I really enjoyed Paulo Coelho's new book Adultery
on 22 September 2014
I really enjoyed Paulo Coelho's new book Adultery. Once again, as with The Alchemist, he looks into the human condition and asks the question, What makes us happy? The story is about a woman in her thirties who has a loving husband, two beautiful children, a fabulous home and a great job, yet she is not happy and wonders if there is going to be anything more in her life. Is this it? She is in need of excitement but feels guilty, as she knows that she has everything and more than most people could ever want. Paulo understands people so well. He knows how they think, how they look at life, what they expect, what makes them tick and I laughed in places when his thoughts were so in line with my own. When she embarks on her affair she realises that it is not making her any happier, and indeed feels full of guilt. She goes away with her husband for a weekend and manages to find the answer to her question. I would recommend this book to everyone, especially if you enjoyed The Alchemist.
