"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]
I come back to this book at least once a year and every time take with me fresh energy, new hopes, and a soul. Lessons are all over the story for those who have the time to learn them in silence. Thank you audibles and to the narrator for narrating it so beautifully and calmly.
The Alchemist provided insight and guidance for our spiritual journey. While as human beings we are all on the journey to experience our personal legend.
If you have someone that likes philosophy but is bored by it. This book is perfect it presents personal development philosophy in an entertaining manner. Also the narrator was phenomenal!!! Loved it
Narrator was perfectly suited for this book. I can't believe I hadn't discovered this book until now. It's by far one of my favorite all time books now and I plan to listen again and again. Incredible story filled with so many nuggets of truth and beauty.
