    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 book(s) 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 them.Firstly it was by accident I read Death with Interruptions first and then this one. That was fortuitious, as the other way round would have spoil [...]

    هكذا هي بعض الروايات التي تُدخلك في حالة شك مع نفسك تسيطر بفكرتها على مخيلتك لعدة أيام وتضفي حالة من الهلع الساخر في داخلك،و تضيفك أيضاً إلى قائمة مجهولاتها وأسمائها التي تكتمت الرواية على جميعها سوى السيد " جوزيه " الذي يعمل في دائرة المحفوظات قسم الأحوال الشخصية ، قابعاً بي [...]

    أنت تعرف الاسم الذي أطلقوه عليك، لكنك لا تعرف الاسم الذي هو لكأين يُمكنك أن تجد كل الأسماء؟ كل الأسماء لأولئك الذين وُلدوا منهم والذين سيولدون؟ كل الأسماء لأولئك الأحياء منهم والأموات؟ أيّ موسوعة/كتاب/مجلد سيمكنه استيعاب كل الأسماء هذه مهما بلغت درجة ضخامته؟ لا يمكن لك أن ت [...]


    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, [...]


    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. He 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 adequate word at all) a sort of religion without a deity, the core of which is a humble [...]

    Memory of a book read a few minutes ago. Remnants of images, impressions. Remembering a book called All the Names, by the Portuguese writer José Saramago.Resting then in memory, the smell of old paper breathes Mr José, employee of the National Conservatory of civil status, archive where all the names of the living and the dead are kept. A word, an adjective is needed to read these pages: "Kafkaesque". It seems inevitable that word, as soon as it comes to describe the administration in all its [...]


    simply gorgeous. a story of timidity and how a tiny seed of imagination and curiosity can transform a person and his life.i 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.

    في هذه الرواية يواصل الكاتب رحلة البحث عن الذات كان هناك شبيها في الآخر مثلي وهنا رحلة البحث تأتي من خلال إمرأة مجهولة سقطت بطاقتها بين يدي موظف المحفوظات العامة في سجل الإحصاءات ليبدأ بذلك البحث عن المرأة التي أطلق عليها في الرواية بالمجهولة إمرأة لا يعرف عنها شيئا ولا هي ت [...]

    "You know the name you were given, you do not know the name that you have," reads the epigraph of All the Names, a gorgeously written and captivating allegorical tale of identity penned by the illustrious José Saramago, which concerns the seemingly mundane life of Senhor José, a lowly registry clerk in an unidentified metropolis, whose tedious and impersonal existence suddenly becomes full of intrigue and zeal when he finds himself compelled to, contrary to both bureaucratic regulation and est [...]

    حسناأكثر من أربع ساعات منذ انتهائي من الروايةممسكة بقلمي ومفكرتي في محاولة مني لكتابة مراجعه جديرة بما قرأته الآن وبعد عدة محاولات فاشلة تأكد لي ما توصلت إليه سابقامن أن أعظم الكتب التي نقرأها ونغرم بها هي ما نعجز تحديدا عن وصف ما مررنا به أثناء قراءتها.ولكن كبداية موجزة جدا [...]


    Ποδαρικό της νέας χρονιάς με τον βραβευμένο Σαραμάγκου. Έναν συγγραφέα με ιδιόρρυθμη γραφή που ενδεχομένως δυσκολεύει ή αν θέλετε απωθεί πολλούς αναγνώστες να διαβάσουν τα βιβλία του. Όμως με το δικό του μοναδικό τρόπο σε οδηγεί σε καθημερινούς κόσμους με δυνατές συνταγέ [...]


    All The Names is the third book I have read by Jose Saramago. Blindness and Seeing left strong lasting impressions on me, and I expected this novel to do the same. Except I found myself having to take numerous breaks from this one. While Saramago starts out with an interesting subject on which to base his book,(A clerk at the Central Registry comes across a card for an unknown woman, and becomes obsessed with hunting her down and collecting as much information as he can about her), It would have [...]

