About the book:

I am a huge fan of Paulo Coelho. Yes, I even have a reference from the novel tattooed on my shoulder blade. Anyway, while Alchemist is my favorite, I would like to recommend one of his underrated works – Veronika Decides to Die. This is a story about a girl name Veronika, who randomly decides to end her life one day. The book deals with depression and the psychological thoughts that even happy human can undergo once in a while. This is one of the beautiful books that deal with the topic of anxiety, confusion, and suicidal thoughts with such poignancy.


One of my friends had a box set of Paulo Coelho works. I read this book in some four hours while I was just visiting him. He still complains that he himself hasn’t read all the books in the box set yet.


  1. It’s one of the best books I’ve read, given Alchemist by Paulo is always the suggested book. I loved the way the story progresses.
