There’s an arch quality to the narrator’s voice that puts me off.


Finalmente viagdm l’ho fatta! Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Roba che ti ricorda la dodicesima minestra di capellini dell’indimenticabile Gian Burrasca. Easily a three star rating.

Read this one at a fast skimming pace. He begins, in the far northeast, Tras-do-montes, made famous much later in The High Mountains of Portugal.

At least there were a few photos to break the tedium.

Bisogna ricominciare il viaggio. Ou serviu a que da escarpa foi retirada brutalmente para abrir a plataforma onde se cavaram os alicerces. Saramago is a wonderful writer, and I was finally able to appreciate his observations. Well for one, and having been to Portugal, there are a lot of churches, castles and places to stop for lunch.

Journey to Portugal: In Pursuit of Portugal’s History and Culture

The beauty of the writing and the pleasure of the company doesn’t quite make up for the fact that basically, he’s visiting places that have little to offer apart from, yawn a church.

Both goals were met and exceeded. I have tried to read this book twice, both times never making it past 30 pages or so. Saramago was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in Alcuni passaggi sono filosofici e vicini al cuore di chi come me ama il viaggio nel senso lato del termine.


Posso dire che il libro mi sia piaciuto, ma non mi ha completamente conquistato.

His work includes plays, poetry, short stories, nonfiction, and seven novels, including Baltasar and Blimunda and The History of the Seige of Lisbon. Paperbackpages. Democracy is still young and the country is very poor.

I almost felt like we were comparing notes! Visiting monuments of superior cultural interest, in the context of the Portuguese people churches, museums, monasteriesmixed with some words with their personal stamp, I should not consider this work the most meritorious of Saramago.

Sorry, Saramago, but this is your first fail.
