The original novel, The Alchemist, is one of my sister-in-law’s favorite books.  She has been wanting me to read it for years and I have been fighting it. I didn’t think it was a story I would enjoy and I would end up suffering until the end. So when I discovered that there was a graphic novel version, I thought it would be an excellent way to try the story without committing too much time. While I didn’t love the book, I definitely think anyone a fan of The Alchemist and Paulo Coelho should read it. It was very well done and even Coelho states in his intro that he is happy with outcome. I also felt the graphics were phenomenal and give kudos to Daniel Sampere.
