• A novel that has soul, which Saramago offers to his readers with all his witty, intelligent, tender and magical generosity

    Samantha Harvey, Independent
  • Offers an unearthly, muted beauty; a freedom from the obvious, the ideological and trivial; an atmosphere of profound serenity, and a benevolent humor

    Literary Review
  • Both delightful and unsettling which is perhaps the mark of true literature

    Anthony Daniels, Sunday Telegraph
  • A tantalizing novel...shifting and teasing, full of metaphorical labyrinths and false trails

  • It is the marriage of the living and the dying...that so strongly characterizes the writing of Jose Saramago

    New Statesman
