Death with Interruptions

Death with Interruptions - José Saramago, Margaret Jull Costa https://msarki.tumblr.com/post/156528723823/death-with-interruptions-by-jos%C3%A9-saramago

Death With Interruptions fails in its embellished and sentimental concept of love conquering death. A silly book, at first look, ripe with satire and unflattering looks into religion and laws of the state. A promising beginning in light of its goofiness. Of course, the question of immortality rises to the surface of this murky, but fitfully effervescent, book. And for me, the unusually boring and grating text assured the avoidance for any further Saramago in my life. Not a popular stance to take among his many admirers, and of late, seeming to be the trend and frustrating result of my choosing the wrong books to read. And perhaps my lack of appropriate courage to more quickly abandon them.
