I kinda predicted the ending. I think its what you get when you read too much books or watch too much movies. But still its a good one.

i love this book! it's one of my favorites. This quote from the book is my all time fave "When you desire something really bad, all the universe will conspire to help you achieve it". ^_^

It's sort of what the Law of Attraction is all about from the book "The Secret" diba?

You can read it as an inspirational story loaded with symbolism, or as a straightforward fantasy tale. Either way, it's great.

this is too much like the little prince. anybody noticed the semblance? tooooo much like it.

i liek his plots. i mean, coelho's. but i think her "writes down" on readers. over explains everything, as if his readers wont understand what he's trying to get at otherwise. but then of course, i cant really judge his craftsmanship. it might just be the translation that sucks.

I share the same loved quote Mystique. Read this book a few years back and still can't perfect the art of "CONSPIRACY." LOL! Wish it's as easy as just thinking too much and viola! wish is granted.

I am in the unending process of finishing Coelho's The Devil and Ms. Prym. The Devil must have made me believe that I'm toooo busy to read. Who am I fooling, right? Just a thought, guys. :D

It brings a smile to see a Leo Buscaglia, with a twist of creativity, in the making. :thumbsupsmiley:

i agree. the ending was rather predictable. i knew what was coming long before i read the ending. and still, it is a good read.

Definitely among my fave books... any review/s on his other books?


Two weeks ago i bought his first or second book ata which is The Pilgrimage.. its not as good as the Alchemist but it seems like an autobiography from his real-life experience.

Thanks to this thread I was able to remember where I have read the line:
"God's hands has always been firm but infinitely generous"

Suddenly remember this line at random. Hmmm... Maybe the omens are telling me that I should go ahead and read it again
