book of goddess
Inspiring, insightful, deep
Any other book where someone goes on an epic, philosophical journey - The Odyssey? Siddhartha? Ishmael?
I took this book with me on my trip solo to a clothing optional resort in Mexico. It kept me company and reminded me to be brave, courageous, step outside my comfort zone, and be true to my personal legend. So many great quotes of wisdom within. Lots of symbolism. Pay attention to omens!
What a great book. I loved it and could not believe how easily I was hooked. The reader was amazing for this audible version. The best I have heard to date.
This is remarkable in the true sense. I'm not religious but I 'd say that this speaks to the truth of life for us confused and misguided humans. A great story that I will aim to hear many times
If you're considering reading The Alchemist because you're seeking something you haven't yet found ... Here may be the map to your legend.
A most wonderful tale made ever so more wonderful by Jeremy Irons.. The characters come to life in his many voices and the richly described scenes transport the reader to the hills of Andalusia and across the sea of sands in the Sahara desert.. I look forward to my next audio book with eagerness and excitement!
I've read this book about a half dozen times at various points in my life and it never ceases to be meaningful, timely and poignant -- often in very different ways. Jeremy Irons does a fantastic job with the narration and character voices. It's perfectly paced and a wonderful listen. This title is a must have for anyone who wants to live a happier life as a better person. Absolutely charming in every way!
It was still worth the read and is quite short. I might have enjoyed reading it more than listening, because the narrator's style was a bit sleepy for me.
Having read this book almost 8 years ago, I decided to listen to it this go-round. knowing how much i enjoyed it last time, I wasn't expecting to get much new out of it, but I was wrong. This story & its insight has once again given me new perspective on this journey of life. I am grateful beyond words for his profound impact :)
