Resenhas

Wonderful, beautiful study of identity and memory, the transitory and elusive nature of both, and how relationships--and the death of those relationships--influence them. Banville uses the surface narrative of a man dealing (or not dealing) with his wife's death to explore deeper philosophical themes.

I'm beginning to conclude that literary prize winners these days are judged on the obscurity and multisyllabic qualities of their vocabulary. This guy knows a lot of words. He can write a beautiful sentence, but then it is followed by many dull paragraphs. I made it through part 1, but part 2 appeared to be exactly the same, and I gave up the plod. When did having an actual story-line go out of fashion, or rather, when is it coming back?

This noir story was completely absorbing like books I read as a kid. Tale of a hard-drinking Irish loner, a pathologist who becomes the sleuth to solve a murder and a mystery, all set in foggy 1950's Dublin. The writing, the setting, the suspense were beautifully crafted.

Banville's writing is as good as anything I have read since Saramago (and his is in translation). A wonderful, imaginative deathhbed romp!
