The Alchemist

The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho This is a spiritual little book in fable form, all about following your dreams. It was a quiet and pleasant read for me, whiling away a Sunday afternoon. A young shepherd has a dream, meets an interesting cast of characters and journeys on his personal quest. Along the way he learns that what you are looking for may well always have been in your own backyard. A quiet sigh as I turned the last page of the book.
