I read the entire book in one night, and I read about .0000000001 words per hour.

Superb story.

Although I have not personally heard this full book, it was Jeremy Irons narration of this audio book that had my father recommending it to me - and then I read the book and was inspired by the tail.

Spoiler Alert! The main character finds out that what he was looking for was at home all along. Now Twist! I didn't really spoil anything - because this book is all about what is in a journey. I read this book every year to be able to remind myself, that life is about experiencing the twists and turns of the journey. This book is a delight and inspires you to find your own adventure - waiting in your very own backyard. Spoiler Alert! The main character finds out that what he was looking for was at home all along.

There is a red sticker on the CD version that says CD #3 is flawed, but actually, it is completely fine. No skips or flaws at all.....

I read this book when I was in High School and found it very inspiring. It made me dream :)

I have not read the novel as I am more of a visual person so I chose to read the graphic novel. At first, I was intrigued by the story but soon the monotony of its "philosophy" became far too apparent for me. I felt myself losing interest quickly about midway. The main character, Santiago seemed unremarkable to me as well as his journey.

sounds really good i wanna but not today
