 I 사랑 this book cover.
I love this book cover.
Hi everyone, I had finally read Paulo Cuelho's bestselling novel, The Alchemist and here is my review on the 인기 novel.

The Story

While 읽기 the novel, I did not quite understand the story and it was not until the 초 half of the story that I managed to understand. It telling us to follow our dreams if a person desires for it!

The Characters

Santiago (or the Boy in this story) is a very likable character because he manage to understand what the Alchemist is telling despite being relatively young, he is my favourite character out of the novel!
The other characters like the Englishman and just to name a few are very ambiguous, if 당신 ask me.

Is It Worth Reading?

Yes, I highly recommend this book for those who have not read it yet!
