Book Review: The Alchemist

Book Review: The Alchemist


The Alchemist, 5 star book

This book has been on my to-be-read list for many years, and I’m glad I finally got around to it.  It is an allegory that explores pursuing one’s own unique destiny, or as this book refers to it, your own “personal legend.” 

There is a lot here about examining and being led by the myriad “omens” that surround us, as well as listening to and honoring what resonates as true in your heart. It encourages each of us to be at one with “the Soul of the world.”  This story can be enjoyed on many levels.  It is a short, but meaningful read, which finds it’s profundity in simplicity.  I give it five stars.

The Alchemist

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
