This book generated lots of discussion in our book club. Some of us did not go in for such mystic stuff...but still had a lot to say about the ideas brought up in this book. It starts out very literal and moves to the mystic. Enjoy a quick good read that will give you lots to think about!

romantic and inspiring
Paulo Coelho has a unique and beautiful way of story telling. This novel is filled with adventure and mystery while inspiring the reader to push their limits. It's a great book to escape in and gives the reader a renewed sense of limitless possibilities. It's majestic storyline traps the reader from the first sentence!

One of the most uplifting books I've read in quite a while. It was a Christmas gift from my son and I advised him to read it. Especially good for young adults wondering about their future. Sound advice and a great story all in one. Thoroughly enjoyable.
