This novel is a perfect example of the saying ‘good things come in small packages’. The simple little tale conveys a very powerful and inspirational message, and so it is unsurprising it is considered a modern classic. 1-Sentence-Summary: The Alchemist is a classic novel in which a boy named Santiago embarks on a journey seeking treasure in the Egyptian pyramids after having a recurring dream about it and on the way meets mentors, falls in love, and most importantly, learns the true importance of who he is and how to improve himself and focus on what really matters in life. The proverb by Coelho, so magnificently written, says: “Everything that happens once can never happen twice. But everything that happens twice will surely happen a third time." I would recommend this book to all readers although everybody has different views and tastes.
