The Alchemist

Yesterday afternoon I curled up in the big leather chair in our den and read Paulo Coelho's wonderful book, "The Alchemist".  My mom gave me this book for Christmas, and she was anxious for me to read it so she could discuss it with me.

I must say I do very much like this story, which has been translated from the Portugese.  It has been translated into 60 different languages and has sold many millions of copies worldwide.  I understand why---it is a story of faith, imagination, adventure, love, hope, fear, nature and spiritual conquest.  Yes, I cried.

I recommend this book to anyone who loves a great story with true meaning.


  1. I can't wait to read this! It sounds like my kind of book!

  2. Sounds an interesting book to read. Thanks for sharing.
