The Alchemist de Paulo Coelho



Key Emotion Indicator ©

The Alchemist follows the journey of an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago. Believing a recurring dream to be prophetic, he decides to travel to a Romani fortune-teller in a nearby town to discover its meaning. The woman interprets the dream as a prophecy telling the boy that there is a treasure in the pyramids in Egypt. Early into his journey, he meets an old king, whose name was Melchizedek, who tells him to sell his sheep to travel to Egypt and introduces the idea of a Personal Legend. Your Personal Legend is what you have always wanted to accomplish. Everyone, when they are young, knows what their Personal Legend is. He adds that when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it. This is the core theme of the book.
