There's something quintessentially Portuguese about this novel. It's something about the gentle humor, the deep wisdom, the kind acceptance of human nature. There's also a sense of absurd frivolity, rather like some of Lisbon's fanciful architecture. Somehow the author manages to write with bold childlike innocence and the wisdom of the ages. What's more amazing is that he did so while telling of a true historical event. It left me in tears but also in touch with my inner child.
The Elephant's Journey is fascinating, humorous, and quite enjoyable. I particularly liked the reader's interpretation.
