“O livro” – Book review

The book “O livro”, by José Luís Peixoto, is an amazing book that can give us a new perspective of the Portuguese emigration to France back in 1960.

This book starts with a remarkable beginning that marks Ilídio, the main character, his mother leaves him when he’s just six, and he stays with Josué, a men that worked in construction. The story continues with a lot of funny moments like the time when Cosme, a friend of Ilídio, is caught naked in a river in Spain by  an civil guard.

The book is very interesting, and every page we read is like a new story, which is very addictive.
