    1. Pretty, single, 24-year-old Veronika decides to die for two reasons, both of them phony: one, because she realizes she will one day be old; and two, because a lot of things are wrong in this world. She then takes a lot of sleeping pills. While waiting to die, as if she's waiting for her cat to finish drinking its milk, Veronika decides to read a magazine and then write to the editor of that magazine. Which made the scene cartoonish.This rare combination of phoniness and cartoonishness gelled and [...]

    2. Fantastic read! Awesome! I could not put the book down!“Veronika Decides to Die” – just read the title again…cides to die…How many times have you said to yourself, at least I have, “Ahh…I don’t care, I don’t really want to live anymore”, without even thinking about the meaning of it.So Veronika said the same thing and decided to do something about it. Why?Nothing bad had happened to Veronika, she was beautiful, had a regular life…very ordinary though but normalShe decided [...]

    3. Veronika is a 24 year old Slovenian woman who one day decides to kill herself, apparently because (1) "everything in her life was the same and, once her youth was gone, it would be downhill all the way" and (2) everything is wrong with the world and she feels powerless to make things right. After she takes an overdose of sleeping pills, Veronika wakes up in a mental asylum and the remainder of the book is, basically, a series of interactions between Veronika and a number of the inhabitants of th [...]

    4. this shitty, whiny book in a nutshell, which is all it deserves: a simple, trite, self-indulgent allegory that poorly contemplates the similarities between genius and insanityi think this is the worst passage i've read so far:Vitriol was a toxic substance whose symptoms he had identified in his conversations with the men and women he had met. Now he was writing a thesis on the subject, which he would submit to the Slovenian Academy of Sciences for its scrutiny. It was the most important step in [...]

    6. At about 50 pages in, it's a little frightening how much I've identified with Veronika thus far, how much I understand her rationale for wanting to die. She can only see one path unfolding for herself, and it's one she can't stomach. I get that. But unlike Veronika I haven't given up hope that my path may yet fork off in unexpected and exciting directions.I also read and think there must be a certain kind of comfort in going truly insane. Not this garden-variety neurosis I experience, but really [...]

    8. اگر همین حالا به ما بگویند فقط یک هفته زنده ای چه میکنیم ؟ آیا زانوی غم بغل کرده و سرعت فرسایش درونی حتی از خود مرگ هم قوی تر و سریع تر روحمان را از جسم جدا میکند ؟ یا که سعی میکنم از لحظه لحظه ی آن ۷ روز نهایت استفاده را کنیم و جدا تمام حسرت هارا حالا شاید اندکی شان را تجربه کنیم و [...]

    9. هذه قصة التحول من الرغبة بالانتحار إلى الرغبة بتجرع الحياة حتى أقصاها. أعتقد بأننا - كلنا - نحتاج أن نستعيد هذه الرغبة!

    10. رواية غير اعتيادية أبدًا! نصحني بها أحد الأصدقاءأول صفحات الرواية تبدأ بمشهد فتاة جميلة، لاينقصها من الحياة شيء تنتحر!لتصحو فجأة وتجد نفسها في مستشفى للأمراض العقلية!!رواية تتحدث عن الجنون بمعناه الغير اعتيادي رواية من الممكن أن أقول بعدها أننا جميعًا أو أغلبنا مجانين بطري [...]

    11. The best way to describe this book is: it makes no sense whatsoever. Of course, you may say: "Well, Xandra, Paulo Coelho is a profound man, a philosopher. Not everyone gets him."Yeah, ok. I can't possibly argue with that. NowVeronika is a young Slovenian woman who decides to kill herself because her youth is almost gone and the world is a fucked up place. What? Yes, she is Slovenian. What do you mean why? I don't know why! I guess it's more exotic this way. Shut up!Ugh, I'm talking to myself aga [...]

    12. 2 bemused yes bemused stars.Veronika has a mild personality disorder and attempts a serious suicide attempt. She is placed in a private psych. hospital in the capital of Slovenia. She is beautiful and artistic and hypersexual and "special" (I suspect that this is the way Mr. Coelho views himself as well)Through pretentious and contrived conversations and situations filled with half-facts, pseudo-wisdom and a whole lot of malarkey she is cured. This is not a novel but rather a vehicle for Mr. Coe [...]

    13. For people who are concerned only superficially with the subject complex, the book is perhaps quite suitable.I found it very terrible and failed, especially in face of the fact that the approach could have a lot of potential, but this novel was anything but useful.

    14. الوعي بالموت يشجعنا على الحياة بكثافة اكثر---ان الذين يتجرأون في البحث عن المواضيع المحرمة تطلب ان يكونو على قدر كاف من الشجاعة وقدر كبير من عدم الاستيعاب----*أن الجنون هو العجز عن التعبير عن الافكارفالأمر أشبه بالتواجد في بلد غريب حيث يمكنك رؤيتة كل ما يحيط بك و فهمه لكنك تعجز [...]

    16. This was really the worst book I've ever read. I don't know if it's a problem in the translation or not, but as much as I WANTED to like this book I just couldn't make myself. I got about 60 pages away from the end before I realized that I didn't care about any of the characters and just wanted Veronika to die and get it over with.I think the worst part for me is that the author chose to write the second chapter about himself. Generally speaking, I think it's admirable that he wanted to protect [...]

