A special 25th anniversary edition of the extraordinary international bestseller, including a new Foreword by Paulo Coelho.

Combining magic, mysticism, wisdom and wonder into an inspiring tale of self-discovery, The Alchemist has become a modern classic, selling millions of copies around the world and transforming the lives of countless readers across generations.

Paulo Coelho's masterpiece tells the mystical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure. His quest will lead him to riches far different—and far more satisfying—than he ever imagined. Santiago's journey teaches us about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, of recognizing opportunity and learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, most importantly, to follow our dreams.

    I read this during my highschool years and it changed my perspective on life and I didn’t realize it until the very end of the book that it was so fantastic. A book that brought back my joy for reading and taught me so much. Worth the read!

    I don’t know why I put off reading this book for so long, I feel both vindicated and slightly distraught. Vindicated in my abilities, distraught I’ve let fear set in. This book is relatable in terms of life and the pursuit of happiness. Would recommend!

    A pseudo parable with terrible writing masquerading as profundity.
