The Alchemist

One of the best books that I have read recently is The Alchemist by Paolo Coehlo. It is the story of a young shepherd who abandons his flock in southern Spain and travels across the Sahara Desert in search of the Great Pyramids. The novel, however, is much deeper than this simple story line. It is filled with allegories and metaphors that caused me to consider my own life and future goals. I found the novel so inspirational that I bought a copy of it for my younger sister. She is a college student and, like the young shepherd, is faced with many difficult choices. During the coming years, she will have to find apartments, apply for jobs, and begin shaping her own life, and I hope that the novel will help her understand these decisions better and figure out what her goals really are.

I recommend this book to all of you for the same reasons. The book is perfect for young adults who want to understand the world around them and who are starting to consider their own futures. So, grab a copy and start dreaming!
