5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational and very well-written! 19 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having felt a little lost and somewhat gloomy recently I came across an inspirational and thought-provoking book called The Shamanic Prophecy: The past will set you free. I had heard that The Alchemist was another book with a powerful message to convey, and I certainly wasn't disappointed. Although, I don't think that any book has the power to transform your life, I found the message to be comforting and life-affirming, just when I felt in the need for a `pick-me-up'!
Small, but powerful, The Alchemist is a great tonic for those days when life just becomes too much and when all you want to do is pull up the drawbridge and shut out the world

5.0 out of 5 stars The Alchemist Paulo Coelho 27 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
At a time in my life where I have had so many life changing things happen, not all my choice, I had naturally felt low and out of spirits and hope, and an endless fear of not knowing what to expect with my future, The Alchemist has given me hope once again to not be afraid and to believe in the power of dreams. I found this to be exactly what I needed, at a time I needed it the most.

5.0 out of 5 stars Please read this book. 18 Aug 1999
By A Customer
This book is a simple gift from the heavens, like so many other things in our world which go un-noticed. Read it in a day, or draw the pleasure out over three and have your life changed irrevocably without even trying. I read this book four years ago the first time, and finished it yesterday the second time. On both occasions, I was inspired into letting myself dream, and more so, to not be afraid to demand that these dreams be realised. Since then, somehow, I've come full circle around the world and into the arms of amazing friends and miraculous opportunities for growth. This book mightn't teach you anything you don't already know, but it's story will inspire you, and remind you of the moments when you feel love within your body, stronger than any other earthly bond known to humankind. That kind of love is what this book is about: it seeks to help us live it for ourselves.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Book 30 Dec 2005
By A Customer
I think there is one reason why this book has failed to live up to certain people's expectations. If you get too caught up with the hype about something, you higher your expectations to a ridiculous level and as a result you fail to enjoy it. The Alchemist is a beautiful book because it has a simple moral, and if everyone read it at face value and appreciated what it says, you might find yourselves becoming better people as a result. I know so many people who have read and loved this book and for each person, it meant something different.
Coehlo does not write his books for a good yarn, they are not about gripping, action-packed storylines with little meaning. For that, read Dan Brown. But the messages in his books are why they are so well-loved.
This was not my personal favourite. Veronika Decides To Die was more thought-provoking, and By The River Piedra I Sat Down And Wept was written for me. But my message to everyone is, forget what you have heard. Read the book and make up your own mind, instead of drawing on what everyone else says about it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring, pseudo-profound, and thankfully short. 4 Feb 2006
I wouldn't have finished this book except it was under 175 pages of large-ish type on small pages. It's not well written, it didn't really have any insightful comments and basically it was an annoying to read. The question, is how has it become so popular? The reason is that it has a pseudo- profound pretense. Lines like 'love is a falcon's flight over the sands' make people think that it is saying something important. However making adjectives into nouns and mentioning Jung in the introduction doesn't somehow mean that Paulo Coelho is telling me something about our lives. To save the time of actually reading the book, it just tells us in an allegory to follow our dreams. As if that actually changed anyone. although, the quote on the back claims it has the 'power to inspire nations and to change people's lives'. If you believe that you'll believe anything.
