The Alchemist

By Paulo Coelho (5)

Show/Hide Info

Translated from Portuguese, Paul Coelho's novel The Alchemist is the story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd who dreams of finding treasure in Egypt, and follows his premonitions after a gypsy tells him to seek this treasure in the pyramids. Santiago buys a ticket to Tangiers, but is robbed upon arrival. It takes the youth a year to earn his return ticket. He works for a crystal merchant, who tells the boy that he himself regrets his failure to pursue his own dream. Santiago decides to continue his adventures, joining a caravan headed in the direction of the pyramids. The Englishman he meets at the Al-fayoum oasis introduces Santiago to a famous Egyptian alchemist, who has lessons to teach the young treasure seeker, and Santiago becomes this man's disciple. He also falls in love with beautiful Fatima, but she will not marry him until he finds his personal legend. In the end, Santiago realizes that his search is for a far more valuable treasure than the one he had been originally seeking. Young adult readers should enjoy Coelho’s immensely popular quest story, centered on a journey for self-identity.
