Publisher's Summary

In the latest novel from number-one best-selling author Paulo Coelho, a woman attempts to overcome midlife ennui by rediscovering herself in a passionate relationship with a man who had been a friend in her youth.
A woman in her 30s begins to question the routine and predictability of her days. In everybody's eyes, she has a perfect life: happy marriage, children, and a career. Yet what she feels is an enormous apathy. All that changes when she encounters a successful politician who had, years earlier, been her high school boyfriend. As she rediscovers the passion missing from her life, she will face a life-altering choice.

horrible narration, boring story

I could not relate to the problems of the main character. The story was depressing, boring and without any depth. The narration was just horrible: wrong accents and a voice sounding very old, while the story was told by a young woman. Just totally generationally wrong way to speak. I like Coelho, but did not enjoy this production and this story.

Disappointing & Depressing!!!

Any additional comments?

This book was very disappointing. The main character was very entitled, spoiled and negative. I went through the entire book hoping there would be a point that things would around, however I grew to like it less and less as it progressed. It made me feel so down the entire time I read it. This was my least favorite audiobook that I have ever listened to.
