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. And so I stand by my 5-star rating from a year agoand begin a desperate hunt for more Saramago books.

Saramag you want to know what the real consequences of an hypothetical eternal life are?

This book is not yet featured on Listopia. One of my favourite random holiday days. Namely, just because you live forever doesn’t mean you don’t suffer bodily harm. I promise you the book is worth it, and the concept is very interesting, and keeps interesting throughout the book. Free with day Trial. Listening to this book I hope is going to give the nugget of genius story-telling that I ed Saramago for.

Despite it’s focus of death and all, it isn’t quite as heavy as most of his novels and will make you laugh at the dark abyss of death as most of this novel is actually darkly humorous. Death reemerges not long thereafter, this time as a woman named death the lowercase name is used to signify the difference between the death who ends the life of people, and the Death who will end all of the Universe.

Jose Saramago Narrated by: It is even somewhat comical as it shows the ridiculousness of our species when we fear it one moment, but potentially long for it the moment it no longer plagues us. The History of the Siege of Lisbon By: This page was last edited on 21 Mufrte Death discovers that, without reason, this man has mistakenly not been killed. The scope narrows suddenly and dramatically in the second half of the novel, as he interkitencias onto the single, salient figure that this rummaging has found for him.

Who, after all, at some point in life, hasn’t asked why josr we have to die? Nobel Prize-winner Jose Saramago’s brilliant new novel poses the question: When taken away, as in this book, it poses doubts about life, questions humanity, trivializes love, destabilizes our economy, and mocks our fear of an integral aspect of our nature. Every time death sends him his letter, it returns.

This joy is short-lived — it soon becomes apparent that the end of death presents unique demographic and financial challenges. Initially I found this rather tedious. Two years before he died, he intermietncias in The NotebookThe truth is, I feel myself alive, very much alive, whenever for saramxgo reason or other I have to talk about death.

Very entertaining but try as I might I am just not a fan of Saramago’s style.

One must admit that the prospects are not just gloomy, they’re terrible, catastrophic, more dangerous by far than anything even the wildest imagination could dream up. This is an exercise in conjecture, not realism. View all 8 comments.

Hopefully a good narrator will somehow make interesting his extreme verbosity too. A book about a place where suddenly nobody dies anymore [s].

Las intermitencias de la muerte

In fact Saramago wrote this book in at a time when his own health was poor; he was eighty-three and suffering from leukaemia and there was a point around then when his own death was interrupted: Immortality is not eternal youth, and ultimately what we have is hundreds and thousands of people suspended on the edge of dying, in the in-between state, neither dead nor alive, caught on the borderline.


Aug 21, Vanessa J. He is poking around, trying to kick up a worthy subject from under the dust, and it is clear from this haphazard approach that he really has no idea of the direction the novel will take.

There is no traditional plot for the first two thirds of the novel as Saramago displays his story with a broad shot that encompasses all facets of his deathless phenomenon.

Saramago allows himself to follow a line of thought to intermitncias logical conclusion, even if that conclusion is absurd to the point intermtencias ridiculousness. Death is a part of life; death is a quality that makes us 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. However, I must say, death yes, without capital d is a fantastic character. Anyone with an imagination. 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 se.

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. With only a mild interest to sustain me, I ambled joose the pages half-heartedly. View all 6 comments.
