The Alchemist is a dreamy, fictional novel translated into over 80 languages & considered one of the ten best books of the 20th century. Plus, this has to be one of my favorite book covers!
It's an easy, quick read written with an enchanting simplicity. To me, this was a perfect read before bed or on a cozy, lazy Sunday at home. It feels like fantasy yet every part is a metaphor with a beautiful truth / lesson behind it.
You follow a boy on his journey across the dessert of leaving behind the comfort of what he knows to fulfill his life's purpose. He doesn't know what he'll find at the end but he continues to follow the omens & listen to his heart's guidance. He can't listen to fear or doubt or they will drown out the wise voice of his heart - which leads him to riches much different than he imagined.
It's a powerful journey of the soul that gives hope, makes you feel inspired, warms your tummy, & will make you want to listen to your heart & take action to chase your dreams.
