review As Intermitências da Morte

As Intermitências da Morte Read & Download â 8 Vejez eternaSe buscarán maneras de forzar a la muerte a matar aunue no lo uiera se corromperán las conciencias en los «acuerdos de caballeros» explícitos o tácitos entre el poder político las mafias y las familias los ancianos serán detestados por haberse convertido en estorbos irremovibles Hasta el día en ue la muerte decide volverArrancando una vez más de una proposición contraria a. The dream of immortality has always fascinated humanity The dream of eternal life has founded religions that changed the shape of the world What if it were true The following day no one diedSo begins Jos Saramago s Death with Interruptions In an unnamed small European country without any explanations people have stopped dying an eternal dream come true rightWhat else can we want now once the threat of unavoidable demise has been removed seemingly forever once the unstoppable Grim Reaper seems to have retired Having lived until those days of confusion in what they had imagined to be the best of all possible and probable worlds they were discovering with delight that the best the absolute best was happening right now right there at the door of their house a uniue and marvelous life without the daily fear of parca s creaking scissors immortality in the land that gave us our being safe from any metaphysical awkwardnesses and free to everyone with no sealed orders to open at the hour of our death announcing at that crossroads where dear companions in this vale of tears known as earth were forced to part and set off for their different destinations in the next world you to paradise you to purgatory you down to hell Well once the celebrations died down it uickly becomes obvious that this paradise on earth comes at a price 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 One must admit that the prospects are not just gloomy they re terrible catastrophic dangerous by far than anything even the wildest imagination could dream upAnd slowly it sinks in that before long it s not only the undertakers and gravediggers who are out of jobs not only religion that becomes obsolete as its greatest reward resurrection is no longer a big deal seriously Saramago s distaste for religion is very prominently underscored and explained in this book not only the philosophical schools left pointless and speechless it s generations and generations in this society torn between the hope of living forever and the fear of never dying who will have to dedicate themselves to caring for the millions of not uite dead it s the country unprepared to care for the citizens who are no longer free to enjoy the certainty of death Life itself has uickly become the burden oh how the tables have turned If we don t start dying again we have no futureAnd all of this is delivered in Saramago s uniue rambling narration with margin to margin solid text uninterrupted even by dialogue marks jumping from topic to topic zeroing on details and mundane running in the clustered run on sentences It s all delivered in the voice that is both dry and witty detached yet flourishing both mocking and serious 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 It s like an introduction a leisurely essay stretching for 64% of the book the story that somehow despite or maybe because of all this kept the magical charm over me grounding the most improbable of the storyline in the firm reality anchored by human folly and bureaucracy and greed and crime and incredulityAnd then almost two thirds into the story the mood shifts the narration abruptly changes and the new plot emerges folding violet letters into violet envelopes confidently raising its head and wondering Have you missed me I came to steal your heart And the strangest love story begins having nudged the meandering weary satirical narration out of the wayIt s death the female noun in so many languages whose whim led to such perturbances in the function of the state and religion and philosophy It s death who is surprised at the audacity of a mediocre unremarkable middle aged musician who refuses to die It s death a stranger to failure who sets out to investigate and to set the matters right unprepared for what is waiting for her Due to some strange optical phenomenon real or virtual death seems much smaller now as if her bones had shrunk or perhaps she was always like that and it s our eyes wide with fear that make her look like a giant Poor death It makes us feel like going over and putting a hand on her hard shoulder and whispering a few words of sympathy in her ear or rather in the place where her ear once was underneath the parietalIt s where Saramago s prose his entire narration undergoes a fascinating transformation No his style does not change We still have solid blocks of text and meandering ramblings and endless strangely punctuated sentences but the slow shift in the mood and the feeling subtly creeps up making you look up from the book and wonder am I still reading the same story And why do I have those pesky tears glistening in the corners of my eyes And why can t I stop myself from sighing and uietly saying Aww at the endYou know why Because the guy who wrote this book has received a Nobel Prize in literature for a reason Because he is brilliant that s why And because he decided to play around with this story leaving us or at least me unable to resist its pull And so I stand by my 5 star rating from a year ago and begin a desperate hunt for Saramago books For the first time in her life death knew what it felt like to have a dog on her lap

José Saramago º 8 review

As Intermitências da Morte Read & Download â 8 La evidencia de los hechos corrientes José Saramago desarrolla una narrativa de gran fecundidad literaria social y filosófica ue sitúa en el centro la perplejidad del hombre ante la impostergable finitud de la existencia Parábola de la corta distancia ue separa lo efímero de lo eterno Las intermitencias de la muerte bien podría terminar tal como empieza «Al día siguiente no murió nadie?. Update 2 This book is uniue It needs a whole new genre to itself fantasy philosophy perhaps Very entertaining but try as I might I am just not a fan of Saramago s styleUpdate 1 Getting bogged in Saramago s extreme wordiness and I could do with a bit dialogue than this constant narration There are no characters or barely it is all situations It isn t uninteresting but it isn t gripping or enjoyable either I hope it improves one way or the otherI like what Saramago writes but I don t like the way he writes it If his style was adopted by the average unedited SPA it wouldn t get the excuses let alone praise it does for this Nobel Prize winner So I m listening to this book At least I won t have to look at the weird and mostly absent punctuation and marathon run on sentences Hopefully a good narrator will somehow make interesting his extreme verbosity too Listening to this book I hope is going to give the nugget of genius story telling that I love Saramago for
