THE ALCHEMIST has been one of the finest pieces of writings that I have read and literally fell in love with it. I had the book for almost a year now and I just did not read it for no reason at all because maybe the time wasn’t right for me to understand the things it was suppose to convey.
Paulo Coelho is certainly one of the finest writers I have came across and I read the whole book in 2 days time, because it was so anticipating and amazing and you just want to know the end pretty bad. The book gives out major lessons that you need in your everyday life, but you need to give yourself a break to understand and really indulge into the important things the book tells you about.
The story consists of a shepherd from Spain who had a dream about finding a treasure. He was from a family where he was ought to live like his father and anyone before them, but he has decided to become Shepherd so that he can explore the world, that’s when he sees the dream, meets a king, find out about omens, true love that requires sacrifices in the middle of Egypt and coming in contact with an alchemist who teaches him a lot along the way and make him the man who has discovered himself as a different man with a lot of learnings and knowing different perspective of himself.
But does he finds the treasure, what exactly is the treasure, was he greedy in the pursuit of it? Was he able to live a life with his true love?
