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.

If people don't like it, they can complain. Everyone is indeed crazy, but the craziest are the ones who don't know they're crazy; they just keep repeating what others tell them to.
Whoever drank that water would go mad. The following morning, the whole population drank from the well and they all went mad, apart from the king and his family, who had a well set aside for them alone, which the magician had not managed to poison.
The king was worried and tried to control the population by issuing a series of edicts governing security and public health. When the inhabitants of the kingdom heard these decrees, they became convinced that the king had gone mad and was now giving nonsensical orders.

Although this book does start negatively and you may feel depressed reading the first few pages but I want to tell you that hold on it does get better in the end.
Also if you are someone who likes to read peculiar love stories than this book might be it but by saying this that if you think that this book is some romance novel than no but it does feature peculiar romance towards the end.
I don't think this book is for everyone, you'll either love it or hate it, in my opinion, I loved this book and I might even read it again in the future.
Some of my favorite lines from the book are below. I want to continue being mad, living my life the way I dream it, and not the way other people want it to be.
The "mad" always believe in first impressions Although she had always felt loved and protected, there had been one missing element that would have transformed that love into a blessing, she should have allowed herself to be a little madder.
At 24, Veronika decides she has experienced everything she has to experience with her life and the only thing now left for her to do is die and so she decides to take her own life by overdosing on sleeping pills.
However, her attempted suicide fails and she ends up waking, after a week in coma, in Villette a local hospital and institution for mental patients where Dr.
Igor tells her that her suicide attempt has left her with a very weak heart and she has only a few days left to live so she shoul At 24, Veronika decides she has experienced everything she has to experience with her life and the only thing now left for her to do is die and so she decides to take her own life by overdosing on sleeping pills.
Igor tells her that her suicide attempt has left her with a very weak heart and she has only a few days left to live so she should rejoice and just wait for her death as it was what she had wanted in the first place.
But while waiting for her death, Veronika meets the other 'mental' patients and gets to know their stories and during this time she begins to question her beliefs and ideas about life and what 'living each moment of our life fully' actually means According to Paulo Coehlo, 'mad people' are not really mad after all I haven't read much of Paulo Coehlo's books after the Alchemist this is the second book mainly because philosophy is not something I am a huge fan of but this book is quite nice Mar 19, Norah Una Sumner rated it liked it Shelves: adult , romance , family-theme , psychology , read-in-serbian , great-male-characters , 3-star-read , contemporary.
Giving this book 3 stars simply because I like Eduard. I've read three books by Paulo Coehlo so far- Veronika Decides to Die , The Devil and Miss Prym and The Alchemist.
And even though I gave three stars to all three of them,I keep going back to Coehlo. I love his characters,I guess that's what I like the most about his books.
And his endings are the best. Nov 14, Bharath rajeswaran rated it it was ok Recommends it for: all the irritated teens.
I actually was glancing through a book shop and when suddenly this book caught my attention. I 've previously read The Alchemist and i thoroughly enjoyed it.
But veronica was pretty awesome. In a sense, it was the truth of the western world and will be applicable to the eastern world which is actually involved all the time in copying the west.

