The foreshadowing in this novel prepares readers for decisions Santiago will make later on. This idea is evident when Santiago is explaining to the king why he is shepherd. "They wanted me to be a priest, but I decided to become a shepherd." "Because you really like to travel."" (Coelho 18). When the King completes Santiago's claim by saying that he loves to travel, an inference can be that he will make decisions that will keep him traveling. For example, he decides to keep going on his personal legend instead of staying with Fatima. Nonconformity is seen when Santiago tells the King that even though his parents want him to be a priest, he decides to become a shepherd. In using foreshadowing, Coelho also manages to implant symbolism in the same idea.
What is the purpose of the trip the two travelers are taking? (The narrator never tells us, but the careful reader can deduce this with relative certainty.)

“William wanted to hear more of this man’s stories…whether they were true or not. Perhaps it didn’t matter if any one man’s stories were true. If Fekadu wasn’t describing his own pain and loneliness, then he might have been accidentally describing the pain of a real and lonely man”(65).

William, the main character, leads the restless life of an assiduous business man. Although he loves his family dearly, he is unable to spend sufficient quality time with them. On his way to the airport, he engages in a conversation with the taxi driver, Fekadu, whom divulges events from his previous years. In sharing his life story, Fekadu greatly influences William to change his way of living. Although William has trouble believing some aspects of the story, he knows that somewhere, someone was suffering the events described by the taxi driver. Although Fekadu’s story may not have been true, it caused William reassess his priorities.

Society as a whole and as the individuals comprised of it tend to judge what does not conform to their standards or norms. Similarly, society and its individuals tend to experience a sense of offence or discomfort when being judged themselves. Therefore, as stated by Alain de Botton in his novel “Status Anxiety,” it is a humorists’ primary goal to utilize satire in order to effectively convey messages of reform and change within society. This should be done in a matter where the main issue of concern is not stated directly so as to spare the danger of hurt feelings that is associated with it. A perfect example of the importance of this issue is in the current state of American society, most especially when concerning politics. Evidence of this can be

Also, it describes when Steinbeck wants so badly to give the waitress a tip, but he doesn’t because he believes that she won’t take it. I believe the message that John
