I can read!

By Miguel Diaz 09 Mar 2005

It’s been a long time since I was really into reading for the “fun” of it…probably like early high school…anyway, I’ve been reading All the Names by Jose Saramago, and I must say it’s quite enjoyable. I read his Blindness a couple years ago and was quite impressed…he’s a great example of contemporary literature that doesn’t suck (probably one reason he won the Nobel in ’98)…his style takes a bit of getting used to (he doesn’t believe in quotation marks…or identifying who is speaking…), but it’s incredibly difficult to pull yourself away from one of his stories…
