    1. “O Dia em que Matei o Meu Pai” é uma narrativa (como o próprio nome indica) de como foi a acção de matar um pai. A história é contada na primeira pessoa. Um relato impregnado de mensagens, significados e muitas vezes falsas pistas que nos levam por caminhos “estranhos” do pensamento para mais tarde percebermos que é apenas o personagem/autor a “brincar” com o leitor. Uma história magnificamente bem escrita, cujo personagem tem uma caracterização bem sólida que nos leva à [...]

    2. I don't really know what inspired me to pick up this book, but I am glad I did. It is not something I would normally read, and I began it with no recommendations from anyone, nor any clue of the story other than the title. It begins with the murder, recalled by our unreliable protagonist and delves into his issues, his childhood and the reason why he did what he did. We start to sympathise but we also see he is most certainly suffering psychosis. He is talking to someone - and at one point gets [...]

    3. This is an impressively written if somewhat grim tale of a son’s bleak relationship with his father.It’s a relatively short account told in two parts. The first part begins with our protagonist narrating his experiences by addressing the reader to offer philosophical explorations as to why he felt compelled to abruptly end his father’s life. As a result, frequent literary and religious references are woven into the text to support his reasoning.The second part is actually an excerpt of a b [...]

    4. "Já matou o seu pai? Está à espera de quê? Toda a gente tem o dever de matar o próprio pai. Faça como o protagonista do romance de Mário Sabino: livre-se dele com duas pauladas na cabeça. Pelas costas, de preferência. Se matar um pai é fácil, rápido e indolor, muito menos fácil, rápido e indolor é interpretar o gesto. O protagonista anónimo de O dia em que matei o meu pai procura indícios para entender o crime que cometeu."Pela sinopse interessou-me, mas quando o li foi muito me [...]

    5. I won this book in a First Reads draw. There is a great beauty to Mario Sabino's work. He does not talk down to you, in fact he makes you work.He makes you compare your own understanding of reality and the nature of existence to his arguments. He uses existential philosophy and psychotherapeutic thinking to advance these arguments.At first I was simultaneously open-minded and sceptical wondering how much this author really knows about narcissism, self and existence until there it is! When he di [...]

    6. At first, this book made me think I was going to hate it because of the first person "let me tell you about my life" style that kicked it off. However, by about a third of the way in I was pleasantly surprised to discover a whole lot more to the tale. Sure it's about a guy who kills his father - that part isn't too difficult to figure out - but by the end of the story he tells to explain the circumstances of his patricide, I actually ended up with a whole lot of empathy. The saving grace of this [...]

    7. I was lucky enough to win this book as part of the giveaways. It has taken me a while to get around to reading it, but I am so glad I did! It was a really enjoyable book and had I been on holiday I am sure I would have read it in one sitting! I don't want to spoil it by giving too much away but whatever you do DO NOT skip to the last page!!! The list line of this made me gasp out loud and I LOVE it when a book makes you do that!!

    8. Philosophical, an introverted no secrets left untold writer who is not afraid to tell a story. I loved this book for not only the style of writing that directly addresses the reader, "are you still there" but for such clarity in philosophical ideas that are addressed both directly and indirectly. Amazing and brilliant.

    9. It's a good book but not as surprising as I expected. And the end was like the writer tried to make me wonder but it failed. Anyway the writing style is pleasurable and easy to read so I recommend this if you're travelling like I did. 16 hours on a train were just enough to finish it.

    10. I was lucky enough to win a copy via the draw and found this book to be a thought-provoking read, which although somewhat predicable held my attention until its puzzling end.

    11. I read this way too fast, so any subtlety was lost on me. Still I found it viciously entertaining with an intelligent edge.
