    Generally when I write a review I do it straight off and don't edit much I start off with the idea of what I want to say about the book and it flows from there But not this time I also don't want to review the books but just give my reactions to them These are books that will be easily spoiled if you know too much about them before you read themFirstly it was by accident I read Death with Interruptions first and then this one That was fortuitious as the other way round would have spoiled the 'joke' of Death's filing cabinet The two books not only hang together fit like pieces of a jigsaw they are immensely revealing of Saramago's preoccupations One book was not enough for him to work out either the bureaucracy of death or unhealthy and insane obsessions with it or of it come to that Sheer genius But not 100% enjoyable I've just read the first few pages of reviews and to be honest none of them saw in the book what I did There were an awful lot of reviews in Arabic I could't read though The reviews that concentrate on story the plot I think miss out on Saramago generally You don't win the Nobel Prize for literature when you have such an annoying writing style if you just stick to fairly mundane stories It's what is behind the story that is the genius what you dimly perceive and is illuminated as the novel progresses and you see the workings of the utterly original author's mind And if you read the books in the order I did you will be stunned at his genius and hope that some day someone makes a film of these books They are perfectly visual anywayThen again all those reviewers might say I've just completely missed the point myself It happens But this time I think they're wrong Rewritten July 16th 2016

    Registered RedemptionMost of Saramago's themes are found here death the community of the living and the dead the beautiful uncertainty and fluidity of language the ultimately indecipherable complexity of human communication identity the search for meaning Saramago would probably have reacted harshly to the suggestion that he had created perhaps 'outlined' is a better verb but then again perhaps there is no adeuate word at all a sort of religion without a deity the core of which is a humble irony laced with wit and grace Then again perhaps he wouldn't object too forcefully; there are worse religious beliefs Saramago’s point is after all to redeem through a kind of communal registration and remembrance the existence of every one of the uniue human species that has become extinct For as Auinas taught so elouently each human being is indeed a distinct species and deserves recognition as such It deserves its proper nameProust had a similar theme in the third volume of his Lost Time It would be interesting to know if Saramago was influenced by him in All the Names See Or then again who knows it could have been the Mormons I’m open about it

    I never thought a novel about a lonely and duller than dull file clerk could turn out to be so readable but that's exactly how I found this it was difficult to find a reasonable place to stop of which I simply had to as it's a bit too long to gulp down in one go although for those who don't get fidgety cramps don't have much of an appetite and with plenty of time on their hands it may work out beneficial In fact this is the very book the protagonist of All the Names would likely read in one go sat up in bed with a cup of weak coffee and an unfulfilling sandwich as he doesn't exactly have a busy schedule away from work that is until an unknown woman enters his life no he enters hers only without her knowing itWith a deceptively simple prose that uses ironic comments that intersperse within the story of an obsessional uest and with omitted inverted commas uestion marks exclamation marks and the like Saramago's narrative runs as smooth as silk as we follow the slightly eccentric slightly mad he talks to his ceiling clerk Senhor José of the Central Registry who enters into a metaphysical labyrinth of names names and names tons and tons of them He eats sleeps and breathes them day to day But out of hours he takes on the task to uell boredom most likely of tracking down a random female from a random card located within the Central Registry His nocturnal activities within the Central Registry are made that little bit easier seeing as he lives in an adjoining room to the main building Within the first few pages Saramago establishes a tension that sings and rises producing engaging revelations that culminates when the final paragraphs twists expectations once again The title simply refers to the miles of archival records among which the protagonist toils at the Registry of Births Marriages and Deaths in an unnamed small city whose inhabitants still live by ancient and tight rules and regulations It's the sort of system that East Germany would have been proud of The registry is uixotically disorganized in places the further you delve into the abyss so that the files of those most recently deceased are buried under miles of paper at the furthest remove of the massive building that seems to go on forever Senhor José collects clippings about famous people and surreptitiously copies their birth certificates purloining them from the registry at night and returning them stealthily when suddenly and it is literally suddenly he is stricken by a need to learn about an unknown woman's life There's no special reason for this pursuit which becomes an elaborate and increasingly surreal catalogue of misdeeds and lies but consumed by an overriding passion to find her and taking and risks along the way he is forced to become practical clever and brave in ways he never thought possibleSaramago relates the novels events in a finely honed and precise way pervaded with irony but also playfully mocking with humour Alternately farcical macabre surreal and tragic but also chilly in a kafkaesue way his narrative depicts the loneliness of individual lives and the universal need for human connection even as it illuminates the fine line between those of the living and those of the dead Starting off slowly the pacing accelerates eventually and José's clandestine mission turns into an adventure you simply hope in the end pays off as he is the kind of character that appeals in a humble and hapless but all so real way he warms the soul the longer his escapades continue Speaking of soul Saramago clearly had it in abundance Not entirely positive about it's ending though so a minor smudge there but that aside All the Names was a top notch piece of fiction

