Not “good” condition

I am really enjoying reading this book. However, I ordered a copy in “good” condition, but the cover is ripped, there is significant water damage, and lots of highlighting. I’m a bit sad about that but as I said the cook itself is wonderful!

Awful good condition

I bought the book. It said good conditions but when I received it all the pages are yellow. This is not what I expected

Amazing

It gives you an insight at life and how to look at things with different perspectives.

Take a journey to find treasure, you will not be disappointed.

I must say, this book is not my usual read. I’m so a murder mystery reader by heart. But like all good books, it was giving to me and I’m so grateful. The Alchemist is told from the third person narration. It’s a story about a young shepherd boy, who wants to travel around the world and find treasurer. On the journey he meets some people who help direct him towards his destination. This book has a whole circle of content including; trust, devotion, beliefs, love, value of life, friendship ,loyalty, treasure and learning. I’m glad that I took this journey. The Alchemist was a quick pleasant read and then I passed it on to be enjoyed by the next person. I believe the Alchemist was a beautifully written story and deserves to be read be all.

this review is about the physical book not #verygood

This review is not about the book itself but the physical condition of the book that I received. I ordered “very good” because of what the description says about it but the book I received is not even good... it’s already ripped. Not happy about it and I hope I just ordered “good” so I won’t expect something better than good.

Amazing quality! Thank you!

Amazing quality! The book arrived in a great shape. Thank you

Everyone should have this book!!!!

This was a book that I have been hearing about for a long time. I finally decided to own and read this particular book based off of the huge positive feedback. This was a book I was most anxious to read, and....... it did not disappoint lol. This was worth so much more then I imagined. A great story in its own right. Beautifully written with lovely characters. This is a book that adults and young adult and kids can enjoy. A light novel on the surface but go deeper and it really makes you think. A true masterpiece of a book. A short read but jam packed full of beauty and beautifully written gems

Nunca te desenfoques de tus sueños !

Todos tenemos nuestra historia personal por realizar, y este libro nos enseña que en ocasiones los obstaculos nos hacen perder el sueño, sin embargo si dios nos lo puso en nuestra mente es porque sabe que somos capaces de realizarlos, gracias por este libro . eucarisp@cantv.net

Everybody should read this just once (at least!)

This book is a wonderful fable in itself, as well as easy to read. I would recommend reading this to children as well as adults. It's definately a book to ponder the meaning of, and makes you think about the mysteries that remain outside of our "ordinary" world.

An illuminating story for all faiths and ages

I love this book -- with its wondrous tale of adventure, the sensitively written characters, and most of all, the lessons of the heart to be gleaned in the book's central premise -- that the Universe does all it can to help when one is brave enough to follow one's own dreams, and that you ignore the lessons of the heart at your own peril. This is probably the second or third time I've read the book, but this edition -- with enchanting illustrations by Moebius -- is a special treat, and I read the book completely transfixed! The story, the drawings, and the beautiful typography all combine to form a sensuous, exquisite reading experience. Do get the book, and it's the perfect gift for a loved one for your own self.
