The Alchemist is probably one of the best books that i have read in my entire life.It has been written by Paulo Coelho,the Charles Dickens of modern times.He is probably the best the world has right now.The Alchemist shows the world through a young man who is trying to find the treasure of his dreams.He faces many difficulties in his path,but he finally wins,aided and advised by the alchemist,a chemist in his own sense.
