The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho





"When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it"

One of the best book I've ever read and that's how I've become one of Paulo's fan. My sis bought this book while she was in Singapore. She told me it's a great book to read. And when I got hold on this book, it just got me addicted.

A young man named Santiago had a dream about a little boy telling him there's a treasure near the pyramids. He seek for a gypsy to ask her what his dream meant. The gypsy told him to get the treasure. On his journey he met a girl, a king and got robbed by a lying thief. He helped a crystal merchant with his shop for a year and then, continue his journey to find the treasure. He met an englishman in Egypt who tells Santiago about an Alchemist who can transformed metal into gold. And he also met a muslim girl named Fatima and fall in love with her. But will he stay for the love of his life or continue his journey to find the treasure?

This story kind of influence me because it's about following your dreams but at the same time, obstacles always stop us from reaching for it. It's a quick read though as it is thin unlike the other books. You can finish it in a week or less. I recommend you to read the book and try to understand the message.

I'm not sure if it's available here in Brunei. Maybe you can find it at Best Eastern? or perhaps you might want to consider ordering one from Amazon.com but you'll have to wait for few weeks though for the book to arrive..
