I just finished reading another book – The Winner Stands Alone, by Paulo Coelho. I have always liked all his books and this one fell right on the good track as well.
This is a book making the reader realize that being famous or rich is not an end in itself and that our society, although said to be progressive, is leading people to riches, fame, success and yet taking everything away. It is stripping people of love, security, friendship in return for crisp notes of money, pretence of happiness and satisfaction, good business contacts and massive amounts of monetary profit. Afterall, money can’t buy a true love or a best friend. It can not buy peace of mind, happiness and content. Rather, it gets one stuck in a rut of always wanting more,doing better, climbing just one more hill while the things and people that make our hearts jump are walking away right in front of our eyes.
It makes one really give life a thought and introspect to find the true contentment and happiness, showing that money, success and fame can’t give anyone everything they need.
It’s a great book that everyone should read because it is time we realize this on our own with the help of a good author and a good story.
