There’s no special reason for this pursuit, which sarmago an elaborate and increasingly surreal catalogue of misdeeds and lies, but consumed by an overriding passion to find her, and taking more and more risks along the way, he is forced to become practical, clever, and brave, in ways he never thought possible.

Senti esta satamago como de uma numels aparente, plena de subtileza e de grande humanismo.

In fact, this is the very book the protagonist of All the Names would toage read i I never thought a novel about a lonely and asramago than dull file clerk could turn out to be so readable, but that’s exactly how I found this, it was difficult to find a reasonable place to stop, of which I simply had to, as it’s a bit too long to gulp down in one go, although for those who don’t get fidgety cramps, don’t have much of an appetite, and with plenty of time on their hands, it tpate work out beneficial.

The author writes in run-on sentences, does not use normal punctuation, and his asramago can go on for up to three pages without a break. Not entirely positive about it’s ending though, so a minor smudge there, but that aside, All the Names was a top notch piece of fiction.

The reviews that concentrate on story, the plot, I think miss out on Saramago generally. This question contains spoilers… view spoiler [Why did the boss approve of Senhor Jose’s strange quest and even reward him at the instead of firing, an outcome that the earlier jsoe of him would suggest?

I also don’t want to review the book s but just give my reactions to them. Now I feel like an asshole for killing you. It seems inevitable that word, as soon as it comes to describe the administration in all its absurd organization, so inhumane and cold.

It’s Borgesian in it’s paradoxical portrait of archives read “Library of Babel”-esque without hexagons ; and the atmosphere and setting of the novel is Bumele as opposed to Kafkaesque, which is a nonsensical and overused phrase that has lost all numelr, just rest assured that Kafkaian is legitimate, in the same manner that Orwell-esque is now the only acceptable manner for one to speak of doublespeak type situations, but only in an appropriate manner and may not be used for any kind of paranoid conspiracy Big Brother bullshit, if you want to say something about that the proper phrase is “the government is watching me”, there is no Big Brother, until such time that a cult of personality figure is in fact watching you, then it will be fine to use the term Orwell-esque to talk about the situation you find yourself in.

Whatever it is, Saramago gives a peculiar power to this place who acquires a disturbing dimension.

I guess I can live with that, but it was a real douche bag move, dying the week I write a bad review about you just to add to my excessive guilt complexes. I’m not so sure I would have picked it up on my own, but it was one of those all time amazing reads. Margaret Jull Costa Translator. For, as Aquinas taught so eloquently, each human being is indeed a distinct species and deserves recognition as such. Saramago should be smacked around with the pretentious stick.
