"Everyone is indeed crazy, but the craziest are the ones who don’t know they’re crazy; they just keep repeating what others tell them to."
Paulo Coelho’s novel, Veronika Decides to Die, is a profound exploration of what it means to be “different” in a society that honors what is expected and fears the power of individual passions.
My Ridiculously Simplified Synopsis : Girl bored with life learns that there’s still more out there, believing she won’t live long. Boy fits in somewhere.
Veronika Decides to Die is actually based on Coelho’s own experiences in a mental hospital, and questions why some people are labeled sane or insane. What is normal? Why do some societies honor risk-takers while other cultures stifle free-thinkers?
Coelho could have ended his novel with a cliché answer to the simple question: How would you live your life if you thought you would die tomorrow? But thankfully he leaves in enough ambiguity for readers to realize there are no easy answers.
