Book Review – The Alchemist

Image result for the alchemist

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho has beautifully forged a special abode in my heart. It is a brilliant amalgam of mystery and philosophy. It revolves around a shepherd boy and his hunt for a treasure. The theme of the novel is: ‘Treasure lies where the heart lies’. It stresses on our perception of life and happiness and convinces the readers to reflect on their definition of happiness. The book also coaches you to be resolute and fearless. Paulo Coelho writes, “There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.” The boy learns at every point during his journey, highlighting the fact that ‘life is a school’. With our inner power and determination we can change our lives. The author wonderfully educates us that love never holds us from achieving our dream, rather it pushes us towards success. No matter how many times you read this book, you will always be offered a new impression regarding life. ~Palak Arora
