The Alchemist: Paulo Coelho

I am sure I don't have to say much about this one piece as it is one of the most admired and well known novel.

Not getting into the plot line, will just brief it to by mentioning that its basically the journey of a Shepherd boy named Santiago. The journey which comprises of all sort of adventures and experiences of learning wisdom.

I loved the lesson from the book rather than the story. The story surely has been woven beautifully. But the message which the author had tried to convey in this one is commendable, its incomparable.

Its simple that one should find their own destiny by following and understanding the different signs which you come across in life.

In terms of The alchemist, its "Those who don't understand their personal legends will fail to comprehend its teachings."

The books explains the true essence of life which we, in today's busy life have been forgetting. Its that It just doesn't matter what you are searching in life, what you are seeking from life. It just doesn't matter if you finally achieve it, if you get to your goal or not. All that matters is what you've brought with you on the way, and what you've learned along the way from the people you have met, the hardships and heartaches you have been through.

One more most amazing dialogue in this book (which I am sure you all would know, if not from here then from "Om shanti om" movie:)) and the same is " When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it". I love to believe in this one thing. It makes you happy:)

Anyways, if you want to read something different from regular novels, then you must grab this one and start reading:)

And so,
