    One thought on “O Alquimista”

    1. I really disliked this book I dislike it in the way that I dislike a great deal of modern self help books Their basic message is that if you want something to happen, you need to want it as hard as you can, without caring about anything else, not allowing yourself to doubt it, or let criticisms will get in the way then it will happen.I disagree with this notion, not only because it is false, but because it is bad.Just because we desire something, does not make it good This idea of following your [...]

    2. I feel like everyone LOVES this book, but I was kind of underwhelmed I know that translation affects the quality of writing, but I could not get into this writing style At all I felt like it was totally affected and contrived He was going for this fable parable style, but it seemed to fail miserably The parable like quality was totally contrived, and I thought the moral was pretty stupid Moral everything you want and need is close to home Take chances Follow your personal legacy Thenere was a su [...]

    3. Utter drivel The book was badly written, righteous, condescending, preachy, and worst of all, the ending was morally questionable All the fables and stories are stolen from elsewhere, religious ideas and spirituality are badly mixed, and everything is so obvious.The book harps on about tapping into the Soul of the World, the Language of the World, about your one true path and other nonsense The basic idea is that if you really want something and listen to your heart , the whole universe will hel [...]

    4. I hate this book so much I used to work at a hippie vegetarian restaurant where everyone raved about it, so I should have known what a disaster it would be Writing in the style of a fable does not convince me that what the author says is true or profound, this just sucks all around, and people who describe it as magical or inspirational are probably dudes I will not be having a beer with anytime soon This guy, he s probably going to get a Nobel one day, too.

    5. A good parable like The Prodigal Son should comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable The problem with this little book is that it does precisely the opposite.Coelho s message and, boy, is this a book with a message is that each of us has his own Personal Legend, and that if we recognize that legend and pursue it sincerely, everything in the Universe which is after all made up wind, stone, trees of the same stuff we are will conspire to help us achieve it Corollaries 1 people who don t r [...]

    6. The problem with this book is not just that it s bad, which it certainly is, but that there are so many people out there who want to corner you at parties and tell you how it s totally changed their lives In a way you might as well read it just so you can see how feeble minded they must be to get any kind of philosophical nourishment out of this inexhaustible stream of clich s The profound lessons you ll learn from this book amount to nothing than several variations on the theme of only the ver [...]

    7. when you really want something, the whole universe conspires in helping you to achieve it This book has crossed the boundaries of books, and has taken a life of its own, creating a movement all around the globe.Santiago s journey and spiritual quest, the people he meets, the dreams he has, the omens he encounters, and the nature he speaks to, are all things that we can relate tos that we ve either forgotten about or simply dismissed as childhood fantasies It is all about finding your Personal Le [...]

    8. I need to start this review by stating 1 I can t stand self help books and 2 I m a feminist no, I don t hate men some men are quite awesome, but I am very conscious of women and our place in the world Short summary mild spoilers A boy named Santiago follows his Personal Legend in traveling from Spain to the Pyramids in Egypt searching for treasure Along the way, he learns the Language of the World the Soul of the World and discovers that the Soul of God is his own soul If the statements in quote [...]

    9. My heart and I chatted, and we agreed, this book was short My heart thinks it was also stupid, and after spending some time talking to the wind, I came to agree with my heart Yet, after beginning the journey with this book and despite the words of my heart, something impelled me to continue Surely it had something to teach me The book had a lovely cover made of nicely textured stock that felt good in my hands It offered the added efficiency of a fold over flap something that publishers should m [...]

    10. spoilers and bitterness ahead be forewarned I m not sure that I can capture my utter disdain for this book in words, but I ll give it a shot I read this book about three years ago and just had to re read it for book club It was a steaming pile of crap then and, guess what , it s a steaming pile of crap now The main reason I hate this book it s trite inspirational literature dressed up as an adventure quest You go into it thinking that it s going to be about a boy s quest for treasure If you read [...]

