Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire von J.K. Rowling

I originally picked up The Alchemist because I thought the story looked interesting and while I found that it was, I also discovered that this novel was more than a quick read - it was a reminder of what life is all about.
The novel begins with a shepherd who dreams of traveling and finding his fortune. He can not ignore his dreams and he seeks out someone who may be able to help him discover the true meaning of these dreams. Along the way Santiago, the shepherd meets with disappointment as well as enlightenment at the oddest of places.
He learns that one must see the world with truly open eyes, one must see the signs that are all around him and are simply waiting to guide… Mehr dazu
