The Alchemist by Paulo Coehlo

alchemistA boy goes on a journey, as advised by an old wise man, to see the pyramids in Egypt. On his way, he meets a girl, and falls in love. He finally sees the pyramids, only to realize that the treasure he really sought had already been found along the way. The writing is very simple. This story is a parable expressing that it is not the destination, but the journey, of our lives, that is most important.