    أنا حزين والله، حزين يا ساراماغو وقلبي مكسورجه الزمن اللي مقدرش أكمل رواية ليك عشان مملة، إيه اللي بيحصل في العالم؟ بس متقلقلش، مش زعلان منك ولسه بحبك، على الأقل دلوقتي اتأكدت إنك بني آدم زينا بتغلط وتكتب حاجات عادية ووحشة كمان. حبيبي يا زيزيتو، خد بوسة :*

    Ilustração de Magritte’s Golconde”Todos os Nomes” publicado em 1997 por José Saramago (1922 – 2010) foi o romance que antecedeu a atribuição do Prémio Nobel da Literatura em 1998.Em ”Todos os Nomes” apenas o protagonista tem um nome, o nome próprio, o Sr. José é um auxiliar de escrita que trabalha na Conservatória Geral do Registo Civil, um homem com cerca de cinquenta anos, solitário, sem familiares ou amigos, um funcionário exemplar, dedicado, que nunca falta e que tem [...]

    السرد المتقن، المنحوت، المسبوك؛ حيث كل كلمة في مكانها الصحيح، أن يبدو اللا منطقي منطقيا. أن نرى الإنسان المتناقض كما هو، يتبع جنونه الشخصي دون أن يفهم السبب. عمل عظيم.


    Bir "reading slump"ın tam ortasında bulunmamdan dolayı kitap ne yazık ki elimde bekledikçe bekledi. Tam yarısına kadar her şey güzel gidiyordu, heyecanla okuyordum; ancak yarısından sonra kitaba değil de bana bir şeyler oldu herhalde. O sebeple ne bir türlü bitirebildim ne de kitaptan istediğim tadı alamadım.


    Ler José Saramago é toda uma experiência. Depois de ter adorado Ensaio Sobre a Cegueira e de ter ficado um pouco menos impressionada com As Intermitências da Morte, voltei finalmente ao único escritor português até à data que venceu o Prémio Nobel da Literatura, amado por uns e odiado por outros. E dito isto, um pequeno desabafo: pode não se gostar do estilo particular da sua escrita, mas daí a dizer-se, como li no outro dia, que Saramago não sabia usar vírgulas, vai todo um mundo d [...]

    later addition: i think this is the third time read, though i did not review it the second time. i am reading this concurrently with Jealousy and In the labyrinth by robbe-grillet i really like them both but they are opposite techniques, opposite worlds presented. this is as all sarmago written in long, conversational descriptions and digressions, you are never not aware this is a human story, filtered through very human protagonist, ongoing authorial commentary, irony, comedy, make this an easy [...]


    This book is just beautiful, lyrical and beautiful. I had to read this book for a class. I'm not so sure I would have picked it up on my own, but it was one of those all time amazing reads. The kind of read that I want with every book, but so rarely get. It had resonance. The prose was soft and inviting, even though the story itself revolved so heavily around a bleak, despairing center. You just got wrapped up in the story and the imagery was so spatial that it basically felt like I had walked i [...]

    "O acaso não escolhe, propõe."Um dos mais importantes factores nas narrativas de Saramago é o destino, o que é surpreendente para um ateu céptico como o Nobel português. O destino de Saramago não é o determinismo que manda nas vidas de todos os homens, mas o simples acaso – uma série de coincidências, que guia a vida a um momento de escolha, em que qualquer um pode seguir dois rumos, e é portanto livre.Vemos este acaso, um “fio de Ariadne” ao que orienta alguém ao cruzamento qu [...]


    Έχουν περάσει περίπου 2,5 χρόνια από τότε που διάβασα "Όλα τα ονόματα". Χαζεύοντας την βιβλιοθήκη πριν λίγο η ματιά μου κόλλησε πάνω του, και παρόλο που το εξώφυλλο είναι ασπρόμαυρο μια θαμπή θερμή λάμψη σαν να δραπέτευε από τις σελίδες του, σαν κάτι να λάβαινε θέση στις σελίδ [...]


