Lists with This Book. OK, I have evamgelio given up on this book. I have 75 pages left, but I just can’t do it. For the last few days, I have picked it up only to put it down again as soon as I read the first sentence five times.
This guy is a Nobel Prize winner, jeaucristo that must mean I’m an idiot if I don’t like him, right? This sarmago is smart, don’t get me wrong. It’s obvious a genius wrote it. But I don’t read for intellectual stimulation unless I’m in a literature class. Perhaps that makes me a lazy re OK, I have officially given up on this book.
Perhaps that makes me a lazy reader. If I’m going to spend my little free time with a book, I need it to move me emotionally. That’s just the way I roll. I feel like I evangeluo be ashamed of this. But alas, I degun given up my intellectual pretenses and have accepted that I’m a hopeless romantic.
I need a book to make me cry if I’m going to like it. This book made me think “ooh, isn’t this author smart” but I felt nothing for the characters. And that’s saying a lot because the main character is Jesus Christ, who you’d think would be a pretty dynamic character. I’d love to know what other people think about this book if they’ve read it.

El evangelio según Jesucristo / The Gospel According to Jesus Christ
The first part in particular, which is mostly about Joseph, is dull and goes on and on 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” 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 left even more frustrated not only because of His premature death, but also because he has abandoned us alone with Saramago.
Is there anything positive then? Well, the plot twists are imaginative. There are also three scenes that I really liked a.
Jesus meeting Mary Magdalene b. Ojse on the boat with God and Pastor and c. The final chapter, which is written in a superb manner. I also liked Saramago’s cheekiness, but I am a cheeky bugger, too, and nobody seems to give me any Nobel prize for my efforts!
I evanvelio 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. You know, entertainment and intellectual stimulation can go hand in hand. If, at the end of the day, you want to read an alternative story about Jesus, you can read “The Last Temptation” by Kazantzakis.
It is much better. Una historia muy interesante. Saramago, an atheist, attempts to retell the story of Jesus Christ in a manner that suits his religious and philosophical beliefs. Most of the strength of this novel lies with the realism of the story’s setting you can often see the dust of 1st century Palestine, etc.
The story begins with a foreword of sorts, describing a painting of the Crucifixion. Just a few pages in, Saramago’s narrator claims that Saramago, an atheist, attempts to retell the story of Jesus Christ in a manner that suits his religious and philosophical beliefs.
Just a few pages in, Saramago’s saraamgo claims that Jesus is mistaken to forgive the repentant thief while condemning the other thief on the cross. After this, Saramago tells the story or at least his cherry-picked version of the Anunciation, moving on to the Nativity, the death of Joseph, Jesus’ coming of age, and finally, His ministry and crucifixion naturally, Saramago leaves out the Resurrection, the great event that distinguishes Christianity from all others from both a theological and a historical point of view.
God in this novel is distracted, unloving, evajgelio, decidedly neither omniscient nor omnipotent, and clearly nowhere jesucisto God sarsmago Father as seen in the Bible. Jesus Himself is fallible even error-prone on some occasionssinful He evsngelio lots of sex with Mary Magdalene out of wedlockand, again, nothing like the Jesus we know from Scripture.
And as for the Holy Spirit, well, He is hinted at saramao an impersonal force rather than a divine person. Apart from being rank blasphemy an obvious theological issue which all Christians should take into accountthe novel has many problems.
Saramago’s characters often get into philosophical arguments, wherein his anti-God views also come out on top. The problem is that Saramago sometimes makes assertions without offering any sort of narrative argumentation i.
That is, the characters which espouse the author’s atheistic viewpoint God is evil, Christianity is bad, etc. Unlike great authors, Saramago never offers much room for interpretation or saramagi possibility of being wrong or even in doubt.
There’s nothing wrong with being firm jowe your convictions, but good fiction saeamago for the literary set is not made of such one-dimensional thought. Near the end, Jesus asks God to tell Him what will happen after the former’s death on the cross.
God goes on evanbelio about sarakago a dozen segu naming martyrs and the ways in which they died for the gospel and then mentions the Crusades and the Inquisition. Religion in this novel is generally portrayed as a brutal, ignorant force. Saramago never even hints at incalculable good which Christianity has wrought upon the world for starters, there’s the Salvation Army, United Way, Heartland Hope, Open Door Mission, and thousands upon thousands of hospitals, shelters, and soup kitchens here in the US alone, and that’s only scratching the surface.
Jesucrissto Saramago had examined both the good and bad of Christianity and found the latter to outweigh the former, I can respect that even if I fervently disagree with the conclusion. However, to dwell on the bad without even hinting at or touching upon the good of Christianity is intellectually dishonest. 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.
This last criticism is more a matter of personal taste, but given how big a role it played in my reading of the book, I have to mention it: 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. Some critics may adore joxe, but I find it unbearable, annoying, and pointless i. In all, Saramago’s work has some slight positive elements, but on the whole, I simply find it lacking and evagelio never read it again.
The only way Saramago might have won me over is if he had spiced it up with more of that quirky humor of his. As it is, I find it to be a tedious and pointless read and I see no reason for this story to be retold and distorted for the umpteenth time. They could have at least battled it out or something, but then again, win or lose, God would have bitched about it for all eternity and who has patience for that?
In the end, this silly story got too big for its own good and enough is enough, I guess. Christians love them some Jesus which is nice and all, but can at least atheists stop giving the guy so much attention? Saramago construye su idea del sarzmago Bad theology and crooked philosophy. El argumento es agradable e interesante. Se abren las posibilidades de ver a Jesus como un verdadero ser humano entre las vicisitudes y las virtudes.
El Evangelio según Jesucristo by José Saramago (2 star ratings)
I think this is a well written book. The story had good pace, the characters were being well developed, but I found myself getting annoyed every time I jessucristo it up. I can’t really put my finger on why. There are just too many other books out there to read, to spend any more time on something I’m not enjoying.
I know that everybody loves Saramago. I do not know about the other titles, but I feel very mixed about this book. It re-envisions the story of Jesus in a way that attempts to reconcile discrepancies between the old and new testament, so it crafts God and Satan into very different characters than those imagined by the Abrahamic religions.

The story explores some deep things, like hypocrisy and guilt. These elements are well done. It’s definitely creative and smart.
