That’s just the way I roll. References to this book La escritura creativa en las aulas: Aug 11, Amida Lechuga rated it it was ok. So why the mixed feelings? So let me say that saamago a long and slow to get started but well-written and sophisticated.

It needs a more narratively savvy approach! Near the end, Jesus asks God to tell Him what will happen after the former’s death on the cross. Excelente libro, muy humanista, pocos son los que realamente han pensado que Jesucristo tenia necesidades como un ser terrenal comun, me encanto.

OK, I have officially given up on this book. At age saramaggo, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in for his work in which “parables sustained by imagination, compassion and irony, continually enables us to apprehend an elusory reality. Saramago’s characters often get into philosophical arguments, wherein his anti-God views also come out on top.

I’m wondering if the painting described in the first evangeoio is a evangepio one, any clues? Saramago no es mi autor favorito.

There are just too many other books out there to read, to spend any more time on something I’m not enjoying. Perhaps that makes me a lazy re OK, I have officially given up on this book. It’s obvious a genius wrote it. But there remains a sense of the extraordinary, wonder to the story and a dark foreboding cloud lies over the ent Not the typical story of Jesus and the holy family at least not the one I grew up with.


Jesus meeting Mary Magdalene b.

The problem is that Saramago sometimes makes assertions without offering any sort of narrative argumentation i. I also did not like the ending.

I also couldn’t quite figure out why he wrote it–it didn’t seem like a book written to evangwlio or discourage the believer, nor provoke thought in the atheist. It’s definitely creative and smart. What’s wrong with you people giving stars to this book!?! 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 at first suspected.

Non ci sono praticamente capoversi, i dialoghi sono intervallati da virgole senza andare a capo, se superano le tre-quattro battute sembra di seugn l’equivalente letterario di una partita di ping-pong. I did not like evangello emphasis on Mary Magdalene as a prostitute. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. I was hoping for a smart Jesus, not for one adrift and confused.

El evangelio según Jesucristo / The Gospel According to Jesus Christ

I think I am going to move this book along to someone who might appreciate it more. LuciferGodJesusJosephMary. Ultimately, I just found it slow and boring–which, given the content, was surprising to me.

Perhaps that makes me a lazy reader. Saramago’s house in Lanzarote is also open to the public.

From inside the book. I think this is a well written book. If Saramago had examined both the good and bad of Christianity and found the latter to outweigh the former, I can respect that even if I fervently disagree with the conclusion. 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.

I have 75 pages left, but I just can’t do it. In all, Saramago’s work has some slight positive elements, but on the whole, I simply find it lacking and will never read it again. These elements are well done.


This guy is a Nobel Prize winner, so that must mean I’m an idiot if I don’t like him, right? It doesn’t restrict its creativity to the gaps of the story, which may bother readers like it did for me. Nobel prize de Literatura the Gospel according to Jesus Christ responds the desire of degun man and a writer to excavate until the roots of the own civilization, in the mystery of its tradition, to extract the essential questions.

It re-envisions the story of Jesus in a way that attempts to reconcile discrepancies between the old and new testament, so it crafts God and Satan into very different characters than those imagined by the Abrahamic religions. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Es un libro excelente si uno quiere ver a un jesus de una manera mas humana excelente forma de imaginar a un jesus que siente piensa y vive una vida humana.

Saramago construye su idea del mundo: Maybe it was because this was my first attempt at reading a book on an electronic device, but I found myself not eager to pick it up. Bulghakov’s “Master and Margarita”. Saramago is not my favorite author.

I feel like I should be ashamed of safamago. 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. But I don’t read for intellectual stimulation unless I’m in a literature class.

El Evangelio Segun Jesucristo : Jose Saramago :

Is there anything positive then? The final chapter, which is written in a superb manner.

He spent most of his childhood on his parent’s farm, except while attending school in Lisbon. El argumento es agradable e interesante.
