Why I love this book...
When ever I'm asked 'what is your favourite book?' the cover of this book immediately flashes before my eyes. The main reason for that is the profound impact this book has had, and continues to have, on my life.
I call this a 'magical book' when I describe it to others, because I genuinely believe it is. I have read it many (many!) times, and every single time I feel like I'm reading a completely different story. The words are the same, of course, but I am different - and I discover something new every time I open the front cover.
This is an invitation to answer The Call, to start walking the path that your soul is asking you to take... and be open to the discoveries and adventures along the way.
The Alchemist: A Fable About Following Your Dream
by Paulo Coehlo
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 mystical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure. His quest will lead him to riches far different—and far more satisfying—than he ever imagined. Santiago's journey teaches us about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, of recognizing opportunity and learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, most importantly, to follow our dreams.
