I'm reading The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. This is my first book from him and I decided to read it because a friend of mine recommended it and I also wanted to know why he is so spread nowadays. I didn't know what this book is about I just picked it because it is not too long and is quite famous. I have read about 70 pages of it and I must say it is interesting. It has its own, slow pace, adventurous I might say but not in the way the others book I've recently read (e.g. Twilight). It makes you think about life in general, what is important, makes you ask yourself questions about your own life, your future. I have never read a book like this, and I'm not saying I'm gonna read all of his book but this one is definitely worth reading.
