I’m not an enthusiastic reader, but I tried late to read more books than before. I do not believe the problem for me is to read a book, but to take the step to read one. Reading is important because it helps to develop yourself and stimulate your mind. Recently I read “The Alchemist” after a long time. After a friend recommended it, I read it perfectly. The book is lovely and a masterpiece of inspiration.

Review About The Book “The Alchemist”
The Alchemist is a fantastic book and the plot is lovely. Word quality is impeccable, full of wisdom and theory. I enjoyed it completely. The tale is very enchanting and has an optimism that I feel is extremely important in our lives. The book shows that your path to your destiny is as significant as the destination itself.
I love how the book highlights the importance of faith, hope, and spirituality in an ordinary boy’s life. This book speaks to everyone, I guess because we all have dreams and we want someone to tell us that they can come true. All in all, “The Alchemist” is a very thrilling novel that deserves room in all bookshops.
Quotes From The Book “The Alchemist”
“One’s Personal Legend (destiny) is what you have always wanted to accomplish. Everyone, when they are young, knows what their Personal Legend is. At that point in their lives, everything is clear and everything is possible. They are not afraid to dream and to yearn for everything they would like to see happen to them in their lives. But, as time passes, a mysterious force begins to convince them that it will be impossible for them to realize their Personal Legend whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do when you really want something, it’s because that desire originated in the soul of the universe. It’s your mission on earth.” Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
