"Veronika Decides to Die" is my all-time favorite book by Brazilian author Paolo Coelho and one of my all-time favorite books, period. It is such an uplifting and inspiring story of daring to live life to the fullest, no matter what anyone else...continued

A really great sort of dark comedy with a bit of romance. Keeps you wondering from start to finish!

Quotes & Highlights

Veronika Decides to Die was made into a film in 2009 starring Sarah Michelle Gellar.


In this life-affirming original stage production of Paulo Coelho’s stunning book, the concept of acceptable behavior is challenged and the notion of truth is re-imagined with intelligence, warmth,humor, and passion. After an attempted suicide leaves her health debilitated, Veronika finds herself living out her final days in a mental institution where the patients may be saner than the world outside. Her exploration of the true meaning of sanity and her fight for liberation reveal the power of love,redemption, self-acceptance and letting go.
