I read this book when I was in High School and found it very inspiring. It made me dream :)

I have not read the novel as I am more of a visual person so I chose to read the graphic novel. At first, I was intrigued by the story but soon the monotony of its "philosophy" became far too apparent for me. I felt myself losing interest quickly about midway. The main character, Santiago seemed unremarkable to me as well as his journey.

sounds really good i wanna but not today

Even though I completed this story I can't say I really enjoyed it.It was a combination of fantasy and biblical.
