THE ALCHEMIST by 'Paul Coelho' --- A Review
" Its the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting"
I am largely inspired now by this book called 'The Alchemist'. Its a great story. Its all about following your heart.
Every few decades a book is publishes that changes the lives of the readers forever. This book by Paul Coelho is one of them. It is a 'modern classic' actually. It 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 into the Egyptian Desert, where a fateful encounter with the alchemist awaits him. This story teaches us, as only a few can, about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, learning to read the omens strewn along life's path and above all following your dreams.
I liked the book very much. It is truly a book which can change ones outlook about their life. It contains so many inspiring messages that you would like to 'bookmark' in your mind forever. The story has an excellent ending that comes unexpected. The books tell about various spiritual concepts like 'Language of the World'.
Now that I've read this wonderful story, I've decided to follow my heart always because...
" When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you achieve it."
It gives me hope and puts a smile on my face...
