The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho continues to change the lives of its readers forever. With more than two million copies sold around the world, The Alchemist has established itself as a modern classic, universally admired.
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.

    The Alchemist was a wonderful allegory. Jeremy Iron’s narration was exquisite. I am now aware of my personal legend.

    Life perspective in a narrative.

  • Adeife A.

    I thought the book was very full of imagination, however the storytelling really lacked detail and intrigue. The characters barely go through and character development and the end is underwhelming.

  • Ruusa L.

    This book was a joy to read. My 7th grade son was reading it in English class and his teacher invited the parents to read it as well....I am glad that I did. What I took away from it will be much different than my 13 year old son, but it is truly a treasure. A beautiful, simple story that tells of life's mysteries without very much pomp or circumstance...the narrator brings the story of a boy in search of his Personal Legend in a mesmerizing way. His voice is calming yet personifies each character as he reads. I've recruiting other mom's to read it and I can't wait to meet for coffee and discover their own Personal Legends.....ha! Read it, you won't regret it!
