This review is from: Year of the Death of Ricardo Reis (Panther S.) (Paperback)
This story is captivating. Saramago is a wonderful writer! The plot does seem to lag at times but you must continue reading as it is definately worth it. Quite thought provoking with typical Saramago questions about time and reading. I do recommend, however, that you familiarize yourself with the poet Fernando Pessoa as this poet is one of the characters in the novel. Enjoy!
