a simple story of living life to its fullest
was told by someone very close to me (Lauren Mara Freiman) that this was one of her favorite books of all time. I finally read it and completely understand why she was so captured by the book. It's a book that belongs in every persons personal library. It's meant to be read and re-read over various times in ones life. It reminds one to stay the course and live life happily, going for what you really want out of life. I really loved the way the author took a simple story into something that has truly been explained in so many complex ways. My grandfather, Jose Antonio Armijo, was a sheepherder--and so, I took the story to heart.
Listening to this book was a real great experience. Many a times I could relate it to my life - positive omens and how to understand and take advantage of them. A well narrated audiobook.
"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.
Be the master of your fate; the captain of your soul.
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.
