Book Review: The Alchemist

“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
– Paulo Coelho

I picked up this book and essentially did not put it down. 

I read it in about a day and a half, I was out at the lake with my family and definitely got some strange looks while sitting on the dock reading. 

I’m not going to lie I had no idea what the book was about when I picked up on a whim and brought it to the lake. All I knew is that it sounded familiar. 

But am I extremely grateful that out the pile of books on the countertop I decided to pick this one? Yes, a million times yes.

The way the story flows, mixed with the random bits of almost overwhelming knowledge that are dropped throughout. It is such an enjoyable read.

I took notes throughout the book and when I was finished I gave it to my older brother who is also a bookworm. I gave him the book and a different colored pen. I am excited to see what stands out to him compared to what stood out to me.
