I chose this book because, it looked very interesting and i like adventurous books.
My favorite part of the book is when he set out on his quest to find his personal legend and to find the treasure buried beneath the Egyptian Pyramids. I also liked how Santiago never stopped until he found the treasure.
In my opinion this book.... Is one of the best books I have ever read!
Some reasons I liked/disliked the book..... I liked this book because it was a comic book, the pictures made the book more interesting, and I liked the story line, and how the Alchemist never let anything in his way when he was trying to find the treasure and his personal legend. What I didn't like about this book is how much history it had in it. Also it needs a little more detail, and it was very confusing.


I would rate this book 4 stars. Because it needs a little more detail and needs to make a little more sense.


I would recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure.

My overall rating
