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 Coelho's 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 life's path, and, above all, following our dreams.

Acclaimed illustrator Daniel Sampere brings Paulo Coelho's classic to new life in this gorgeously illustrated graphic novel adaptation.

I read this book when I was in High School and found it very inspiring. It made me dream :)

I have not read the novel as I am more of a visual person so I chose to read the graphic novel. At first, I was intrigued by the story but soon the monotony of its "philosophy" became far too apparent for me. I felt myself losing interest quickly about midway. The main character, Santiago seemed unremarkable to me as well as his journey.

sounds really good i wanna but not today

Even though I completed this story I can't say I really enjoyed it.It was a combination of fantasy and biblical.
