El Evangelio Segun Jesucristo : Jose Saramago :
According to the author, this book is like a second reading of the Gospels, like a trip to the origins of religion. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Paperbackpages. I also couldn’t quite figure out why he wrote it–it didn’t seem like a book written to Not for me.
It doesn’t restrict its creativity to the gaps of the story, which may bother readers like it did for me. 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 le “Blessed is the reader who manages to reach the end of this book” That is, the characters which espouse the author’s atheistic viewpoint God is evil, Christianity is bad, etc.

I also did not like the ending. Una historia muy interesante. I was always of the belief that it made sacrifices of animals and slaves obsolete, hence the commonly spoken descriptions “ultimate sacrifice” and “died for your sins.
I know that everybody loves Saramago. I just wish Saramago had learnt how to use commas and fullstops at school; to be a bit less clever or pretentious as some people would say ; and finally to be better at keeping me entertained. Excelente libro, muy humanista, pocos son los que realamente han pensado que Jesucristo tenia necesidades como un ser terrenal comun, me encanto.
It’s obvious a genius wrote it. Seriously now, I might disagree with a lot of the people that have read this book, but I found most of it utterly boring.
Just go saeamago read Kazantsakis or And Jesus lives with Mary Magdalene as a husband would. From inside the book. Unlike great authors, Saramago never offers much room for interpretation or the possibility of being wrong or even in doubt.
These elements are well done. I have 75 pages left, but I just can’t do it. Feb 03, Jonathan Walker rated it it was ok.

I rate it 2 and that’s for the example of what a book written on such a subject shouldn’t be like In the end, this silly story got too big for its evangrlio good and enough is enough, I guess. I find it annoying when all the women of the New Testament are conflated.
Saramago no es mi autor favorito. Want to Read saving…. This book made me think “ooh, isn’t this author smart” but I felt nothing for the characters.
The problem is that Saramago sometimes makes assertions without offering any sort of narrative argumentation i. Jesus is more human, than divine. Saramago’s idiosyncratic style and refusal to use quotation marks or italics or create indentations more than once or twice a page is, in my opinion, no good.
Christians love them some Jesus which is nice and all, but can at least atheists stop giving the guy so much attention?

I wanted to read a first person account of the life of Jesus Christ, and the book definitely didn’t delivered that It is no wonder that the first time I picked up this book to try reading it, I didn’t get past the first few pages – it just bored me – and that it took a cross Atlantic flight of 6 hours for me to finally get far enough along to end up finishing the book.
But I doubt that I eegun venture into reading other Saramago books.

Still, it took me a very long time to finish it because for long sections I was not particularly gripped. I also couldn’t quite figure out why he wrote it–it didn’t seem like evantelio book written to encourage or discourage the believer, nor provoke thought in the atheist. Too boring in discussing atheism va catholicism contraditions. La escritura creativa en las aulas: This guy is a Nobel Prize winner, so that must mean I’m an idiot if I don’t like him, right?
He spent most of his childhood on his parent’s farm, except while attending school in Lisbon.
