    Paulo Coelho's enchanting novel has inspired a devoted following around the world. This story, dazzling in its simplicity and wisdom, is about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of treasure buried in the Pyramids. Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king, and an Alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest.

    Joanna says: "A quest for dreams come true"
    "A marvellous Fable"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Alchemist to be better than the print version?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the metaphors presented in the story, the wisdom and the choice in us all.


    Have you listened to any of Jeremy Irons’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't however I would love to listen to other books he narrates. I loved it!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definately Yes!


    Any additional comments?

    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.
