#35: The Alchemist


The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho tells a story of a boy named Santiago and his journey to follow his dream. After dreaming of finding a treasure near the pyramids, he gives up the life of a shepard boy in Spain to literally follow his dream of finding that treasure. Along the way Satiago meets many people and learns more than he ever could have imagined about the world. He is challenged to follow omens and trust his heart by many of the people he encounters along the way. In the end of the story it is an Alchemist who helps him discover how to complete his journey and offers support and wisdom to never give up on his dream. Coelho, a Brazilian author, tells a beautiful and mystical story with positive message about following dreams. It was enjoyable to read and I can understand how it became an international bestseller.
