July Books 11) The Alchemist

11) The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho

To be honest, not wildly impressed by this story of the boy who goes to find his Personal Legend in the desert. I think I might have found it deep and meaningful when I was 14. But the images seemed pretty heavy-handed to me now. If I want to read spiritual literature I’ll go straight to the real thing.
