El Evangelio según Jesucristo by José Saramago (2 star ratings)
Mi sfugge il motivo per cui Giuseppe viene mandato a morte per crocifissione. I feel like I should be ashamed of this.
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 saramato book” Saramago’s characters often get into philosophical arguments, wherein his anti-God views also come out on top.
Refresh and try again. And that’s saying a lot because the main character is Jesus Christ, who you’d think would be a pretty dynamic character.
El evangelio según Jesucristo / The Gospel According to Jesus Christ
I find it annoying when all the women of the New Testament are conflated. The structure and time of writing are too incertain Well, the iesucristo twists are imaginative.
I also feel like the story has a different interpretation of the crucifixion than my understanding.
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. Bad theology and crooked philosophy. Account Options Sign in. Instead, I felt like I was reading a report, a hampered journalistic account of the book’s events. The story had good pace, the characters were sfgun well developed, but I found myself getting annoyed every time I picked it up.
Again, Saramago is only telling the side of the story that will prove his own point without suggesting even a hint of doubt about his beliefs. Most of the strength of this novel lies with the realism of the fl setting you can often see the dust of 1st century Palestine, etc. Saamago love to know what other people think about this book if they’ve read it.
But there remains a sense of the extraordinary, wonder to evangepio story and a dark foreboding cloud lies over the evanglio novel. Lots of exposition, but everything seemed to wrap up abruptly.
I also did not like the ending. Jesus Himself is fallible even error-prone on some occasionssinful He has lots of sex with Mary Magdalene out of wedlockand, again, nothing like the Jesus we know from Scripture. But I doubt that I will venture into reading other Saramago books.
Near the end, Jesus asks God to tell Him what will happen after the former’s death on the cross. I wasn’t necessarily “offended” by this book, as I know many people were it IS mocking and irreverentbut I did not find it to be very interesting, engaging or original.
User Review – Flag as inappropriate 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.
I laughed about 10 minutes in, then I was bored for the entire rest of the book. That’s just the way I roll. Is there anything positive then? Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
These elements are well done. Saramago, an atheist, attempts to retell the story of Jesus Christ in a manner that suits his religious and philosophical beliefs. 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.
I guess I’m just not impressed by hearing the same boring stories I’ve heard all my life, but told in a slightly different tone, with sex added. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. I can’t jesucriwto put my finger on why. 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.
I do not know about the other titles, but Unlike great authors, Saramago never offers much room for interpretation or the possibility of being wrong or seghn in doubt.
