The Alchemist : Paulo Coelho

I don't think this was the book I meant to get. I feel like people have been talking about this book reverently for years, and I finally grabbed it from the library and started it without looking too closely. So, did you know it's a fable? And the real title is The Alchemist: A Fable About Following Your Dream? It had a few amusing and even sweet moments, but overall was silly. I wonder if it was The Alienist by Caleb Carr I am supposed to like.

  • I felt the same way when Kevin made me read Richard Bach.
