Gilberto Melo rated it liked it Feb 09, The main character is somehow inexplicably a genius who speaks esganadsa language and is a crack shot with every gunan This book is supposed to be funny, but it just reads like a Looney Tunes cartoon. The writing is fine and I actually liked the idea, as each new leader or celebrity had me scurrying to Wiki their biographies.

This book is esanadas to be historical, but it reads like the author Googled a few famous names from the time period and randomly inserted them into various chapters for little to no reason. As he ages, we get to meet Mata Hari, Al Capone, Franklin Roosevelt and others, as he either befriends them or lines them up for murder. Tiago Fragoso rated it liked it Jul 07, D rated it liked it May 26, And did I mention he has essganadas fingers on each hand?

Henrique Rojas rated it really liked it Jan 03, Lists with This Book. I have a weakness for picaresque novels, and so picked up this one about a Serbo-Brazillian anarchist assassin with great anticipation. Like Zelig or Forest Gump, take your pickhe moves across continents and in and out of the fringes of history, a part of major events, but always just out of the frame, or slightly out of focus quite literally — the book is heavily illustrated with period photos.


He stumbles through the 20th Century, all the while trying to do his best to assassinate some of the leaders of the time.

Fredi Bieging rated it liked it Apr 30, As it goes on there’s also hints of a Panglossian figure sadly stuck on a dream that’s never going to come true and giving up everything good in life for it, as well as a subtle commentary on esgxnadas power of the unremembered and nameless to impact history.

This took me nearly a month.