    What at first appears to be a simple story about a humdrum civil servant's odd fascination with an unknown woman uickly becomes a stunning exploration of loneliness bureaucratic absurdity and the purpose of a meaningful life This is the first novel I've read by Nobel winner Saramago but it won't be the last Part mystery part existential cry from the ether ALL THE NAMES takes on a life of its own as we follow the protagonist José a lowly clerk in the Central Registry while he searches for a woman he knows nothing about than her name and date of birth Throughout the story we are presented with wonderfully amusing anecdotes of satire concerning the operations of the day to day government Particularly amusing at least to me are the scenes taking place in the city's municipal graveyard describing its evolution over the centuries as well as its relation to and competition with the Central RegistryThis book was suggested to me by someone who had read my novel TITLE 13 and mentioned that they both shared a similar outlook especially in terms of satirizing the lowly position of clerks within a government Of course Saramago is a master of the form and I wouldn't dare to compare my own work with his but it was uite a treat to find a similar subject as my own handled with such skill The author's use of long drawn out sentences and intricately detailed passages truly heightens the level of satire and parody and I am uite curious to know if this is the standard style of Saramago or if it was just a techniue employed for use in this novel Either way ALL THE NAMES is not a book I will soon forget and a wonderful introduction into this internationally celebrated writer's work

    Forward I'm sorry José You didn't need to give up the will to live just because I didn't like your writing style Lots of people did like you More people liked you than like me Really You shouldn't have cared so much about what I thought Now I feel like an asshole for killing you Fine I guess I can live with that but it was a real douche bag move dying the week I write a bad review about you just to add to my excessive guilt complexes You know what I'm sorry that your dead and all but fuck you this was a low shot Saramago Jeez Review When you've won the Nobel Prize for Literature you are above the criticisms of some schmuck who works for a corporate bookstore and writes reviews for books on the internet You also get a validation of sorts for any and all of your earlier little pretensions that Do you really think you are the type of person who can call someone else's writing style pretentious Well yes I do But how can you Well one can say that writing dialog in this style is pretty fucking pretentious One could but one can also be a philistine do you not realize that this is decentering the text making Yes I get it it's making me pay attention to the text in a manner that I'm not used to doing thus making me realize that I am reading a book and am in fact engaged in a text as opposed to getting lost in the text and possibly thinking that the text is a surrogate for reality I wasn't going to say that No I'm sure you weren't there are probably a slew of other reasons why one can write this way but seriously it's so reeking of High Modernism silly gobbledygook that in 1998 it might work as a parody but there is never the sign that this is supposed to be a parody instead it just feels forced contrived like Yawn where is your Nobel Prize for Literature Good uestion since Nobel Prizes are given out for good intentions without action these days I'm making it my intention to write the greatest fucking body of work that anyone has ever fucking seen smelled or read and it will be so awesome and appeal to the dumbest dumbass and the most head up their ass snob and everyone in between So now send me my checkPleaseSaramago should be smacked around with the pretentious stick His prose style is so heavy handed and derivative in it's originality that it turned me off of the book after only a handful of pages The book could have been pretty fucking awesome It's Borgesian in it's paradoxical portrait of archives read Library of Babel esue without hexagons; and the atmosphere and setting of the novel is Kafkaian as opposed to Kafkaesue which is a nonsensical and overused phrase that has lost all meaning just rest assured that Kafkaian is legitimate in the same manner that Orwell esue is now the only acceptable manner for one to speak of doublespeak type situations but only in an appropriate manner and may not be used for any kind of paranoid conspiracy Big Brother bullshit if you want to say something about that the proper phrase is the government is watching me there is no Big Brother until such time that a cult of personality figure is in fact watching you then it will be fine to use the term Orwell esue to talk about the situation you find yourself in One I would think that a book that mixes the two great tastes of Borges and Kafka could do no wrong but how wrong I one would be Maybe if the writing style hadn't been so heavy handed and Kafka like aka German in it's dense paragraphs Maybe once one enters into the Borges realm one needs to have a lighter hand on the old pen Maybe this is the kind of story that should have been a story and not a novel and that there are reasons why Borges never wrote a novel Or maybe there is something about the philosophical whimsy of Borges that meshes with the short story parables of Kafka but not with the stifling and asphyxiating world of his novels If you like clunky prose and interesting ideas this book might just tickle you in that special spot If not then there are probably many finer books to read in the short time we have to spend reading on this mortal coil

