    1. بعد قراءات متعددة لساراماجو يبدو ليّ أن أكثر ما يرغب به في رواياته، أن يضعك حين تقرأ له أمام أسوء كوابيسك لكن ميزة الكابوس تكمن في أنك تعلم أنه كذلك بمجرد استيقاظك ثم تتعجب من نفسك كيف كنت تشعر بهذا الخوف وأنت تحلم رغم أنه كابوس خيالي ولا مجال لحدوثه في واقعك الهادئ والرتيب.تب [...]

    2. Quantum Physics of Identity"Only a common sense with the imagination of a poet could have invented the wheel." Not a bad self-referential summary of Saramago's The Double. This book is common sense and imagination applied to human identity and the result is a literary wheel turning round and round in the minds of two apparently identical individuals. Is one merely a copy of the other? Are their fates entangled like quantum particles? Do they become parts of the other simply by knowing of the oth [...]

    3. I should preface this review with a disclaimer that I both love Jose Saramago and magical realism. Adore both, actually. Do not judge my nerdiness. I will loudly and proudly shout to the line behind me at the book store that I cannot wait to read about a magical mountain range. And when the manager has to come over and escort me to the door with my purchases, I'll shout even louder about how much I admire the tale of an old village woman who lived to be 250. And when the manager tells me I canno [...]

    4. Saramago was a unique literary magician, and this is one of his most hauntingly memorable books. This one is a real slow burner, which demands great patience of its reader, but like so many of Saramago's books it is full of dry humour. The first part of the book might even be described as dull, as the long and apparently rambling sentences, conversations without quotes, and occasional asides from his omniscient narrator set up a picture of an unsympathetic and drab antihero, a depressed history [...]

    6. Infuriatinnnnng!Incredibly hard to read! This was a self-inflicted punishment by an insipid reader trying to introduce himself to a compulsively revolting writer!Saramago, who is, like his name suggests, a "mago", or wizard, pretty much singlehandly diminishes the joy that reading brings, making it all one self-assured, self-serving CHORE.Man, I hated this book. The story could be a novella, would be an amazing and silly and cool one at that, but in novel form, well all Saramago does is throw wo [...]

    7. Well, I had planned on starting this review with some choice zingers about Saramago shameless burgling the plot of any or every Murakami novel, wherein some workaday shlub, with a boring job and a boring life and crushingly alone in the world, has a chance-or-not-chance run-in with some inexplicable unnatural or supernatural phenomenon which comes to consume him, only with the Portuguese author applying his trademark run-on sentences and incredibly lengthy paragraphs and narratological excursion [...]

    8. E' il mio primo incontro con Saramago ed è stato amore a prima lettura.Una trama semplice, ma sotto la superficie nasconde dei tesori unici. Un uomo, per caso, mentre guarda un film, scopre di avere un sosia. Non si tratta di una semplice somiglianza, i due uomini sono assolutamente uguali. Da quel momento in poi, la vita di Tertuliano Máximo Afonso - il protagonista - non sarà più la stessa: intraprenderà delle minuziose ricerche per scoprire l'identità del suo duplicato e così, interrog [...]

    9. Daha önceden okuduğum ve çok sevdiğim Jose Saramago kitaplarında ana konu toplum,siyaset,din eleştirileriydi. Yazar bu kitabın merkezine ise insanı oturtuyor ve insan psikolojisi hakkında da yetkinliğini kanıtlıyor. Bilinç akışı, kara mizah ve gerilim son sayfaya kadar bize eşlik ediyor. İkili diyalogların sadece virgülle ayrılması okuyucuyu hep diri tutuyor. Bu yazım şeklinin Saramago'nun okurlarından beklediği bir sorumluluk olduğunu düşünüyorum. Her şeye kafa t [...]

