I understood the story and what it was trying to say the first time, but every time I read the book there was a new meaning that emerged out of the story as you compare it to the events of life.
It was extremely inspirational to someone like me looking for hope and inner guidance. If you're thinking about it go ahead and read it. You won't regret it.
Listened to it all at once.
What an amazing story on how we should live our lives and perceive the world and to trust in ourselves and in our heart. The way I view the world and events around me will never be the same.
Jeremy Irons is a wonderful narrator of the story.
You want answers? Then recieve this book with an open mind and the questions of your life will start to lose their wonder, but the meaning of your life with shine with a bit more clarity.
This "book" took me away and inspired me to buy the hardcopy. What a wonderful story with so many inspirational and meaningful points. I can't wait to read and/or hear it again. Also, this version is wonderfully narrated.
This book came to me at the most crucial moment in my life! It followed every step of my own personal journey to discover my greater purpose & potential in life! the book spoke to me as if it knew I needed to hear it at this very moment!
This is probably the best audio book I've listened to thus far.
You can't be sure whether this is a novel, a motivational piece of writing, or both. You certainly will ponder over various aspects of your life as you listen to it.
Everyone should listen or read the Alchemist.
