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. ...

Uggh! platitudes, platitudes everywhere…nor very original thing to read (sorry Mr. Coleridge ! but hey there are many good lines for seemingly deep and feel-good but very out-of-context platitudes deduced from scriptures and evolutionary science and whatnots for sharing in facebook; just superimpose them over beautiful pictures that can be easily obtained from google images and voila!). Anyways, the book reads like a diary collection of author’s one-liners and, philosophical and quotable views o ...more
I did not like Adultery. I thought I would. I read Paul Coelho. I write about adultery. How could this go awry? Well, it started with the main character. I didn’t like her. I didn’t get her. I didn’t know her. In all of my interviews with women about infidelity, in all my years being a woman, in all my years of having woman friends, I simply did not understand her. It was part nationality, part class, part life circumstance, but mostly it was a woman having an affair as told through the perspect ...more
i did not like at all!! i am disappointed at him!!
Spoiler: I really wanted her to commit suicide at the end, or at least take an overdose of the drugs she bought!!
Skidded by with a 2 rating. I'm convinced his magic is gone.
يبدو أن كويلو وضع كل قدراته الروائية في رائعته الخيميائي ولم يبقَ لديه ما يقدّمه ..
نعم هناك رسالة ، لكن القالب الروائي الذي حاول حشرها ضمنه فاشل جدا !
نجمة واحدة للاقتباسات والرسائل الجميلة فقط
أعتقد أنه سيمضي وقت طويل قبل أن أفكر في القراءة لكويلو مجددا
Adultery is Paulo Coelho's most Intimidating work so far.
I have read some Negative Reviews about this Book. However I think people hate this Book for its Main Character Linda who has PErfect Life, Perfect Husband, Good Career yet commits Adultery to bring some Excitement in her Life. But is it customary for every writer to have a Self-Righteous Lead Character ? Anyways, moving on, this Book talks about a Topic so Raw that most Women would deny even the Existence of such Emotions as potrayed in ...more
well .. it is totally different than Paulo other Novels .. I got bored many times while reading .. Paulo tackled the darkest side of human nature but he could have done it in a more interesting way
“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
