I wish I could understand Portuguese to read the novel in its original form, because at times I felt the translation too simplistic. But at least you don't need to care for the symbolism or philosophy as long as you can make your journey with the author !

after Alchemist comes Zahir
The zahir is said the Novel of Obsession...like The Alchemist was a Fable About Following Dream. Another best seller from Paolo Choelho. The Alchemist was mesmerizing ... I've just started to read the other one, hope it will not disappoint me.
