I read this one in two sittings, and only because I was interrupted during the first. If for no other reason, read it because it is apparently so polarizing - I'm shocked by how many people didn't just not like it, they really hated it, and on the other side, people really loved it. I loved it. I loved the central character, Santiago, his sheep, his belief in God, the symbolism in the story, and the themes, including the importance of going out and finding what you love, not just settling, and embracing life. Highly recommend!
