Kinda depressed, or maybe not really, she is not sure herself. So she goes off and give this ex boyfriend of hers a b Waste of time. So she goes off and give this ex boyfriend of hers a blowjob on a whim, after interviewing him oh, he is respectable politician.
This was first moment I thought "WTF? But just like that, ah, just unzip it and there you go!
And then another weird sex fantasy of mister Coelho- she meets him again in some hotel, dreaming about great sex and all she gets is animal anal sex. Worse- she doesn't like it, feels bad after, and yet she has those romantic ideas in her head, that she is falling in love with him! So, while humiliated, treated like free ride, she goes crazy, texting him, stalking and plotting this absolutely ridiculous plan to get rid of his wife, so she could have him all for herself.
Yeah, but then, she loves her husband. Oh wait, she loves this other guy. Oh wait, she doesn't love this guy, she just want him, it's lust. Oh no, wait, she loves him And so on. And then she jump off the cliff on parachute with her hubby, gets this adrenaline rush, catharsis, all good again.
So- book is very uneven. Nice start, thought it will be a nice journey of bored and unhappy woman to find her inner happiness and purpose of life, with some cheating and sex involved. Very wrong. Coelho is mentioning vaguely something about God, but I'm not even sure why. Then he is mentioning stories for kids, but the way he did it is like our happiness should be delivered by this prince we are waiting for, who never shows up. Like our happiness is depended on someone else, like someone else should make us happy.
My thoughts? This woman needs a good slap in the head, a hobby, or voluntary work for poor, a purpose. And adrenaline rush- bungee jumping, mountain climbing, some activity well, she even felt better after a simple run around a lake: This book was a huge let down.
Pointless book about nothing really. Cos sure as hell it's not about love. View all comments. Aug 13, Zulma Mayor rated it it was amazing.

Adultery by Paulo Coelho – digested read
I write about adultery. How could this go awry? Well, it started with the main character.
In all of my interviews with women about infidelity, in all my years being a woman, in all my years of having woman friends, I simply did not understand her. It was part nationality, part class, part life circumstance, but mostly it was a woman having an affair as told through the perspect I did not like Adultery. It was part nationality, part class, part life circumstance, but mostly it was a woman having an affair as told through the perspective of a man.
The Witch of Portobello was one of my favorite books. But Linda was so much of a mess in his eyes. The religious moralizing was so heavy handed and out of nowhere because the protagonist admits to not being religious. This book failed to offer me anything new or interesting. I was disappointed. View all 24 comments. This book is very different from Paulos previous work. As a woman I feel like he got us!
Even though the title is Adultery I think this is a book about love!! The story of an existential crisis peppered with porn and religious preaching and ending with a trite conclusion. Not what I expected from Coelho. View all 16 comments. Aug 17, Bea rated it did not like it Shelves: If you have negative IQ, this is the book for you.

Jan 03, Michelle rated it it was ok Shelves: I think this was a test of our bond because, after this read, I would have violently chucked the book at him! The story revolves around Linda, a something wife of one of the richest men in Switzerland. Her main problem, it seems, is that But she still hates pretty much every aspect of her existence and finds herself struggling with boredom due to a lack of passion and adventure.
To eliminate the predictability of her comfortable routine, she decides to replace her missing joy by having an affair with a former high school boyfriend, Jacob, now a prominent politician running for office.
Their paths cross when she has to interview him for an article. Nostalgia hits, lust takes hold, and she sets out on a road that might have life-altering consequences. The literary allusions and side stories are actually the only things I liked about this book.
I find out the bare minimum about her husband, and next to nothing about her children. The only supporting character who is fleshed out is Jacob, but he comes off even worse than she does. A womanizer who has apparently had a string of affairs despite being married to an amazing woman. Why is Linda attracted to Jacob? What exactly is she feeling?
And what is she actually going through? When her eventual moment of epiphany does arrive, it feels tedious and overdone. View all 6 comments. I really wanted her to commit suicide at the end, or at least take an overdose of the drugs she bought!! View all 10 comments.

