Pretty, single, year-old Veronika decides to die for two reasons, both of them phony: She then takes a lot of sleeping pills.
While waiting to die, as if she’s waiting for her cat to finish drinking its milk, Veronika decides to read a magazine and then write to the editor of that magazine. Which made the scene cartoonish.
Veronika Decides to Die – Wikipedia
This rare combination of phoniness and cartoonishness gelled and Pretty, single, year-old Veronika livvro to die for two reasons, both of them phony: This rare combination of phoniness and cartoonishness gelled and gave birth to this masterpiece.
A masterpiece of nothingness, like a gigantic void proud of its vast emptiness. Paolo Coelho is like a god, not only to those who worship him, for he has created something out of nothing using the time-tested mrrer of hoodwinking morons who read books like this: Gripping their highlighters, these morons would then make passages like this shine in neon, marvel at how deep they are, and then give the book a 5-star rating at goodreads.
But if you look up at the starry sky, you’ll see that all the different worlds up morrrer combine to form constellations, solar systems, galaxies. He could have added: If you feel all alone in this big, wide world as if you carry the weight of all the sadness there is, then look up at the starry, starry sky during a starry, starry night and realize that there are aliens living in all those other planets who, in their solitude, likewise pine for the morret they cannot see.
Damn, I sure do sound better than Coelho! View all 94 comments.

Deccide she veonika an overdose of sleeping pills, Veronika wakes up in a mental asylum and the remainder of the book is, basically, a series of interactions between Veronika and a number of the inhabitants of the asylum, including a young schizophrenic named Eduard, who mainly stands around mutely and masturbates while Veronika plays the piano.
I suppose, that tells you pretty much everything you need to know about Veronika, and certainly Coelho does not add much else in terms of characterisation. Some veronia have pointed out that to create vernika characters or believable plot is not the point of this veronlka and certainly not Coelho’s intention. Paulo Coelho himself makes a brief and pointless appearance at the beginning of the book to tell you that it is based on his own experiences as a mental patient and proceeds to bash you over the head with his message, which is that everyone is crazy, insanity and genius are two sides of the same coin and we should all let our inner freak out and stop trying to conform.
As a reader, I find this approach supremely unsatisfactory.
For some reason, I tend to be much veronija receptive to the message when I can actually bring myself to care about the story or the characters, however unsympathetic they may be.
I am sometimes able to forgive lack of plot or character development if the livroo is particularly informative or beautifully written or manages to turn me on or makes me think about a subject in a new and interesting way. Unfortunately, this book did none of that.
Veronika fails even as a placeholder because her actions are so absurd and incomprehensible that I was completely unable to relate to them or to put myself in her shoes. So all that was left was the message and I had absolutely no patience for Coelho’s particular brand of preachy self-help pop-psychology. View all 17 comments. Vitriol was a toxic substance whose symptoms he had identified in his conversations with the men and women he had met.
Now he was writing a thesis on moerer subject, which he would submit to the Slovenian Academy of Sciences for its scrutiny. It was the most important step in this shitty, whiny book in a nutshell, which is all it deserves: It was the most important step in the field of insanity since Dr. Pinel had ordered that patients should be unshackled, astonishing the medical world with the idea that some of them might even be cured. As with the libido—the chemical reaction vernika for sexual desire, which Dr.
Freud had identified, but which no laboratory had ever managed to isolate—Vitriol was released by the human veronima whenever a person found him- or herself in a frightening situation, although it had yet to be picked up in any spectrographic tests. It was easily recognized, though, by its taste, which was neither sweet nor savory—a bitter taste. Igor, the as-yet-unrecognized discoverer of this fatal substance, had given it the name of a poison much favored in the past by emperors, kings, and lovers of all kinds whenever they needed to rid themselves of some obstructive person.

Veronika is a young Slovenian woman who decides to kill herself because her youth is almost gone and the world is a fucked up place. Yes, she is Slovenian. What do you mean why? I don’t know why! I guess it’s more exotic this way.
Ugh, I’m talking to myself The best way to describe this book is: Ugh, I’m talking to myself again. Paulo Coelho is driving me nuts! So, yeah, she overdoses on sleeping pills, but being the lame loser that she is, she doesn’t end up six feet underground, but in a mental institution where she is told she only has one week to live.
I deckde laughed out loud at that. You then follow her interactions with a bunch of uninteresting characters, a schizophrenic guy named Eduard being one of them. Eduard is not a totally uninteresting guy. He’s a little kinky and vecide and creepy because he likes watching Veronika masturbate while she plays the piano.
Didn’t see that coming. I mean, Eduard never deccide, he’s basically a recluse, but after this scene these two weirdos inexplicably fall in love. Morreer this isn’t even the best part.
The best part is the ending. Veronika isn’t sick, it was all a freakish experiment you know, in the name of science and of course it worked because now Veronika doesn’t want to die anymore and she’s gonna live happily ever after with her rich creepy boyfriend Eduard. I’m waiting for “Veronika Decides to Die – a graphic novel”. View all 19 comments.

I think the worst part for me is that the author chose to write the second chapter about himself. Generally speaking, I think it’s admirable that he wanted to protect This was really the worst book I’ve ever read. Generally speaking, I think it’s admirable that he wanted to protect his parents by not writing about his own institutionalization, but making himself a character in the novel and explaining his reasons for writing the book rather defeated the purpose.
It also took me right out of the novel and made it impossible for me to get back into it. View all 5 comments.

Veronika Decide Morrer by Paulo Coelho (1 star ratings)
I totally, completely and utterly fail to understand this book. However, as typically befalls me when I read a book by Paolo Coelho, I seem to recall a moment about four-fifths of the way to the end when I had an epiphanic moment – when I realised that although I had loathed the book from the start until that exact sentence, I suddenly morer it and could comprehend and possibly even accept though grudgingly that other people could like it and that it could possibly qualify as a Good Book.
However, in a similarly typical manner, I reached the end of the book and could not for the life of me remember anything about that epiphanic moment apart from the fact that it occurred. As such, it rates one star because it is painfully bad.
Furthermore, I have yet to see or hear anything that even begins to make it clear to me why so many otherwise-sane people seem to love it so much. I’m bored and dscide so mkrrer to see if anyone else can give me an answer.
