it is very good. Forces you to think about your religion and the meaning of life. It should be read many times. Because each time, you learn something new about yourself.

hi! that book is the best! all of Coelho's book have the same philosophy, so if you are looking for something a bit similar, you should try his other works too :o)

Welcome to myLot. I have never read the book. What is it about? It sounds as if you like the way it is written. I always admire a good writer.

I read this book about oh two three years ago when someone recommended it and I went out and got a copy of the book. Very interesting story about a young man looking for something and the encounters he has on the way to it.

Hello jajallena!(",) The Alchemist is a must-read book. Eversince, I read this book I come looking for the other books of Paolo Coelho. Like you, I had also read "Veronica decides to Die", it's also good since I like psychiatry as well. I would like to collect his book because I believe they are really really inspiring and can indeed lift your spirit. Just keep on reading his books!(",)
