Ultimately, I just found it slow and boring–which, given the content, was surprising to me. I laughed about 10 minutes in, then I was bored for the entire rest of the book. Nobel prize de Literatura the Gospel according to Jesus Christ responds the desire of a man and a writer to excavate until the roots of the own civilization, in the mystery of its tradition, to extract the essential questions Some critics may adore it, but I find it unbearable, annoying, and pointless i.
Paperbackpages. Si son cristianos no lean este libro, no se hagan ese mal. Saramago construye su idea del mundo: For the last few days, I have picked it up only to put it down again as soon as I read the first sentence five times. Most of the strength of this novel lies with the realism of the story’s setting you can often see the dust of 1st century Palestine, etc. Well, the plot twists are imaginative.
I think I jesucrisho going to move this book along to someone who might appreciate it more.
Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. The structure and time of writing are too incertain According to the author, this book is ecangelio a second reading of the Gospels, like a trip to the origins of religion. And as for the Holy Spirit, well, He is hinted at as an impersonal force rather than a divine person.
The plot is provocative, but in a lazy way. There’s nothing wrong with being firm in your convictions, but good fiction written for the literary set is not made evagelio such one-dimensional thought.
Although he wrote his first novel inhe waited some 35 years before winning critical acclaim for work such as the Memorial do Convento. I also did not like the ending.
Just a few pages in, Saramago’s narrator claims that Jesus is mistaken to forgive the repentant thief while condemning the other thief on the cross. Things improve a bit when Jesus decides to make an appearance at some point, but his life, as we all know, is short-lived and thus we are left even more frustrated not only because of His premature death, but also because he has abandoned us alone with Saramago.
However, to dwell on the bad without even hinting at or touching upon the good of Christianity is intellectually dishonest. Not the typical story of Jesus and the holy family at least not the one I grew up with. God in this novel is distracted, unloving, unjust, decidedly neither omniscient nor omnipotent, and clearly nowhere near God the Father as seen in the Bible.
But alas, I have given up my intellectual pretenses and have accepted that I’m a hopeless romantic. I was hoping for a smart Jesus, not for one adrift and confused. The language is steeped in the ordinary, in the everyday experience of the senses.
Well, it’s always risky to rewrite a religious story and I am of the opinion that i I feel very mixed about this book. Do you know Jesus Christ? An interesting concept of the humanity of Jesus. There are also three scenes that I really liked a. I do not know about the sarxmago titles, but Interesting modern attempt to understand the duality resulting from being both human and divine at the same time, but never having read the novel by Kazantzakis I suspect that this one is not as original as might be saramafo first suspected.
Saramago’s house in Lanzarote jesuctisto also open to the public. I wasn’t necessarily “offended” by this book, as I saramzgo many people were it IS mocking and irreverentbut I did not find it to be very interesting, engaging or original. This is the story of the life of Jesus, but the first third or more focused on Joseph of Nazareth. Thanks for telling us about the problem. The first part in particular, which is mostly about Joseph, is dull and goes on and on His works, some of which can be seen as allegories, commonly present subversive perspectives on historic events, emphasizing the human factor rather than the officially sanctioned story.
This was a tedious read for me. Published January 1st by Punto de Lectura first published Nobel prize de Literatura the Gospel according to Jesus Christ responds the desire of a man and a writer to excavate until the roots of the own civilization, in the mystery of its tradition, to extract the essential questions. But I doubt that I will venture into reading other Saramago books.
This was for a book club, and it was suggested by a friend who sang high praises of this author. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. I really espected more.
Il libro mi sembra una enorme occasione perduta. Lists with This Book. La primera tercera parte empieza bien. Well, it’s always risky to rewrite a religious story and I am of the opinion that if you’re going to do it, then you really have to know your stuff.
evanggelio Nobel prize de Literatura the Gospel according to Jesus Christ responds the desire of a man and a writer to excavate until the roots of the own ci. There are just too many other books out there to read, to spend any more time on something I’m not enjoying.
Saramago, an atheist, attempts to retell the story of Jesus Christ in a manner that suits his religious and philosophical beliefs. Se abren las posibilidades de ver a Jesus como un verdadero ser humano entre las vicisitudes y las virtudes.
I also liked Saramago’s cheekiness, but I am a cheeky bugger, too, and nobody seems to give me any Nobel prize for my efforts!
