"Another of Coelho's spiritual journeys, this time by the 24-year-old protagonist who, after a failed suicide attempt, rediscovers in an insane asylum in Slovenia the preciousness and precariousness of life. Costa's translation is competent, but cannot save Coelho's novel from its by now familiar and conventionally inspirational tone and message"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.… (més)

I liked the philosophical musings put forth in this book that many think are trite and obvious. But these ideas actually get forgotten in our busy lives. We need reminders to cherish our lives daily and to not give up our dreams if they don't fit in with everyone else's idea of a good or meaningful life. Our dreams may sound crazy to others or doing what gives us pleasure may seem odd, but it might also be the only thing that makes us want to get out of bed each day. And love, in whatever form that takes, is worth taking risks for. Beautiful ideas that made what sounded like a depressing book uplifting. ( )

A 11 de Novembro de 1997, Veronika prepara-se, aparentemente, para se deitar, como todas as noites. Mas desta vez, limpa o quarto, desliga o aquecimento, lava os dentes e recolhe-se debaixo dos lençóis com um objectivo em mente. Veronika decide morrer. Esta escolha não deixa de surpreender, pois é jovem, tem um emprego razoável e vive num pequeno apartamento, desfrutando do prazer de ter o seu próprio espaço. Vai a bares e discotecas, conhece rapazes interessantes e sai com alguns. Contudo, não é feliz. Alguma coisa falta na sua vida. Por isso, da mesa-de-cabeceira tira as quatro caixas de comprimidos para dormir, tomando um de cada vez até ao fim. À medida que se aproxima da morte, Veronika percebe que cada minuto da nossa existência constitui uma escolha entre viver ou desistir. Veronika desfruta de novos prazeres e descobre que a vida tem sempre algum sentido. Mas o tempo escasseia. Veronika decidiu morrer e agora não há como voltar atrás...

I finally finished this. It was a pretty easy read, and yet it will make you think about the meaning of madness and sanity. In Spanish, we have the saying, "De artista y de loco, todos tenemos un poco. ("Of artist and mad, we all have a little bit.")

I won't give away the ending, but I will say I had mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, it seemed a bit contrived. On the other, it could be seen as a good thing. Yet a part of me wondered what if the ending would have been allowed to take a more natural course. This was the reason I only gave the book four stars instead of five, for the novel overall is really good. I think readers have to just read it and decide. The best part of the book is the premise: what if your time was counted? What would you think about? What decisions would you make? The book made me think and ask questions about myself and steps I have taken in my life, and I think that is a good thing when a book does that. In the end, I think a little madness is a very good thing, and I do my best to embrace mine.

On a final note, I think people who have thought about suicide (or attempted it) may identify with Veronika and with the book. Something to consider.

By the way, I always read Coehlo in Spanish (again, my bias that something translated from Portuguese to Spanish will likely be better), but his works are widely translated, so go get a hold of his works in whatever language works for you. I still The Alchemist is his best, but this one is very good too. ( )

Half shy, half extrovert, he had the desire to be an "artist," something that everyone in the family considered a perfect recipe for ending up a social outcast and dying in poverty.
In a world where everyone struggles to survive whatever the cost, how could one judge those people who decide to die?
