A pleasant which presents in a joyful way human misery as it is, plain and simple. I've never watched the movie, but after reading this book I'm going to. It was such a funny book. I've listened to the audiobook and it was perfect. It was hilarious, but at the same time, it showed the reality of most small towns in the northeast of Brazil.
It's a great fun critique. One of those books that you sit to read and just stop once you have finished. It is also one of those books that you never lose the opportunity of rereading.
And although the plan is to reread some passages, the cycle repeats itself,you sit down to reread to read and you just stop once you read the whole thing all over again. A classic from one of te greatest Brazilian writers of all times.
Everybody should read it. I watched the TV adaptation a lot of times and it's kind of embarrassing I've never read this! The truth is, when I first read a Shakespeare comedy e. And now, reading the book, I am happy to recognize the same pace that enchanted me reading Shakespeare: the fast dialogue leaded by an intelligent character responsible for most of the trouble. Ariano is a master storyteller and it's I watched the TV adaptation a lot of times and it's kind of embarrassing I've never read this!
Ariano is a master storyteller and it's amazing to see the combination of stories of popular domain cordel stories from our local culture represented in the form of a play but with his so particular voice. Nov 25, Marie rated it it was amazing Shelves: play , favorite-books , brazil. If you thought a story about a compulsive liar getting a priest to bury a dog with a Latin formula would be a modernist piece, you couldn't be more mistaken with this one. Suassuna surely knows how to bring humor to get us reflect on the hour of death and the final judgement, as well as our own sinfulness.
It's a very enjoyable and recommendable story, it's surprisingly short, too. Nov 22, Gabriela Jung rated it it was amazing. Suassuna uses different mechanisms of language to make the main character convince others such as the reader himself. Once you get cought in the reading there is no turning back! Suassuna captures the soul of northeastern Brazil. A comical book that remains one of my favorites.
May 14, Anna-Lisa rated it it was amazing. Jun 03, lucyintheskywalker rated it it was amazing. Witty and political. A must-read. View 2 comments. May 01, Beatriz Larissa rated it it was amazing. I lost count how many times I read it and I don't think I'll ever get tired of it. Both of them struggle for daily bread in a telling representation of the life of the poor in North-East Brazil.
He claims for Holy Mary to help him save his soul. She starts to tell his story since the beginning. Holy Mary starts to fight for him begging for Jesus to help. The development of the story and the conversations while in purgatory are the best part of the book.
If you have a chance, read this one. You won't be sorry Mar 01, HericaZFB rated it it was amazing. Great book that shows a good part of brazilian culture. Oct 18, Brenda Mejia rated it it was amazing. I had to read this play as part of my Portuguese course and I have to admit that is one of the best plays I have read in my life.
I like the humor it contains, the context in which it is written and the critic that is trying to establish. I just can't wait to see it on stage someday. View all 4 comments. Apr 02, Platinar rated it liked it. I think this book is good critics to the government and church here in Brazil, so I liked the book for that, but I personally didn't like that it was written in a play, it's not a way that I enjoyed reading, but I still recommend the book if you are a fan of a good ironic book.
I am not a fan of reading plays for I am utterly bored by doing so. That being said, Auto da Compadecida was great fun as I read it while acting out half of the characters alongside my friend. Re-read this for an upcoming exam! A very quick one, and funny too :. Jan 15, naju rated it it was ok. May 13, Francine rated it it was amazing.
On the top 5 favorite. Is so good, so clever, so true to the Nordestino culture. A must read. Jul 06, Daniel rated it did not like it. Not my style. Had to read for class. Readers also enjoyed. About Ariano Suassuna. Ariano Suassuna. He is in the "Movemento Amorial". Four of his plays have been filmed and he is considered one of Brazil's greatest living playwrights.
It is based on a similarly named play by Ariano Suassuna , with elements of some other of Suassuna's plays, The Ghost and the Sow , and Torture of a Heart. There the fate of the main characters is mercifully arbitrated by in a court-room contest between Satan and Jesus, with the Virgin Mary Fernanda Montenegro interceding as the Virgin in keeping with her prayer-book promise. Odd and extravagant as this tacked-on scene is, it conveys the morality of the film better than the antecedent scenes since every character manages to reveal a saving grace as well as demonstrating the unforgiving harshness of the Nordeste environment which they all share and endure in different ways. With becoming modesty he refuses to claim any personal virtues and turns down the Virgin's offer of a purgatorial sentence but accepts instead the compassionate offer of a return to earth to 'sin no more'—but do not expect a pious conversion! It is the bride—now reduced to penury for the first time in her existence—who breaks bread with him while the others philosophise about Jesus's propensity to test the faithful and just in such a way.
