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.
