Paulo Coehlo, Translated By Alan Clarke
The Alchemist is short, simple and profound. The idea of following your dreams is simple but in the hands of Paulo Coelho it is profound. Santiago leaves his life as an Andalusian shepherd behind to follow fate in search of his treasure. Only after many adventures and when his journey has come full circle does he discover what the true treasure is. The Alchemist is uplifting and reaffirms all that is truly good in life, a true fable—timeless in it’s themes.
