The Alchemist is remarkable for being a love story that renounces the idea that romantic love must be central to people‘s lives. Each person has a destiny that exists independently of others. It is the thing that you would do or be even if you had all the love and money you want.
Very Short and Cute beautiful tale... which changes something within you at subtle level 🎀
I loved this - “You must always know what it is that you want”
Must Must Must pick, if you haven‘t read yet 🍁
This is by far, one of the best books I've ever read.
It'll open up your mind about things you never thought even existed.
It's an absolute delight and it will instill in you this powerful need to realize your destiny and follow your dreams.
Some books are to be read, loved and passed on, the alchemist is one of them.
Such a book, with such wonderful description and showcase of the common man's everyday mental and spiritual thoughts, is one of a kind.
This always thrills you to the end, and when it ends, you are at such a state of mental happiness that, you feel you have discovered the elixir of life.
MUST READ AND PASS ON
“When you possess great treasures within you and try to tell others of them, seldom are you believed.“
Have I read this book three years earlier it would have made a bigger inpact on me. But today it doesn't quite hit the right heart strings.
Today I know I am one of those people whom have found that great treasure - even if people seldom believe me when I tell them.
This is quite a life changing book. It is very short but very powerful story. I would say that it is a necessity for everybody to read it.
Well that was a mistake - reading reviews after buying a book. The one saving grace is I supported our one & only Indie bookstore.
On a happy note, there is this pretty bloom.

WOW! This a small but powerful philosophical story. Truth spoken here. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
In this book, there is a quote from the alchemist that says it's not one enters men's mouth that's evil. It's what comes out of their mouths that is. That quote really struck me as something extremely important to remember. We can eat and drink and smoke, but how we treat others is how we will be remembered.
Overwritten and overhyped
This book single handedly inspired me to quit a job that I had worked at for 8 years but knew it wasn‘t for me. Travel overseas, something I had never done before to attended graduate school. And pursue my true passion of creating, writing, designing and honestly just truly living.
Finally got around to reading this novella-length fable. It was simple, lovely, and just what my soul needed today. Also a great way to meet my goal of reading at least 1 book I own each month when I have only hours left in the day 😅. #catsoflitsy
Going to work, and I‘m taking my book with me. I started reading The Alchemist yesterday. I‘m really enjoying it so far. I‘ve heard so many great things about this book so I had to read it. Right now I‘m on page 100/182. I‘ll probably finish reading it today. #ilovereading
This book started off promising, but after awhile I lost interest & had to push my way through. There seemed to be a lot of hype around this book. I‘m not entirely sure why. I feel as though this story has been done before? There were some great quotes though!
Delve into philosophy and discover the purpose of your life‘s journey. I was told my book, Race for the Sun, reminded someone of Coelho‘s, The Alchemist. Curious, because this book has been recommended to me before, I decided this must be a sign...or an omen;) I decided to purchase it on Audible for my next driving excursion, but couldn‘t wait.
The book is a parable about... read full review at www.minettelauren.com click blog
Life is too short to argue and fight. Count your blessings. Love the friends and family that are always there. Smile more often. Make the most of every day.

Some books you just can't put down. Some books you just keep saying I'll stop after this last page. 🤷🏽♂️
A book you can go back to year after year and find something new to feel enlightened.
