APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Brazilian novelist Paulo Coelho’s international bestseller centers on an Andalusian shepherd who travels far and wide in search of elusive treasure, encountering characters who help him understand his purpose. Lovely and unadorned, The Alchemist is a concise fable born out of the author’s deep-rooted belief that following our dreams is the key to discovering our personal destiny and living a fulfilling life.

Never read the book but just wanted to say hi
Worst book ever written
Don't waste your money. This is a poorly plagiarized story. If your going to rewrite a story, at least take the time to make it better! Anyone who thinks this book helped them, must have been pretty lame before reading it. This is the worlds first placebo book..
A must read for those yearning to follow their dreams.
One of the most inspirational short reads I’ve read in a long time. A definite must for those struggling with finding the voice of their heart and following their dreams.
