live or at least wish to live your life on your own terms.

    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 univ...

    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 faile...
