A Viagem do ElefanteA fall from grace can come very swiftly or as the Romans used to say the Tarpeian Rock is close to the Capitol That idea though not that exact expression was in my mind from the beginning of The Elephant s JourneyA very likeable character called p ro de alc ova carneiro features impressively in the early pages of this tale He is secretary of state to the king of Portugal and is thinly veiled ironic responses to the monarch s rather dim uestions cause the reader to worry for Kraken: An Anatomy his safety we seeim being thrown from the nearest The Best I Can Be high rock ife doesn t soon mend is ways Although p ro is a master of nuance the eual of many a great Shakespearian character e doesn t merit a capital letter in this story characters names are rarely written with capitals in Saramago s books Nevertheless the reader begins to Daughter of the Alien Warrior Treasured by the Alien hope in the early pages that p ro will play a capital part in the tale But Saramago uickly dampens any suchopes concerning the very patient and clever p ro whom we may not see again although perhaps we will because life laughs at predictions and introduces words where we imagined silences and sudden returns when we thought we would never see each other again With such convoluted phrases does Saramago challenge all of our presumed ideas about narrative and its conventions from the very beginning of this story Fire on the Water he takes common notions clich s almost such as the assumption that events may be predicted or predictable and uickly turns them and us inside out and upside down The reader is wrong footed from the startere not knowing who the main character will be in this account of the gifting of an elephant by the king of Portugal Dom Jo o the third to Once Upon an Eid his cousin Maximilian the second of Austria in 1552If p ro can be dropped so easily we wonder what fate awaits subhro the clever mahout who tends the elephant and whom the reader begins to see as the main character if of course the wise elephant called Solomon is notimself the main character soon after the dispensable p ro is left behind by the story in Lisbon along

wheree really belongs in the dust or the snow whichever applies One particular slow day on the ROMANCE hazardous journey a daydream te Saramago wasaving some snacks at a restaurant when Chosen for Greatness he noticed some engravings of an elephant on the walls He enuired about it and was informed about an elephant back in the sixteenth century whoad journeyed across the continent and through the peninsula and then passed on into legend Saramago felt there was material for a story there and set out to investigate a bit about the Eyes off the Prize The United Nations and the African American Struggle for Human Rights 19441955 historical details of this long journey The result is this book It was supposed to be a charming little novel This reviewer is sorry to report that while this is an interesting example ofow good authors can pluck good stories out of thin air there was nothing Rescued by Tordin (Olodian Alien Warrior, here that was of real interest toim in terms of engaging characters The First Mistake historical significance or even a good yarn Yes this is a book ofistorical fiction It is based on a true event in Shell Beak Tusk history In 1551 King Jo o III of

people this being a direct uote from the book description And people this being a direct uote from the book description And this book is primarily a book of The Adventurers humor To be explicit it is a book of ironic satire It is written with modern terminology We are not to analyze the appropriateness of the terminology These are NOT the expressions of the 1500s They are not meant to be Instead we are meant to chuckle at the incongruence of our modern way of thinking and theistorical events as they unfolded It is very funny and I praise Saramago for Mommy on Board Unspoken Confessions Bride

The narrator was excellent Her intonations were perfect She Charmed Particles has earneder money It is worth paying a bit for the audio version than struggling through the written never ending sentences That is what I think Do you want a sophisticated chuckle Listen to this book It pains me a bit to give a Saramago book such a low rating but of the seven of Running with the Kenyans his that
