its people, written metaphorically and expressing ideologies akin to those you d expect to find in This book may not deliver what you initially envision, with the cover title, The Tragedy of Fidel Castro, suggesting a political tale based on the historical facts of controversial Cuban Prime Minister Castro However, I guarantee it delivers so muchIn fact, rather than a historical script, this clever works of author Jo o Cerqueira is really a modern reflection on the state of the world and its people, written metaphorically and expressing ideologies akin to those you d expect to find in titles by esteemed authors including Wayne Dyer, Dan Millman and our beloved Paulo Coehlo Before embarking on the story, a preface warns us that all characters and organizations mentioned are entirely fictional For example, Christ has nothing to do with Jesus Christ, the son of God, God does not represent God, creator of the world and men and JFK is someone other than an American president with the same initials However, in the beginning at least, it s difficult to drop your preconceived notions of these characters, particularly when they seem to have the same relationships with each other as we ve know them to have had in the real world i.e the prologue details a conversation between God and His son, Christ, the first chapter introduces JFK, who is indeed referred to as a President Temporarily, this irked me, particularly after coming across some rather ironic statements which I didn t quite know how to take, without some degree of offence, as they seemed to mock the Christian faith For example, he was a beautiful man, dark with blue eyes and an athletic build, and had been depicted in paintings and calendars by artists who had never set eyes on him followed by Having shifted the responsibility that ancient cross onto Christ s shoulders, God, who liked to delegate so as to observe conflicts from a distance, accurately anticipated his boy s decision Now, I m no die hard Christian, but having been Catholic schooled, there was just something unsettling about these statements that I just couldn t quite shake However, I warn you of these in advance,so that to encourage you to take them with a grain of salt and keep reading For as baffling as the author s intentions may initially seem, it soon becomes clear that his motives arethan well intentioned and his insightsthan worth their mere accumulation of words So, to the story It begins with God warning his Son that an imminent war will descend upon Earth, after which he requests that Christ return to Earth What follows is a story which, in almost every paragraph, delivers insights much like those of Michael Moore s in his touching, yet inspiring, documentaries It touches on themes including the people s resistance to the political paradigm from time to time, evil beings read people would appear that weredangerous than any army These supreme threats manifested in the form of men of faith or warriors, both of whom wielded words like weapons, words that would shake the people out of their torpor, breaking the spell a brilliant euphemism for the constant struggle between the elite that rule and the rest of us mere mortals our subconscious versus our conscious minds This partnership naturally gave rise to some conflicts, as the architect read our subconscious mind was prone to soaring flights of fancy which the pragmatic engineer read our conscious or rational mind could not keep up with , detailing the thought process that follows when the rational brain overtakes, often killing off inspirational ideas before they have a chance to become reality and our troubled relationship with fear where, for example Cerqueira details a scene of actors who, before the entrance of the President and Governor, were exceeding themselves as if this was the last show they would ever do and gilded statuettes had been promised them yet after witnessing the appearance of their political leaders, were silenced, as the hubbub drained away with a confused whine, such as might be produced by an out of tune instrument, as if the voices had been sucked back into the actors throats The message here reminded me very much of something I d read of Wayne Dyer s The only thing that will keep you from playing the music you hear and marching to the unique drumbeat you experience within, is fear Well said by both authors, except to an entirely different tune It s one thing to choose a self help book my thing though, understandably, not everyone s cup of tea , where the philosophies are pretty much spelt out for you, and quite another to embark on a story, where those philosophies are intricately yet delicately laid within the script to be stumbled upon like diamonds in the rough.Suffice to say, this novel is VERY cleverly written, and is a gem to read Yes, its themes are religion, capitalism and socialism, but what it really focuses on is human potential And whilst it is written somewhat satirically, making it an enjoyable read from start to finish, its points are anything but This book is a truly inspiring well of wisdom, written in a unique and refreshing way, encouraging you to lap up as much as you can.Jo o Cerqueira is a well known Portuguese author, whose works have only recently been translated into English I expect that his star will continue rising, with his books reflecting themes that arerelevant than ever to today s contemplative modern society

    The author prefaces The Tragedy of Fidel Castro with a disclaimer stating that, All characters and organizations mentioned are entirely fictional Yet, from there we follow the story of JFK, Fidel Castro, Fatima, Christ and God Himself Although the author carefully omits any reference to a particular country or time period, we are aware this is a fictionalized account of the Cuban American crisis that took place during Kennedy s presidency Far from being a typical account of political tensio The author prefaces The Tragedy of Fidel Castro with a disclaimer stating that, All characters and organizations mentioned are entirely fictional Yet, from there we follow the story of JFK, Fidel Castro, Fatima, Christ and God Himself Although the author carefully omits any reference to a particular country or time period, we are aware this is a fictionalized account of the Cuban American crisis that took place during Kennedy s presidency Far from being a typical account of political tensions between two powerful countries, the author has woven an intricate and thought provoking tale of what might have happened had God sent his son back to earth to prevent what would amount to Armageddon as a result of an all out war between the two countries I was happy to discover that the book never leans or favors one country over another Neither one escapes the political pokes by the author As was already mentioned by other reviewers, this book is definitely not for everyone It goes off in several directions and is heavy on the intellectual side However, The Tragedy of Fidel Castro is one of the best books I ve read in a long time It s clever, provocative and comical Light on dialogue, heavy on narration, The Tragedy of Fidel Castro manages to combine religion, politics, philosophy, metaphor and morals all into one fascinating novel At one point, as the crisis escalates and war becomes imminent, the devil pays Fidel a visit A clever exchange between the two ensues When Fidel asks, Don t take this badly, my dear devil, but what if God by chance decides to intervene in the battle as well The devil replies, Just look at the world and tell me who is the strongest The author never has to beat the reader over the head with explanations, the implication is there for us to read and interpret for ourselves.I loved The Tragedy of Fidel Castro If you re looking for a unique novel filled with intelligent satire, political farce and an unconventional interpretation of history I highly recommend this book

    I ve enjoyed this book so far Although I found it difficult to get into, once I got used to the author s style I very much liked the story It takes a bit of magical realism mixed into history to create an alternate version of how things might have been, helping the reader to gain new insight into how things are.I received this book for free from Goodreads First Reads.

It makes it really entertaining to read and in my opinion just adds to the story While I see a lot of close minded folks hating the way that the author used Jesus Christ and God in the story, I found it super creative and really entertaining.The book was originally written in Spanish, and I have had some of my Spanish friends tell me that the Spanish version is even better, since there are some underlying jokes and elements that us native English speakers aren t really keen to pick up on. The book is satire, humor, and history all tied together with religion and politics, and I truly believe that everyone should at least give this book a chance, if nothingthan to give yourself a different look at the world and the way you see things Definitely a great read
