    "The atmosphere in a book can be a stories greatest asset. In The Lusíad, a perfect picture is painted of Portugal. You can feel the country as you move from one page to the next. The only problem with this novel is that it has made me want to go to Portugal more than ever before. "

    "This Pulitzer winner has crafted a gorgeous tale of his homeland and thrown in enough of a standalone story that I read the book twice in a month -- something I've never done before with any other book. I would recommend it to anyone, period. I would love to see this made into a movie if not for the fear of something getting lost in the transition to the big screen."

    "I was looking for books set in Portugal, since I haven't read many of those, and someone recommended that I check out 'The Crime of Father Amaro' translated to English. I found it rather flat, and it didn't have the local Portuguese ambiance that I was searching for. Maybe it lost something in translation. "