    كيف ينجح ساراماغو في عرض السخرية في العمل الأدبي؟ بتحويلها إلى مادة للتمجيد، هو يسخر من كل ما يمجدّه الآخرون، ويبدأ بنفسههذا ما انتهيت إليه بعد أن فرغت من قراءة هذه الرواية. على النقيض من العنوان لم يضع ساراماغو اسمًا للشخصيات وإنما اكتفى بذكر صفاتها، وهذا الأسلوب ليس بغريب [...]


    This book will either strike you as brilliant or boring. I'll admit I had some difficulties with it, although I'm more inclined to the brilliant end of the spectrum. My first difficulty was in understanding Senhor Jose's motivation to track down an unknown woman. I understood his impulse towards curiosity, especially given the banality of his job, but to lie, falsify documents, commit crimes and abandon his responsibilities? That seemed harder to fathom when considering this character was middle [...]

    Some nice passages, but otherwise wayyy too slow for how little was happening.Exactly the kind of book your pretentious friend would recommend that you read, because they know that as short as it is, it's still an endurance test, and your pain with it is nothing but proof that they have intellect and endurance beyond yours, which is the point in recommending it, Oh is it, I think so, But isn't it pretty, Sometimes, Don't you think his writing style is cool, Definitely, and I would furthermore ad [...]


    "قد نأتى للحياة ونذهب دون ان نترك خلفنا سوى اسم فى السجل المدنى يذكر الجميع ان فلان مر من هنا ."على الرغم من التقيمات العالية للرواية الا انها ليست بقوة الأعمال الأخرى لساراماجو بل هى من اضعف ماقرأت له يتخللها الكثير من الملل على الرغم من جمال الفكرة وغرابتها إلاأن الحوار المب [...]


    كلُّ الأسماء روايةٌ ليس بها أي اسم سوى اسم الشخصية البطل : دون جوزيه ، لعل الأسم سخرية ساراماغو من نفسه بطريقة أو بأخُرى . لا أدري إن كانت الرواية بحثاً عن الذات أو وصفاً للحياة أو محاولةٌ لإماتةِ الموت ، ما أنا متأكد منه هو أن العمل كان عبارة عن تيه - كما الوجود . كعادةِ ساراماغ [...]

    ساراماغو البديع سؤال الحياة و الموت . سؤال الصدفة . و جواب بيانات الدولة سَفَر طويل مع دون جوزيه و مناجاته للسقف و غرابته التي قد تكون المنطقَ الوحيد , و غواية الصدفة التي تمنح المعنى لحياة مملّة , و ماكينة الدولة التي تختزل حكايات الحياة ليس بأرقام و إنّما بأسماء !و ساراماغو ا [...]

    «Todos os nomes», mais do que uma história que conta a vida do Sr. José (com as respetivas aventuras e desventuras), pode ser visto como um ensaio sobre o absurdo da vida e da morte – o início e o fim – momentos sempre marcados naquela Conservatória do Registo Civil; sendo certo que, no intervalo entre esses dois momentos, vamos vivendo uma inevitabilidade mais ou menos monótona.Mas, de quando em vez, há acasos que pontapeiam com pujança essa monotonia e são os principais responsá [...]


    Non c’è tempo e non c’è spazio, solo un filo d’Arianna che consente di penetrare il labirinto e tornare indietro.In una città sconosciuta si trova la Conservatoria Generale dell'Anagrafe. La prima fila di tavoli, parallela al bancone, è occupata dagli otto scritturali a cui compete ricevere il pubblico. Dietro, c'è la fila di quattro tavoli dove siedono i funzionari. Ancora più arretrati ci sono i due tavoli dei vice e ultimo, isolato, il conservatore, a cui tutti si rivolgono, chiam [...]
