The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
Translated from the Portuguese by Alan R. Clarke
A lovely fable with a simple moral about listening to your heart and following your dreams. For me it was also about the journey itself, who you meet and what you learn along the way. A quick, easy read, but not life-changing or particularly original.
"There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure."
