Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

When Paulo Coelho (The Alchemist) was a young man, his parents had him committed to mental hospitals three times because he wanted to be an artist--an unacceptable profession in Brazil at the time. During his numerous forced incarcerations he vowed to write some day about his experiences and the injustices of involuntary commitment. In this fable-like novel, Coelho makes good on his promise, with the creation of a fictional character named Veronika who decides to kill herself when faced with all that is wrong with the world and how powerless she feels to change anything. Although she survives her initial suicide attempt, she is committed to a mental hospital where she begins to wrestle with the meaning of mental illness and whether forced drugging should be inflicted on patients who don't fit into the narrow definition of "normal." The strength and tragedy of Veronika's fictional story was instrumental in passing new government regulations in Brazil that have made it more difficult to have a person involuntarily committed. Like any great storyteller, Coelho has used the realm of fiction to magically infiltrate and alter the realm of reality. --Gail Hudson -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Format: Taschenbuch
This book by Paolo Coehlo is about a young women called Veronica. She lives in Ljubljana and thinks a lot about the sense of life. Although she has a boyfriend, a well-payed job, she means that she is an unimportant person living in an unimportant country. One day she decides to take a overdose of sleeping pills but she survives the suicide and is taken to a mental hospital. One day, in the hospital, the doctor tells her, that she has only four days left to live. Through this horrible message Veronica starts to think about the life again and comes to the decision, she doesn't want to die. For the first time of her life she wants to fight for surviving and falls in love...
I think a lot of people can find themselves in this story again. It is about life and how people feel. It says that superficial relationships and a well-payed job can't make people feel happier. We need more to stay healthy!

Having been recommended this book by a good friend of mine, who knew me as a lost young person in this world, I read the book not only to feel excited but also had a renewed outlook on life. There were many points in the book that still stick in my mind ever so clearly as if I had read it yesterday. But Paulo Coelho wrote that book in a way that made me say, 'yeah, how did he hit the nail so precisely?' Reading some passages gave me shivers because Paulo was so right.
Many times, we tend to hold back on questioning or spilling our brains out for the sake of pleasing others because they would thing that we are crazy for asking such question. However, I have learnt a valuable lesson through this book - that is to be mad (mad in a good way)once in awhile. To do things once in awhile that we might not otherwise do and may never repeat but something that makes people say, 'He/She is MAD!'. Through this book also, I have come to realize that being myself and portraying the real me in a world filled with people who are extremely afraid to show their real feelings and expressions, is OK. I can be myself and be different and not feel as though it is a grave sin to be ME. - "Is Wanting to be different a serious illness?.....It is if you force yourself to be same as everyone else: it causes neuroses, pschoses and paranoia. It's a distortion of nature, it goes against God's laws, for in all the world's woods and forests, He did not create a single leaf the same as another." p. 153
Paulo Coelho wrote it so well that I have come to conclude: You only live once. Therefore, enjoy life to the fullest!

Format: Taschenbuch
If you think you are mad, if your friends or colleagues say you are mad or if you want to die then hold on and read this book first. This book tells two stories in only one context.

One part of the story concerns about the definition who is mad and who not. Paulo Coelho let you look in your own mirror and you have to decide in which world you would like to live. Either in the normal world which is full of life and well organized or in the world of a mad person in a lunatic asylum. You will ask yourself which is probably the right world? Is the mad person in the lunatic asylum really mad or are we mad? The other part of the story tells us something about your own abilities to manage depressive situations in your life and what love will move.

The story begins with the decision from Veronika: She wants to leave this world because she does not know what she should do in this - in our - world. But Veronika's suicide fails and she wakes up in a hospital - in Vilette. Her doctor, Dr. Igor, told her that she is save for the moment but she will die within the next five days for hart attack reasons. In the next five days Veronika finds new friends and her love Eduard. Eduard is a son of an ambassador and schizophrenic. He spoke nothing since he was in Vilette. Veronika falls in love and Eduard changes his own decision to be schizophrenic . . .

This book will change your mind and will put a smile on your face.

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Laure-Madeleine am 3. Juli 2000
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Beginning with his novel's intriguing title, "Veronika Decides to Die," Brazilian author Paulo Coelho, promises something he does not deliver. As Veronika fails as a suicide, so does this parable of madness fail as a narrative. Rhetorical devices abound in this contrived comedy of errors: irony, interior monologue, metaphor.
For followers of the writings of Che and Camus, who may view the choice of suicide as revolutionary, political, and existential act, Veronika not only fails but also reawakens as an artist for whom the personal is apolitical. For fans of Sylvia Plath's "The Bell Jar," Veronika's angst may not ring true. For fun-seeking free spirits who love Ken Kesey's "One Flew Over the Cuckoo Nest," the sane/insane reversals of society/mental asylum may dull in comparison. Nonetheless, this book does have appeal as a fairy tale.
Rather than Veronika, the most interesting character is Dr. Igor, a psychiatrist who views the mental institution as "Skinner box." Through him, in but one of his numerous ironies, Coelho presents his exposition of "doctor playing God," or "God as puppeteer." However, Coelho's hagiography, replete with tortured rendition of Mary as second Eve, reveals his lack of iconographic insight.
