Why should you read it?

“Every blessing ignored becomes a curse.”

This book will go down as my favorite of all time. It has been used a reference point as well as a reminder that life is a constant journey and sometimes what you become on the journey is just as important as the destination.

-DeQuan Jones

Are you willing to go on a journey in order to find your treasure? No instant gratification but grind through the detours in life to attain what you want.

-Ekpe Udoh

Synopsis

Combining magic, mysticism, wisdom and wonder into an inspiring tale of self-discovery, The Alchemist has become a modern classic, selling millions of copies around the world and transforming the lives of countless readers across generations.

Paulo Coelho's masterpiece tells the magical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure as extravagant as any ever found.

The story of the treasures Santiago finds along the way teaches us, as only a few stories can, about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, above all, following our dreams.
