The Alchemist is the book that helped to bring Brazilian author Paulo Coelho to the mainstream.
When we opened CLASS Bookstore, one of the books that I knew that we needed to have on our [digital] shelves is this one. Set in a not-so-distant past, Santiago is the son of a shepherd, who has a dream that sets him on a journey to a land, far away from his humble home. Probably its most famous quote is the following phrase: "[W]hen you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it."
Beautiful sentiment. Beautiful story. Look for the character, Melchizedek. He is my favorite.
By the way, we also have the graphic novel version, for those who are more visual, like myself.
