Hello all, welcome to Zen Habits. This section is dedicated to reviews, product reviews and books too. Let’s begin

The Alchemist, written by Paulo Coelho, is about an Andalusian shepherd boy, named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain to find the treasure he dreams of in the deserts of Egypt.

This book has had a major impact all over the world yet still many people haven’t read it. I bought this book and was nothing but angry thinking why hadn’t I purchased it earlier. The alchemist is a motivational book for me, which guides one to follow his dreams.

Paulo Coelho depicted the characters and their conversations with the almighty as if they are talking to themselves, and this simplicity of storytelling is what grips your attention first. The book has soul-stirring wisdom, that dazzles the readers with its powerful positivity. There are only a few books that will get you hooked in the first few pages, and this one is definitely one of them.

There is nothing in the book that one does not consciously know, but the fact that we choose to overlook it is what is pointed out. For instance, everyone wishes to follow their dream but not many are ready to pay the price and suffer to achieve it, we get de-motivated amid the journey, we take criticism to heart and this ultimately hinders our path.

The book clearly depicts just one thing, the conversation between our mind and us, these conversations re brought out by Santiago’s acquaintances he meets in his journey who guide him to follow his quest. This is what we try to strive and our mind driven by our ego fights to not lose control. Once this stage is cleared, in the end, we do find the treasure.
