VERONIKA DECIDES TO DIE At the end of this novel the reader is given the gift of a second chance at life, but only if the reader dares to defy conformity and live according to their heart’s passion, assuming of course that the heart has a recognizable passion. That’s the catch. If you are satisfied with your own mediocrity then I don’t recommend reading this because you might just find yourself identifying with Veronika, who never dared to take any real chances or go against the flow, one day after another being that of mundane existence. You may in fact find yourself quite jealous of Veronika’s remarkable foresight when she analyzed the reasons for not finishing her life, and then for having the calm courage to end her life of monotonous conformity.
This book challenges you to examine the value of your own life, and the cost of sacrificing whatever it is that is unusual about you for the sake of acceptance by others. If you aren’t afraid of holding up a mirror to yourself then read away, and enjoy the spiritual jewels the authors lays at your feet.
