No, Saramago is from Portugal. I read the book in Spanish, and is a very good novel. Saramago is a Novel award, so I think you can find the novel in your mother language.

OMG! In 1998, he won the Nobel prize. That year, I started college, and in a subject called "Literary Theory" (such a bore, actually) I had to read one of his novels! It was sooooooooooo dull... I haven't read any other of his books...

Ok, thanks for the informations! I like to read foreign authors' writings. Their words (even if I read it translated) have other kind of taste.. very interesting thing.

I know, that nobody knows this writer because he is hungarian, but he is very, very good, his name is Karinthy, and he could write SO funny novels :D When I'm sad, I just have to read one of his stories, and I will be on the ground because of laughing on his jokes.

" Le souffle des Dieux " by Bernard Werber must be the reference for me although I haven't read it thoroughly.

I like reading "The Chicken Soups"... Okie. That stories is very sensative. Sometimes, I feel to lost believe in human. I read them again, again... Sometimes, I think I can change my mind. I became loving ...
