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."

Pressestimmen

'His books have had a life-enhancing impact on millions of people.' THE TIMES 'One of the few to deserve the term Publishing Phenomenon.' INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY 'Coelho's writing is beautifully poetic but his message is what counts... he gives me hope and puts a smile on my face.' DAILY EXPRESS 'I love The Alchemist.' OPRAH WINFREY 'The Alchemist is a beautiful book about magic, dreams and the treasures we seek elsewhere and then find on our doorstep.' MADONNA "I feel like the luckiest man on the planet. It's a dream come true for me," to be able to direct and star and bring Coelho's book to the screen." LAURENCE FISHBURNE on the upcoming film adaptation of The Alchemist "One of my favourite books is The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, and I just believe that...I can create whatever I want to create. If I can put my head on it right, study it, learn the patterns...I feel very strongly that we are who we choose to be." WILL SMITH "When I'm on the set with young actors and sometimes you meet people in life who you feel they are a little confused and they want to be re-centered, there are two books that I always recommend. One of them is Siddhartha, and the other is The Alchemist. RUSSELL CROWE

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.

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.

So amazon delivery and all was fine. But the book itself is really bad.
It's a rip off of religious books. I found it annoying to have the book tell me a story and at each and every point give me the conclusion (moral of the story) too. It is as if you can't think for yourself. It's all like that. I rather have the opportunity to have my own opinion about things.
I was fooled by the book's good fame, but then a lot of people like Justin Bieber and that doesn't make him any good!
Also women in the point of view of this book are like goods, objects one would own. And all women are meant for in this book is for being married to men.

This book was hard to follow for me. Perhaps because his quest was typically male (boyish) and as a woman I found it hard to imagine that young men are that two-dimensional. To think that fullfillment of a dream must be a journey taken alone... Santiago makes nothing happen on his journey. In his quest,things only happen to him, not because of him. Santiago gains insight-big deal. One reviewer from Santa Clara wrote "I am a self professed evangelist of the book since I've read it. Absolutely love it's lessons without the "preachy" feel, and love the fact that the situations are those which every one of us can relate to - though all may not recognize them as they happen to us." I read the book because of that review...I wish I could get together with this person and discuss that. Lessons learned in the Alchemist are learned on stand-bye, they are not learned from experience. That's no way to grow in life.

Ein super Buch. Ich weiß gar nicht wo ich anfangen soll. Es ist nur zu empfehlen, da es selbst wenn es einer Person nicht gefallen sollte, nicht all zu viele Seiten mit denen man sich dann herumschlagen muss.
Ich bin durch dieses Buch ein Riesen großer Fan von Coelho geworden.

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!
