This is a dramatic story of love, life and death and shows us that life is only as good as you make it.  As with all Coelho’s novels it is written with sparing prose that is as ever cleverly crafted.

Veronika Decides to Die Synopsis

Veronika has everything she could wish for – young and pretty, with plenty of attractive boyfriends, a steady job, loving family. Yet Veronika is not happy and one winter's morning takes an overdose of sleeping pills, only to wake up some time later in the local hospital. There she is told that although she is alive, her heart is now irreparably damaged and she has only a few days to live…

This story follows her through these intense days as she starts question all her ideas about life. Soon she comes to realise that every second of existence is a choice we all make between living and dying. This is a moving and uplifting song to life, one that reminds us that every moment in our lives is special and precious
