Written as a fable, The Alchemist is the philosophical and adventurous tale of Santiago, a simple Andulasian shepherd boy. Urged by a recurring dream to follow his true calling, Santiago starts off on a magical journey, drawing the readers along with him. The book has a simple and powerful message that is summed up in its central theme 'When you want something, the universe conspires in helping you achieve it.'Santiago sets out to travel the world in search of an invaluable treasure, and the story of all the treasures that Santiago finds along his way enlightens us about the wisdom of listening to our hearts and recognizing the omens that are strewn along life's path and more than that, our dreams.The main theme of the book is about finding one's destiny and is more of a self-help book rather than just literature.

He was admitted to a mental institution at the age of 16 as he did not oblige with the traditional ways. He joined Law School upon the compulsion of his parents but dropped out of it and led a hippie's life, immersed in the drug culture of the 60s. He also took up the practice of occultism and Satanism. He worked as an actor, journalist, theatre director and songwriter before he moved on to be a writer, which was his dream.

I already have this book. Paulo has this gift of telling Life's magic and lessons in gripping story form. Net is full of the review of this Book. I can't add anything new. Yes.. Infibeam should match the cover pic on their website with what they send. I received first edition of this book which was available at cheaper rate on competitor website.

The delivery was within the promised date and book is perfectly new. About the novel: a bit disappointed. May be it's because I expected a lot more from it. It's a good read, nevertheless. A bit old fashioned novel. But if you're buying Paulo's novels, that's what you get.
