Virginia Arthur GOOD? Raw, gross, compelling, and disturbing. Incredible if not mysterious writing.
lnz Not that much, the idea is great but the story : weak
Lori Lammert Excellent book. One of my favorites.
Martin Anything by Jose Saramago is good. He was an exceptional writer.
Mikaela terrifying, gritty, dark, compelling to a point. the book has scenes which are so grotesque, they were impossible to read through. even the ending was not satisfying. I would not recommend to a person who reads for fun.
Øyvind Wallentinsen Struggled through the whole book and will have to read positive reviews when I'm done, because I genuenly cannot understand what's good about it. Will write a review when I'm done, but so far it's one star for me.
Also, an incredibly tough read, and I say that as someone who has read many tough books before.
Silky Arora To say the least, This stays with me( as in my mind) till date!
Hilder Vitor I read the original text in Portuguese and I agree with Elnaz: the idea is nice, but the way the story develops is not that great at the end...
Wendy Goldberg Amazing. Second favorite book of all time. The story of how would you act if you knew no one could see you. Amazing commentary on humanity.
Sara Pacheco It's amazing.
You should definitely read it.

Alyssa An extremely engaging book that has kept me up half the night!
Niloofar the whole idea is great so in my opinion it worth reading but remember that every thing that is mentioned in the book has something behind itself and has a symbolic social/political meaning
but the negative point about the book is the unnecessary and sometimes boring details
Go on read and enjoy IT
Anne Giezl No. the writer is atheist. The title should be. The Gospel According to Jose Saramago
Dario Giardina You have to read it. It's awesome. (:
Zahra Very good book. I really liked that. This is one of my favorites.
Konstantin Weberg Yes, I like this novel! Its good!
Kevin Luy Honestly... Find a friend who read it, and liked it. Take them out to coffee. You'll enjoy the conversation more than reading it. And still enjoy the best parts: the premise, the symbolism, the mulling over what they story means.
Mohamed Ziada amazing book
I never thought someone can write a book and talk about people without any person name
Santiago Rodríguez Gutiérrez Excellent book to understand the ability to govern of people in any condition of disability. One of my favorites.
Gyu Cho Good book, though I would recommend skipping some parts.....(I found out the hard way that there were some gross parts in the book.....)
Benyamin Bidabad I read a translation. I dont know about the main text!
Long sentences
Interesting story
alessandro You should read it, you will not regret!
