 I tình yêu this book cover.
I love this book cover.
Hi everyone, I had finally read Paulo Cuelho's bestselling novel, The Alchemist and here is my review on the được ưa chuộng novel.

The Story

While đọc the novel, I did not quite understand the story and it was not until the một giây half of the story that I managed to understand. It telling us to follow our dreams if a person desires for it!

The Characters

Santiago (or the Boy in this story) is a very likable character because he manage to understand what the Alchemist is telling despite being relatively young, he is my favourite character out of the novel!
The other characters like the Englishman and just to name a few are very ambiguous, if bạn ask me.

Is It Worth Reading?

Yes, I highly recommend this book for those who have not read it yet!

“But bạn know I’m very shy! Besides, I’m not very good at socializing, bạn know? I always make myself sound like a total freak!

Author Randy Jernigan and Jackson
When I sat down to bữa tối, bữa ăn tối at a small Asian bistro with my old friend and writer Randy Jernigan, he quickly scanned the menu, searching for the healthiest foods. Today would not be one of his famous “cheat days” he shares on his social media pages–usually Mondays when he and best friend, Jackson Fackrell, indulge in what he terms a “free meal.” Today he opts for several veggie heavy dishes with less calories, and of course, minus the fried cơm, gạo and noodles. Later, as the waitress cleared the table, I notice that she cleared away his half eaten meal.

This was originally written for a Facebook audience of Những người bạn until I decided to post it here as well.