  7. Quo Quo says:

    In Jose Saramago's All the Names we encounter a character named Senhor Jose age 50 who seems to be suffering from something akin to existential angst After many years of service in the records department he is still a low level clerk rather than a senior clerk occupying the bottom rung in the hierarchy at the Central Registry with the Registrar the grand master of the governmental bureau that lists births marriages deaths in an exceedingly methodical manner with the cards of the still living distinctly separate from the cards of the dead a system unchanged for centuries with its own semi mythological language all housed within a dungeon like building There is something rather Kafkaesue about Jose's plight a sense that others are in charge of his every move excepting when he resides in his very small house the last of its kind attached to the Central Registry but with a direct entrance by a door that he is not officially permitted to use While at home Jose collects clippings data on the lives of famous people he has selected with the data obsessively recorded on file cards In fact everything about Jose's regimented life seems obsessive until one evening having snuck into the Central Registry via his private entryway while in search of documentation for those on his collection of notecards he accidentally takes hold of a card from an anonymous woman Jose gradually takes a keen interest in locating documenting her life much as he has the lives of the famous people on his notecards It is said that strictly speaking we do not make decisions but rather our decisions make us The search for the mysterious woman becomes a life changing uest it may be the first time that Jose is free to chart the course of his own actions There seems a common theme in Saramago novels of characters cutting loose from their past in search of redefinition There is also a kind of residual spirit of a very discordant fellow Portuguese man named Fernando Pessoa someone whose rambling journal like jottings in his Book of Disuiet seems an enigmatic influence on the author Another novel by Saramago The Year of the Death of Robert Rais borrows the heteronym for one of Pessoa's alternate voices separate identities rather than merely pseudonyms as the name for its main character It is said that not doing things according to the format prescribed by the Central Registry rules is akin to attempting to envision a suare circle and in an odd but very imaginative way that is what the author via the character of Jose has the reader attempt to do perhaps what we presently describe as thinking outside the box Jose intones Its about time I did something absurd in my life In fact Jose strives to redefine himself The fact that psychological time is not the same as mathematical time was something that Senhor Jose had learned in exactly the same way as over a lifetime he had acuired other types of useful knowledge drawing first of all of course on his own experiences despite never having risen higher than the post of clerk he does not merely follow where others go but drawing too on the formative influence of a few books magazines of a scientific nature in which one can put one's trust or faith depending on the feeling of the moment and also why not a number of popular works of fiction of an introspective kind which also tackled the subject though employing different methods with an added dash of imaginationThroughout All the Names there is a strange blending of voices with an occasional humorous authorial comment parenthetically included a conglomeration of Jose seeming to speak aloud to himself then responding with his own inner voice but also blending in the voices of people he encounters either at the Central Registry or en route to learning about the woman he seems compelled to find or at least to document for the data card he has unwittingly captured states only that she is 36 years old divorced Beyond that there is virtually no punctuation what occurs is uite non standard much like overhearing a mix of voices that seem to blend together but which in time takes on a rhythm of its own for the reader The uest for the woman whose name is affixed to the Central Registry card causes Jose to break in to a school she once attended where she later taught secretly interview a few who knew the woman in the guise of official registry work in time visit the General Cemetery where the entry building architecture seems to resemble that of the Central Registry while undertaking so to speak his search for her missing spirit There is even a curious shepherd who informs Jose that there is no real pattern to the layout of the graves or the names on them something that completely contradicts the inflexible design of the Central Registry The Registrar is a complex figure but one who in my own interpretation of the Saramago novel eventually finds Jose's uixotic uest which he seems to have known about for some time one that may have altered his own masterful rigidity It is the Registrar who seems to give an unstated seal of approval to Jose's curious pattern of misbehavior uite out of keeping with his normal role as a sort of papal guardian of everything deemed sacred at the Central Registry Admittedly All the Names Saramago's other works as well may not have a wide appeal but I enjoyed this imaginative novel very much seeing it as a look at life from a different angle perhaps one that attempts to separate the living from the living dead in much the same way that the Central Registry does with the living the dead but in a far rigid manner

    simply gorgeous a story of timidity and how a tiny seed of imagination and curiosity can transform a person and his lifei adore this one because there's no love interest and because of saramago's unbelievable ability to effortlessly pop breathtaking statements about humanity at the ends of long paragraphs they seem like afterthoughts because of the way they're placed and articulated but if everyone had a single thought like these in his or her lifetime the world would be just fine

    This one was odd Hardly a hero hardly a story blandBut Saramago wrote it so it was fun to read really“All the lonely people where do they all come fromAll the lonely people where do they all belong?”

