Prologue – No book read for few years. Was suggested to read this book and saw many good reviews about it. Decided to get it and read it.
A Story that not only tells about following your dreams but compels you to do so. The unfurling of the story happens in a very lucid, unembellished and captivating manner. Paulo Coelho’s ideas unfold and take you to on the journey towards achieving your desires. Every single page is like a scene of a picturesque movie in which you are the lead, Santiago and hence you can have adjectives like courageous, confident, bold, gutsy, spirited, intrepid, assertive, buoyant and what not for yourself! The story that emanates as an interesting narrative finally culminates as a suspense thriller in the very very very last moment. You just cant stop yourself from falling in love with the way it all transpires. Lessons learnt – “The universe has a language”, “Be receptive to the signs from the existence”, “If you desire something from your heart, the entire universe conspires in helping you achieve it”, “Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.” ,“It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting”, “There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.” and the list goes on and on. If you are acquiescent to the depths of the thoughts of the author, you learn something profound from every page of this marvel.
Epilogue – The Zahir, Manual of the warrior of light, Brida, By the river Piedra I sat down and wept, The winner stands alone. All read within in the next 20 days. Paulo Coelho’s books occupy a shelf in my library and he holds a place in my heart
