The Alchemist

The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho At last I read it. I wasn't sure what to expect and went in blind, but it was well worth it. Reading this book, for me, was an expedition of discovery. I'll read it again and I'll recommend it without a pause. My time is limited and I can therefore not elaborate much in this review, if you can call it such. The story is about self exploration against the backdrop of a quest to find treasure. There are mystical elements, but they were written plainly and made sense philosophically. Personal Legend, indeed. I now understand why this book sold millions of copies.
