Review: Adultery - Paulo Coelho

A novel made of more than 300 hundreds pages. According to, Linda knows she's lucky. Yet every morning when she opens her eyes to a so-called new day, she feels like closing them again. Her friends recommend medication. But Linda wants to feel more, not less. And so she embarks on an adventure as unexpected as it is daring, and which reawakens a side of her that she - respectable wife, loving mother, ambitious journalist - thought had disappeared. Even she can't predict what will happen next...

Interesting novel and got me off-guarded. It came in a special time in my life where I was looking for answers. It helped me in some cases. I enjoyed the various scenes but didn't understand the first sexual encounter and how easy it happened. 

I blame Paolo for downgrading women at the beginning of the novel, being a sex slave or in his character case, wanting to be. Resolution was surprising and rather an unconventional way of catharsis for the adultery action. 

I enjoyed the idea of healing the problem with the problem it self. I am going to read more for Paolo. This is my second book for him.
