Publisher Description

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.

Amirtg1 ,

I am 31 and still clueless of my being

I ask God everyday why he made me the world doesn't really need me, I don't have anything to give to this world but He doesn't answer, I even ask for hints no hints either!!

This book made me feel like I am not the only one may be there is still some hope!!

Simplistic, trite, condescending

And poorly written.

This is right up there with the Alchemist. A truly amazing novel that leaves you wanting more and more. Paulo Coelho never disappoints!
