Paulo Coelho’s The Winner Stands Alone by Annette Dunlea (Book Review)

This hardback The Winner Stands Alone is written by Paulo Coelho, the author who wrote The Alchemist. Its ISBN is 0007306067 and it is published by Harper Collins. The book is set during the Cannes Festival and all action takes place within 24 hours. Coelho explores the world of fashion and cinema and discovers it is shallow and immoral. The theme is Igor’s obsession with his ex-wife Ewa who is terrified of him. He decides to go on a killing spree to win his wife back. The story chronicles the serial murders and the characters he encounters on his journey. Igor justification is all is fair in love. He will do anything to win back his ex wife. Coelho is lamenting the lost values of our society that can not be reclaimed. It is well written and an easy to read thriller. Reviewed by Annette Dunlea author of The Honey Trap and Always and Forever
