The story begins with Santiago, a young shephard boy from the Andalusian mo A story of a young boy searching for his personal destiney, what more could sound more interesting? If it’s not right, it’s not the end.

The profound lessons you’ll learn from this alchmistul amount to nothing more than several variations on the theme of “only the very ugly is truly beautiful, only the very stupid are really intelligent, only black is white, only up is down” etc etc.

Probably for that reason. Product details Paperback Publisher: View all comments. Not a new message at all. The issue of responsibility is also part of this book’s sexism. As per the Indian mythology, the soul never dies, it is indestructible, it only changes a body just like we change clothes.

I firmly believe that there is no fiction involved in this story of the shepherd, but this is a true expression of mysteries and realities of our life, which we never pause to discover.

I listened to the audio version, read by Jeremy Irons and loved it. Haven’t we all desired things that have turned out to not be in our best interest, or to be harmful to others? Mar 28, R. That was a joke right? Two of the central themes which were hammered in over and over again are two of my favorite world views – ones I hold very dear to my heart. There allchimistul message that this book wants to convey to us!!!


Plina de seva, evocatoare si profund umana, povestea lui Santiago este un etern indemn de a ne urma visele si de a ne asculta inima. Ironically but true, this decision about timings has thankfully not been left to us.

Was Coelho telling this straight or pulling our leg? I recommend this to everyone. Women are objects meant to be seen and valued for their beauty, there to serve you and wait around forever while you go on wild goose chases across continents in search of money?

And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams. Why should our hearts be sources of information that go ;aulo logic, doubt and reasoning? View all 16 comments.

I like the overall optimistic message of the book; that our dreams and hearts desires can lead us back to where we started, but had no idea was significant or that finding happiness through wisdom is really as simple as following your heart.

In terms of symbolisms, I like The Little Prince better. Plina de seva, evocatoare si profund umana, povestea lui Santiago este un etern indemn de a ne urma visele si de a ne asculta inima. To me, this book feeds and even encourages that misplaced ideal, and that’s a shame.

Everyone has a Personal Legend, which is life’s plan for you. A negative to this book is that it won’t appeal to everyone- its very spiritual and religious and some readers like myself are non-religious and non-spiritual and take a more ‘realist’ and sometimes ‘cynical’ with me anyway approach in achieving goals.

This is the core of the novel’s theme. May 13, Kenny rated alchimstul it voelho amazing Shelves: View all 8 comments. Extraordinarul roman al lui Paulo Coelho a inspirat milioane de cititori din intreaga lume. Yes, and those who do think about death, mostly fear it, some fear death because of the physical pain attached to it such people actually fear the pain rather than the death, I am one of them and there are some who think they do not want to die because its not time yet for them to go.


Life-changing for some, nausea-inducing for others, but far from leaving the reader indifferent, this book is a powerful one and its ongoing success well-deserved.


Its a beautiful companion, a faithful companion, the only one who will never be unfaithful to us, rest all the companions are just lesser mortals and have paaulo unfaithful at one point or other. It’s just pretty ironic that what have you looking for is in the end is just beside you right from the beginning.

Along the way he befriends many people and makes a great sum of money, while also meeting a beautiful young woman who agrees to more or less be his life-partner, Romeo and Juliet -style which is stupid in and of itself, but more on that later. Indeed Paulo Coelho is a firm believer of Internet as a new media and is the first Best-selling author to actively support online free distribution of his work.

All we have to do is be aware – to listen. Along the way, he learns ‘the Language of the World’ the ‘Soul of the World’ and discovers corlho the ‘Soul of God’ is ‘his own soul.
