Something that was interesting was that Markus Suzak gives a lot of flashbacks, good details, some humor, emotion and a hit of surprise all that was a combination that made this novel a feast for the brain, a novel like this can make any reader interested. However, something that was bothering was that the story is too long and a bit confusing which made it a little hard to swallow. And for reader that are looking for a similar book then any one who is interested can get The Hunger Games were the main character has to face a lot of choices and The Alchemist is kind of choice filled pages too.
