“The World’s Greatest Lie” – The Alchemist

Originally published in Portuguese, this story is a fable about a boy who travels the desert for a treasure.  I had heard many people talk about The Alchemist, so I knew I needed to pick it up and read to see what it is all about.  The story element is low, however, it is very interesting to read because it does lead to much self reflection.  This is the kind of book that actually takes a long time to read because you end up contemplating a lot throughout the reading.

Below is an excerpt.
