This book is awesome. It's originally in Basque, by famous Basque author Bernardo Atxaga (pen name of Joseba Irazu Garmendia). His books have been translated into 30+ languages, this one into about a dozen -- and I don't think English is one of them yet! The Esperanto version was translated with the help of the original author and, other than the Spanish version, is the only version translated directly from the Basque (all the others are translations of translations).

The title, in English, would

Una storia curiosa, soprattutto considerando il suo narratore: una mucca.
Ogni vicenda umana viene traslata attraverso i suoi occhi attenti e le sue riflessioni sulla guerra e sulle attitudini dei "bipedi" ed è certo che le sue osservazioni non sono certo da trascurare.

La saggezza di questa mucca e ancor più la sua ironia rendono interessante e piacevole questa lettura.
Atxaga mostra anche in questa storia la sua capacità creativa e la sua singolare fantasia, entrambe, grazie ad una combinazione m

Recuerdo que este libro molaba bastante. Ahora, de que iba, ni papa.
Vaya memoria de pez, por dios.

Definitivamente, las vaquitas son testigo de la inmundicia de los seres vivos y ellas no son TONTAS!

Si une vache venait à écrire ses mémoire... Qui sait de quoi elles seraient faites ? Un concept étonnant qui a su attirer au fil des pages toute mon attention et mon intérêt. Le récit est souvent décousu... la vache se perd dans ses souvenirs et l'on s'amuse et s'émeut de ces récits abracadabrantesques, sur fond de guerre civile espagnole.

Tiene sus partes divertidas y sus enseñanzas, pero acabé un poco harta de leer "No hay nada más tonto que una vaca tonta". Lo pasé mal en una parte (que no voy a decir por no fastidiar con spoilers).
Tengo curiosidad por otras obras del mismo autor.

Acabei de o ler. Devo confessar... pensei que fosse mais divertido. Mas no fundo, o que seria de esperar de uma vaca que queria ser cavalo ou gato? Até está engraçado e dá uma visão da guerra vivida pelo País Basco.

Una lectura muy recomendable a cualquier edad. Me divertí tanto cuando lo leí, que es uno de los libros que más me gusta regalar. Para mí es lo mejor que ha escrito Atxaga.

Si el propósito era comparar la vida de los seres humanos con vacas, no le encontré la gracia.
