Well, you always have to be careful what you wish for. Ended up having a very moving experience surrounded by his things, and had a fantastic conversation with the bookseller on the top floor of the building – which is where i bought my copy of this book. Plus, Saramago daramago an amazing writer, with a well-deserved Nobel Prize and all. Eternal life, the eternal dream.

Death discovers that, without reason, this man has mistakenly not been killed. This is an exercise in conjecture, not realism. Dream come true, right? Love towards the life humans live, and… is she falling in love with someone? As a note of caution, Saramago has a unique style that tends to turn people away and this slightly bothers me.

Jason I’ve heard good things about Saramago. It’s death, who is surprised at the audacity of a mediocre unremarkable middle-aged musician who refuses to die.

Saramago’s death character was fascinating and different than any traditional image of death speaking of tradition death, there is a funny bit where the government takes all the traditional images of death and uses technology to see what these skull images would look like with a human face and he actually manages to make death a likeable, empathizable character.

It’s not an easy style to read, especially in this book, with meandering narration only underscoring the absence of easily definable plot, the absence of characters who we can follow and love and root for. Death saramaggo a part of life; death is a quality that makes ds human, death is even an economic pillar. Read it if you enjoy something that will leave you with much more than with what you started before opening one of his books.

It is NOT difficult to read, give it a few pages and I promise you will grasp it. I am on page 70, does this book get any better, or does it keep going on in this vein?
