It may have been overhyped, and as a result, overtly trashed. However, I loved this book. It's a quick read, but it's compact. It's magical, mystical, and spiritual. It is something that is not of this world, yet so relatable. Recommended for anyone who is spiritual (not necessarily religious-there's a difference), who is open-minded, who is hopeful, who has a dream, and who is eager to hear what the author-not society- has to say.

"Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second's encounter with God and with eternity"- The Alchemist
