Quite simply the best book I have ever read !
on 5 January 2001
I bought Alchemist on holiday in 1996, and could not put it down for a second. I have just had to buy another copy as the original one eventually fell to pieces. What can I say, breathtaking writing, a superb plot. Well done Mr James, I'm impressed.
