Igor is insanely jealous and when Ewa left him he told her that he would destroy 'whole worlds' in order to get her back, and he intends to keep his promise… Igor has followed Ewa and her new husband to Cannes and his plan is to cause as much violence and destruction as possible until Ewa realises how much he loves her and comes back to him.

Igor is clearly unhinged and he will stop at nothing to regain her love and so he goes on a ruthless killing spree until he tracks down Ewa… The star-studded film festival acts as a backdrop to Igor's maniacal murdering spree and we are ntroduced to various characters along the way, all of whom are desperately trying to get their big break in the shallow world of show business; Gabriela a young and naive actress who is being exploited by her agent and Jasmine a troubled young Rwandan refugee working as a model.

Editorial Reviews From Publishers Weekly Coelho's latest blends spiritual allegory with elements of a thriller and does not lend itself to an easy audio production. Paul Boehmer singlehandedly tackles a cast of characters with a wide spectrum of languages and ethnic identities. The action surrounds 24 fateful hours at the Cannes Film Festival, as Igor kills off members of an elite superclass in a sociopathic rage against his ex-wife, Ewa. Boehmer provides a carefully constructed accent and speech pattern to his portrayal of Igor, and delivers an equally impressive turn as Ewa's current spouse, a Middle Eastern fashion mogul.

Yet other principal figures in the story—particularly the female characters—do not receive the same attention to vocal detail; consequently, the dialogue exchanges sound uneven.

I love Paulo Coelho books and I have read most of them. I think this is my least favorite. I have found it hard to get absorbed into the story. The only reason I finished the book is because the author is Pauli Coelho.

Any other author and I would have not finished it. One person found this helpful. Hardcover Verified Purchase. Coelho's The Winner Stands Alone is the most graphic and revealing portrait of our particular era's pathology -- everyone in one way or the other is infected with the 'rich and famous' syndrome.

Igor exemplifies the dishonesty and false ideals by killing for 'love'. He feels justified in looking down on all the tiers of celebrity mania -- from those who come to worship from a distance to those who aspire for a place in the ranks at the cost of any personal sacrifice, to those who are drawn into celebrity industries models, actors, designers, agents, producers, et al. In a Sopranos episode in which Christopher goes to a Hollywood event and mugs Lauren Bacall for her bag of free designer goodies, the insanity of this culture is made crystal clear.

The Garden of Earthly Delights has been reduced to the lowest common denominator -- make money or be famous or die. Even Igor's love is just an expression of his egomania. I personally could not put this book down. I like Paulo Coelho. I read a couple of his books and definitely felt his point about life. The Alchemist is definitely a favorite.

This book was good and pretty much talks about the price of getting what you really want or think you want.

The Winner Stands Alone: A Novel

He does a good job in the characters and seeing what their true goals are. How some got to the pinnacle of what they wanted and found the prize or price wasn't worth it.

There are definitely lessons in this book. I don't think it was the best book of his I have read but I did gain some good insights from it. Audio CD Verified Purchase. Coelho is a master writer, no question there, but for me his best works are still "The Alchemist" and "Devil and Ms Prym". The narrative in those two novels is by far the best developed.

I wept by the river Piedra while I read the book with the same title, I didn't "get" the witch book named after a mushroom, I liked "Zahir" but felt it was overdone. Girl in the Woods. Aspen Matis.
