The Winner Stands Alone


The newest book written by my favorite author, Paulo Coelho. This time the story takes place within 24 hours at Cannes Film Festival. The central character here is Igor, a very successful Russian entrepreneur who was left by her wife, Ewa. Igor thinks that he can get his wife back by destroying the whole world. So, here it is, the cruel adventure of Igor begins, he starts killing innocent people.

Beside the action story, I love the vivid description about the people behind the Cannes scene, the producers, actors, designers and supermodels. What they think, what actually happen to them before they can achieve their present position, well...it's definitely not a simple thing to do, it's related to many aspect, people, hard work, luck, and the like.

Not like Coelho's other books, this book combines action, murder, police and at the same time also telling about fame, fortune and celebrity. What a perfect theme!