    11. T h e A l c h e m i s t Half full Cauldron of Clever Story 2 Measures of Legends of Wisdom 1 Bundle of Self Help Motivations 1 Measure of Spiritual Experiences Some Drops of Love A Bunch of Magic Cub of Philosophy Scoop of Thriller Mix it all together in the Cauldron With Drops of an Oasis Springs Water And Bunch of Golden Desert s Sands Let it all Stir by The Desert s Winds And Heat up by the Heat of the Sun rays And Then you ll got the Treasure A Gold,even the Philosopher s Stone A Great Charm [...]

    12. This is either a beautifully written and fable like illustration of simple and universal truths or a load of crap.I have a bad feeling it s the later, but then I consider that there could also be a third option.I read once that Sting, when he wrote the classic Police song Every Breath You Take, mixed up a series of banal clich s about love and loss and just put them all together, and so this cool tune has some satire about it Similarly, the Credence Clearwater Revival song Looking Out My Backdoo [...]

    13. There are too many things one can learn from The Alchemist Its all about following your dream and about taking the risk of following your dreams, which is actually so difficult to do and there are very few people in this world who actually do, I mean risk it all, just to follow your heart and your dream Beauty is, the author is so right in saying that when u decide to follow your dreams the entire universe conspires in your favour which he called as the beginners luck and we all have been witnes [...]

    14. Timing is everything If I d read The Alchemist four years ago, I m sure I would have loved it It deals in big, bold pronouncements of follow your dreams et cetera et cetera, and it certainly makes you think about your own life and the pursuit of your own Personal Legend if you will But maybe I m older and cynical now, or maybe it s not cynicism so much as just seeing a reality that isn t so mystical and black and white as Paulo Coelho s, but in any event, I just wasn t buying what The Alchemist [...]

    15. If books were pills, Alchemist would be a sugarcoated placebo with no real effect Let s call it a feel good homily I have never read a book as meretricious as this one Many reviewers have pointed out the problems with this celebrated novel so I d rather not expend any words Suffice it so say that this is a good example of portentous writing that is best avoided if your benchmark is quality literature.

    17. Everyone save one guy said I would love this book Three of my four roommates have their own copies That one guy was right Now this may be because he planted that seed of discontent, or it may be because this was the least creative and most redundant book I ve read in a while It answered the question, what happens when you put The Hero With a Thousand Faces, The Bible and 1001 Arabian Nights in a blender That said, I didn t hate it Two of the central themes which were hammered in over and over ag [...]

    18. For my dear friends Matt and Jean Paul Homework for Introductory Course For Irony Disposal And Sarcasm Removal ICFIDASR , lesson one, re submission number 47.I once read a book that inspired me to change my whole attitude towards reading It was a medicine of universal, cosmic impact Before, I had thought that books existed to enrich me, giving me knowledge, pleasure and understanding After reading the introductory pages of this enchanting novel however, I learned that wisdom can be gained from [...]

    19. I simply could not finish this book I got halfway through it only to wind up on to see what others thought I simply felt guilty panning a book that has received such global acclaim than that, I felt lame and inadequate.Well, it turns out that my sentiments were echoed I basically felt I was reading an overblown parable and that the same lessons were being spelled out again and again It was like the 16th verse of a hymn Throughout my life I have periodically reflected to get a sense of who I am, [...]

    20. The book is full of messages and symbolizes our life actions interwoven in a very complex yet in elementary patterns which can be deciphered if one persists and have longing in his heart It is not just following the heart blindly but never ignoring what it says Its important message is to keep accord with your heart no matter where it takes you Because the treasure is where there is heart Now, that was the gist of the book But my reading experience with this book was horrible and most importantl [...]

    21. SPOILER ALERT This book is very inspiring and what I really need right now to motivate myself with my everyday endeavors In the end the boy in the story who was searching for his treasure, despite the long travels and experiences, find his treasure not in the place where he suspected it to be, but in the place where he came from It s just pretty ironic that what have you looking for is in the end is just beside you right from the beginning It s just that what he learned and discovered from his t [...]

    22. I will preface this review by saying I m surprised how wildly passionate people are in their review of this novel regardless of whether they love or hate The Alchemist I m one of those people who love it But, I understand why people are so passionate in their dislike of this work Paul Coelho looks to inspire passion in people with The Alchemist And he succeeds in doing so especially in those who are so passionate in their dislike of this book.The Alchemist is a novel that combines an atmosphere [...]
