The first time I read this novel, I was probably most affected when Santiago and the alchemist are taken captive. At that time, I believed that Santiago wouldn't accomplish what he needed to do (turn himself into the wind), and that something would happen to the alchemist before Santiago learned everything he needed to learn.
