A Book Review

I recently finished reading the book Veronika Decides To Die, by Paulo Coelho. The author of the bestselling novels, The Alchemist and Eleven Minutes. It is the first book i read by Paulo Coelho. 'Veronika decides to die' is a very inspiring book. Paulo throughout the book gets you thinking. He asks questions that are very deep. Veronika takes pills to die, but she doesn't and ends up in a mental hospital.She discovers she has a bad heart, and is convinced that she won't leave Villete-the hospital alive. But eventually her view about life and death changes. Paulo's way of writing needs your full attention. At least that's the way i feel. I cant read the book with noise around. I liked the book and i do recommend it =) I'm looking forward to read Eleven Minutes

I’m a big fan of Paulo Coelho! You will love this! He’s the first best-selling author to be distributing for free his works on his blog:

Have a nice day!
