The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho Review

“The Alchemist” by the Brazilian author Paulo Coelho is one of my favourite fantasy kind of books, it somehow reminds me of “The Little Prince” in the sense that it basically tells us to follow our dreams even if it doesn’t seem like the right time to do so, becaO Alquimistause it will never seem to be the right time.

On the other hand, I found the plot to be a little weak, despite having everything to be a great one. It was filled with magic and a kind of obscure type of philosophy.

In this book, Paulo Coelho uses a great deal of symbolic language therefore the message ends up being more intriguing and touching our hearts in a different way as if was written in “contemporary” language.

Anyway, this book demonstrates how easy life can be and I’ll never regret to have read it.
