LOTS has been written about The Alchemist, so I wont! For more detailed reviews please see here and here. My feeling was that this book was inspiring, although others seem to either love it or loathe it, so it depends on what side of the fence you sit!
“When I looked at Farther I saw that work and school were really no different. One merely became qualified to pass from one system to the next, that was all. Routine was a fact of life. It was life, in fact.”
― Andrew Michael Hurley, The Loney
