The Elephant’s Journey

Really enjoyed reading this book by Jose Saramago, although it was hard to follow at times with very minimal punctuation, I guess to preserve the translation by Margaret Jull Costa. Without quotation marks it took a bit extra to work out who the speakers were.
The comedic touches breaking the 4th wall were perfectly done. The story unfolded very fast I felt, possibly due to the way it flowed, but it didn’t degrade the adventure.

Highly recommend reading this.
