Tone Of The Alchemist

Good Essays
The tone of The Alchemist was adventurous, and a bit suspenseful. The writer made some parts of the story to have suspense and uncertainty, especially when it was clear that a challenge was going to come across Santiago’s way. Although there was an adventurous and suspenseful tone in The Alchemist, there was also a sense of self-realization.
