Inspired by events in Coelho's own life, Veronika Decides to Die questions the meaning of madness and celebrates individuals who do not fit into patterns society considers normal. Bold and illuminating, it is a dazzling portrait of a young woman at the crossroads of despair and liberation, and a poetic, exuberant appreciation of each day as a renewed opportunity.

Beautifully written book that offers hope and inspiration for people who feel as if they have no purpose, or question their existance...If you have any sort of depression or confusion about your direction in life, this book helps.
However, if you are a well rounded, content person who enjoys life, then you won't need to be reminded about why life is awesome. The trick is to figure out if you are truly happy, or just THINK you are happy.
I was not at all pleased with the ending of the book. I would have liked to have heard more about Eduard and Veronika and how things worked out between them. And what Veronika's reaction was to finally knowing she was fully recovered.
