De alchemist / druk 70

De Alchemist - Harrie Lemmens, Paulo Coelho This is more a fairytale than a story, but a very beautiful one. Every sentence, every paragraph is crafted into a piece of jewelry that can be admired for hours on end. The story could be called rather 'flat' (although this gets better near the end), but it is never boring or even predictable. The admirable protagonist is the person everyone wants to be: a young man chasing his dreams, looking for happiness, and following his own legend.I'm doubting whether to give this four or five stars, but since it has been so long since my maximum rating, let's go for the five stars. In any case, a must read before you die.He who loves, can become anything.
