Book Review | The Alchemist

This book truly took me by surprise when I began reading it. I wasn’t sure if I would like it and had even contemplated on not reading it at all. It was in chapter 2 that I began to see the point of this book.

This is a great allegory of a man was challenged to find out what the meaning of his life was. So often, we go through the very same steps as the main character, Santiago. This is a tale of a young man who fought the forces of deception, discouragement, matters of the heart, and so much more. The author allows the reader to come along on this journey with great detail and life lessons for the reader. Santiago was once a shepherd and dreamt dreams that would lead him to his destiny. With the help of a king, he would learn great wisdom and allow him to walk alongside many other characters. I don’t want to ruin it for you…grab this book today!

 This book is listed in multiple book lists of Life Changing Books.

  1. It is my favourite book by my favourite author! You should definitely read his other books like Veronica decides to die, if you haven’t read it yet. And I honestly liked your review too.
