really liked it

i read this in english, not portuguese, but i couldn't find the english edition i read on the goodreads list. it was translated by margaret jull costa, who translates javier marias' books. (and i really like her translations).
anyway, the first book i read by 'the best portuguese writer' according to saramago. i did really enjoy it but i spent too long on it (got distracted, lost thread, etc.). if you are going to read it (600 pages plus), then harold bloom and i really recommend the costa translation.
