YmistenHistorien om de skattene som Santiago finner på sin vei lærer oss den viktigste av alle visdommer å lytte til sitt hjerte å forstå tegnene på livets vei og fremfor alt å følge sine drømmer Alkymisten er en av vår tids mest solgte bøker oversatt til språk og utgitt i lan. Utter drivel The book was badly written righteous condescending preachy and worst of all the ending was morally uestionable All the fables and stories are stolen from elsewhere religious ideas and spirituality are badly mixed and everything is so obviousThe book harps on about tapping into the Soul of the World the Language of the World about your one true path and other nonsense The basic idea is that if you really want something and listen to your heart the whole universe will help you achieve it if you only look for omens A uestionable idea in a world where people no longer want to work hard and achieve independentlyIt reads like a really bad self help book written for 8 year old children and disguised as a symbolic parable I read a lot of books and I can safely say this is the worst book I have ever read It's only saving grace was that it was mercifully short

I need to start this review by stating 1 I can't stand self help books and 2 I'm a feminist no I don't hate men some men are uite awesome but I am very conscious of women and our place in the worldShort summary mild spoilers A boy named Santiago follows his 'Personal Legend' in traveling from Spain to the Pyramids in Egypt searching for treasure Along the way he learns 'the Language of the World' the 'Soul of the World' and discovers that the 'Soul of God' is 'his own soul'If the statements in uotes above 'personal legend' etc fascinate you then you'll enjoy this book If you think they are hokey and silly then you'll think this is a terrible book If you think statements such as When you want something all the universe conspires you to achieve it and All things are one are moving and life changing you'll love this book If such statements have you rolling your eyes then this isn't your cup of teaIts not that I find anything wrong with these messages They are important but must be balanced with responsibility In my experience 'following your dreams' or personal legend is not the only way toward wisdom and strength Is the person who struggles to put food on the table every day for his or her family consciously realizing that he or she may not be following his or her 'personal legend' any less heroic than some traveler who leaves everything and everyone he or she is responsible for to go on a spiritual uest Coelho comes close to labeling such people as losers in life which I find completely off the mark as some of these people have the most to offer in terms of wisdomThe issue of responsibility is also part of this book's sexism The main male characters in the novel have 'Personal Legends' they are either seeking them or have achieved them or have failed to achieve them But Coelho never mentions 'Personal Legend' with regard to women other than to say that Fatima Santiago's fiance is 'a part of Santiago's Personal Legend Thats fine but what about her own Personal Legend Instead of traveling to find her dreams she is content to sit around do chores and stare everyday at the desert to wait for his return This is her 'fate' as a desert women The fact that women don't have Personal Legends is even galling considering the fact that according to Coelho even minerals such as lead and copper have Personal Legends allowing them to 'evolve' to something better ie goldIn the ideal world presented in THE ALCHEMIST it seems that the job of men is to seek out their personal legends leaving aside thoughts of family and responsibility and its the job of women to let them and pine for their return Of course someone has to do the unheroic inconvenient work of taking care of the children the animals the elderly the illIf everyone simply goes off on spiritual uests deciding they have no responsibility other than to seek their Personal Legends no one would be taking responsibility for the unglamorous work that simply has to take place for the world to runOn the other hand what if both men and women are allowed to struggle towards their 'Personal Legends' and help each other as best as they can towards them but recognize that their responsibilities may force them to defer compromise or even 'sacrifice' their dreams This may seem depressing but it isn't necessarily Coelho seems to think that Personal Legends are fixed at childhood or at birth or even before and are not changeable they have to be followed through to the end no matter how silly But in my experience many people have chosen to adjust compromise and even 'give up' on their dreams only to find that life grants them something better or they have a new better dream to follow a path providing greater wisdom For me these people have a realistic humble fair and less cliched vision of the world than Paulo Coelho's vision in THE ALCHEMIST

A good parable like The Prodigal Son should comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable The problem with this little book is that it does precisely the oppositeCoelho's message and boy is this a book with a message is that each of us has his own Personal Legend and that if we recognize that legend and pursue it sincerely everything in the Universe which is after all made up wind stone trees of the same stuff we are will conspire to help us achieve it Corollaries 1 people who don't recognize their legends are never happy 2 people who fail to realize their legends are afraid and 3 people who refuse to pursue their legends even when they know what they are are both unhappy and afraid I admit I've left out a nuance or two here and there but not many There aren't than three or four nuances in the bookI fear that the result of taking such a message seriously will be to make the successful even self satisfied the narcissistic self absorbed and the affluent self congratulatory At the same time those who are unfortunate will blame themselves for their bad fortune those who lack self esteem will lose what little they have and the poor will see no not God as the beatitude says but the poor will see they have only themselves to blamePerhaps I am being too harsh I can see how a few individual young persons hemmed in by parental expectations and seeking their own paths may find enough hope and courage here to help them venture forth But I am convinced the damage done by books like this like The Secret The Celestine Prophecy and anything ever written by the late Dr Wayne Dyer or for that matter anything he may ever choose to channel from beyond the grave is far greater than the little good they may achieveIf you like parables don't read this book Go read a book of Hasidic tales collected by Martin Buber a book of Sufi stories collected by Idries Shah or a book of parables and sayings by Anthony de Mello insteadOr then again you could just try Jesus Jesus is always good
