Book Description

Dec 9 2008
Santiago, un jeune berger andalou, part à la recherche d'un trésor enfoui au pied des Pyramides.
Lorsqu'il rencontre l'Alchimiste dans le désert, celui-ci lui apprend à écouter son cœur, à lire les signes du destin et, par-dessus tout, à aller au bout de son rêve.
Merveilleux conte philosophique destiné à l'enfant qui sommeille en chaque être, ce livre a déjà marqué une génération de lecteurs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Une belle réflexion sur le sens de la vie Feb. 27 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Voilà un beau livre qui nous fait réfléchir sur le sens de la vie. En conséquence, c'est un livre à lire lentement afin de se donner le temps de méditer sur les messages cachés derrière l'histoire. Une mise en garde par contre, il faut être d'humeur à vouloir réfléchir autrement on a l'impression de lire un récit quelque peu moralisateur.
Deux extraits que ma nature fonceuse a particulièrement aimés:
"Une quête commence toujours par la Chance du Débutant. Et s'achève toujours par l'Épreuve du Conquérant."
"Quoi qu'elle fasse, toute personne sur terre joue toujours le rôle principal de l'Histoire du monde. Et normalement elle n'en sait rien."
Voilà donc deux citations pouvant nous aider à toujours faire de notre mieux dans la vie. Espérons qu'elles pourront inspirer d'autres gens.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is an extraordinary story about optimism, hope, courage and perseverance. It is about finding out what is our 'mission' in life, about destiny and following our dreams - whenever one wishes something, the whole universe conspires to its realisation. Everything is possible as long as we really want this to happen.
At the first level, the story seems to be very simple, and as Coelho himself said it, "simple things are the most valuable and only wise people appreciate them". But it is by far a very complex story with very deep meanings.
One of the things suggested here is that people who don't dare to follow their dreams, their 'Personal Myth', will have a superficial and empty life.
It is also about being courageous to meet your destiny, to dare making your dreams come true and following the road that has been made for them, and find God while searching for their destiny and their mission on earth.
Another important issue in this book is finding your soul-mate and love - the core of existence and creation. When we are in love we try to improve ourselves: "I love you because the whole universe conspired for me to come close to you."
I think this book can be enjoyed by everybody, because we all find ourselves in Santiago, the main character of the book - we all have dreams, desires and perhaps some us dont have the necessary courage to follow our dreams - and courage is the language that helps you most in understanding the world.
I recommend this book to everybody who thinks that life is still beautiful and even to those who believe the opposite - Im sure it will make you change your minds.

En résumé, si vous êtes dans une période de votre vie où tout semble arriver sans raison et but précis...ce livre pourrais bien vous redonnez de l'espoir et vous aider à comprendre ''le pourquoi'' de la vie.
In resumé, if your stuck in a rut, and you feel like nothing is going like you planned out in life; that your wondering why ''this or that'' is happenning....this book will give you hope by allowing you to understand ''the why'' of life.

5.0 out of 5 stars So simple... Feb. 17 2014
By Arman
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is written for a 10 years old child who like adventure book. But the difference is that the child will not understand the profound meaning of life behind all this story. I can read this book a thousand time and I will always find something new or with a new understanding. It help a lot, whatever the situation you have in your life, sad, happy , hopeless or ready for new adventure. Sorry for my so-so english...i'm a french canadian ;)
