"The story has the comic charm, dramatic tension and psychological intensity of a fairy tale, but it's full of specific wisdom as well, about becoming self-empowered, overcoming depression, and believing in dreams." (Publishers Weekly)
"Yareli Arizmendi spins this marvelous tale of exotic adventure....[He] makes us feel the pain and joy of Santiago, the poor shepherd boy, as he tries to decide whether to seek a larger fortune or stay in the security of his job. Exuding softness and pathos, the narrator reminds that us most people who are unhappy failed to follow their dreams when young." [AudioFile]

This book is simply remarkable. Over the course of my life I've given away dozens and dozens of come and have never seen it fail to have the same impact on others, as it had on me
This is a wonderfully inspiring tale about pursuing life purpose and dreams, certainly a book to revisit again and again. The delivery by Jeremy Irons is impeccable and unmatchable, truly an experience I find myself mimicking when recounting the book to friends.
I've heard about this book for many years but never bothered to get it myself. However after years of putting it off I decided to listen to the audio book and it was a wonderful surprise.
