Veronika Decides to Die: A Novel of Redemption
Twenty-four-year-old Veronika seems to have everything -- youth and beauty, boyfriends and a loving family, a fulfilling job. But something is missing in her life. So, one cold November morning, she takes a handful of sleeping pills expecting never to wake up. But she does -- at a mental hospital where she is told that she has only days to live.
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. Bold and illuminating, it is a dazzling portrait of a young woman at the crossroads of despair and liberation, and a poetic, exuberant appreciation of each day as a renewed opportunity.

One of the best books i have gone through in the summer.User Review - Souradipta - Flipkart
The story progresses and sometimes fails to explain the emotions properly ,sometime it does with ease. At the end i was mesmerised with everything. Paulo Coelho does keep up with his reputation. A must read! Read full review
