The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho
I picked this book because its very famous and supposed to have changed many people's lives.
I didn't really like the alchemist, I couldn't even finish it. I know the main essence of the book gets lost in translation but I didn't understand the purpose of some scenes and I felt it was dragging at some points.
The main story is about a shepherd who decides to seek his fortune elsewhere and how how earns it.
The pace was really slow and oncee I almost feel asleep. Maybe its because 'The alchemist' is for ann older audience.( Im 15).
I felt as if I was reading a philosophical book and I got bored .I usually finish a book within a day but this one,I could only read 2 pages at a time.
bottom-line:- didn't understand what was the big deal about this book.
