"[I]t's an interdenominational, transcendental, inspirational fable — in other words, a bag of wind....A message clings like ivy to every encounter; everyone, but everyone, has to put in their two cents' worth....The absence of characterization and overall blandness suggest authorship by a committee of self-improvement pundits."
by Joseph Girzone, author of Joshua,
"Abeautiful story with a pointed message for every reader."

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho continues to change the lives of its readers forever. With more than two million copies sold around the world, The Alchemist has established itself as a modern classic, universally admired.
Paulo Coelhos masterpiece tells the magical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure as extravagant as any ever found.
The story of the treasures Santiago finds along the way teaches us, as only a few stories can, about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, learning to read the omens strewn along lifes path, and, above all, following our dreams.
At last — the unabridged recording of this timeless bestseller that has sold millions. "To realize one's destiny is a person's only obligation", This quotation taken from "The Alchemist" sums up the focus of the book. The journey that life should be, is lived by a simple shepherd who finds that life's gifts lie within us all. 3 CDs.
