The Winner Stands Alone - book review

Review of Paulo Coelho – THE WINNER STANDS ALONE

I have recently finished reading this book and if anyone is thinking of buying it this review maybe useful.
Set in Cannes during the famous yearly film festive, Igor comes to win back his ex-wife. The story leads us through the superficial world of fashion and film, it players and its demons. The need for an economy to accept the whims of a superclass and the dreams of hopefuls crashing along with the waves.
The Russian multi-millionaire who destroys lives to send a message and the model who walks the red carpet only to find its not what she wants.
This book is interesting and compelling reading. It is highly critical of the glamour and diamonds that seem to matter so much to people while the sunset on a warm beautiful evening is ignored. It is the first book I have read of Paulo Coello but it will not be the last.
