I have bought several different copies and versions of this book because I loved it so much and always feel compelled to share it. Coelho is a genius of story telling and pulling you into his web. 5 star read all the way!!

This was a very interesting book. What really qualifies us as crazy or normal?

This is a very thought provoking story. The characters are interesting and fun to get to know and understand what makes them who they are. Does your situation define your attitude ? Makes you think.

Veronika at age twenty-four decides she has lived enough and it's time to die. She ends up in a mental hospital and learns how to live. I thought "The Alchemist" would remain my favorite Coelho book, but this one is close or at least tied for first. It's a wonder story about free thinkers, the 'insane', and community. Like most Coelho books, this book reminds us it's okay to not be average, though one must be very careful in a world that prizes and rewards average. The characters Mr. Coelho has created come to life as he has situation after situation where we, through his characters, are forced to re-evaluate ourselves. It was a wonderful book and very positive. I loved the doctor in charge of the hospital. He might be the only insane one in the hospital.
