Baltasar and Blimunda (1998, Harcourt Brace & Co.) 5 stars

Review of 'Baltasar and Blimunda' on 'GoodReads'

5 stars

Immaculate story-telling and a beautiful (but sad) analysis of the best and worst of what people are capable of, told in meandering sentences, sometimes pages long, with intense pacing and editing and a terrific thrust from start to finish, Why is there wealth, How can we treat animals better than human beings, And is it really possible to fly?
