Book Review: The Alchemist by: Paulo Coelho

 

This book is not completely or totally based around religion or spirituality, rather than the journey to understanding what it means to you. It is a marvelous story that accounts a young man, Santiago, who does not want to fulfill his father’s wish for him to be a priest.

Santiago encounters various characters that each represent something very prominent and essential in not only his life, but of life in general. They each give him a piece of the puzzle that ultimately leads Santiago into realizing the truth he knew all along. That may sound cheesy but this story is really worth the read. It really makes you think about who you are and who you are meant to be in this world.
