Here is the thing: before I read "The Alchemist" I read a very short story called "The Story of Your Life" it was just 6 or 7 pages, and unfortunately it was a very short version of "The Alchemist"!
So, when I started reading the original novel (Paulo's) I felt like I've read it before! Until I figured it all out as I approached the ending.
That's why I didn't enjoy it! I was aware of the plot and the ending already! It wasn't new to me!
Anyway, it was a very good story. Inspiring and touching. I wish I had read it first:(
