Ever randomly burst into tears and not know why? Nothing sad has happened in the last 30 seconds! You're not even thinking about sad stuff! What is wrong with you?!

This has happened to me quite a few times lately. Most notably, while revisiting some پسندیدہ فلمیں from my childhood.

And get off my lawn.) During several of these فلمیں that I watched hundreds of times in the early '90s, something strange happened....

Hi everyone, I had finally read Paulo Cuelho's bestselling novel, The Alchemist and here is my review on the مقبول novel.

The Story

While reading the novel, I did not quite understand the story and it was not until the سیکنڈ half of the story that I managed to understand. It telling us to follow our dreams if a person desires for it!

The Characters

Santiago (or the Boy in this story) is a very likable character because he manage to understand what the Alchemist is telling despite being relatively young, he is my favourite character out of the novel!
The other characters like the Englishman and just to name a few are very ambiguous, if آپ ask me.

Is It Worth Reading?

Yes, I highly recommend this book for those who have not read it yet!
