To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Teniendo en cuenta que es uno de los mejores libros que he leído en mi vida hasta ahora, en mi caso ha habido un antes y después, me ha abierto los ojos en muchas cosas y me ha llegado al alma, lo recomiendo muchísimo y más si estas perdido y necesitas encontrar tu camino, tu propósito en esta vida...
This is an excellent short book, especially for someone who is proficient, but not yet completely fluent, at Spanish. The language used is relatively simple, with grammatical structures that should be understandable to most intermediate or higher level readers of Spanish. Some vocabulary will probably be unknown to you, so as with all foreign language books, have a dictionary or online translator handy. The story is very thought-provoking, dealing with topics like purpose of life, self-discovery, and love. Overall, a charming novel that made for good Spanish practice.
Probably if you are looking in to this book you know what you are going to get,read it before or have heard of it and what it is about. All I can add after reading it myself is - greatly written stuff. If you enjoy inspirational stories,going through challenges in your life and trying your best to find your happines and follow your dreams,your goals - Plus - are learning or trying to improve Spanish - this is a perfect mix. Great stuff to read to improve and take language learning to the next level. Would recommend to read it in your native language first,or to have a good base of Spanish before attempting this one.(maybe A2-B1?) Go through a few pages on the book page on amazon and see if you understand 60-70%. If yes - go for it! :) Great book,had a good time whilst studying. Dont be discoraged if you dont understand a word here or there,there are some terms used that are applicable to those older times that are described in the book. Highly recommend this one in any language to be honest.
I bought the Alchemist and El Alquimista together and read each section in spanish first and then in English. The book layout is fantastic for this purpose. Towards the end I just glanced at English version. The story is great too.
