First Impression Friday – Adultery by Paulo Coelho

Here’s a little Friday something called First Impression Friday hosted by J W Martin.

First Impression Friday is a meme where you talk about a book that you have JUST STARTED! Maybe you’re only a chapter or two in, maybe a little further. Based on this sampling, give a few impressions and predict what you’ll think by the end.

The Blurb: Have you ever looked at your life and wondered, ‘Is this it?’

Linda knows she is lucky. Yet every morning when she opens her eyes to a so called new day, she feels like closing them again.

Her friends recommend medication. But Linda wants to feel more, not less.

And so she embarks on an adventure as unexpected as it is daring, and which reawakens a side of her that she – respectable wife, loving mother, ambitious journalist – thought had disappeared.

Even she can’t predict what will happen next.

First Impressions: This book has been in my TBR pile for so long now that I either need to read it or donate it back to the thrift shop it came from….it’s time!

I picked it up at a time when I really was looking at my life and thinking ‘Is this it?’….then I got sidetracked by actually changing my life….not with adultery, I feel the need to add….and it’s been sitting waiting patiently ever since.

Picking it up out of the pile this afternoon, it seems like a quick read if nothing else.

I’m hoping I’m not going to be too disappointed by the content. I’m not really a Coelho fan; having only read one other of his books – The Alchemist – many years ago. I understand he has kind of a cult following but I’m not really sure he’s for me. Hoping this book is at least a 3 star read….time will tell.
