But i couldn’t escape the fact that Santiago’s desert world seemed too contrived, it can not be compared to actual reality. I suppose Coelho realizes this, as he begins the book with a brief fable about Narcissus falling into the river because he loved staring at his reflection, and the river’s disappointment in this, as the river loved gazing into Narcissus’s eyes and seeing the reflection of itself.


Editura Humanitas Language: But maybe I’m older and more cynical now, or maybe it’s not cynicism so much as just seeing a reality that isn’t so mystical and black and white as Paulo Coelho’s, but in any event, I just wasn’t buying what ‘ The Alchemist ‘ was selling. Granted, I am not religious. Jeremy Irons did a great job indeed. Suffice it so say that this is a good example of portentous writing that is best avoided if your benchmark is quality literature.


Slow initial sales convinced his first publisher to drop the novel, but it went on to become one of the best selling Brazilian books of all time.

Andrew Jackson was a man known to have a lot of integrity. Another beautiful thought which I came across about death was in the novel by the author called “Confessions of a pilgrim”.

The Alchemist

He is equally present in media sharing sites such as Youtube and Flickr, offering on a regular basis achimistul only texts but also videos and pictures to his readers.

If you alchimishul, you won’t be able to talk to your heart. You can follow my reviews at http: It is at this point that he determines he has achieved a greater treasure than any he had ever dreamed of, and would go no further.

This book is very inspiring and what I really need right now to motivate myself with my everyday endeavors. Not giving heed to the concerns doubts and criticisms of others is something I believe is a major fault in modern society.

The first, who calls himself ‘the King of Salem’, advises the boy to pursue his ‘personal legend’ deepest desire. Straight out the OT.

Along the way, he learns ‘the Language of the World’ the ‘Soul of the World’ and discovers that the ‘Soul of God’ is ‘his own soul. But then Coelho basically goes on to say that that is just a roadblock in the way of real achievement, and that one should selfishly pursue their own dreams with no regard for those closest to them.

Nimeni nu stie care este comoara sau daca Santiago poate depasi obstacolele intalnite in drumul prin desert. So, in summation, here is what you should learn from The Alchemist: That one guy was right.


Yes, their days were all the same, with the seemingly endless hours between sunrise and dusk; and they had never read a book in their young lives, and didn’t understand when the boy told them about the sights of the cities.

Always moving in search of food and water, for his little friends, their hunger and thirst is all, to them. That was a joke right?

However, I am not too sure whether the author has done this purposely so as to reflect the time period, or cultural practices where this book is placed. Tells him he should pursue his dream ,”Personal Legend” The less you do to broaden your horizons, perspective, the smaller your dreams will be and poorer your quality of life – or something like that. Someone said ‘The mark of a good book is it changes every time you read it’ and this is one of those books that worked for me like that.

But I do have a question or two: In ninety days of pilgrimage the author traveled around the globe and took the famous Transiberrian train that took him to Vladivostok. During this experience Paulo Coelho launched his blog Walking the Path – The Pilgrimage in order to share with his readers his impressions. Learn more about Amazon Prime.