I can't believe this is written by the same man who wrote one of my favorite novels.
Utterly shocking and incredibly disappointing. I read the entire book, because I was waiting for it to get good, but it never happened. Don't waste time, or money on this sell out.

Linda lives in Switzerland with her husband and two children - none of whom are ever named. She has a good life, and an interesting job as a journalist and as a family they are financially secure with domestic staff to look after the children and do the housework. Who could want anything more from life? But Linda is restless and bored.
It would be all too easy to dismiss Linda as shallow but sh To say this is a book about a woman committing adultery is to miss the whole point of the story I feel. It would be all too easy to dismiss Linda as shallow but she is far more than that.
I'm sure many readers will put the book down in disgust saying she should count her blessings and no one could want more in life. Things are not as simple as that.
Linda feels she is plodding along from day to day with nothing exciting in her life - everything is just dull. She wonders if she is depressed but she doesn't think she is. She wonders whether she needs to see a psychiatrist but doesn't think that will work either. It must be difficult to empathise with Linda unless you yourself have felt that sort of restlessness.
I have felt it and it resulted in me turning my life upside down and doing some things which maybe were not a good idea though they seemed the only right thing to do at the time. What lesson you take from this strangely absorbing book - because there are lessons to be learned from it even if your life in no way resembles Linda's - are always going to be personal. But what I think is important is to not let yourself slip into a rut because if you get in too deep then the only way out is going to be to upend your life and those of the people you love.
This is a book which needs the reader to do some hard thinking about their own lives and to be aware that restlessness and boredom can lead to constructive change or it can lead to destruction. Everyone has their own agenda and if you're using them they may equally be using you.
Thoughtful and thought provoking - this book may well repay a second or third reading. I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley for review purposes. View all 8 comments. Jul 20, Andrea rated it really liked it Shelves: I'm glad to read a new genre by Paulo Coelho which falls more into literary fiction. As with most of the writers who get famous for a particular genre, readers who are familiar with his earlier works are quick to dismiss and criticize a book where they were expecting a different outcome.
In this story, Coelho shows the monster, that which resides in each of us, coming up with revenge. Through the life of the main character, feelings of dissatisfaction and inadequacy come to surface - if her life I'm glad to read a new genre by Paulo Coelho which falls more into literary fiction.
Through the life of the main character, feelings of dissatisfaction and inadequacy come to surface - if her life is so perfect, why is she so unhappy? Is it because, deep down, she felt there must be something else to all that sense of the perfect life she was living? Letting the monster come out is something forbidden, horrible, and dirty. But through the monster, she returns back from the forbidden adventure as a stronger woman, a better person, a renewed soul. I read this book in the original native language version Brazilian Portuguese and found it a refreshing take from some of Coelho's earlier books.
Delving deep into the psyche of a woman whose marriage was routine, he was able to conjure up an interesting tale of redeemed love.
Sep 02, Cindy rated it it was amazing. Although the book has a few graphic sexual situations in it, it's not, in my opinion, written with the intent to be erotica or written explicitly to excite sexual natures through reading. Although I'd be glad to give an honest review, I'm not an avid reader of erotica, so I may not be the best person to ask.
This book is a lesson in feminism! A lesson that great books can be written about an ungracious and unpleasant woman. Although I can't say I'm amazed by all the negative comments that this book has taken, I wholeheartedly loved it.
I believe many people were upset that the main character was devastatingly shallow and unlikable. Many people may react to this and take it out on the book. Don't make that mistake. She was shallow and unlikable in some ways, and this is what truly makes the book a gem. There are so few great books about REAL women with real flaws. The main character is not a simplistic, nice wife, as so many people expect married woman to be. Married women are expected to be wholesome, kind and wonderfully faithful.
Realistically, they're just people, and that's what had so many people claiming the book is shallow. It's not, it's not! I will guess that a person who has not withstood and lived through a life-altering event, will never understand this book and will probably not like it. Although I am a happy person, and have never suffered with significant depression, this book did touch the occasionally depressed person in me, and also a bit of my adventurous spirit.
Don't misunderstand me, this book is not at all in the adventure genre, but it does invoke lots of soul-searching. I also suspect that my own age has something to do with my liking this book. I definitely would not have liked this book in my 20's and possibly not in my 30's, because at that point, I hadn't experienced hardships in the same way I have now.
I am not a person who would describe herself as spiritual, but I enjoyed the spiritual components of the story. A person who hasn't experienced intense soul-searching at some point would most likely not enjoy this type of writing.
In fact, I will recommend that if you haven't had a life-altering experience, don't read this book until you do. The comments below may have vague spoilers in them. View all 22 comments. Aug 11, Bijay rated it did not like it.

