Si vive di disincanto, di amori non ricambiati, figli del bisogno e costruiti sull'acqua, si vive di ricordi che continuano a tornare a galla rifiutando di perdersi nelle nebbie della memoria. Antunes fa quello che vuole con le parole, anche troppo, talvolta. Aug 04, Nan rated it it was amazing. Incredible non-linear story that wallops you with rich, sensuous writing on every page. A gorgeous book that weaves 7 or 8 narratives you're never quite sure loosely together, the story takes you through a couple of decades and a couple of families who are linked sometimes closely, sometimes not so much.

For me, the main question was in a world gone insane Salazar's dictatorship, South African diamond mines, and the Portuguese occupation of Mozambique are all referenced, mostly obliquely , "insanity" is a legitimate and possibly poorly titled response.
The different voices are unique and moving, always surprising.

Es imposible no deslumbrarse ante el talento de alguien que sabe ponerle palabras a aquello inefable que sentimos: queremos repetir ese asombro y por eso buscamos todo lo que aquella persona haya escrito antes. Acaso hay tres realmente interesantes.

He is currently my favorite, he is the master, the one to aspire to, poetic yet linear, I could get lost in his prose forever and not miss a thing. He should be much more well known than he is, it's almost criminal this neglect. Aug 04, Aida added it. I liked the sweet melancholy of its flus and fevers.

Antunes, who reads something like the Faulkner of The Sound and the Fury is one of these authors. Picture to yourself two dysfunctional families from a working class suburb of Lisbon. Each character has his or her own chapter, including one from the trees that used to grow outside one of the family homes.

There is a kind of desire for justice by giving a poetic voice to everything. The result has a curious flow that is fun to read. All takes place in a Portugal that has seen better days and is beginning to sink into decay, with remnants still surviving of the former Salazar dictatorship. May 07, Cordula rated it it was ok.
I feel like I need to explain this comparatively low rating or feel like a philistine. I can see the value of this novel and why it is widely considered a modern classic. But I felt overwhelmed by the rambling prose, the difficulty in establishing the identities of the different narrators, and, ultimately, piecing together a coherent narrative.
The writing is incredibly atmospheric - capturing loneliness, longing, stagnation, melancholy, the confusion of memories. But the writing style with its I feel like I need to explain this comparatively low rating or feel like a philistine.
But the writing style with its surrealism just isn't for me. I don't mind a challenging read, but reading this book felt like a chore that I somehow failed. Jan 17, Susan Katz rated it did not like it Shelves: contemporary-literature. I cannot remember a thing about this book. It doesn't sound even vaguely familiar. Perhaps I should just start reading the same books over and over so I can remember them! I have now started to read it again August Well, now I have given it pages to engage me, but I just find it confusing and dense and difficult. I quit! There are too many books I want to read to spend more time on one I'm not enjoying.
Ich weiss ehrlich nicht mehr, ob ichs damals ganz fertig gelesen habe. Schwieriges Buch aber brilliante! Unvergleichlicher Stil, sowas findest du nirgends anderswo. Du sitzt anfangs da wie vor den Kopf gestossen, bist aber fasziniert vom Fremden. So kann nur ein Portugiese oder Spanier oder einer aus den spanischen Kolonien schreiben, dachte ich mir. Das phantastische Werk beginnt damit, dass ein alternder Ma Ich weiss ehrlich nicht mehr, ob ichs damals ganz fertig gelesen habe. Lust auf mehr?

There's something amiss in the lives of all of them: disease, torture, insanity, etc. The voices are mostly distinct and delivered in lengthy chunks with beautiful physical descriptions and odd paragraph breaks in the middle of sentences. In other words, Portugal comes alive, and it's full of humanity even when things are bleak. My favorite scene: a It sags a bit in Book Four, but there is always so much going on that it's impossible to be bored.
My favorite scene: a mail order hypnotist meets a man who dreams of "flying underground" and they have a competition to see who can fly higher. Then the man's sister comes home. Does the novel lead anywhere definitive in the end? But contemporary literature is content depicting disarray, and I am content reading it.