    ‘All names’ in a sort of metaphorical sense is about to know how to live and know how to die Also is about to know how to take life and death seriously or non seriously? And by the way what does it mean seriousness? Difficult uestions But according to mystic masters everything is crystal clear and simple to rule seriousness is a sick way of looking at existence A human being of perfection which should be there by birth itself will love to live and will love to die Hisher life will be a dance and hisher death will be a song and there will be no distinction between life and death Goodness Sounds poetically beautiful if this is indeed the ultimate experience of being José Saramago seems to know experiencing wise much than the words tell He means to say that our search –whatever is that aimed at is for the immeasurable while the measurable can be left to the scientists I love to laugh who doesn’t actually and I did laugh almost continually reading this book in spite the fact that this book discusses very serious things As it turns out it is good to make one first serious then laughter comes easily and it gives a great relaxation I liked a lot señor José for the sake of accuracy I mean precisely the main personage in this novel age 52 – in his full portrait of commonness weaknesses and sudden leaps of unthinkable courage and even better his boss – unfortunately unnamed not that it mattered greatly or damaged my overall perception of him but still a very pregnant character within the book I wish I had a boss like him I have always worked in better cooperation with men bosses vs female bosses Guess it’s again the mystery and harmony of nature in place So this book is saying that If you love life too much and you don’t want to see the fact of deaththen think again death is there hanging around like a shadow But how to see both together as one piece? Seeing them together without any choice without any prejudice will help transcend them? Are we free are we liberated? Logic says that euilibrium is when you don’t choose when you see the fact as it is Life isshould not be seen or treated as an eitheror uestion there is nothing to choose Apparently it is all together But one cannot help getting identified with a part of life How else? Imprisonment or not we like it And we continue to live life as such despite all our misery slavery conflict against reality Of course no one won against reality It is impossible As it looks one can win only with reality never against it And we are all losers; we have been fighting We choose life normally and generally But we take life out of its basic context – death – and we say ‘This is me I am life’ How to manage death then? – it is there it is happening every moment and it is going to take us unawares one day One should be remain a witness Unidentified one is free Identified one is encaged We feel that every dayJiddu Krishnamurti for his whole life continued to say that when the observer becomes the observed know that you have arrived Before that there are thousands of things in the way The body gives its own experiences and the fragrance is intoxicating The mind gives you great spaces unlimited infinite But remember the fundamental maxim that still the home has not come Enjoy the journey and enjoy all the scenes that come on the journey but don't stop anywhere unless your very subjectivity becomes its own object When the observer is the observed when the knower is the known when the seer is the seen the home has arrived That’s when you know you’re one with the stars and the trees and the sky and the ocean You’re no longer separate It just happens – many times misery is there many times happiness is there Many times we succeed many times we fail Many times we are depressed and many times we feel very high A great duality eventually But then again we are aren’t we? beyond all these dual pairs of things Life and death is a pair; mind and body is a pair; the world and nirvana is a pair All are dual pairs Death and life was there before I was born and it will be there when I am gone The world appears in one just like a reflection appears in a mirror We have become attached to life and think it is very valuable That’s uite normal Still señor José believes that this life carries no sense whatever Apparently he didn’t become attached to life and doesn’t think of death as the enemy the robber He knows death is coming and it will rob one of all the precious stones that one has carried all along He seems to see ahead through a very hard to digest conclusion if you see the point death is a friend; in fact a far greater friend than life itself I am not sure I am mentally prepared for such an output In life we get attached yes we collect whatever yes Death however takes all our attachments away it unburdens one Dying in the body – that is a natural thing Death happens to the body The mirror – as a witnessing never dies The traveler continues It depends on our own interpretation – how you look at things how you penetrate a certain experience how deep you go into itDeath brings a great lesson far greater than life And death brings a very intense possibility to understand because life is spread long range – death comes in a very potential way in a very short time In a single moment it shakes you If one is not alert it will miss that moment as it is very tiny If one is alert then that very moment becomes a door into the great divine So señor José eventually resumes all this paradox once you are not attached to death once you are not afraid of death death becomes a game a play Well not just that I am fully present at work today as last day of 2019 but I am pretty sure I am not yet ready to play this game
