I read and giggled all the way through the first 20 or so pages, sitting by the bay drinking crisp white wine that tasted a little like pineapple.

Open Preview See a Problem? Dream come true, right? I think it’ll be worth the effort. Yes, the entirety of the novel does seem a bit fragmented, however its ability to penetrate an issue such as death and its spirited treatment of it deserves high praise.

But death has more plans. So I’m listening to this book: What is there to fear then? No, his style does not change. The dream of eternal life has founded religions that changed the shape of the world. It’s deaththe female noun in so many languages, whose whim led to such perturbances in the function of the state and religion and philosophy.

Now I want to continue his works with reading Seeingwhich is the sequel to Blindnessanother fantastic book I also recommend wholeheartedly. As his literature Nobel Prize attests, he knows how to write. Life itself has quickly become the burden – oh how the tables have turned! 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 parietal.

You can guess what some of his messages were. As a rather imaginative story dealing with a very familiar yet unwelcome theme, kose manages to paint death in a fair and, ironically, impersonal light without being emotional or needlessly sentimental.

Saramago allows himself to follow a line of thought to its logical conclusion, even if that conclusion is absurd to the point of ridiculousness.

In the second section of the novel, Saramago zooms in and shows this event on a small scale; his major focus is on death herself and how she relates to the world. The surprising strangeness of the second half of the novel justifies the meanderings of the first. JP Peste Somewhere around the middle it was boring, but then, when death becomes the main character, it became one of my favourite books.

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.

When taken away, as intermitencjas 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. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. The book ends, as it began, by interkitencias that no one died infermitencias next day.

Las Intermitencias de la muerte – Jose Saramago | CAMILO AMORTEGUI CORTES –

Return to Book Page. A short period of euphoria is followed by despair and chaos. It may have been due in part that I devoured most of it while seated upon the sun soaked banks of a river this past July, but this short little work really struck me.

I would highly recommend this to any Saramago fan, and to anyone new to this Nobel laureate’s works although I think Blindness might be a better starting point. And why can’t I stop myself from sighing and quietly saying, ingermitencias This is an exercise in conjecture, not realism.

People search for ways to trick death into killing; the elderly are seen with the hatred reserved only for that which we cannot alter. Ingermitencias industry develops so quickly that the government itself becomes beholden to the maphioso, even bringing it to the brink of war with its neighbors.
