This is the simple story of a boy who's mom made a promise to god. Let me have a child that lives, and if it's a boy he'll become a priest. Growing up the boy is immersed in all things Catholic, and even plays at performing mass, all until at one point he realizes his best friend, the girl next door, is in love with him and that the feelings are mutual.
Told in a chapters in pages the novel is something of a Cubist picture told from the perspective of the boy, now a reclusive old man living in a simulacrum of the house he grew up in. It's like super-condensed, Campbell Soup but without any Warhol connotations style Proust, with all of the minutia packed into single words and simple phrases but as affecting as pages of luscious prose.
There was this great line that I marked at the moment when the narrator realized that the girl next door had the same feelings for him that he had for her, maybe it was just because it reminded me of Leonard Cohen lyrics, but I liked it: It only remained to say the new Mass, in a Latin that no one learns, and that is the catholic language of all men.

The narrator is unreliable, and we as readers know how interesting they could be. Saying Bentinho is interesting would be an understatement. Each chapter starts with a cool title. To name a few: Brilliant prose.
For example: There is a chapter called "The opera" where an old Italian tenor explains his theory called "Life is an opera" to Bentinho. This is one my favorite chapters and hence, it gets added to my list.
Though the subject of this book might seem scandalous jealousy,adultery,etc. And I like smart-funny novels. Hence, on my list too! Interesting characters. Jose Dias , a lover of superlatives and a dependent of Bentinho's family Dona Gloria , a god fearing woman and mother of Bentinho Uncle Cosme , who is just Uncle Cosme Escobar , Bentinho's best friend Capitu , a girl with tide-like eyes, with arms better than any woman ever lived or will live, Bentinho's first love and wife, the might-be-might-not-be mother of his child Now you know why Bentinho is unreliable; the dude is confused and confuses the reader too.
But, nonetheless, we as readers turn out to be smarter than him. Bentinho , the narrator and one of the most weird, emotional, funny, vulnerable and memorable protagonists I ever came across 8. The narrator constantly voices out to the reader as "dear reader" or "lovely reader", which I find very amusing. Bentinho is quite good at making his reader feel important. So, read it for Bentinho. Listen to the poor guy, you won't be sorry.

Narrated in the first person, he even teases you every now and then: But this is not a mystery novel. There is no crime to solve. Or maybe there is, but one can't I do not know how to review this novel. Or maybe there is, but one can't be sure. Early on, you'll think this is a love story.
I am convinced that I saw here the most masterful dramatization of first love, ever, in literature or at least the literature I had known, so far. But this isn't a love story as love stories go. I can only imagine, if this book will be chosen for book discussion of any of the groups here in goodreads, there could be disagreements that could lead to war, which can only be settled in peace if Machado de Assis resurrects he died in or if, magically, his characters in this novel come to life and answer our questions.

Dom Casmurro was at first striking to me for its unique setting: Brazil in the midth Century, a place which seems at once familiar and exotic. A place where slavery has not yet been abolished; deeply Catholic, yet modern and European in its sensibilities.
The synopses of this novel tend to focus on the theme of jealousy, but this is not the whole story. For me, the novel is a study of human failings, of our tendency towards self-destruction; the ways in which we are slaves to our nature. There Dom Casmurro was at first striking to me for its unique setting: There is a kind of amorality, or at least a sense of pessimistic resignation that as humans we inevitably impose on ourselves these subtle tragedies, and though we may feel we can and must rise above them, in fact we cannot help but repeat these same mistakes - we are simply drawn to them by our nature.
Along with our failings we have been given an incredible capacity for rationalisation, an ability to re-frame and reconcile ourselves to any personal wrongdoing. As Bentinho looks back on his life, we are never really sure which of his reminiscences are fact, and which are a product of this rationalisation.
But it is the quality of his experience that is salient, rather than the question of truth. Though we cannot confirm it, we suspect that certain pieces of the narrative have been distorted, and we see exemplified in Bentinho that very human trait - the complete inability to sacrifice the ego.
We see what fragile and tragic creatures we are, who are unable to face the fact of who we are in reality; who must instead twist the narratives of our lives so that they can compare tolerably when held up against the ideal self, which we believe ourselves, falsely, to embody.

