Review by: Ana Pereira on Oct. 16, 2016 : (no rating)
The door on the cover is closed, but if you knock, it will always open.
It's a long journey, ​long book, very detailed. The main character will lead you to a homeless shelter with a christian program to help their "students" to get on their feet again. He also tells how he end up there to the wise and jolly Pastor who was his conselour. They don't always have the same point of view about religion, and it's interesting to read their arguments.
The story unfolds in a slow pace, with lots of dialogues, some parts may be repetitive, even boring; others may be enlightening, funny, sensual, or even poetic. It's a quite a big patchwork.
At the last chapters, the rythm changes, becomes feverish. Short dialogues, less detail, it hurries to the end. And the end... well, it doesn't quite feel like an ending. Maybe it's because there will be a sequel. This one is the second of a series wich I didn't read the first (Weekend In Faro), but after the reading you'll know what weekend the title refers to.
So far, I don't really know how to describe Michael or what kind of truth is he preaching. Truth is subjective, anyway. Not sure if he's a visionary or a lunatic, I guess a little bit of both. One thing I'm sure: I'm not sorry for opening that door and I would like the journey to continue... with a little less detail and repetition than the begining, maybe not so fast as the end, if it's not asking too much!
