Mila recommends...

Veronika Decides to Die is truly the best book I have read. There are so many truths about life and so many lessons that can change one's view on the world, that I do not think it is necessary to say what it is about. Read it and you will see. What I want to say is that Paolo Coehlo's style, simple and pure, can grab the attention of the reader from the first sentence and keep it until the end. I hope it will bring you the same relief and inner peace it brought me.

Ms. Potash's note: I liked By The River Piedra I sat down and Wept, The Devil and Miss Prym and The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho - books with similar themes about living life.


  1. The only book I've read by Paulo Coelho is "Eleven Minutes" and I really enjoyed it. So probably I'll read this one during the Christmas break.

  2. I was thinking about reading a book of his, but i was wondering which one exactly. I guess now I know where I will start from.

  3. Nooooooo. Read The Devil and Miss Prim first! Please, it is the best book he has ever written! It is one of my favorite books. Paulo Coelho is simply a genius...

  4. I will try to find some time to read it, because I've always wanted to read some of Coelho's books, but I never knew which one to start. Now I know :].

  5. This summary definitely grabbed my attention, so I guess my next book would be 'Veronika decides to die' :)

  6. Even though I do not like Coelho much, I enjoyed this book a lot. It is definitely one of my favorites. :)
