The High Mountains of Portugal
The High Mountains of Portugal, suited for long TSA lines and congested traffic, Yann Martel offers ideas on our search for meaning, the importance of journey, and our relationships with other animals and with the natural world. Structured as three linked stories, the novel offers patient readers finely written prose and a very slow journey from beginning to end. Along the way there are lots of distractions and digressions, and it is in those that key ideas are discovered. Slowing down during the Summer can offer enrichment for many busy people. Consider reading this novel as part of your process of slowing down on your own journey. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The High Mountains of Portugal from amazon.com.
