The journey takes us from Africa in the 1600s through Portugal at the turn of the last century to contemporary North America.
Showcasing Martel's trademark delight in the fundamental stories that unite us, The High Mountains of Portugal unfolds with a dazzling lightness of touch. With its intricately woven layers of meaning and all the pleasures and surprises of a good yarn, it is also a beautiful, tender, clear-eyed and heartfelt exploration of love, suffering, faith and evolution.
By turns funny, tragic and sublime, The High Mountains of Portugal reminds us that it is our ability to weave remarkable stories out of our spiritual and philosophical concerns that makes us - and keeps us - human.

Not my kind of thing
Whilst eloquently descriptive and a clever concept, I found it boring. Hours 'wasted' on multiple descriptions of driving a car..... As the story developed it became a little too far fetched. Last part of the story was the most interesting but I think on balance I wished I'd not persevered to the end.
