Not what I was expecting after reading the Alchemist
Reviewed in the United States on October 14, 2011
I wouldn't suggest this book, but it could be just where I am at on my path in life. I did not find it particularly interesting or inspiring. I kept reading though hoping it was going to get better.
One interesting part to me though from the perspective that it was based on events from his actual life supposedly, kind of scary actually, he was into..I will call it the "dark side" of things before coming over to the "other side" and it tells about his experience and how it led to his path to the good side. Otherwise I did not get much from the book.
Oh the most positive thing I took from the book which I never thought about before is when you look up and towards the horizon it changes your view of everything vs looking slightly down or straight ahead......I guess that applies literally and figuratively also as in positive uplifting thoughts vs negative thoughts.
