Adultery by Paulo Coelho
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Short chapters, staccato dialogue, easy to read, profoundly disturbing, easy to understand and simply beautiful. This is classic Coelho, author of the renowned The Alchemist. It is extraordinary how he has got under the skin of Linda, a disillusioned, depressed wife with a loving husband and two gorgeous children. She cannot shake off her feeling of gloom and doom. Enter an erotic affair and bingo, she’s alive again. How this concludes is the essence of this wonderful book. It wrings the emotions, provoking sadness, awareness, understanding, recognition and joy, embracing all the fear and wonder of what it is to be a woman. Extraordinary.

If you like Paulo Coelho you might also like to read books by Diana Cooper, John Green and Louise Erdrich.

Synopsis

Adultery by Paulo Coelho

This is the thought-provoking new novel from the international bestselling author whose words change lives. Linda knows she's lucky. Yet every morning when she opens her eyes to a so-called new day, she feels like closing them again. Her friends recommend medication. But Linda wants to feel more, not less. And so she embarks on an adventure as unexpected as it is daring, and which reawakens a side of her that she - respectable wife, loving mother, ambitious journalist - thought had disappeared. Even she can't predict what will happen next...

About the Author

Paulo Coelho

Paulo Coelho’s life remains the primary source of inspiration for his books. He has flirted with death, escaped madness, dallied with drugs, withstood torture, experimented with magic and alchemy, studied philosophy and religion, read voraciously, lost and recovered his faith and experienced the pain and pleasure of love. In searching for his own place in the world, he has discovered answers for the challenges that everyone faces. He believes that, within ourselves, we have the necessary strength to find our own destiny.

His novel The Alchemist has sold more than 65 million copies and has been cited as an inspiration by people as diverse as Malala Yousafzai and Pharrell Williams. Paulo Coelho’s books have sold more than 175 million copies worldwide. He is the writer with the most followers on social media and is the most translated living author in the world. He has won 115 international prizes and awards, has been a member of the Brazilian Academy of Letters since 2002 and in 2007 was named a United Nations Messenger of Peace.
