The Winner Stands Alone

I am one of  Paulo Coelho’s fans and I am deeply interested in reading his masterpieces   “The Winner Stands Alone” has a different path from the other novels which i read because it is about paying for one’s dreams in order to achieve it . Coelho created a great character of  “Igor” the criminal who kills in the name of greater love. The author gave his character a crucial  reason to send a message to his Ex-wife by killing all women  he met.

“Life sometimes separates people so that they can realize how much they mean to each other.” 
― Paulo CoelhoThe Winner Stands Alone

“The Winner Stands Alone” is roughly based on the growing rise of what the author calls “The superClass” who lives a luxurious life and wears Fashionable couture designed by famous designers.

“The Superclass tries to promote its values. Ordinary people complain
of divine injustice, they envy power, and it pains them to see
others having fun. They don’t understand that no one is having fun,
that everyone is worried and insecure, and that what the jewels, cars,
and fat wallets conceal is a huge inferiority complex.” 
― Paulo CoelhoThe Winner Stands Alone

Paulo Coelho was right when he portrayed the Film Directors and Producers in his novel because,in fact ,   this is  the way they think, behave and exploit actresses and crew members. Last but not least, this novel changed my life since it asserted all my doubts that i had conceived about some directors and producers.

She Knows three things:
(a) that men are less treacherous than women;
(b) that they never notice what a woman is wearing because 
they’re always mentally undressing her,
(c) that as long as you’ve got breasts,thighs,buttocks and belly in 
good trim, you can conquer the world.”
