Travel and personal exploration is at the core of The Alchemist.
I was recently given The Alchemist as a gift from a very important friend who had a vested interest in helping me figure my sh*t out. The back story is that I’ve always been longing for something, and travel was at the root of it. I always felt that until I was able to scratch the itch, that I would always be searching.

Enter The Alchemist, a beautifully simple tale about a boy searching for something
First of all, if you’re all about beautiful print, and the feeling of a book in your hands, make sure you get the 25th Anniversary Edition of The Alchemist.
As a print designer, I am super pumped every time I picked up this book. The beautiful cover illustration, embossings, foil stamps, and the fantastic deckled edges on the pages speak to me.
Now, on to the actual book review: The Alchemist
First and foremost, I have a terrible time keeping attention when I read (shiny stuff syndrome), but this book was different. The story in The Alchemist is so simple. It’s not convoluted with too many characters or side plots or fluff.
The boy struggles with all of the things that life attempts to throw at him, including love, fear, and danger. All while trying to figure out what it is that he’s actually searching for.
Since the story is so brief and simple, it’s hard to tell you much more without giving away its beauty and depth. But let’s just say that the simplicity of the messages and the simplicity of the characters, combined with so many beautiful ways that the words and prose are written, make for wonderful moments of clarity for anyone “searching for…something…in their world.
At the time of this writing, this book has over 9,000 reviews and over 4.5 stars, which is a testament to the read. Here’s where to get the print 25th Anniversary Edition on Amazon or for your Kindle.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do every time I read it—which is pretty much yearly.