What I especially enjoy is the modern fairy tale feel his novels have thanks to his beautiful language, even when they're set in a modern urban world. It starts off energetic, as Linda introduces herself and her world to the reader. I felt immediately drawn in. Coelho paints a vivid picture of her life, and I felt as if I knew her. He also shows me the perfect example of when the main character doesn't necessarily need to be likable to win my sympathy.
Although she may came off as sarcastic and negative—which is obviously a result of her crisis—I sympathized with her struggle. While on a conscious level, one might say "what are you complaining about, get a grip" I never for one second felt that way. Things she was "complaining" about may have seemed trivial had they not been explored properly. But her internal struggle was indeed written in such a way that I felt nothing but compassion.
As far as the other three important characters go, they felt round and real although the husband is always referred to as "my husband" and Linda's name is expressed twice the entire novel.
I was also wondering why we didn't see more of her children, as this would have given me a greater sense of what she sacrificed when she decide to have an affair.
But this was nothing that bothered me. Coelho paints a vivid picture of Geneva as well, just like he did with the sexual scenes. Nothing is sugar-coated, and many people would blush reading certain parts of this novel on the subway. He took no shortcuts and it felt real. Cons I always know when picking up a Paulo Coelho novel, that it's not going to be just a story.
It'll force me to think and many times my eyes are opened up to new views. However, there is a fine line between a self-help book and a novel which incorporates philosophical views. Unfortunately I don't feel that Coelho found a smooth way to share his views this time. At times there were long, preachy internal monologues by Linda and the dialogues between the characters did not sound natrual. The characters seemed more like puppets reading rehearsed lines set up to make it easier for the author to convey his point of view.
Some of these ideas also sounded farfetched and at times they were even redundant, when the same views were repeated several times in different metaphors.
The only thing I would complain about in terms of the main character was the generalizing about people in general. Because she was the narrator, I found myself blaming her when she expressed opinions about us humans as if we are all the same, assuming that we all reacted the same way to the same situations, and that we all shared her opinions and feelings about certain things.
I wanted to read about her and how she perceived the world—not for her to tell me how the world is. This, in combination with the issues mentioned above, gave it a slightly preachy feel. Perhaps Coelho's novels have always been like this and that this is what you're looking for when you seek his work. It's been a few years since I last read any of his other novels, so I honestly can't recall.
Conclusion The title doesn't do the novel justice. It's about so much more than adultery. The adultery is just a result of what this woman is going through, and the novel is about so much more than that.
Although my experience this time wasn't as great as reading Coelho's other novels, I would still recommend this book as a valuable read. And I do appreciate his beautiful language, that I am willing to forgive the preachiness. Mar 19, Emad Attili rated it it was ok Shelves: Well, I think that I liked and hated this book! It's not awesome. It's just good There are so many things that I didn't like, and there are things that I really liked. What I liked is the idea of redemption.
Everyone of us deserve a second chance. We're neither Angels nor demons. We're humans, and being a human means being a sinner. What I didn't like pretty much hated actually!!! Spending so many pages talking about other books and providing us with their plot summaries!
Adultery By Paulo Coelho
Such as Frankenstein. Writing an entire book more than pages to deliver a very simple message, which could've been delivered in one chapter or even less! I felt that the last chapter is the most important chapter. It's the chapter that conveys the whole idea. All of the previous chapters seemed a waste of ink and paper to me! That's why I felt that Paulo was probably aiming, not for adding a genuine work of literature to the world's library, but, unfortunately, for MONEY by publishing this book!

