The book that has most influenced my life is "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelo. I happened to be listening to NPR one day and they were interviewing the author. I was so intrigued that I went immediately to the bookstore and bought the book. Reading it is like savoring a fabulous dessert bit by bit and hoping it will never end. Since that time I have bought the book numerous times to give to various people. My son was as entranced as I was.
Not only does Coelo weave his magical words to draw the reader in, it has a surprise ending that was astonishing. This book has set me on the spiritual path of realizing there is so much more out there than most of us are aware of.
