The narrative does not have the traditional parts of the plot. But it has history and conflict. The city is the protagonist. She is the link between chapters. Very worth the experience.

See 1 question about Eles Eram Muitos Cavalos…. Lists with This Book. I wanted to like this book. It is written by a rising Brazilian author, and I usually enjoy reading the work of new authors from other countries.
But sadly it was all I could do not to quit reading this book in the first few pages. I suppose I am just getting too old to really enjoy new-fangled approaches to novels. This one is written in snippets that are more like poetry than prose, which I guess is fine if that is what romahce enjoy.
Eles Eram Muitos Cavalos by Luiz Ruffato (2 star ratings)
It was not until page 24 that any of the bits began to even look I wanted to like this book. It was not until page 24 that any of the bits began to even look like a short story. Honestly, I just don’t understand the value of writing in run-on sentences, without punctuation or capitalization, and without any real indication of where the voices change. Then there was the content. The book is set in Sao Paulo, and geez oh man does this book make Sao Paulo seem like a terribly depressing, violent, poor, and angry place.
I gave it 2 stars only because I was finally able to finish reading it. I try to reserve 1-star ratings for books I dislike so much that I can’t even finish them.
The lack of structure apparently reflects the impossibility of romanve the complexity of the city, and is an homage to its dynamic and diversity.
The book has been much praised, so perhaps the fault is mine, but essentially I found it unreadable. Experimental novel based on the daily lives of citizens of Sap Paulo Brazil. Too busy and not enough story for me to attach myself to.

The variety of literary techniques is reason enough to read this piece.

Mutta omalla tavallaan mielenkiintoinen teos, joka varmaan iskee tietynlaiseen kirjamakuun. Ei huono, mutta ei minulle. Not for me Got this as a freebie on amazon. Made it 10 pages and quit. Might rimance a story in there amongst the babble, but I wasn’t going to waste my time trying to find out.
