Inhaltsangabe

Paulo Coelho's enchanting novel has inspired a devoted following around the world. This story, dazzling in its simplicity and wisdom, is about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of treasure buried in the Pyramids. Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king, and an Alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest. No one knows what the treasure is, or if Santiago will be able to surmount the obstacles along the way But what starts out as a journey to find worldly goods turns into a meditation on the treasures found within. Lush, evocative, and deeply humane, the story of Santiago is art eternal testament to the transforming power of our dreams and the importance of listening to our hearts.

Kritikerstimmen

"The story has the comic charm, dramatic tension and psychological intensity of a fairy tale, but it's full of specific wisdom as well, about becoming self-empowered, overcoming depression, and believing in dreams." (Publishers Weekly)

"It is short, but certainly packs a wallop. What makes the story even better is Jeremy Irons's unforgettable narration.... Irons's voice is crystal clear, and every word is given its own starring role in the text. He creates wondrous characters, male and female, that stay with us." (AudioFile)

Coming from the soul of all there is...

Every time I listen to this story or read the book I hear and learn something profound. Within my heart I feel the deep truth in every word that's written... to speak with the words of the book: everything was written by one hand and it comes from the soul and the heart of the world... from god...

Thank you Paulo for this masterpiece...

inspiring piece worth listening

The story motivated me to take my life into my own hands again; to focus on the beauty of life and try to resist or change opinions, values, behaviors that actually go against what my hard says is right for me.

You have to listen to it twice

So I listened to this book the first time and thought to myself wow, that was good. Then I got to my book club and the girls went on and on about the book. SO i had to listen to it again. Then another time because i wanted it to go on and on so in total i've listened to this book 5 times in 1 year alone :)
