Yesterday night I was searching for a new book to read in my shelf, I found my collection edition of Paulo Coelho's books and it was there for six months. I thought it's time for it. I picked one book among five and it was this. The book is thicker than the others so i thought it was easy to finish early. When I read the book info on the back cover i thought it should be a good experience but, as i read the book I told to myself "What the hell this book was doing in my shelf for past six month". I was so stupid to have a golden book like this with me for months and not touched it. It is - I don't have any words for it - the best book i have ever touched. If you are a book lover or if you are not this doesn't matter here, you must have to read this book in this life...

About the book :

          The Alchemist is a novel by Paulo Coelho first published in the year 1988. Originally written in Portuguese by its Brazilian-born author, it has been translated into at least 56 languages as of September 2012. An allegorical novel, The Alchemist follows a young Andalusian shepherd named Santiago in his journey to Egypt, after having a recurring dream of finding treasure there.
The book has gone on to become an international bestseller. According to AFP, it has sold more than 30 million copies in 56 different languages, becoming one of the best-selling books in history and winning the Guinness World Record for most translated book by a living author.

this book is soo epic that I believe I can read it atleast once a year !!...it is soo uplifting to know that what you search for in life is usually right there waiting beneath your eyes to be found !!

You have said very true thing. Every book lover must read this book. Though I don't like to read any book twice, I have read this book so many times and each time I read it, I find something new.
