A Great Story, That Gives You a Great Feeling

by A Teacher on 8/25/2008

I was told to read this book by a few of my friends, although I was unsure what to think of it at first I still tried it. I was pleasantly surprised by the time that I finished this book. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone, and I am going to have this book as mandatory reading for my students when I can't get it approved. Read More

Annotation Paulo Coehlo's enchanting story of a boy who goes on a quest after a tantalizing dream will warm the heart of every type of seeker. Told in a simple, engaging style, this tale of an Andalusian shepherd begins as a search for a treasure which, according to his dream, lies hidden beneath the Egyptian pyramids. As young Santiago pursues his goal, he encounters a cast of colorful characters, including an educated Englishman, a camel driver, and an actual alchemist, who open his thoughts and dreams to deeper, more valuable riches of the heart and spirit. The new reader will understand why this fable has had numerous devoted fans since its first publication in 1988 (in Brazil) and discover untold treasures and great truths by taking part in the journey of Coehlo's charming Santiago.
Editors Note My Heart Is Afraid that it will have to suffer," the boy told the alchemist one night as they looked up at the moonless sky."Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams."Every few decades a book is published that changes the lives of its readers forever. The Alchemist is such a book. With over a million and a half copies sold around the world, The Alchemist has already established itself as a modern classic, universally admired. Paulo Coelho's charming fable, now available in English for the first time, will enchant and inspire an even wider audience of readers for generations to come.The Alchemist is the magical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure as extravagant as any ever found. From his home in Spain he journeys to the markets of Tangiers and across the Egyptian desert to a fateful encounter with the alchemist.The story of the treasures Santiago finds along the way teaches us, as only a few stories have done, about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, above all, following our dreams.