    17. "The thought of suicide is a great consolation: by means of it one gets successfully through many a bad night.Nietzsche" “I need a sign, that things are gonna change. I need a reason to go on. I need some hope. And in the absence of hope, I need to stay in bed and feel like I might die today.Meredith Grey, Grey’s Anatomy" "An awareness of death encourages us to live more intensely.""But humans are all alike, she thought. We have replaced nearly all of our emotions with fear."This book allows [...]

    18. Kαλό ήταν αν και δε με συγκίνησε ιδιαίτερα. Θα το εκτιμούσα περισσότερο αν το διάβαζα αρκετά χρόνια πριν.

Setiap kejadian yang menimpa seseorang, bisa jadi menstimulasi pikiran orang tersebut untuk mempunyai asa. Dan semua orang berhak untuk itu. Bagaimana seseorang menyikapi asa tersebut, semua ada ditangannya. Mau diwujudkan atau tidak, terserah yang bersangkutan.Saat Sang Hidup mengajak saya bergulat melawan maut, saya dihadapi oleh dua pilihan. Pertama, menyerah pada keadaan, untuk kemud [...]

    20. ”اگر هرکسی فقط زندگی خودش را می کرد و می گذاشت دیگران هم زندگی کنند، خدا در هر لحظه ای حاضر می بود، در هر دانه ی خردل، در قطعات ابری که لحظه ای هستند و لحظه ای دیگر می روند.خدا همان جا بود و اما مردم اعتقاد داشتند باید همچنان بگردند، چون پذیرفتن اینکه زندگی فقط یک ایمان است، بسیا [...]

    21. Veronika, an attractive 24-year-old woman living in Ljubljana, Slovenia, has loving parents, an okay job, decent boyfriends, and so on. However she's tired of her routine life and tries to commit suicide. Veronika's attempt fails and she wakes up in Villete, a local mental hospital. There Veronika is told that her suicide attempt has severely damaged her heart and she has about a week to live.

    22. هي رواية تكشف لك عالم المجانين لتصل في النهاية إلى قناعة بانك مجنون وان المرض الذي تعاني منه هو مقاومة شي حتمي في كل إنسان وهو انك مختلف عن جميع البشر، بان لديك ما يسعدك وما يحزنك وما يشعرك بالحرية او ما يجلب لك التعاسة امور خاصة بك انت وحدك غير انك كفرد في هذا المجتمع تجاري من [...]

    23. After reading the Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, I decided that it was time to read another of his works. This book was about Veronika and how she had decided to die, and attempted suicide. She awakens from her attempt to realize that the attempt was not successful, but that she had cause damage to her heart with the medication that she had tried to overdose on and that she would die within days.Veronika uses her remaining time to reflect and through her own self-discovery she realizes that she shou [...]

    24. I totally, completely and utterly fail to understand this book. However, as typically befalls me when I read a book by Paolo Coelho, I seem to recall a moment about four-fifths of the way to the end when I had an epiphanic moment - when I realised that although I had loathed the book from the start until that exact sentence, I suddenly understood it and could comprehend and possibly even accept (though grudgingly) that other people could like it and that it could possibly qualify as a Good Book. [...]

    25. إن الجنون هو العجز عن التعبير عن أفكارك . فالأمر أشبه بالتواجد في بلد غريب , حيث يمكنك رؤية كل ما يحوطك, و فهمه,لكنك تعجزين عن التعبير عما تريدين معرفته أو عن تلقي مساعدة أحدهم , لأنك لاتفهمين اللغة التي ينطقون بها .فيرونيكا تقرر أن تموت . رواية تبحث في فلسفة الجنون من خلال قصة في [...]

    26. Giving this book 3 stars simply because I like Eduard. I've read three books by Paulo Coehlo so far-Veronika Decides to Die,The Devil and Miss Prym and The Alchemist.And even though I gave three stars to all three of them,I keep going back to Coehlo.I love his characters,I guess that's what I like the most about his books.And his endings are the best.

    27. I actually was glancing through a book shop and when suddenly this book caught my attention. I 've previously read The Alchemist and i thoroughly enjoyed it. But veronica was pretty awesome. In a sense, it was the truth of the western world and will be applicable to the eastern world which is actually involved all the time in copying the west. And from a very depressed state, with no great ambitions or desire in everyday life, veronica decides that life is not worthy of living and after a failed [...]

    28. كالعادة ، مش ريفيو على قد ما هي أفكار مشتتة راودتني ، هاحاول أجمعها هنا*الرواية كنت هاقراها من فترة كبيرة جدًا ، وماحصلش، وأديني أهو قريتها دلوقتي، ف أكتر وقت مناسب تقريبًا على الإطلاق.كنت لسه قبلها بفكر، ووصلت للإقناع بفكرة إن الواحد مننا فعلًا عنده حياة واحدة مش ألف، يعني أ [...]

    29. "Death frees from the fear of dying."Or so she's convinced right before she decides to end her existence.But fate has something entirely different set in store for her.Waking up in a mental asylum a couple of days later, Veronika's told that she will get what she desired for: her death. The attempt at her own life has damaged her heart irrevocably and now her days are numbered. Just like that, her worst nightmare comes alive: waiting for death.So what is it that made Veronika call quits? She's g [...]

    30. I had heard so many things about Paul Coelho that I had to find out for myself what he was like. The reviewers all seemed to hate him, but a couple of our au pairs said he was great.Well, I read Veronika Decides to Die, and in fact I quite enjoyed it! But I also thought it would be wise to quit while I was ahead.
