Now we’re on with the second discussion for book #6, the quickest read in bookclub history. This time I thought we should try to approach a couple of the questions listed in the Plus: Insights, Interviews, and More! section at the end of the book. With that in mind, following are some key questions for you to ponder and post about in the comment section:
- Do you agree with Santiago or the crystal merchant with regard to dreams – is having the dream or achieving it more important?
- Can you define your ‘Personal Legend’? When were you able to first act on it? Did you experience beginner’s luck in pursuing your Legend? Have you experienced obstacles along the way? What, if anything, more will you need to be successful in reaching your Personal Legend?
Those are just a sample of the thought-provoking questions that are found in the book. Do feel free to answer here or just to think about them on your own. Or maybe you’d like to post an overall opinion that you have about the book? In any case, Coelho really has given us much to consider in The Alchemist.
