  • First of all, I must say that this is one of the books which grips your whole attention and, even more, makes you think about your life in a philosophical manner...I believe it is a great book to read and I thoroughly advise every single person to read it, especially those who are interested in philosophy.

  • It's a strong story related to the reader by the omniscient narrator, told in a way reminiscent of fairy tales or spiritual texts like the Bible or Koran.

  • The Alchemist is a tale well told; it’s an enchanting parable of a young man, a dream and the obstacles he faced in order to achieve his goals...I recommend this book to anyone who is ready to face the challenge.
