Summary from Goodreads:

Combining magic, mysticism, wisdom, and wonder into an inspiring tale of self-discovery, The Alchemist has become a modern classic, selling millions of copies around the world and transforming the lives of countless readers across generations.

Paulo Coelho's masterpiece tells the mystical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure. His quest will lead him to riches far different—and far more satisfying—than he ever imagined. Santiago's journey teaches us about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, recognizing opportunity and learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, most importantly, following our dreams.

I love diving into a book that is unknown to me and seeing where it will take me. This read was an adventure unlike any other. The author took me to a world that was vivid and full of life. The whole story was one big lesson, but I didn't feel like I was being taught.

Paulo Coelho has a wonderful writers voice and creative palette. I didn't expect to love this read as much as I did.
