    Adultery, written by one of the most revered authors of the world, Paulo Coelho, is a story of a woman who is faced with an inevitable, life-altering choice when she chooses to break the monotony of her life.

    Summary of the Book

    Linda is in her thirties and is facing a crisis mentally and emotionally. She begins to question the void that was growing in her, the mundane, predictable days of her life. Although her life seemed perfect in everybody’s eyes – a contented marriage, adorable children and a successful career - she feels a keen sense of emptiness and displeasure. But it all drastically changes when she meets a prosperous politician who happens to be her high-school boyfriend from years ago. As Linda revives the passion that was absent in her life, she would have to make a life-altering choice.

    About Paulo Coelho

Coelho’s major success, The Alchemist, remains to be the highest selling book ever written by a Brazilian. Paulo was chosen to the Brazilian Academy of Letters in the year 2002.

Some his other notable works are Eleven Minutes, Veronika Decides to Die, Like the Flowing River, Manuscript Found in Accra, and Brida.

    Enjoyed reading it

    Story line of any of the books of the writer is simple- a journey. This is a story of journey of a person who decides NOT to fake happiness and instead live life as per choice. The chosen path is full of social stigma, taboos, acceptances and rejections of choices and yes, it is considered as dangerous in conventional social norms and relationships. The novel is able to beautifully capture pleasure and pain of such path, which is more in the inner world of the person than at physical level. I...

    Flipkart service fine, little disasppointed with the book

    It is a pretty light read. Kind of formula based novel and lots of cliché. Had pre-ordered it with lots of expectation, flipkart delivered on time. Book lacks substance and for a Paulo Coelho fan, it is becoming a little repetitive.

    Paulo Coelho can never be waste of money!

    Before the book was released, I already knew that was going to be an exemplary work. The amount of research Mr. Coelho does before writing a book is remarkable. It’s obviously a little adult but it’s not just another book, it’s extremely inspiring and give answers to those questions which I thought never even existed.

    It’s basically about a thirty-something woman who is bored with her too perfect life and thus ends up in an extra-marital affair with her ex-boyfriend from high school. ...

    Insipid & jejune work by Paulo

    It has been one of the most insipid , puerile & jejune work from the man who penned Alchemist . You can't expect such a vapid & immature work from a man who is widely acclaimed world over as a writer of repute. Anyone who wishes to go down the memory lane of one's college days when one catered to one's basic instinct by reading those taboo books that led you to the road of moral depravity & turpitude , well can go ahead to buy this book. But those looking for intelluctual gratification can ...

    Adultery: A Cure for Depression?

    The great secrets I learnt from this book are:
    Adultery is a cure for Depression.Paragliding is a cure for Adultery.
    Otherwise the book is a mere prattling of a super rich and sexually starved woman who behaves promiscuously and justifies it philosophically. Many women would actually enjoy having Linda's "problems"! And they would not resort to such depraved behaviour on a dubious journey of "self-discovery" which has become Coelho's euphemism for depravity and irresponsible behaviour.

    Goodbye Paulo..Its over!

    In Adultery, we meet Linda, who is a journalist in her thirties, with a husband and two children, living in Switzerland and rich to boot. Her clothes are designer and she has a picture perfect life. Until, that is, the day she decides she is depressed with the perfection all around her and embarks on the road to adultery to alleviate her boredom. For this purpose, she chooses the convenient ex-boyfriend, Jacob, who is now a prominent politician and has just strolled back into her life.
