©1988 Paulo Coelho; (P)2005 HarperCollins Publishers
"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]
yes yes yes. Heartwarming tale of adventure with a little mystery.
I wouldnt rename it.
Its kind of annoying to have to write stuff.
This has been my favorite book for years but I haven't had the time to read it again so I figured I'd get the audiobook to listen to while commuting. Though the story is great, the reader is too theatrical with his accents for different characters. When the wind starting conversing in this hockney Welsh accent of some sort I could barely stand it. Detracted from the lively story significantly.