And from a very depressed state, with no great ambitions or desire in everyday life, veronica decides that life is not worthy of living and after a failed attempt to end her life, she wakes up in a totally unexpected place, the home of the mentally depressed.
And she finds the anger, desire, hope and above all love in that place. I could not but admire the skillful way in which the story is narrated and i really really have become a big fan of paulo coelho.
The story is complicated and simply, paradoxical and inspirational.. The character of Edward is still making me admire the novel and actually it took 3 and a half hours for me to finish the novel standing the book shop itself, as i am not so rich to possess a copy of it.
It is a transformation from irritation to hope, from disgust to pleasure. Please guys read it. Read it. It's as pacy as a shoaib akhtar delivery and as interesting as a spielberg movie.
But you always get one thing on extra which you don't get in ss movie or sa delivery, that's what i call and still admire the novel for"LIFE" Apr 13, James rated it it was ok.
Coelho's novel attempts some kind of analysis of what it is to be mentally ill and how society treats 'the mad' - but again it's a flawed discussion and ultimately very superficial.
There are the easy and undeniably true aphorisms here about the 'fragility of existence' and 'an awareness of death encouraging us to live more intensly' but to what end?
After an intriguing and promising start to the novel, unfortunately 'Veronica' descends into cliche and ultimately almost incoherent nonsense.
Dissapointing to say the least and very much a missed opportunity. View 1 comment. Nov 01, Tony Le rated it it was amazing.
This book is not for every one to read. Only misfortunate people who had or have a distressing and excruciating experience with depressions and panic attacks would really understand the words of Paulo Coelho in Veronika Decides to Die.
Jul 06, Sushi rated it liked it. But fate has something entirely different set in store for her. Waking up in a mental asylum a couple of days later, Veronika's told that she will get what she desired for: her death.
The attempt at her own life has damaged her heart irrevocably and now her days are numbered. Just like that, her worst nightmare comes alive: waiting for death.
So what is it that made Veronika call quits? She "Death frees from the fear of dying. She's gorgeous, desirable, young, loved, and has her whole life ahead of her.
What could possibly make her go against the natural order of things, which is to fight for survival whatever happens?
It's not her past, and it's not fear for her future either. It's something else entirely. At the institution, she meets and befriends people from all walks of life: from old women who stay simply because they love it there to handsome Schizophrenics.
Together, they argue sanity and what it is that makes life really worth living. Music and love save her, yet her time-bomb heart won't stop its' taunting Paulo Coelhos' books have always been a source of inspiration to me, acting as an instant pick-me-up, so I would suggest this to anybody who needs a healthy dose of hope and doesn't mind being enlightened with a bit of philosophy in between.
Sep 11, Florentina rated it really liked it Shelves: inspiration , sef-growing , drama , touching. What a shocking novel! In general I like Paulo Coelho books but this one is specially good, I think that is my favourite one.
I love the way he approaches to tough issues like suicide or mental illness. This is a book that without any doubt I will recumbent to everyone that want to rediscover the meaning of life and the power of death to start living the life we always wanted and not the life that we are supposed to life.
Apr 04, FractalHealing rated it it was amazing. If it was, it is safe to say that , that particular mission is accomplished as far as I am concerned.
This book was first published in the year ISBN 0I The central theme of the book, contrary to what its title suggests is, living life to the fullest.
Predominantly set in a mental asylum, the tone and content of the book is cathartic. I salute and thank the author for keeping his promise to himself back in the 60s, the one he made to document the wisdom he gathered from his personal experiences in various mental asylums.
Someone needed to speak for the misunderstood and perhaps feared non-conformists across the world. But more importantly Coelho dips further into his wisdom and largess to offer an alternative to succumbing to this excruciating existence.
I would consider this book a self-help book for those that are non-conformists and for those that are not it is a revealing psychological journey into minds of people that are more in touch with their soul.
Precise, accurate but colloquial. In order to make all his points realistically he has created more than one character and pointed out the commonalities as well as discrepancies of their circumstances.
He has brilliantly used chronology, political milieu, family dynamics, etc. Most fascinating is his usage of an irony within an irony, as he describes the mental asylum as the place where people are not only unexpectedly cured of their maladies but also for the exact opposite reason as the society would imagine academically.
Coelho creates the perfect arena to spot light not only the dues one pays to live in a society organized by the majority but also the ramifications of paying those dues for certain individuals who are in minority.
I accidentally came upon this book. It has validated, clarified and accentuated many of my suspicions and beliefs accordingly. All the characters described are those that have their lives cut out for them by an over indulgent resourceful and expectant family.
They are partially self actualized individuals. One is supported by ones own conscience as well as by the society at large when one stands up against abuse.
But when one is suffocated and smothered by love it can be extremely confusing to even think of charting an action plan to exit the maze.
Among the many goals of the novel, one is certainly to bring hope to people who dance to the music in their head or march to the beat of their own drum.
And this novel does just that brilliantly and not to mention realistically. I believe everyone comes to a point in their lives when they need this book.
When you lay your hands on it, I strongly recommend you to read it and mull over it. There is much to be learnt and accepted in spite of the simplicity of the presentation.
Dec 16, K. Recommended to K. Shelves: core. Fiction can be classified into two broad categories: 1 Escape literature - written purely for entertainment to help us pass the time agreeably and 2 Interpretative Literature - written to broaden and deepen and sharpen our awareness of life.
Escape literature takes us away from the real world; it enables us temporarily to forget our troubles. Interpretative literature takes us, through the imagination, deeper into the real world: it enables us to understand our troubles.

Escape literature has pleasure as its only object. Interpretative literature has as its object pleasure plus understanding.
Source: Perrines Literature The reason why I thought I should quote this is to differentiate Haruki Murakami's Kafka on the Shore with this novel of Paulo Coelho, Veronika Decides to Die.
Kafka is more of escape literature while Veronika is more of interpretative. I said more because at times the other type comes in but if you look at the totality, there is a dominate type.
This is my second book by Mr. Coelho and I thought I prefer this than his The Alchemist. For me this is more honest as it reflects life as it is.
A couple of decades ago, when I was taking my second college degree at DLSU-CSB-CDD, our professor asked us: "Who among you have thought of committing suicide?
Almost everybody raised their hands except me and my friend. The class was composed mostly of young kids from rich families I was an exception and it never came into my mind how could these moneyed souls could have thought of taking their own lives.
Veronika , a year old main protagonist of this novel, is exactly in the same league as that of my classmates.
Yet, she tried killing herself so she had to stay in an asylum, Villete. Reason: boredom. There are other 3 main characters in the novel: Zedka , the diabetic woman who went crazy after she thought that she did not fight for her happiness as a mistress; Mari , the lady lawyer who did not go insane but chose to be live in the asylum to fix her marriage and Eduard , another rich kid - only child - who went crazy because of his parents' excessive love and attention.
If a novel is an interpretative literature, does it have to be boring? The answer is no. Veronika offer a roller coaster of emotions.
I laughed out load twice: in that scene when Dr. Igor, the asylum head, talks to Veronika's mother. I almost got teary eyed in the scene when Veronika was supposed to die and she and Eduard went up to the castle.
Very moving parts. Saw those in The Alchemist. I would say, very Coelho. Is there a "pure entertainment" part?
Yes, there is a sex part I did not know that Coelho is also into sex : there is a part when Veronika masturbated in full abandon in front of Eduard.
There is also this quote on page "It seemed that everyone, a least once in their life, wanted to take part in an orgy" And Mr.

They do not see how she despairs at their constraints. In spite of herself and in spite of her disappointment with her materialistic life, Veronika finds renewed purpose through playing the asylum's piano and through observing and then connecting with the schizophrenic Edward.
Not only does she recover her own will to live, Veronika helps bring Edward out of his catatonic state , and the pair soon "escape" Dr.
Blake, looking out his window, observes them escaping, but does not send for anyone to bring them back from the asylum together, determined to enjoy Veronika's final days as a couple.
Veronika does not know that her aneurysm is the invention of her unorthodox psychiatrist Dr. Blake, who is testing his theory that convincing her she has only weeks to live will restore her to health and cure her desire to commit suicide.
He explains his treatment through letter to his estranged wife , a colleague from the asylum. As long as she does not know the truth, he theorizes, she will consider each day as if it might be her last and thus treasure it.
