It makes you think about what truly living can actually do. Reading the title would make you assume it’s only about why Veronika, well, decided to die. But it’s so much more than that. The book explores how people perceive life. Difficulties faced by them. And how they can be cured of their monotonous, boring life with a little madness. Everyone is capable of madness but the right amount can make all the difference. BUY NOW

3. The Winner Stands Alone(2008)

In ‘The Winner Stands Alone’, Paulo Coelho expresses his utter contempt for the natural working order of the world. The story is based on one day at the Cannes Film Festival. He explores the completely shallow lifestyles of the ‘superclass’; the class of rich, dwindling, botox-fed rich people who are carried away by fame and luxury and who own private jets and live extravagant lives. On the contrary, he also expresses his contempt for ‘the other’ class which includes people earning average wages or less. It includes people who follow a certain monotone and do things a certain way all their lives to get certain results. Amidst the chaotic events at the world’s largest film festival, Coelho lays bare the fallacies of the human soul and shows how downright materialistic our generation has become. BUY NOW
