excellent air and beautiful mountains The snobbish character becomes humanized and feels much happier after this trade of make belief for real, down to hearth comfort and solace.Maria Carmo What an enjoyable and fun read This novel, as the title bears, makes a comparison to living in the big city with the rural life in the hills of Portugal It starts off with a bias The main character refers to

rural life in the hills of Portugal It starts off with a bias The main character refers to Paris as, ah civilization and when speaking of Portugal, oh the horror Gui es Yep, a tale of two

made up of the rich, culture, the opera and technology He has every new gadget available, from the all new telephone to carbonated water can t trust the tap water Published in 1901, the story is set in the late 1800s Early in the book while in Paris a visit is made to the Basilica Sacre Couer still under construction and later there is mention of the new Eiffel Tower 1889 Although the Prince

poking fun at society A very enjoyable read and a good laugh This novel is a masterpiece and the translation is outstanding Its premise the conflict between Nature and Civilization today we would say technology could have easily turned it into a schematic or dogmatic book Instead, this is a captivating novel written in a sophisticated style And for those fascinated with technology but not necessarily enslaved by it , a very useful read. Costa did a terrific job translating I believe she s translated other Eca de Queiros works, too I love the theme contrasting the City and Nature One can easily inject oneself into various roles of the personages the characters are aloof, but nothing surreal He writes in the late 1800s, which makes the novelreal because of the connection to Nature which many people still had, even within Paris and the rest of Western Europe Eca de Queiros quickly became one of my favorite authors. No doubt my favorite Jos Maria de E a de Queir s book I am a big fan of all his books, but this autobiography is the best Completely different in style and in content Look for the english version in The City and the Mountains New Directions Paperbook No doubt my favorite Jos Maria de E a de Queir s book I am a big fan of all his books, but this autobiography is the best Completely different in style and in content Look for the english version in The City and the Mountains New Directions Paperbook I honestly don t think I would have liked this even if I was reading it because I wanted to.
