    At the end of certain pages, the reader begins to gain a complicity with the so called traveler , a character who gives life to the writer himself, doing a self evaluation.Visiting monuments of superior cultural interest, in the context of the Portuguese people churches, museums, monasteries , mixed with some words with their personal stamp, I should not consider this work the most meritorious of Saramago.It is also a portrait of the deep Portugal, both urban and rural.

    Saramago is a congenial travel companion, although I have to admit to less of an interest in churches than he displays Actually, than most people display It was over ambitious of me to think that I would actually read all of this before travelling to Portugal, and maybe, maybe it was over ambitious of Saramago to think that he could create something that was neither guide book nor travel book Maybe, maybe it was my mistake to think that I could use something that wasn t meant as a guide book as [...]

    this could be the most quirky travel book you will ever read if you stick with it you will get in to his rhythm the rhythm of a grumpy genius old man motoring around Portugal s back roads if you get stuck behind him in a car it could take DAYS to pass him If you talk to him in a bar or the cloister of a monastery if could change your life.

    Saramago s gift for turning anything into a story shines through in this travelogue which even manages to make Portugal seem worth a visit He has a way of nosing out the interesting a town with an ancient statue of a pig on a column, for example The man himself feels like a disagreeable travel comanion He focuses largely on churches and castles, appears to shun companionship and the new while remaining aloof and treating his surroundings with a slight air of pomposity Having written that, howeve [...]

    Para los que quedamos flechados por Portugal, este libro anecdotario de Jos Saramago es Un maravilloso compendio de viaje alternativo de norte a sur y de este a oeste, donde no solo los amigos narran sus experiencias, sino que tambi n las rocas promueven acercarse a las palmas y las aguas a beber de su cauce Un libro muy al estilo del Premio N bel donde no discurren complicados y alargados di logos, m s bien donde un pa s exalta de manera noble y precisa su orgullosa tierra llena de tradiciones [...]

    I have tried to read this book twice, both times never making it past 30 pages or so I lived in Portugal for a little than a year and a half, from 1998 to mid 1999 I love Portugal and the Portuguese, and was excited to read this book both times I tried Maybe it is the narrative voice he uses He speaks of himself in the unfamiliar third person Perhaps I will pick up the book in Portuguese and try it one time With how rusty my Portuguese is, I m not optimistic of the results.

    Alas I didn t finish this although Saramago s affection for his country shines through, the travelogue aspect of it going from one little town to another was ultimately rather boring It is a trip that I would enjoy taking than reading about.

    I started this while in Lisbon, but put it down pretty quickly There s an arch quality to the narrator s voice that puts me off He refers to himself as The Traveler throughout I m wondering if it s the translation, but whatever it is, I don t need to read any.

    Put u Portugaliju je pravi je mamac za sve one koji vole Portugaliju i ili obo avaju Saramaga i naizgled je savr ena kombinacija Ali mene je ova knjiga obmanula.O ekivao sam da na ovom putovanju vidim opise prelepih predela, hrane i pi a, ljudi i obi aja, ali svega toga ima samo u tragovima A kao strastveni ljubitelj Saramaga nisam mogao da do ekam da se ponovo sretnem sa njegovim duhovitim stilom, punim iznenadnih obrta i fantasti nih elemenata, ali i toga ima jako malo Umesto svega toga dobio [...]

    Questo libro stato il compagno di viaggio delle mie vacanze in terra portoghese e viaggiare con un premio Nobel ha contribuito a rendere questo viaggio ancora pi indimenticabile.Il libro il resoconto di uno straordinario viaggio fatto da Saramago tra le pieghe del suo paese Con la sua tipica pignoleria, Jose ha architettato un lungo viaggio di scoperta che lo ha portato da nord a sud passando per localit famose e paesini sconosciuti, incontrando persone e scoprendo storie e tradizioni Questo lib [...]

    Foi atribulada a viagem de Jos Saramago a Portugal Um corropio de visitas a igrejas e museus para fazer a rela o dos detalhes art sticos e arquitect nicos antes de passar apressadamente terra seguinte As igrejas encontrava as o mais das vezes fechadas, e a parte de mais interessante da aventura era sempre o ter de encontrar a pessoa que guardava a chave para a poder visitar, embora muitas vezes n o se desse a esse trabalho.De hist rias de viagem e pessoas que encontra, aquilo em que melhor podia [...]

    Fue muy aburrido.Sufr demasiado, Creo que ya he tenido suficiente de Saramago para toda mi vida, no es una gu a de viaje, es, mejor dicho, la descripci n de un viaje a Portugal por alguien obsesionado con la descripci n que adem s abusa de las referencias.No obstante, a pesar de ser excesivamente descriptivo de las situaciones usa s lo 6 o 7 palabras para describir los objetos que s podr an ser importantes, las palabras se repiten much simo J nicoVisigodoQuinientisaSetecentistaOctocentistaManuel [...]

    Though this doesn t purport to be a guide book, I d hoped to either be immersed in the storytelling or at least have it augment my sense of place during recent travels to Portugal Alas, the effort fell flat for me I didn t want to be bored, but I very much was The sameness of every single visit to every church in every town Looking for the keys to said churches Tasty or not tasty meals, an art museum, a wet road Repeat At least there were a few photos to break the tedium Read this one at a fast [...]

