Book Review: The Alchemist

The Alchemist

by Pimsiri Petchnamrob

The Alchemist was first published 23 years ago. Surprisingly, the content in this book still fits in the current context. It might be the mutual character of the all time greatest arts that help it to stay above the times.

The Alchemist talks about literally ‘the dream chaser’ who follows his dream to travel to the pyramids of Egypt for treasure that he always dreams about. The important thing that he eventually finds is not the treasure but people and experiences that he meets along the way to his destination.He discovers love, trust, unfaithfulness and friendship along his journey.

Even though we could not reach our dream, we still have the valuable experiences along the struggling way.
