The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

I will neither say it as a good book nor a bad one. I liked some of the inspirational quotes, which are a little spiritual though, and the theme involved in it. The book is more spiritual and it is crystal clear that Atheists won't be holding this book for a much time. What i feel is that this book is a good page turner and there is some suspense prevailed over the few pages. The book has a good ending. The book being a translated one, the translator should be cheered up for his tremendous work. But other than these facts it is the hype of this book, which made me to put my hands over it. It can never be appraised to be an overwhelming one; i feel that this book is over-hyped.
