I want to change. . . . I need to change.  Linda knows she’s lucky; she has a job, marriage, children, and wardrobe that anyone would envy. Yet every morning when she opens her eyes to a so-called new day, all she feels like is closing them again. Her friends recommend medication, therapy, self-help books, exercise, but Linda resists. She wants to feel more, not less.  When a chance work assignment puts her in the path of an old flame, Linda thinks that she's found the answer to her unhappiness, embarking on a daring affair that reawakens a side of her that she—respectable wife, loving mother, and ambitious journalist—thought had disappeared. But when that adventure threatens to consume the rest of her life, she will be forced to make a choice.  Provocative and profound, Adultery is about discovering passion in the life you live and learning what it means to be free.

I enjoy Paulo Coelho's books for their insightful and edifying qualities. For me, this book did not meet those criteria. It's about a woman, who, dissatisfied with the current state of her life, looks for a release... a thrill outside of her marriage. This for the purpose of self-validation, or rath...

I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.I'm so torn...I wanted to love the book, I really did! There’s no doubt that Coelho is a fantastic writer, after all he does write poetry. However, I think this novel was a bit of a struggle. Was this done on purpose because the main charac...
