The Alchemist

by: Paulo Coelho

Publisher: Harper (1988)


Staff Pick by comrade: Jacqueline

How can I describe this book? One word: magical. It was absolutely magical to read. If you were a fan of The Little Prince, this one's for you. Very inspirational and beautifully written. Coelho captures the curiosities of the universe in a novel about discovery and finding trust, love, and beauty.
