    Summary ´ Brazil Author John Updike Brazil Author John UpdiI just finished reading Brazil by Updike I don't like how I feel about it in all honesty I can't sit here and say it wasn't well written I think that the story's pace plot development and overall structure while obviously being a transposed Tristan Isolde was well done Additionally Updike does a decent job of making his elite upper class characters sound remarkably similar

    Summary ´ Brazil Author John Updike Brazil Author John UpdiThis is fantasticThe language is brutal and lush hot and humid You can feel the rain forrest even when the main characters aren't physically thereThe story could be reduced to one of interracial love but it goes so much farther then that The novel spans about twenty or so

    Summary ´ Brazil Author John Updike Brazil Author John UpdiHaving only previously read Updike’s superb ‘Rabbit’ novels this Brazilian set tale of passionate and all consuming love was something of a surprise Taking ‘Tristan and Iseult’ as a jumping off point Updike weaves a love story of social divides magic realism and some truly dreadful sex scenesA poor boy meets a rich girl on a Rio beach and they fall instantly in love Their family tries to separate them circumstance throws all it can against them but they stay together until the endThe opening few chapters are the most difficult to read It’s a tale of young and incredibly passionate love and lust i

    Summary ´ Brazil Author John Updike Brazil Author John UpdiI found the character development of Tristao and Isabel to be a little far fetched At the beginning how is it that Tristao and his brother seem to talk and act in an educated manner discussing communism etc having attained only enough education to read street signs How is it that an upper class Isabel would immediately fall for this slum dog Why was she so immediately accepting of Tristoa's mother in spite of her slovenly life style It didn't add up The development of Tristao's shanty however is excellent For some reason it made me think back when I was 24 and new in uito Ecuador when I was up for any new adventure going back to my Colombian girlfriend's humble home though not on the level of shanty but somewhat close and thinking I am

    Summary ´ Brazil Author John Updike Brazil Author John UpdiSuch a wonderful read I couldn't and didn't want to put it down I cherished each moment I got to pick it up and get lost in it's world I saved this book for my recent vacation to a tropical Caribbean island and it couldn't have been a perfect read for my trip As I sat on a beach the first day and opened the book the first chapter was so fittingly titled The Beach Doesn't get much perfect than thatI have so far read two other books by Updike and I'm very glad I read them first because this one would have spoiled me and left me thinking the others would be as good And while his others were good this one was a beautiful and brilliant escape far richer than S or Marry Me

    Summary ´ Brazil Author John Updike Brazil Author John UpdiThis was a shockingly sensual and beautiful work of fiction If one can get over some of the overtly sexual descriptions and move beyond one is rewarded by a great work of fiction It is a novel that speaks to the reality of the human condition one that though set in Brazil could be encountered anywhere in the world where racial ineuality poverty and violence co exist with the abundance and ease of the privileged Updike lets us imagine what it would be like if that co existence could be easily interchangeable with the mere flick of magic and to the point that we are born into our condition by the mere stroke of luck