    I think this book would have been better served to me after going to Portugal But it is a comprehensive road trip across the country, looking at the churches and some of the people who find themselves living in their small town, either affected or unaffected by the religious and folkloric artifacts around them Very thorough perhaps too much so for the casual reader about this Iberian nation But I ll take anything Saramago serves.

    I m going to have to put Saramego aside for now I m enjoying his writing style, his point of view, and his personality, but I m finding that this is not a book for someone new to Portugal, its history, or its culture Saramego references events, writers, and historical by name and with little context for the uninformed A beautiful book, but not what I m looking for before my first trip to Portugal although I ll likely read the geographically relevant sections before I go.

    Victoria
    I read this for two reasons I love Saramago and I wanted to learn about Portugal.Both goals were met and exceeded Saramago s humanity, sense of humor irony, and understanding of the human spirit are in every page, every line you just want to read slower to relish his writing.Portugaln t wait to go

    Non dovuto trascorrere molto tempo da quando ho ricominciato a leggere con intensit , per rendermi conto che c un limite nelle dimensioni di una storia oltre il quale mantenere il livello qualitativo della stessa diventa pressoch impossibile Non escludo che una delle cause possa essere l et che avanza del lettore sono finiti i bei tempi in cui si facevano le ore piccole per arrivare alla ottocentesima pagina, che so, di Shogun di james Clavell , ma questo non incide minimamente sulla generalit d [...]

    Giving up on this one,at least for now I m bored out of my mind Sorry, Saramago, but this is your first fail.

    I did not finish this book, though I have finished and enjoyed at least three other of Saramago s works A year or so ago I struggled with DH Lawrence s book on his travels through Italy I found myself in a similar frame of mind when I read this Saramago s portrait of his country as much as I read of it, along the Douro River from its source in Spain to near where it empties into the Atlantic at Porto is SO intimate that I found myself learning less about the country, as I d hoped, than about Sar [...]

    O viajante viajou no seu pa s Isto significa que viajou por dentro de si mesmo, pela cultura que o formou e est formando, significa que foi, durante muitas semanas, um espelho refletor das imagens exteriores, uma vidra a transparente que luzes e sombras atravessaram, uma placa sens vel que registou, em tr nsito e processo, as impress es, as vozes, o murm rio infind vel de um povo.

    I live in Texas and I think I will reconstitute Saramago s excursion through all the podunk parts of Portugal in my home state What I shall do is visit every small town in Texas and describe in great detail the doorways and window latches on the courthouses I will also disappointedly visit some county museums Throughout I will insist that this exercise is seeing the real Texas and claim that anything remotely modern streetlights, buses, business cards is an affront to history and must be rejecte [...]

    The journey is never over Only travellers come to an end Saramago ends this wonderful book on a note which is most most appropriate in the hands of a master storyteller One really feels priviledged in the company of a sensitive writer sensitive to the place he belongs to, a place which is effortlessly shown to us to be than just a place.I had started Journey to Portugal a few months ago and I knew right away that it is just the way with this book I literally savoured the descriptions of the cou [...]

    When the traveler awoke the day had scarcely dawn, and he observed that it was not only the river s murmur which had disturbed him This is a book for any traveler, but important for the people that have some sort of sentimental attachment to Portugal, for the one that has traveled it, for the one that knows it, or for the one that want to know it Down the Rio Douro, where the border with Spain is, the road trip begins Saramago refers to himself as the traveler throughout the entire book one has [...]

    The man has firm opinions about the architecture of cathedrals His aesthetic discussions tend to turn into rants, and many of the places he describes seem to be rendered in prose that s only illuminating to someone who views the same scene The pictures help, sometimes, but the prose was frankly not helping me to imagine what he saw and felt There are some entertaining interludes, and folklore, but they are intermixed with his lengthy old man complaints about how steep hills are, the callowness o [...]

    Journey to Portugal is divided into six sections as Saramago covers his native country from north to south by car, apparently alone The book s subheading is A Pursuit of Portuguese History and Culture and it does include interesting accounts and anecdotes about history and legends, which is all well and good My main problem with this book however is the amount of time the author who refers to himself in the third person the traveller throughout spends visiting and describing churches and other r [...]

    I did not like this This not as a travel guide, which was stated at the outset by Jose Saramago, and I read it with this in mind However, I was disappointed Whether this was due to the lost in translation from Portuguese to English, or the style, or both, I m not sure The third person use of the traveller through the book fell flat with me, and took out the personal touch that I thought I was going to be reading The other major put off was the soliloquy to the fishes when the author crossed the [...]

    I am about a quarter of the way through right now 17 Agosto 10 Savoring every sentence as I wish to explore Portugal someday on a leisurely tour Since I check books out from the public library system, I am going to have to return this tome I am concurrently reading Jos Saramago s Stone Raft This too , from the library system I can see that both books I must purchase as I do not want to rush through them or feel the tick of the due date clock ticking His writing style really excites me and I love [...]
