The Alchemist

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

This book is very philosophical. It is about finding one's personal legend. Along the way the people the shepard meets are interesting and do help him. I find the book a little simplistic and the ending is downright biblical. An okay book but nothing earth shattering
My Favourite Character: The alchemist. He really does have the answers to the world
Least Favourite Character: The Englishman. He didn't have a clue and was sent,I believe, in a completely wrong direction
Best Part of the Book: The ending with the inherent moral
Worst Part of the Book: Talking to the sun and wind. That was a little far-fetched
What was Missing: I would have thought that his parents would be a little bit more involved in all this searching
