Have read book years ago but enjoyed audio version. The 4 for performance was due to chapter numbers out of sync, chapter on screen would say 15 but voice would say 14.

Actual performance of voice was very good.

Paulo Coelho's enchanting novel has inspired a devoted following around the world. This story, dazzling in its simplicity and wisdom, is about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of treasure buried in the Pyramids. Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king, and an Alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest.
