The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

This was an impulse selsction at the library. I quickly picked it up on my way out….probably someone had just returned it. Anyway…….

It toook a long time before I really got into the story and really wanted to know what happens. Some of the ideas were repeated throughout so as to make a dent in my memory. This book is wierd in that when I think of it I do not think of the plot or picture the protagonist. I instead keep remembering the core message that I got which was that nothing ventured nothing gained and that the universe conspires to help you when you are seeking out your destiny. Those were very powerful words and concepts for me and since then I have been slowly using them.

SO thats the beauty of this book. I didnt get it at forst but about two thirds of the way I did. Can see why this book has sold soo many copies.

Highly reccommended.
