The Alchemist: one of my favorites and what I love about this book; It will make you realize that no matter where you are, who you are and old you are, to just follow your dreams. Than to live in regret of not knowing what could’ve been and not doing anything about it. Of course we all make mistakes along the way and that’s the beauty of it all.

Overall, a very good book. Very artistic and introspective, and it felt like I needed to digest the material more as it was very dense. Very absorbing read.

Really enjoyed it: noticed a number of negative reviews and to each their own. The basic subplot is to be happy and follow your dreams. Surely a message that harms none?

Everyone is an alchemist, in that they have the ability to transform their own lives.
