©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]

This was pretty good overall. A very inspirational message that everyone can understand and relate to.
I have read it in 2 languages and listened to this version 3 times. Jeremy Irons is amazing. I'm a Paulo Coelho fan, so for me it's easy to love the book. Many critique his beliefs and accuse him of using God, religion and or spirituality too much. I'm not a religious person, yet I enjoy his points of view and it's abundance doesn't bother me one bit. It's an emotional roller-coaster that ends with a soft kiss. Enjoy :)
