This fable about Santiago — an Andalusian shepherd boy — is written by Paulo Coelho. Santiago is dreaming about travelling. In essence its about giving up your safe life and doing what your heart tells you. However, you need to be sure you understand what your heart is telling you before you can live your own legend.
I think the title of the book is not very strong. Ok, there is an alchemist in the book but also pyramids, a king etc.. I would have called it “Urim and Tummim”.
Definately a nice read for a sunday afternoon. Thanks again Suzanne.