Every man and every woman, in every day of our lives, always has a good opportunity to surrender to love. Life is not a long vacation, but a constant learning process.
We can't live our life without love, care, feelings and someone around us pats out shoulders and tells us everything is ok, i am here, love u and care about u. But, we can't cheat our husbands and waifs, we can't throw years of marriage in the air just for desire, i still wonder how people, married people, can do this. I believe in our needing for care and feeling safe, for get out out loneliness and being something for someone, but as we use heart for love we must use brain for balancing and judging on our choices.
Love is a decision, love is a commitment, love is a choice. Can you train yourself to love the right man? Of course you can. The problem is forgetting about the wrong man, the one passing by who came in a door that was left open without asking permission. Start with a man who asked for permission not the man who took advantages of your loneliness and needing for warm arms and true feelings. When it is refers to love, walk toward it with open eyes and clear mind , when you find your one , your heart will have wings like butterflies, your eyes will spark like light, your brain will be clear like summer night and your fear will disappear like magic, if only you find the true love.
Until this day, the day you will find the love of you live, love yourself, your friends, your enemies, love the universe and love everything can draw your smile.
The above is what i learned from this novel: Jun 03, Cher rated it did not like it Shelves: Once upon a time, a ludicrous married woman with children feels she is bored by being so happy and her life being so perfect she actually says this.
So, to cure herself of this dreadful happiness she begins to randomly have slutty interactions the author's words, not mine with other men.

Then one New Year's Eve, this vapid, nonsensical character has a sudden epiphany and moment of transcendence in which she discovers the meaning of life and the answer to all of the other age old "big questions".
The conclusion was trite and written in a corny way, sounding like out of place new age fluff, in stark contrast to the salacious drama that is the rest of the novel. To say there was failure to relate would be a massive understatement. In case you have a completely different literary taste than myself, allow me to share a few snippets of this author's work that are examples of why it was drudgery for me to read it: My heart!
Before I saw a gigantic universe around me; and now the universe seems like a little dot within my heart that has infinitely expanded, like space.
A blessing. My husband suggests we travel to Nyon population 19, , a small town 25km to the northeast of Geneva population , , to rekindle our marriage. We have a nice walk, followed by vigorous sex, yet still I feel depressed. I cannot get the image of Jacob's wife out of mind.
I drive to a down-at-heel area by the lake and accost a young man. He thoughtfully suggests that may not be such a good idea but sells me the required quantity anyway.
Am I going mad? I ask myself. I consult three different psychiatrists and reject them all because I am certain they don't have the spiritual depth to help me. I then go to a Cuban shaman, whom I can feel delving into my soul. Tears come to my eyes. I drive to see Jacob. We undress noiselessly, before he turns me over and enters my anus.
It's not quite what I had in mind, but I go along with it anyway. Sometimes the true path is not always to see: Jacob and I continue to meet four times a week and have both conventional and unconventional sex. I then go home to masturbate. My husband is finding this all a bit tricky but says he believes in me. We go to a dinner where I am to be awarded the Pulitzer prize. Jacob and his wife are there. I tell her I am definitely not having an affair with her husband.
She gives me a deeply unspiritual look. I think she needs guidance. Jacob refuses to see me again, but I insist on one last meeting. Silently, we get undressed and I force his head between my legs and make him stay there for three days. He has shown me.Start on. The Valkyries: Enabled X-Ray: Stephanie Evanovich.
So you can't see any good reason for her to want to continue the affair. Frances Itani. View all 9 comments. The review must be at least 50 characters long. Graeme Simsion.
