A special 25th anniversary edition of the extraordinary international bestseller, including a new Foreword by Paulo Coelho.

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, of recognizing opportunity and learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, most importantly, to follow our dreams.

    This book truly makes you realize your potential. Also how hard you have to want something in order to achieve it. What’s meant to be yours will be yours! There are no obstacles only road bumps. ;)
  • Something I really needed

    By Lucas Champagne
    This book makes you think about things that you have only felt but have never put names to.
  • Much ado about nothing

    By Akvelocity13
    Overrated, fake-deep book (a relative of "Milk and Honey"). Genre fiction masquerading as literature. Your time would be better spent with Pynchon, Atwood, DeLillo, Wallace, etc.
  • Great book