    10. "Yalnız yaşamak, bünyesi alıngan, kırılgan ve esneklikten uzak olan kişiler için cezaların en ağırıdır, fakat ne kadar fena olursa olsun böyle bir durumun insana kriz geçirten ve saç baş yolduran bir dramaya dönüştüğü oldukça nadir görülür. İnsanı şaşırtmayacak denli sık görülen bir durumsa, insanların kendilerini yalnızlığın kılı kırk yaran titizliğine sabırla bırakmalarıdır. ""Yine de insanların en hassas zaaflarını alaycı bir kahkahayla kın [...]

    11. Que. Livro. Jesus amado Em O Homem Duplicado, Saramago conta-nos a história de um professor de história que, ao ver um filme, descobre a existência de um actor que é seu semelhante em tudo, até ao mais pequeno sinal. Do espanto e confusão, ao medo; da curiosidade à obsessão; das escolhas feitas às consequências, somos guiados numa história que questiona a identidade do ser humano: Quem somos nós quando deixamos de ser únicos? Ps: tem um epílogo brutalissimo. Talvez o melhor que li [...]

    12. يعتمد ساراماغو أيضا في روايته الآخر مثلي على نفس الأسلوب الذي سار عليه في أغلب رواياته في حوار متتابع لا تعرف من هو المتحدث ، وجدت هذه الطريقة نوعا ما في بداية القراءة مشتتة لكن في الحقيقة هي تتيح لعقلك التفكير وربما إعادة قراءة الحوار أكثر من مرة وما إن انتبهت لطريقة ساراماغ [...]

    13. I did not really enjoy Saramago's The Double. To begin with, it's a sloppy handling of a theme which has been done over-and-over, and better done at that: Dickin's The Tale of Two Cities, Poe's "William Wilson," Nabokov's Despair and Dostoyevsky's The Double were all better handlings of the doppelgänger theme than this, I felt. This felt kind of like a more sinister "The Parent Trap" or dropped episode of The Twilight Zone (dropped for being too long maybe). It wasn't bad, I won't say that. Eve [...]

    14. Jedan od nezahvalnih trenutaka deljenja zvezdica I ocena romanima jeste nepostojanje bilo kakve referentne tačke. Iako ne bih zalazio duže u samu debatu besmislenosti ocenjivanja umetnosti uopšte, jasno je da bi se baš pri ovoj oceni koplje moglo slomiti na mojim leđima. Kako bih Saramagu, svakako jednom od najvećih pisaca dvadesetog veka da dam bilo šta ispod maksimalne ocene, posebno imajući u vidu da sam drastično lošiji pisac od njega te da će „mnogo vode Dunavom proteći“ pre [...]

    15. I figured out the inevitable ending of this book about halfway through it, but getting to the end was certainly not tedious . The language (lyrically translated by Margaret Costa) is full of unusual but vivid imagery ("e had noticed a kind of embarassed catch in his voice, a disharmony that occasionally distorted his delivery, like the characteristic vibrato produced by a cracked water jar when struck with the knuckles"), and the novel is filled with sophisticated phrases that fit oddly well wit [...]

    17. Saramago'dan okuduğum ikinci kitap ve iki kitabına da hayran kaldım. Tek sorunum yazarın nokta ve virgülden -özellikle virgül- başka noktalama işareti tercih etmiyor oluşu. Üzerine sayfalar süren paragrafları eklediğiniz takdirde yorucu bir okuma oluyor.Değiyor mu? Ona ne şüphe. Ama bu kadar yormasaydı beni demiyor değilim.Yazarın imzası gibi bir şey zaten bu noktalama işaretlerini kullanış tarzı, bu durumda kullanmayışı da diyebiliriz. Bunun belli bir nedeni var mı [...]

