The book that made Paulo Coelho a household name, ‘The Alchemist’ is a truly rare piece of literature.
Following the journey of the young Shepherd Santiago as he follows his intuition, we traverse across Andalusia discovering and learning from the some of the most simple, yet the most profound lessons that life has to offer.
From the perspective of a boy, we relearn that which we have all forgotten – To follow our hearts.
Not only is this book a beautiful piece of poetic fiction with a touching story, it is a book that we can all learn from, and revisit to remind ourselves of the simple truths of feeling, observation, and curiosity.
…We can all learn from the Sheep and the Sand…
Give it a read if you are wandering, like Santiago.
