Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Like the one-time bestseller Jonathan Livingston Seagull, The Alchemist presents a simple fable, based on simple truths and places it in a highly unique situation. And though we may sense a bestselling formula, it is certainly not a new one: even the ancient tribal storytellers knew that this is the most successful method of entertaining an audience while slipping in a lesson or two. Brazilian storyteller Paulo Coehlo introduces Santiago, an Andalucian shepherd boy who one night dreams of a distant treasure in the Egyptian pyramids. And so he's off: leaving Spain to literally follow his dream.

Along the way he meets many spiritual messengers, who come in unassuming forms such as a camel driver and a well-read Englishman. In one of the Englishman's books, Santiago first learns about the alchemists--men who believed that if a metal were heated for many years, it would free itself of all its individual properties, and what was left would be the "Soul of the World." Of course he does eventually meet an alchemist, and the ensuing student-teacher relationship clarifies much of the boy's misguided agenda, while also emboldening him to stay true to his dreams. "My heart is afraid that it will have to suffer," the boy confides to the alchemist one night as they look up at a moonless night.

"Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself," the alchemist replies. "And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second's encounter with God and with eternity." -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

13 von 15 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von B. Brenner am 7. Juli 2004
Format: Taschenbuch
Der Alchimist erinnert sehr an le petit prince. In Coehlo's Fall ist es der "kleine Schäfer", der sich auf eine abenteurliche Reise von Spanien nach Nordafrika begiebt und dabei sein beschauliches Leben als Schäfer hinter sich lässt.
Coelho erzählt sehr einfühlsam aus Sicht des "kleinen Schäfers", dem sich nach und nach eine neue Welt eröffnet. Mit jedem Ereignis erweitert sich das Weltbild der jungen Hauptfigur, die bemerkenswerterweise ihre sehr natürliche Grundeinstellung, welche nur auf den ersten Blick naiv anmutet, behält. Langsam fügt sich alles zu einem grossen Ganzen .... poetisch, spirituell, aber gleichzeitig sehr down to earth und wunderschön erzählt.

Format: Taschenbuch
Reading this masterpiece our hearts are filled with optimism and we are provided with the courage, required to reach our aim in life.
Written in a very simple and thus clear language, "The Alchemist" tries to open our eyes and our souls to the most important message in the world:
Follow your own path, without being discouraged by the opinions of other people and obstacles you may be confronted with, for it is promised, that if you don't deceive yourself by denying the gentle whispering of your heart, your spirit will be strenghtened and you will be no longer controlled by fate but in charge of it.
Unfortunately we often refuse to take the chances given in life because we are afraid of a possible failure. Instead we prefer to adapt to the daily routine of our "only too busy" social life, trying desperately to please others by satisfying their expectations. Our own dreams and hopes seem to be long forgotten and thus unfulfilled.
This book represents the first step to overcome the limitations we impose on ourselves.
Accompaning Santiago - an Andalusian shepherd boy - on his quest for a treasure, hidden somewhere near the Great Pyramids of Egypt, we learn how to put all doubts aside in order to remain on the path of hope, which leads in the end to the fulfilment of our life.
Thus I can only redommend: read this book and discover your own destiny!

Sprituality is en vogue. Especially, if it is coming from the Orient. Yoga, meditation, "feng-shui" make frequent appearences in "Cosmopolitan", "Starbucks" proudly sells "herbal infusions" under exotic names, and postcard haikus are full of melancholy but elevating meaning. This book is at the very pinnacle of this culture. It is simply brilliant in its relation to the contemporary soul-searcher: it is written in accessible language and printed in a large font, its length does not go beyond the attention span of the reader, and the number of thoughts does not overstrain his busy mind. For this, I have to raise the rating of the book from the one star I would give it otherwise.

Format: Taschenbuch
I understand that this book is meant to be read as a fable, but if that is the case, why does the author insist on spelling everything out for the reader on virtually every single page? Every step of Santiago's journey is so painfully obvious, this feels more like a self-help book with a "plot" thrown on top than a fully thought out novel. Yes, it does contain some basic truths, but that does not make for good reading. Furthermore, unless one is completely un-self-aware, one probably has an idea of what some of these truths are in the first place. But I suppose that's why it's so popular - people caught up in the rat race pick this book up and are convinced they've "seen the light."

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Chris Foreman am 14. Juli 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
Last spring I read "Illusions," by Richard Bach. When I read the reviews online, one guy mentioned he thought "The Alchemist" was superior to the story of "Illusions." I finally got around to "Alchemist" and I must say I was quite disappointed.
First off, yes I realize it's considered a fable, but the writing style is far too simplistic. I don't know if it's the translation, but it reads like a book an elementary schooler would read for a report. Annoying points: there are page after page of adolescent terms like "Master Work" and "Personal Legend" and "Language of the Universe", repetitious redundancies of quotes, just in case you haven't been paying attention, and very little masking of points. Coelho must not trust the reader to pick things up because he screams them at you.
But, that's just the writing style. As for the writing, there is a clear spiritual basis to the story, which is welcome, but the incessant talk of fate was a complete turn-off. I also felt there was an air of superiority to it. Santiago would pass people who seemed happy in their lives, and he would feel sorry for them because they weren't on a trek. In the case of the crystal shop owner, yes, he was pathetic for not pursuing his dream of going to Mecca. But to look at another shop owner and judge he has not pursued his dream, when perhaps his dream was to settle with his family, was distracting.
On to love....um, he meets a woman midway through the story and falls in love before they speak? Oooookay. And this woman he supposedly loves, and with whom he could settle with and be rich, he leaves to discover a treasure. Why is his dream that of a material/monetary nature? I had a tiny problemo with that one.