    18. Me ha encantado. Historia intrigante e inquietante más que por el hecho en sí de encontrar a alguien idéntico a ti, por las reflexiones desprendidas por Saramago a partir de eso. Destaco las apariciones del sentido común, son geniales.Comentar que la adaptación cinematográfica de esta novela, Enemy, aunque muy libre, mantiene ese tono inquietante con mucho acierto y es una de esas pocas, poquísimas, veces en que me cuesta decir si me ha gustado más el libro o la peli. Recomiendo ambas al [...]

    19. " () talvez a ideia correta seja a de que o futuro é somente um imenso vazio, a de que o futuro não é mais que o tempo de que o eterno presente se alimenta."

    20. O tema do "duplo" - ou "doppelgänger" - é relativamente comum na literatura. Um considerável numero de escritores, alguns dos quais grandes vultos da literatura, já o abordaram antes - Edgar Allen Poe em "William Wilson; Nabokov em "Desespero"; Bram Stoker em "Crooken Sands"; Dostoyevsky em "O Duplo", Dickens em "A Tale Of Two Cities" (que ainda não li), só para citar alguns. Tendo em conta não só a quantidade de vezes que este tema foi abordado mas também por que escritores, pode dizer [...]

    21. "The man who has just come into the shop to rent a video bears on his identity card a most unusual name, a name with a classical flavor that time has staled, neither more nor less than Tertuliano Maximo Afonso. The Maximo and the Afonso, which are in more common usage, he can just about tolerate, depending, of course, on the mood he's in, but the Tertuliano weighs on him like a gravestone and has done, ever since he first realized that the wretched name lent itself to being spoken in an ironic, [...]

    22. Tra i libri di Saramago che ho letto finora è quello che mi è piaciuto di meno, l’ho trovato piatto e a tratti noioso, privo di quelle peculiarità che mi hanno fatto apprezzare Memoriale del convento e soprattutto L’anno della morte di Ricardo Reis, quelle bellissime e profonde riflessioni disseminate tra le righe, quel miscuglio di storia e fantasia, di uomini e fantasmi che creano un’atmosfera magica ed ammaliatrice. In questo romanzo si parla della scoperta dell’esistenza di un sos [...]

    23. A story of a school history teacher, whose archaic name, Tertuliano Máximo Afonso, is a constant prick and an incessant irritant to him, only dealt with timid avoidance and shameful efforts at courage. This passage paints him well ;"Tertuliano Máximo Afonso does not belong to that extraordinary group of people who can smile even when alone, his nature inclines him more to melancholy, to reverie, to an exaggerated awareness of the transience of life, to an incurable perplexity when faced by the [...]

    24. Ho approcciato questo romanzo di Saramago conoscendo assai bene stile e peculiarietà dell'autore. In tutte le sue opere, da un inizio lento e a volte pesante si dipana poi una trama sofisticata, una sintassi unica (lo stile di Saramago rimane assolutamente inconfondibile), un acume intellettuale strepitoso, condito da ironia e analisi di rara profondità.La grandezza di Saramago sta soprattutto nella sua immane capacità di saper tenere il lettore incollato a intere pagine le cui parole fluisco [...]

    25. Quando si parla di Saramago per me è difficile essere razionale, ma questa volta cercherò di trascendere la parte emotiva e concentrarmi su quella razionale per scrivere un commento riguardo questo libro. Il tema del doppio è stato affrontato da molti scrittori: da Dostoevskij in "Il sosia" sino ad arrivare a Freud e si dice che ci siano sette persone simili a noi nel mondo. Il tema del doppio è affrontato anche da Saramago in questo libro molto interessante e inverosimile, sotto certi punti [...]

    26. الترجمة العربية لهذه الرواية العجيبة، صدرت تحت عنوان: الآخر مثلي، وهي ترجمة لا بأس بها.الأمر الوحيد الذي كان مزعجا في الطبعة العربية هو حجم الكتاب وقطعه، الذي صدرت به أغلب إصدارات سلسلة الجوائز في الهيئة المصرية العامة للكتاب.أما فكرة الرواية العجيبة والعظيمة في الوقت نفسه [...]
