Such a brilliant idea, that appeals so much to us Portuguese - the entire Iberian Peninsula breaks loose from Europe and travels to the ocean (the only downside is that Spain comes along with us). It can't quite decide whether to go to Africa or to Brazil, like some many of us in past centuries.

Saramago's must read books are the "Memorial do Convento" ("Baltasar and Blimunda", or "The Memorial" in foreign translations) and "The year of the death of Ricardo Reis". He has some pretty bad ones (such as Blindness"). This is one of the good without being amazingly great. A well told subtle story.
