An Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of a treasure buried in the Pyramids. Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king, and an alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest. No one knows what the treasure is, or if Santiago will be able to surmount the obstacles along the way. But what starts out as a journey to find worldly goods turns into a discovery of the treasures found within.… (mais)

    Petroglyph: The Alchemist reads like a fairy tale version of Teilhard de Chardin's much more grandiloquent work. Coelho’s “Soul of the World” is very similar to de Chardin’s noosphere, a collective consciousness that all humans are immersed in and that ultimately resolves into God Omega. All is one, all is Love (even valence bonds at an atomic level).… (mais)

I get the hype behind this book now.
Truly such a beautiful read.
I literally started crying towards the end of the book for reasons I can't explain because we weren't even at an emotional part or anything. That book has that much power to it. ( )
  mygreaterperhaps | Mar 1, 2021 |
This book was heavy on message and light on story. Description is spare - not in the satisfying immersive way of, say, Hemingway, but in a way that leaves much to be desired, especially since the messages that dominate the text are arbitrarily enforced and often contradictory. The characters, especially the boy, are not endearing, and act capriciously. (The narrator applauds this randomness as faith or omens.) Still, some omens are relevant and others, apparently, are not. The story offers no foundation as to why this is so.

The women in the story are not well-presented. Since this book is written in the language of parable (characters, e.g., are unnamed), it would be unfair to say the women are objectified. However, I can say that the women are presented as little more than pretty faces who simply wait for their men to return from whatever adventure they seek. Fatima's 'mission,' e.g., results in a man who leaves her for a lengthy period of time in pursuit of little more than gold coins. Lucky her that she has it so easy since the protagonists' mission requires much more muscle and willpower to attain than her own; her mission is simply to wait around the well until some guy walks into her life.

Worst of all is the payoff, which is very small; for being so righteous in its intent, the actual result of his adventure is underwhelming. The fact that his treasure is material is disappointing after all that the protagonist had been through, and made the message (whatever that was) seem irrelevant. The book is presented in reality with some aberrations, and then makes a weird turn for the surreal near the end, and then ends up somewhere very normal, which all results in a lack of believability. The message is disappointing in that it would only sincerely be adopted by ultra-focused and potentially mentally ill people who care not for the affairs and feelings of others in pursuit of their own potentially petty 'personal legacies.'

Within a relatively simple journey framework, Coelho writes a multi-layered spiritual story that requires much thought to digest thoroughly. He uses an optimistic fusion of the young boy’s open-minded Christianity, the Islam of the North African characters, and a Buddhist emphasis on mindfulness. God, via the Soul of the World, plays a positive role in the daily lives of the characters, using a language everyone is able to understand. In order to pursue his own personal legend, and in order to overcome the internal and external obstacles along the way, the young boy learns the importance of one’s personal motivation and goals. He learns that this self-awareness requires not only consciousness of his own actions and thoughts, but also of the world around him and the greater world as a whole.

As he travels, his perspective widens. He learns to listen to the silence of the desert and to acknowledge the omens of the Soul of the World. He learns to recognize when men or animals are speaking the language of the world. He learns to appreciate that everything is one, that the actions of each person affect the rest of the people in the whole, wide world. Everything that a person does is written on the Soul of the World in the language of the world, and when a person pursues his “personal legend” with focus and enthusiasm, the Soul of the World – and the whole world, since the Soul of the World is within everyone and everything, written and spoken in a language everyone can understand – conspires to help him complete his mission. With time and experience, the young boy learns these lessons and internalizes the meaning of “everything is one.” He gains the self-awarness to recognize that the whole world is working in his favor, giving him even more self-confidence to complete his journey when the enthusiasm wears off and the proximity of the target becomes harder to see.

In the end, though, the geographical location of his material treasures empahsize the importance of the journey itself. Had he find the gold coins without first selling his sheep and making his way across North Africa, he never would have met the love of his life, nor the Alchemist at the oasis. Obviously, he also would not have learned the important spiritual lessons that have enriched his life and made him into the wise man he has become. With travel and with the widened perspective, he learned to look within, to learn more about himself and about his place in the world. ( )

Too abstract/religious for my liking. Thankfully, it's quite short. Don't get why there's so much hype about it - really nothing to write home about. ( )

Bom; não prende muito. Muito filosófico, no mau sentido. ( )

Introduction by Coelho:  I remember receiving a letter from the American Publisher Harper Collins that said that: "reading The Alchemist was like getting up at dawn and seeing the sun rise while the test of the world still slept."
The alchemist picked up a book that someone in the caravan had brought. (Prologue, trans Clifford E. Landers)
The boy's name was Santiago.
Citações
Informação do Conhecimento Comum em inglês. Edite para a localizar na sua língua.
We are told from childhood onward that everything we want to do is impossible. We grow up with this idea, and as the years accumulate, so too do the layers of prejudice, fear and guilt. There comes a time when our personal calling is so deeply buried in our soul as to be invisible. But it's still there.
He still had some doubts about the decision he had made. But he was able to understand one thing: making a decision was only the beginning of things. When someone makes a decision, he is really diving into a strong current that will take him to places he had never dreamed of when he first made the decision.
"Always heed the omens", the old king had said.
Maktub (it is written)
To realise one's destiny is a person's only real obligation. All things are one. And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it', the old king said.
