The Alchemist is an entertaining book that retells the ancient story that all spiritual searches are searches for one’s self. But entertaining is about it. Don’t hope to find deeper spiritual truths in this book, it is more on the inspirational side of literature. This book is the king of visionary fiction, but kings are not prophets. We reviewed it because it is a visionary fiction classic. If visionary fiction is your genre you should read it. Good thing it is short.
