The Alchemist!!

29 Sep


  Book by Paulo Coelho..Which is a mixture of emotional feelings .Story about a sheperd’s Dream..He followed the words of his heart and finally found the treasure,to put in a better way “He lived for the treasure rather than seeking for it”.Author  followed his own style to make the book interesting one..He also included the Koran sayings..Characters Old king,Camel driver,alchemist,crystal shop owner all played good role.His idea of including Omens rather than god is appreciable!!

Words by camel driver, “To die tomorrow was no worse than dying on another day”

“Maktub” by crystal shop owner,which means “Everything has been written by the same hand” and “Don’t think about what you have left behind ” by alchemist was touchable!!


Coming to santiago’s(sheperd) love with Fatima in desert..Author used good poetric “One is loved because one is loved , No reason is needed for loving”..His valuable message to his readers according to me is,

                  “Learn through journey”

                  “When you really want something deep from your heart,all the universe conspires in will help    you to achieve it”

                  “Try to follow your heart to reach your destiny”

Hats off to author for such a wonderful book!!
