Not the greatest...
on 22 December 2009
First of all, I should say that I was a big fan of 'The Alchemist'. It was such an inspiring book that really left you thinking the world wasn't quite as rooten and dark as you might have assumed. It also had so many layers to it that I found myself thinking about the different segments and messages buried in it.
This book however, is not quite up to that standard. TO me it felt a little contrived and a little bit cliched. Don;t get me wrong - ot was ok. But nothing more. If you've never read Coehlo before then buy the 'The Alchemist'. If you're already a fan then you're going to get this anyway so you may as well ignore me!