I wan review in English below Nem sei o que dizer!
I want more! If Machado de Assis' other works have this kind of quality, I think I found myself a new favourite author! View all 16 comments. Dom Casmurro is about a lifelong love affair in which one person betrays the other; the mystery is who has done the betraying. The narrator doubles back on himself, loses track of his thoughts, lies both to us and to himself, and generally mucks everything up in a series of short,sharp chapters with titles like "Let us proceed to the chapter" and "Let us enter the chapter.
And this book is weird and wonderful. Early on, a minor character explains that life is an opera. Not metaphorically. Satan, "a young maestro with a great future," is cast out of the conservatory of heaven after rebelling, but not before stealing a cast-off libretto of God's. He turns it into a full opera and begs God to hear it. At last God relents, but refuses to have it played in heaven; instead, he creates this world as a special stage to hear Satan's composition - which, in the lonely fleshing out, has accidentally lost or distorted some of God's themes.
Certain motifs grow wearisome from repetition. There are obscure passages It's even better in context. The foreword by Elizabeth Hardwick spoils everything.
You should basically always read forewords last. Heather suggested that Tolstoy's novella The Kreutzer Sonata would make a good companion read, so I obediently read that next; she was totally right. They go together perfectly. View all 3 comments.
Jun 01, Oziel Bispo rated it it was amazing. Reler Dom casmurro foi um grande prazer.. Jan 05, K.
My arms and my hands were practically shaking yesterday while I was in the last 50 pages of this book. One of those novels with perfect denouement.
I immediately sent a text message to my brother who gave this 5 stars and our friend who wants to borrow this book so I had to squeeze this in to my already tight queue of to-be-read books telling them how beautiful this book was.
I am glad I forced myself to read this now. I also told them that I was planning to dislike this book to avenge Rober My arms and my hands were practically shaking yesterday while I was in the last 50 pages of this book. I also told them that I was planning to dislike this book to avenge Roberto Bolano's that I rated with 5 stars and excitedly lent it to my brother. He read it and gave it a 1 star.
You see, Dom Casmurro, got 5 stars from him and so when I was about to start this, I thought why not do the same to him? This novel is too brilliantly-written especially the last 50 pages. It would have been a big injustice to Machado de Assis if I used him just to appease my hurt feelings for my idol Roberto Bolano. Anyway, there are other 5-star books in my brother's read folder that I am still to read hahaha. May araw ka rin, kuya!
Why I do I like the last 50 pages? Because I shook in anticipation. The book is told in first person by the BEST unreliable narrator that I've read so far in my almost four years of voracious reading. This book by Machado de Assis truly pushed to the edge the meaning of unreliable narrator for me. Bentinho a.
But, why am I not giving this a full 5 stars? Take note that I am not giving you any hint on what was revealed in those last 50 pages.
That part was the "real deal" in this book and I want you to enjoy it as much as I did.
However, the book's composition for me is like this: You really have to finish the book to appreciate the story. I have a feeling that those who gave this a 1-star rating were those who were not able to bear the arduous and tiresome middle.
For those who don't care about spoilers, here is the breakdown for those pages comprising the middle of the book: The Hurricane came through in early evening with forecasters not using words like tornado or hurricane for fear of panicking residents, resulting in no real warnings issued, At least 3, homes were destroyed during the hurricane, When rescuers arrived the following morning, the town was utterly and completely devastated, Residents decided the best solution was to bury them at sea.
Among the many dead were 10 nuns and 90 children from St Mary's Orphan Asylum, found tied together, It was thought the wall would prevent water from coming into the town.
