It makes us feel like going over and putting a hand on her hard shoulder and whispering a saramgao words of sympathy in her ear, or, rather, in the place where her ear once was, underneath the parietal. A book about a place where suddenly nobody dies anymore [s].

And 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? Did the death fall in love so easily?

The following day, no one died. It needs a whole new genre to itself, fantasy philosophy perhaps.

As it happened in Blindnessthe realism of it intermutencias is striking. Do you want to know what the real consequences of an hypothetical eternal life are? 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?

As we read Death with Interruptions we really appreciate the truth of that statement. Funeral workers, on the other hand, fear the opposite problem: There are no characters, or barely, it is all situations.

The book ends, as it began, by interkitencias that no one died the next day. Also, Saramago has a very distinct voice that I can’t get enough of.

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. So death for example saraago be lethal but perhaps it is not morbid.



No one writes quite like Saramago. Eternal life, the eternal dream.

Lists with This Book. Saramago once again does the impossible and all I can say is that after the last page you can’t help but say “aww”. The Catholic Church feels threatened by this new turn of events, as the end of death would call into question one of the fundamental foundations of their dogma: 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.

So I’m listening to this book: The New York Times. He knows how politicians and academics and policemen and peasants talk and what they mean when they talk, which is often the opposite of what they say. Saramago begins Death at Intervals with very broad strokes.
