(EPUB) è Adulter ⚽ eBook or E-pub free

Ok so, if you are going to write a review about a book At least know how to spell I don t appreciate the fact that some people take it up to themselves to write a review about a book and give away what the story is about and how it ends I think instead, it would be better if you just say it wasn t what you expected and that s it Don t ruin it for others please The story of an existential crisis peppered with porn and religious preaching and ending with a trite conclusion Not what I expected from Coelho. I did not like Adultery I thought I would I read Paul Coelho I write about adultery How could this go awry Well, it started with the main character I didn t like her I didn t get her I didn t know her In all of my interviews with women about infidelity, in all my years being a woman, in all my years of having woman friends, I simply did not understand her It was part nationality, part class, part life circumstance, but mostly it was a woman having an affair as told through the perspect I did not like Adultery I thought I would I read Paul Coelho I write about adultery How could this go awry Well, it started with the main character I didn t like her I didn t get her I didn t know her In all of my interviews with women about infidelity, in all my years being a woman, in all my years of having woman friends, I simply did not understand her It was part nationality, part class, part life circumstance, but mostly it was a woman having an affair as told through the perspective of a man And I m not saying that Coelho cannot or should not write about women s experiences The Witch of Portobello was one of my favorite books But Linda was so much of a mess in his eyes She was a stereotypical, I found myself obsessing about this asshole and I cannot distinguish love from lust because I cannot distinguish anything in my life because I am a hapless woman in need of antidepressants and one partner who fulfills all my needs because I don t have friends or my own interests or the ability to imagine life outside of society s prescriptions Seriously I don t know any women like this The religious moralizing was so heavy handed and out of nowhere because the protagonist admits to not being religious And the random shaman s evolutionary biology perspective on infidelity removes all agency for women who have affairs and absolves men who are just doing what biology determines when they have affairs The part of the book that isn t about adultery, the part of the book that s about life malaise was also unconvincing but that might be because I m not rich and I ve never been in a position to be unhappy about having everything I ve ever wanted Maybe this is one of those the grass is always greener when there s a fence, but I was hoping for something nuanced, something that made me want to rethink my thoughts about life like many of Coelho s other books have done for me This book failed to offer me anything new or interesting I was disappointed I ve love to get my money back This book is very different from Paulo s previous work As a woman I feel like he got us Even though the title is Adultery I think this is a book about love A good friend of mine kept posting quotes from Adultery on Facebook, and he highly recommended this book to me I think this was a test of our bond because, after this read, I would have violently chucked the book at him As much as I love him, I ll now take his book recommendations with a grain of salt I do not belittle Paulo Coelho s achievements, but he just sinks this novel deeper and deeper into the mud and left it there.The story revolves around Linda, a 30 something wife of one of the A good friend of mine kept posting quotes from Adultery on Facebook, and he highly recommended this book to me I think this was a test of our bond because, after this read, I would have violently chucked the book at him As much as I love him, I ll now take his book recommendations with a grain of salt I do not belittle Paulo Coelho s achievements, but he just sinks this novel deeper and deeper into the mud and left it there.The story revolves around Linda, a 30 something wife of one of the richest men in Switzerland Her main problem, it seems, is that she doesn t have any problems She is the mother of two children, her husband adores her, she has a great career and is such an epitome of awesomeness, that shearouses desire in men and envy in women But she still hates pretty much every aspect of her existence and finds herself struggling with boredom due to a lack of passion and adventure To eliminate the predictability of her comfortable routine, she decides to replace her missing joy by having an affair with a former high school boyfriend, Jacob, now a prominent politician running for office Their paths cross when she has to interview him for an article Nostalgia hits, lust takes hold, and she sets out on a road that might have life altering consequences.You might think it s these consequences that frame the narrative, but the book never delivers the kind of repercussions that would seem realistic or create the necessary tension to keep the story interesting nor does it explain why I am supposed to give a hoot about its heroine, a woman who comes off as repulsively self absorbed and shallow Linda s introspection and soul searching readlike narcissistic ramblings as she tries to justify her actions through the topics of love, depression, joy, self fulfillment and life in Geneva, while making references to better works of literature The literary allusions and side stories are actually the only things I liked about this book Perhaps Linda s actions and choices would have madesense if I was given a chance to get acquainted with some of the people around her, but that doesn t really happen I find out the bare minimum about her husband, and next to nothing about her children The only supporting character who is fleshed out is Jacob, but he comes off even worse than she does A womanizer who has apparently had a string of affairs despite being married to an amazing woman He just seems like a person who doesn t have a meaningful connection with anyone.Why is Linda attracted to Jacob What exactly is she feeling And what is she actually going through She herself isn t sure, and keeps questioning her own thoughts, troubles, and motives for the entirety of the novel Meanwhile, there isn t enough character development or even a strong, convincing arc that would make her a compelling individual For most of the novel, as the events limply unfold, the heroine doesn t seem to come out any wiser When her eventual moment of epiphany does arrive, it feels tedious and overdone By the novel s end, I have already slipped into a depressed state similar to Linda s Adultery should be shunned just like the act it s named for, because the book is best exemplified by the darkness it leaves behind There s no fulfillment here, no inspiration just existential whining in the modern world If you have negative IQ, this is the book for you.Full review available on

commit suicide at the end, or at least take an overdose of the drugs she bought I would have rated it ZERO stars it that were possible Don t waste your time reading this crap, it s not worth it Glad I didn t waste my money as well, in you re curious just borrow it from someone.
