Here is the book's trailer:
Here are some interesting tidbits of information that I learned about the book from Wikipedia:
-The book was originally published in Portuguese in 1988.
-It has now been translated into over 65 languages, the most of any book with a living author.
-There has never been a big marketing campaign set up to sell the book, rather, most people select it based on a word-of-mouth recommendation from a friend.
The main theme of the book: To find your treasure you must discover and follow your own personal legend. "Those who don't understand their personal legends will fail to comprehend its teachings;" and "When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it."
Even though I am not a huge graphic novel fan, I enjoyed this adaptation of The Alchemist very much and can recommend it without reservation.
