Rated 5 of 5 stars
I took my time reading Coelho’s well-known novel, The Alchemist. It definitely makes you think about your purpose in life, your goals and whether you have lived up to your fullest potential. It causes you to question the things in your life as necessary, luxury or just a placeholder for not doing what you really want to do in life. I found the story of the boy journeying to his “personal legend” to have many similarities to my life and my quest to find my purpose. I continually work towards something but have yet to grasp fully what my own personal legend is. I think I have an idea, but like the boy, did not know exactly. Freedom and understanding is the purpose but getting there can take people down many lanes. I enjoyed this novel immensely and will likely read it again when I feel that I’m either straying from the path or questioning whether life can be better.
