Book Review | Paulo Coelho - The Alchemist

What do I spy...a book out of place? OR is it a book that's so incredibly moving I arranged it to sit diagonally on the end solely to illustrate the fact the book itself stands out from the rest with its unique meaning, its moving story and its truly wonderful morals *and breathe*? 


Written by a tremendously talented author, The Alchemist tells a tale of an Andalusian shepherd who travels from Spain, his homeland, to the Egyptian desert in search of treasure. Santiago, the shepherd, passes many characters during his travels all of whom point him in the direction of his quest. The novel itself is a fairly easy read and doesn't require intense concentration as such. Quite simply, the story is a testament to the important of listening to our hearts and essentially following our dreams, despite obstacles we may come across along the way. 
The book has been translated into many different languages due to its great success and is a favourite among many celebrities!
