I was so intrigued by the blurb of this novel from a nobel prize winner author:

an elephant and his handler travel from sixteenth century portugal across Europe as intended wedding gift for an emperor

However I was so confounded by the writing style I backed down. Though there are chapters, there are no paragraphs, nor upper case use for names. The result is page after page of full text blocks with no white space. It felt like weight-lifting.

Maybe one day when I'm feeling more muscular I'll pick this up again.
