Not enough words to describe how much I love this book
I'm afraid that I will not do this book justice. It's been a few years since I read the Alchemist, but it stands as one of my all time favorite books.
The Alchemist is the kind of story that makes you want to wake up in the morning and conquer the world (in a humanitarian super human way), it's inspirational. I should reread it. I've also heard one of the audio versions, but do not recommend the audio version. It's an international best seller.
Definitely read this book, but do not listen.
Paulo Coelho is one of my favorite authors. I've read almost all of his books. The narration I heard was not that great. It's a short book, pick up a paperback copy.
