    PDF/EPUB Fado Alexandrino PDF ☆ É 11th century.co É fado kindle, alexandrino kindle, Fado Alexandrino ePUBThe novel is about five Portuguese soldiers returning from the civil war which took place in Angola in the 70’s As they sit around a table all five discuss the madness of war and eventually commit an murder which affects the town they live in as well and works as a sort of wake up callFado Alexandrino displays war in all its cartoon insanity there are passages stuffed with sex violence and corruption crossed with complex emotions and anecdotes The author himself was part of this conflict so I’m sure the novel is autobiographicalMy problem is that I found it dragging Passage upon passage of detail which I found superfluous sure the novel is written in the fado style twelve chapters of 26 verses if i’m not mistaken but I
