Paul Coelho is a genius and I'm sure this fact would go undisputed. This is a story of a shepard boy who leaves his flock behind to discover a treasure he feels is his. I would categorize The Alchemist as a fable which is to say that a lesson is meant to be learned from hearing it. We are taught to pay attention to our hearts and that our greatest desires can be attained by abandoning fear and dreaming relentlessly. This book is an absolute masterpiece.
