The Alchemist

Postby Geoff » Thu Apr 12, 2012 3:48 am

I don't think we have mentioned this cute book that has sold over 20 million copies, and was one of the earlier ones by Paulo Coehlo. I think his second book, but the one that has made him famous.

I was re-reading it, suspecting that since it is about six years since i first read it, I would probably spot something I missed last time.

Bingo. The "angel", called Melkizadek, King of Salem, who appears to the shepherd and requires one tenth of his flock in payment for advice, mentions in passing he only spoke to Abraham once.

How does Paulo Coelho know Melkizadek is an angel? It's these sort of snippets make me wish I could know more about the guy.

Love commands the universe. Man only resorts to control when love is missing.
