The Alchemist Review

Could this be the harshest review I’ve ever written? I think so. Here’s a snippet.

One of the best selling books of all time, the 1988 novel The Alchemist by Brazilian author Paulo Coelho has been translated into 71 different languages and has so far sold 40 million copies, or 65 million according to Wikipedia. There have been talks in the last few years of big budget movie adaptations, and Coelho himself has encouraged readers to download it, which has only helped generate even more sales.

All that however doesn’t mean much when this adaptation has too many flaws to make it as widely loved as the book, which I confess I have never read.
