I want to change. I need to change. I'm gradually losing touch with myself. Adultery, the provocative new novel by Paulo Coelho, best-selling author of The Alchemist and Eleven Minutes, explores the question of what it means to live life fully and happily, finding the balance between life's routine and the desire for something new. ...

I'm glad to read a new genre by Paulo Coelho which falls more into literary fiction. As with most of the writers who get famous for a particular genre, readers who are familiar with his earlier works are quick to dismiss and criticize a book where they were expecting a different outcome.
In this story, Coelho shows the monster, that which resides in each of us, coming up with revenge. Through the life of the main character, feelings of dissatisfaction and inadequacy come to surface - if her life ...more
“To conquer frustration, one must remain intensely focused on the outcome, not the obstacles.”
Paulo Coelho, the international bestselling author, has penned a compelling tale of love and infidelity mixed with the good ol' Coelho style of philosophy in his book, Adultery. This story is centered around a married woman who is lucky enough to have a good, rich and loving husband and two beautiful kids and a grand house, yet she still longs for some drama in her marriage to be specif ...more
To say this is a book about a woman committing adultery is to miss the whole point of the story I feel. Linda lives in Switzerland with her husband and two children - none of whom are ever named. She has a good life, and an interesting job as a journalist and as a family they are financially secure with domestic staff to look after the children and do the housework. Who could want anything more from life?
But Linda is restless and bored. It would be all too easy to dismiss Linda as shallow but sh ...more
Waste of time.
It is not a story about love. It's a story about adrenaline rush and how bit of excitement and doing something different and new with your husband can save your marriage.
Its a story of egoistic and bored woman who has everything- money, lovely kids, bit dull but understanding and loving husband, respectable job. But she is not happy... Kinda depressed, or maybe not really, she is not sure herself. So she goes off and give this ex boyfriend of hers a b ...more
روايه سيئه وممله لأبعد الحدود
الكاتب أسلوبه أرشق من ذلك ولكنه هنا يضعنا أمام الملل الذي يصيب الأزواج وأشواقهم للتغير عبر الخيانه
الأفكار مستهلكه ،لا جديد لا حكمه لا موعظه لا فكره لا شيء نستفيد منه
ممله بصفحات كثيره كان يمكن إختصارها
الكتاب بعض الأحيان يصيبهم الإفلاس الإبداعي وهذه الروايه إحدى هذه الإفلاسات لكاتب كبير
لم أكملها لكل تلك الأسباب ولست نادم علي عدم إكمالها
I would have rated it ZERO stars it that were possible. Don't waste your time reading this crap, it's not worth it. Glad I didn't waste my money as well, in you're curious just borrow it from someone.
In the world, there is this invisible thread that connects us to one another. Unfortunately for the human race, most people aren't aware of it's existence or ever get to feel it's pull on their beings. This in turn, throws us into a constant state of despair because our souls feel there is something missing but misconstrue what that thing is.
In essence, that is what Adultery, by Paulo Coelho is about. A woman of great material fortune begins to feel the emptiness in her life as she is going thro ...more
