©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]
Love you Jesus ,, thank you Eli for giving me the chance to listen to a masterpiece.. Everyone who is reading my review just go ahead and don't hesitate to listen to this masterpiece
The alchemist has been my go to book when I'm seeking an escape. Coelho writes eloquently and efficiently. Delivering a deeply engaging narrative in a compact form.
I was pleasantly surprised with this and can't wait to read his other works. It struck me of a read like Sidhartha and I'm thinking going going back to read that now as I haven't read it since high school. I'm sure this is only the first of many times I'll be reading this
