Good books can give you a lifetime of experience. So it is essential to read books as they are a great source of knowledge.
Today I am going to review a famous book which can be enlightening that will help your inner queries.

Author: Paulo Coelho.

Review: Obstacles are there in the paths of chasing your dreams. But we must not forget the fact that if we are dreaming then we must complete it, as it is one of the important purposes of our life.
The plot centers around a young shepherd boy and his journey towards his dream.
There are few twist and turns in this book as well. There is a girl,a few ships, a mysterious man, pyramid, Africa, heat and a lot more other things.
In this book we look into a journey and we get many answers related to our every day life. So in a way it is also a journey of us as well.
“The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil in the spoon”. The story contains such good lines that can help to have a better perspective in life.
But sometimes while reading this book, the story seems scattered. Its pieces are felt everywhere.
The scene where the shepherd and the mysterious man meet, feels really long and somewhat boring. Also there are few places where the characterization and setting seem really bleak and mute. Overall this book is an amazing discovery for those who feel distressed while chasing their dreams. It will teach us, how one can achieve his dream by consistently trying for it.
