The Alchemist is a beautiful book by an Brazilian author named Paulo Coelho. The book is full of beautiful quotes and philosophies, and that makes this book really 'beautiful'. The protagonist of the novel is a sheperd named Santiago from Andalusia, and an Alchemist follows later over the story.
The boy travels around following his dream and meets the Alchemist with the Philosopher's Stone and the Elixir of Life, and the story gets even more interesting. The story of 'searching the treasure elsewhere and then finding it in our doorsteps' suggests the capability of this well renowned author, Paulo Coelo.
This book is an international best seller with over 65 million books sold worldwide and has been translated into 72 languages. This makes us wonder why this book is so famous and everyone who read it liked the book. It is because of the Author, the protagonists and the story combined together that makes this book the best. I liked the book mainly because of the wonderful quotes like, "And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it."
There are just few people left in the world to read this book, hope you won't be one of them.
