Reasons Why I Want to Read “The Alchemist” Over and Over Again

What book could you read over and over again?

I am a fan of the book “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho and enjoy revisiting it frequently. Each time I read it, I discover new insights and ideas that relate to my own life. One particular favorite part of the book for me is when the protagonist meets the crystal merchant.

“The Alchemist” is a widely acclaimed novel that has sold over 150 million copies worldwide and has been translated into 80 languages. The story follows the journey of a young shepherd boy named Santiago who sets out to fulfill his dream of finding a treasure hidden in the Egyptian pyramids. Along the way, he encounters a series of characters who teach him valuable lessons about the importance of following one’s personal legend, the power of the universe, and the meaning of true love.

The character I mentioned, the crystal merchant, plays an important role in Santiago’s journey. The merchant is initially reluctant to pursue his own dream of making a pilgrimage to Mecca because he is comfortable with his current way of life, despite it being unfulfilling. However, as I spend time with him and encourage him to follow his personal legend, the merchant begins to consider the possibility of change.

This part of the book highlights the theme of overcoming fear and complacency in pursuit of one’s dreams. It serves as a reminder to readers that even when we are comfortable in our current situation, we should still strive to push ourselves out of our comfort zone and pursue our passions.

Overall, “The Alchemist” is a timeless novel that offers valuable insights and inspiration to readers of all ages. It encourages us to believe in ourselves, follow our hearts, and trust in the journey of life. It is no wonder that it is a book that I, like many others, enjoy revisiting time and time again.

Thank you for reading this article.

私は、パウロ・コエーリョによる小説『アルケミスト』が好きで、頻繁に読み返しています。読むたびに、自分の人生に関連する新しい洞察やアイデアを発見します。特に、主人公がクリスタル商人と出会う部分がお気に入りです。

『アルケミスト』は、世界中で1億5,000万部以上の売り上げを記録し、80以上の言語に翻訳された広く知られた小説です。物語は、エジプトのピラミッドに隠された宝を見つけるという夢を実現するために旅に出る若い羊飼いのサンチャゴの旅を追います。途中で、彼は、個人の伝説を追うことの重要性、宇宙の力、真の愛の意味について貴重な教訓を教えてくれる一連の人物に出会います。

私が言及したキャラクター、クリスタル商人は、サンチャゴの旅に重要な役割を果たします。商人は、現在の生活が充実していないにもかかわらず、快適な現状に慣れているため、自分自身の夢であるメッカへの巡礼を追求することに最初は消極的です。しかし、私が彼と一緒に時間を過ごし、彼に個人の伝説を追うことを奨励すると、商人は変化の可能性を考え始めます。

この部分は、夢を追求するために恐怖や慣れに打ち勝つというテーマを強調しています。それは、現在の状況に快適であっても、私たちは自分自身を快適なゾーンから押し出して、情熱を追求するよう努めるべきだということを読者に思い起こさせます。

全体として、「アルケミスト」は、読者にあらゆる年代の人々に貴重な洞察やインスピレーションを提供する永遠の小説です。それは、私を含め、多くの人々が何度も読み返すことが楽しめる本であり、人生を楽しみながら、自分自身を信じて、自分の心に従うことの重要性を表している本です。
