My Thoughts on the Alchemist
The Alchemist is one of the most inspirational books that I have ever read. It teaches
readers how to follow their dreams and to never give up. The book was written by Paulho
Coelho, and it sold millions of copies worldwide. The New York Times said "This Brazilian
wizard makes books disappear from stores."
The Alchemist is basically about a boy named Santiago. His dream is to travel the world,
which led him into getting the job of a Sheppard. One day he has a dream that a child tells him
that he must travel to the pyramids and obtain a valuable treasure. He sets out on his journey to
Africa, and enters a whole new world. He is then faced by a series of events that teach him how
life really is, and how he can connect with the soul of the world.
I recommend everyone to read The Alchemist, for it is truly inspirational. There
are a lot of dreams we had as children that we gave up on. It is not too late to accomplish them.
This book will make you want to get up and accomplish all the things that you forgot about. I
was truly inspired, and I am sure you will too.
