"The Alchemist" is full of treasures...a must read!! Jeremy Iron's interpretation is excellent. [I wish he did more book narration]
Yes but not translated
Yes in its original language or Spanish. Otherwise its a book without a soul
Yes read the original again
Some books just don't work translated. this is one of them.
I would not consider the audio edition to be better but superior in terms of narration and ease.
Being a busy person myself I can now say that I went to bed with Jeremy Irons - narrating this wonderful fable and putting me to sleep.
I liked the metaphors presented in the story, the wisdom and the choice in us all.
No I haven't however I would love to listen to other books he narrates. I loved it!
I am hooked to Audio Books now. Can't get enough and I have a diverse library to get me from the self development to a world of fantasy and dreams.
A fable I will always remember - one I need to listen to again and will pass on to others. The thought of seeking my personal legend is a life-changer. Jeremy Irons is the perfect voice to hear this inspiration in my mind over and over again.
“Seek you personal legend
I have read the hard copy and was stoked to find it as an audio. It's an inspiring and easy book to immerse the self in. I will gladly listen to this again and again!
Expression and feeling.
Many great messages brilliantly woven into a timeless story. I have listened to it a few times and each time pick up new lessons to ponder. As your life changes a another listen will reveal more secrets to you. A must listen and re-listen for the novice and the advanced spiritual adventurer.
The story should have enchanted me. It's told like a fairy tale. It's full of interesting situations and characters. It is beautifully written. But for some reason, I just wasn't that into it. Jeremy Irons should have been able to make it gripping, but--for me, anyway--it just kind of fell flat.
Top of the list
When the boy travels to Egypt and meets the Alchemist.
When he meets the King and he gets the two stones for fortell his future.
His love for the girl in the village and his love for his sheep.
I loved hearing the reader, whose voice is so well known and carries the book to greater heights.
