Out of the half dozen Saramago novels I have read, this is actually my favorite.
Open Preview See a Problem? He knows how politicians and academics and policemen and peasants talk and what they mean when they talk, which is often the opposite of what they say. I promise you the book is worth it, and the concept is very interesting, and keeps interesting throughout the book.

But death has more plans. Love towards the life humans live, and… is she falling in love with someone? She decides to play even more intermitncias people, and she wants to have more fun. People lose jobs no more inteermitencias for undertakers or gravediggers, and so many others that depended on it.

Saramago begins Death at Intervals with very broad strokes. The book can be separated into two parts, the first part is a study of conceptual death or more accurately the loss thereof, and how it would affect the lives of the mortal beings suddenly deemed immortal. The common citizens, however, generally enjoy their newfound immortality. This book is filled with wisdom about death, life, our tendencies as mortal creatures. As a rather imaginative story dealing with a very familiar yet unwelcome theme, it manages to paint death in a fair and, ironically, impersonal light without being emotional or needlessly sentimental.

Lo stratagemma narrativo intdrmitencias a Saramago l’occasione di dileggiare non solo le istituzioni statali ed ecclesiastiche, ma gli atteggiamenti, le reazioni tipiche dell’uomo che tende a sfruttare a proprio vantaggi “Io non sono la Morte, sono semplicemente morte”- SCIOPERO!!!! I hope it improves one way or infermitencias other. The last third of the novel flashed by me.
I read and giggled all the way through the first 20 or so pages, sitting by the bay drinking crisp white wine that tasted a little like pineapple. Life itself has quickly become the burden – oh how the tables have turned! But as it progressed death slowly gained, like it slurped away life from a gravely ailing elderly, qualities of a human being.
