    Description

    A profound meditation on personal power and innocent dreams that are manipulated or undone by success, The Winner Stands Alone  is set in the exciting worlds of fashion and cinema. Taking place over the course of twenty-four hours during the Cannes Film Festival, it is the story of Igor, a successful, driven Russian entrepreneur who will go to the darkest lengths to reclaim a lost love—his ex-wife, Ewa. Believing that his life with Ewa was divinely ordained, Igor once told her that he would destroy whole worlds to get her back. The conflict between an individual evil force and society emerges, and as the novel unfolds, morality is derailed.

    Meet the players and poseurs behind the scenes at Cannes—the "Superclass" of producers, actors, designers, and supermodels, as well as the aspiring starlets, has-been stars, and jaded hangers-on. Adroitly interweaving the characters' stories, Paulo Coelho uses his twelfth novel to paint an engrossing picture of a world overrun by glamour and excess, and shows us the possibly dire consequences of our obsession with fame.

    Criminally glamorous

    Uncharacteristic of Paulo Coelho, this novel is a roller coaster ride from its very first line. A tale of love, betrayal and redemption, woven on the foreground of the famous Cannes Film Festival is sure to keep you glued till the very end. Paulo Coelho has ventured into the very talked about world of glitz-power-money and has created a masterclass yet again. Don't just waste time reading the reviews, go grab a copy and when you leaf through the pages you won't repent your money being wasted.

    Good thriller

    For ones who have read previous novels of Paulo, would definitely get dissatisfied for sure.
    But this is an another viewpoint of Paulo, this book definitely certifies his research into fashion world and also it is a good read; no lags any where. You can smell Sidney Sheldon(a kind of; not exactly) side of Paulo in this novel.

    Worst Novel Ever

    I have read The Alchemist by Paulo, and since then became admirer or him, loved the alchemist, want to read it again n again, but this novel, I thought it must be great too, considering its title and author Paulo, but it was such a waste of time that i never want to read such novel ever again, I have read other novels, mostly by Sydney Sheldon, his work was awesome, even one of his novel had similar Star World, dark side and all that, but it was readable, but this novel.... though i fully rea...

    A Tangled Saga Of Revenge In The backdrop Of Cannes.

    A celebrity madman sets out to kill his celebrity ex-wife and her lover. Even if it means murdering one dozen people to get there. Love, lust, revenge, anger and murder is what this book is about. The books also gives you a glimpse of the way the celebrity world works. The plot is extremely tangled and does not offer any kind of theme- it's difficult to figure out what exactly Coelho's trying to convey.

    'Winner Stands Alone' is certainly not the best of Paulo Coelho's works. It left me disa...

    Moderate

    No doubt about the author, he's the best in the world but the quality of the pages is rough as it doesn't match with the worth.
