This dream was so prophetic that Santiago genuinely believed this was his ultimate goal in life. After deciding to travel to a Romani fortune-teller in a nearby town to discover its meaning, a gypsy woman tells him that there is a treasure in the Pyramids in Egypt.
Towards the beginning of his journey, Santiago meets an old king, named Melchizedek, who advises him to sell his sheep in order to travel to Egypt. He also introduces the idea of a Personal Legend, stating that your Personal Legend, “is what you have always wanted to accomplish. Everyone, when they are young, knows what their Personal Legend is.”
The Alchemist Physical CoverAlong the journey, Santiago meets an Englishman who is in search of an Alchemist and together they continue their search for treasure. As they travel through the Sahara desert, Santiago meets and falls in love with a beautiful Arabian woman named Fatima. After a brief period of time, Santiago asks Fatima to marry him, but she tells him that she will only marry him after he finds his treasures. Perplexed by this, Santiago later learns that true love will not stop one’s Personal Legend, and if it does, it is not true love.
Eventually Santiago meets a lone alchemist who teaches him about Personal Legends. He shares his wisdom that people want to find only the treasure of their Personal Legends but not the Personal Legend itself. The alchemist states,
“Those who don’t understand their Personal Legends will fail to comprehend their teachings.”
If you are looking for a book that will inspire courage, this is the one. No matter what your dream, goals or visions are, the universe will conspire to help you achieve the things you want, regardless of how insurmountable the task seems. You must live the life you truly desire to its fullest extent if you want to look back on a life having worth lived.
The essential message is that treasure is more worthy than gold.

A few weeks ago I took my mother to a dental appointment and opened my Kindle to see what I had available while I waited. I decided to give this book another try and started from the beginning, as I couldn't remember anything from what I read previously. I'm not sure what was different this time around, but I was completely engrossed and my 2 hour wait flew by! I continued to read whenever I found a chance and finished it within a few days. I now find myself constantly thinking of the story and relating it to my own life, as well as my friends and family.
It's a short and very simple story, but definitely worth reading!
If you've read other reviews then you know already that it's kind of a new age/mystical kind of story. A young man goes in search of himself and has many adventures along the way.
I liked it and thought it was well written. It flowed very nice from one adventure to the next. Without telling everything about the story and thus revealing all the special connections within it - I'll just say if you like reading metaphysical type of things where there are lessons and learning and purpose...then you'll like this.
Suggestion - find out what an Alchemist is before you begin the book. Once you know that, then you can better decide if this is for you.
Santiago, a shepherd in Spain, has a prophetic dream, of riches buried near the pyramids, one night while sleeping in an abandoned church followed by a couple of encounters with some people who impart the importance of him following the signs. That everyone has their own life quest, or personal legend, and his was to journey to the Egyptian pyramids to find the treasure. On the way, he gains self growth, world knowledge, friendship, and his soulmate, which of course, is of much more value than any treasure he could ever hope to find.
So, this is a nice little story. It has spiritual undertones without being religious.
