This is the story of Santiago, a shepherd boy who dreams of traveling the world and discovering treasures, and is courageous enough to walk in the direction of his desires. In order to realize the best that his destiny has to offer, he travels from his home in Spain, through the markets of Tangiers, and into the great Egyptian desert. He gets duped, experiences love, loses and makes money, learns a different language, meets different people, finds himself in pleasant and not-so- pleasant situations. His journey is full of adventure and lessons, while he also finds the privilege of meeting a king, a desert woman and an alchemist, each adding to his life new turns and perceptions.




Even though I managed to finish The Alchemist in matter of few hours, truth is, this book probably gave me more to think about, than some of the larger books I have read and I love that fact.
Overall it is an interesting book, which inspires you to follow your dreams, no matter what. And anything which can manage to do that, is worth its weight in gold, and then some!
