Summary

The thought-provoking new novel from the international best-selling author whose words change lives.

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.

Poor story about a woman written by a man

This book tries to tell the tale of a woman in some version of a midlife crisis. Turns out she needed to have sex with some guys and then it was over. That is the story. Oh, the husband forgave her.

Helped a lot. You see things more clearer now.

Love it. Fears and love well explained. Feeling alike to the main person in the story. Similar thoughts. Good answers to difficult questions too.

Boring

This story was boring and not in touch with the real world. Dissapointing as some other Coelho's latest works. The narrator's voice sounded much too old and I had to keep reminding myself that the main character is only in her thirties.

Worst book from Paulo Coehlo

What disappointed you about Adultery?

There is simply no value in this book. Some attempt at a 50 Shades of Grey. Disappointed with Paulo Coehlo as he has put out fantastic work in the past such as the Alchemist.

What could Paulo Coehlo have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Nothing really

What didn’t you like about Susan Denaker’s performance?

Far too slow
