Quote from the blurb

'This is the story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who dreams of travelling the world in search of a treasure as extravagant as any ever found. From his homw in Spain he journeys to the exotic markets of Tangiers and then into the Egyptian desert, where a fateful encounter awaits him.'

I got this book throught the post when I was in Egypt. I had no idea what it was about, I just wanted to read it as it is on "The Top 100 Books" List which I want to read my way through. So I found I funny that just after I myself had visited the pyramids, the Character in this book is trying to visit them too! I did quite enjoy this book, even though I'm not too sure I quite followed it all the time. I loved the message though - follow your dreams. It may not be a smooth path, but it is worth it in the end. I plan to release it next as I think as many people as possible should get to read this story. Thank you again so much MKtiny!!!
