A wonderful book. It will definitely give one with an open mind and heart an interesting perspective on what we consider "crazy" in today's society. It's also quite a statement on how we view death, the fear of it, and one's will to live.
Touching and mildly disturbing, causing introspection and understanding of self. An enjoyable and entertaining read.
Great delicious book, about that veronica tries to suicide her self, but fell to die and that's a lesson to learn about life not even oneself have the right to end the life, only god does! believe!
I loved The Alchemist so much that when I read some of the author's other books, I found it difficult to enjoy them as much as I did The Alchemist. Veronika Decides to Die was fairly good but sometimes it felt a bit strange and incomplete.
The alchemist and this book are my favorite of all paulo coelho's book's!!!
I used to like his books. But now - there is no initial admiration.
He repeats himself in many ways, changing only names and places.
And his obsession with orgasms! The impression is that without them one cannot exist and feel satisfied.
My favorite of Coelho's books, by far. While the title would make you think otherwise, this is actually a very uplifting, inspiring story.
From the book cover: "Inspired by events in Coelho's own life, Veronika Decides to Die questions the meaning of madness and celebrates individuals who do not fit into patterns society considers to be normal."
This book really makes you think, but in a good way. It's about life's decisions and why we make the choices we do. and why we tend to always take an easier route than the truly grand schemes we all could live. Life takes courage, and often we don't credit ourselves with having the courage to do things, when we really do, we're just so used to people, ourselves included, getting the shaft, so we play it safe as if it''s a card game we're betting on rather than the great game of life.
Read it. it's worth it
