My favourite quote from the book is -
'To realise one's destiny is a person's only obligation.'
The book follows a Spanish shepherd boy's journey to find 'treasure' as it was...but the long journey was really just a map back to his own truths and core.
As a Spanish person, I loved reading Paulo's description of the country and as a lover of adventure, I couldn't stop reading to find out the next step in the path of Santiago.
Self transformation, universal magic and evocative language are just the start to this remarkable book. It shows the power of our dreams and absolute need to listen to our hearts. For this journey we are on, can be magnificent and filled with light, if we just trust in ourselves, our hopes and be brave enough to follow the clues to our centre!
A fantastic read!!!!!
