One of my all time favourite books that I have rated 5 stars
This is an easy and enchanting novel to read that’s full of wisdom and life lessons. It reminds you of the old saying “the other man’s grass is always greener..” This story is about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who, unlike anyone else, has the same dream twice. He sees this as a sign and then literally follows his dream by traveling from his home in Spain to Egypt in search of hidden and unidentified treasure in the Pyramids. On his quest he meets interesting characters – a gypsy and an alchemist, both who provide Santiago direction for his quest, however what starts out as a quest to find worldly goods turns into a discovery of the treasure found within.
I loved this book from page 1, so elegantly written, so philosophical… it gets you thinking about the transforming power of our dreams and the importance of listening to our hearts.
Highly recommended to all avid readers, it’s such a refreshing read!!!
