All the Names by Jose Saramago
All the Names

tudidane, March 11, 2007

Jose Saramago presents a character with a dull, boring job who in the face of doing and being all that he is supposed to do, chooses to do something daring for the first time in his life, to find a young lady whose card he chooses out of the thousands he sees every day. The reading is difficult at first because of the lack of quotations and the page long paragraphes, but as the book progresses one is enchanted by the change of mood and the growing complexity of Senhor Jose, his one character ironically who has a name.
