The tone of The Alchemist is very simple and direct. The author sets it up like a fable being told by a storyteller.


The Alchemist

The tone of this novel is some combination of hopeful (as Santiago goes on his journey for his personal legend), skeptical (there are those who do not believe he will find treasure) and joyous (when he finds what he is seeking and begins his journey home).
