From the Back Cover
Paulo Coelho's enchanting novel has inspired a devoted following around the world. This story, dazzling in its simplicity and wisdom, is about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of treasure buried in the Pyramids. Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king, and an Alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest. No one knows what the treasure is, or if Santiago will be able to surmount the obstacles along the way But what starts out as a journey to find worldly goods turns into a meditation on the treasures found within. Lush, evocative, and deeply humane, the story of Santiago is art eternal testament to the transforming power of our dreams and the importance of listening to our hearts.

First the reader - Jeremy Irons does what I would consider to be one of the best jobs ever in bringing the story to life. He brings the story to life. The characters crackle and his various voices have the listener enthralled throughout.
Second the story - I have read other reviews about the "Simple" and "not very developed characters", and I have to say the characters move the plot, the fable along. This is a simple story of faith, dedication and perservance. I listened to the story, and then took a trip with my wife and boys to see my Dad (six hours a way). My sons 16, 14 and 12 were enthralled. I put the first disc in looking for some peace and quiet on the trip (backseat arguing), and immediately stopped. After 20 minutes of quiet, I thought they were bored, and started talking to my wife in the front seat. All three boys said I was rude and should stop and listen. The entire trip down to Illinois from Minnesota was spent listening to spellbinding fable. In fact, the boys wanted to loan the book to their friends to listen. A great, peaceful trip and a fable (listened to and enjoyed). Simply fantastic.
