While it will greatly enhance your enjoyment and understanding of the book, it is not intended to stand in its place.* The Alchemist is the tale of Santiago, a shepherd boy in search of a treasure the likes of which no one has ever seen. This sidekick is your companion as you trek from Spain with Santiago, through Tangiers, and into the deserts of Egypt, where he meets the alchemist. You will read an expert analysis of the story as you go, discovering the importance of the novels two main themes: Personal Legend and Universal Language, both of which make much more sense after you absorb this sidekick along with The Alchemist. The story is as much a learning experience for those reading it as it is anything else. In Paulo Coelhos The Alchemist, Santiago finds his treasures, but the tale is about more than that. Beyond the primary message of following your dreams, the novel teaches you the importance of noticing lifes clues, whether good or bad. Books like this come along once in a generation, and this modern classic is still going strong, selling over 65 million copies to date, in dozens of languages. Take the journey with Santiago, and once its complete, sit back and ponder the deep questions we present at the end of this expert sidekick. Whether having a friendly conversation with friends or knee-deep in a heated discussion at your local book club, we give you all the ammo you need to present an engaging angle.
