The writing style of Paulo Coelho is simple and lucid, and the story is the main reason behind its popularity. More than 65 million copies of The Alchemist have been sold so far. Even I didn’t remember, how many I re-read The Alchemist. One key thing I learned from this book is “Follow your dreams” and then next, there are hundreds of quotes in this book, that will twist and turn your inner feelings.
Here I’m pointing four major reasons why everyone should read the Alchemist by Paulo Choleo once in their life.

Every page of this book has some life lessons and you will definitely love it. You cannot imagine how deep this book is unless you read this masterpiece once. After reading this book you will get to know how important your dreams and goals are and how easy it is to chase your dream, You don’t need any resource to full fill your dreams all you need is courage to walk on the right in every situation.
Quotes from the Book
If John Green is a river of Quotes then no doubt Paulo Coelho is an ocean of Quotes. There are so many amazing Quotes in this book such as:
“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity.”
“I don’t live in either my past or my future. I’m interested only in the present. If you can concentrate always on the present, you’ll be a happy man. Life will be a party for you, a grand festival; because life is the moment we’re living now.”
These two quotes are my favorite. You will find hundreds of more amazing quotes in this book.
Story of the Alchemist
The best part of this book is its story, the story of a young Spanish shepherd who dreams of traveling the world treasure as desirable as any ever found. The story is so deeply written you will get to know when will read this book. There are only 161 pages in this book but it will take at least a week if you are an avid reader and a month for those who don’t read regularly because of its deep plots. You will read a plot then you will close the book for a while and then you will close your eyes also and you will the plot. That’s why how much you try you cannot finish this book in one go.
Impact of this book in your life
After reading this book you’ll have to agree with Paulo Coelho’s word ‘Dreams are made to be followed and life is meant to be lived’. Once you read this book then no doubt you will have a clear vision towards your dream. You’ll get to know if you dream something then you have to follow your dream and you have to achieve your dream.
