Death at Intervals

I’ve just finished Death At Intervalsby Jose Saramago. I’ve liked previous things I’ve read by Saramago, particularly Blindness and Seeing. I didn’t appreciate this one quite as much. Saramago explores a fascinating set of ideas about death; but there’s perhaps less of a sense of drive or urgency, and he is not a writer who’s interested in being hurried.

Worth a look if you like his other work, perhaps – but if you’re coming to it for the first time, I’d start with Seeing or Blindness, which I found much more powerful.
