Audiobook release “Os Lusíadas como nunca os ouviu” narrated by António Fonseca 

António Fonseca disse, pela primeira vez, os dez cantos de “Os Lusíadas” em 2012, no âmbito de Guimarães Capital Europeia da Cultura, mas o trabalho de apropriação do texto de Camões para a oralidade começou em 2008. Tem sido um trabalho de esforço físico e mental que António Fonseca descreve quase como uma obsessão diária. Esse trabalho é agora finalmente recompensado com a edição de um audiolivro que António Fonseca apresenta no Café Concerto do Centro Cultural Vila Flor. “Os Lusíadas”, como António José Saraiva afirma, “é um livro para ser entoado por recitadores, e não analisado por gramáticos. Por vezes interessa pouco o que ele diz, e vale só a língua sonora que percorre os vários graus da escala, uma palavra que esplende, um som rouco de queixa ou um gesto teatral que se entrevê. Por vezes, também, é um brinco meio irónico com palavras que se repetem ou opõem, como os poetas sempre gostaram de fazer diante dos seus auditores, que só são perfeitos e cabais quando se embebem como crianças no fluir das palavras e nos seus inesperados efeitos” www.ccvf.pt

In English:

“Os Lusíadas como nunca os ouviu” is an audio book consisting of 10 cantos from Luís de Camões epic poem, “The Lusiads,” performed by António Fonseca.

António Fonseca performed these 10 cantos from The Lusiads for the first time in 2012 as part of Guimarães European Capital of Culture, but his dedication to performing part of Camões` great epic poem goes back 2008. This work has required such physical and mental stamina that António Fonseca describes it as bordering on a daily obsession yet one whose final reward has come in the making of an audio book which the artist will present at the Café Concerto of the Vila Flor Cultural Center. The Lusiads is, as António José Saraiva notes, “a work meant to be recited aloud performance-style and not analyzed by grammarians. At times, it matters less what is being said since the more important aspect is the sound of the language which climbs in scale, a word which shines resplendently, a rough, plaintive sound or a theatrical gesture which is made. There is also the somewhat ironic playing with words that are repeated or in opposition to others, as oral poets are inclined to do before an audience and which are so perfect and natural when they are introduced like children into the flow of speech and to unexpected effect.” www.ccvf.pt

Keep

I stand here
In a confusion of thoughts
I want you to feel
But why my heavy heart?

Beats and it hurts
so I can’t sleep
A last whisper a trust
a try to find me

Next but hard to breathe
the air so you can hear
For  your sake and mine
Please realize I’m real

I’ll wait for you in dark
To save and to keep
hold on to the light
my dream deep

Hopeless (Hopeless, #1)Hopeless by Colleen Hoover

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

4,5*

Oh this was consuming but so amazing! I have nearly read it overnight!
Couldn’t let Sky and Holder down!

The story goes around an extremely difficult subject, I’m not going to tell
but it was perfectly carefully written. It felt real!

The author really knows how to bring characters to life. I felt it too!

I will always LIVE Hopeless!

Losing Hope (Hopeless, #2)

Losing Hope by Colleen Hoover

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I knew Holder was intense!

I don’t think there are many like him around.

I’m not sure I can review this amazing story, words fail me.

Holder is trying to live through Les’s death by writing to her on her note book, we learn a little about her and every emotion, every decision he makes, how he handles every situation is heartbreaking.

His nightmares about Les, about Hope… it was so hard to feel with him.

He was in constant battle about telling or not Sky, all the truth.

There’s this thing about words. They can be so powerful!

I’m glad I read Losing hope, I was worried about reading the same story, I was wrong, I didn’t need to worry! The author can turn the same story in something very special,so thank you for sharing it with us!

When I’m losing Hope , I just look at the Sky!

Maybe Someday (Maybe, #1)Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Heart beat struggle🙂 It’s almost 6 am! Need to sleep first so I can dream this review tomorrow!

Next night review:

Listening to Maybe Someday audio book and Griffin Peterson’s original soundtrack was an experience, the music was perfect, a very important part of the story.
This story is told between the two main characters: Ridge and Sydney.
Can we truly love two people at the same time? If we can, then we probably can be broken twice.

Ridge has a girlfriend, Maggie, that everyone likes, they love and trust each other and that’s all they want.
Ridge loves music and feels music through his heart, something Maggie can’t…

Sydney was betrayed by her boyfriend and her roommate best friend.
She has nowhere to go and she’s alone and this all happened in her birthday! What a day to wake up!

Music brings Ridge and Sydney together, it’s also the way they feel music that makes them fall in love with each other. Something about Ridge, makes the story turn in an whole new level. I couldn’t imagine how this secret was going to be so important and loved how the author explored it into the story! I don’t usually like love triangles, but I was so curious about the story now!

They work on songs together, writing them with words and melodies and wow the songs were so much more than words… it was an escape to what they truly feel without saying.

They fight their emotions, but feelings kept winning! It begins so sweet and innocence… but they know, this between them, can’t happen and it gets so emotional, angst and heartbreaking.

Didn’t want to hurt each other and sure didn’t want to hurt Maggie… Sydney has been through the same path they were heading and that is not something they wanted to do to Maggie too, so they needed to end it.

We hear words about love, friendship, trust, loyalty, longing… words filled with such a passion that actually hurts!

Could this be fixed? Read it and find out!

I live music like the air I breathe, so you know, I stayed up some of my nights, just getting through the lyrics, trying to work the melodies and the ways these words could sound!
I searched for the soundtrack just when I ended the audio book.

The story was going so fast I didn’t wanted to end, so it was really hard to put it down.

Loved all the pranks, learn a few!

  

Grabbed the epilogue bonus!
Maggie deserved to be happy and free!

Enjoy this book! You’ll get hooked immediately!

Ugly LoveUgly Love by Colleen Hoover

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

 

Although it’s a good emotional and rough story, well written, after 50% of the book, I’m afraid I didn’t like the most mercurial important character in the book. Yes I had hope it would be ok, but…

I don’t understand him, so selfish!

You know, you’re not alone Miles! Some people actually lost more than one love by accident or else and they moved on without leaving a wreck behind. Can’t think of one good thing about Miles. He was smarter when he was 18… A man this big and so self center. I understand he’s hurt but exaggerating words and silent, silence but deafening… duh

You’re smart enough to know, your friends worry about you but you can’t care less about them.

Ian was so good to you, even Corbin was taking care of you and most of all, Tate! How could you torture her so and not Rachel, who left you?
Are you aware they had feelings too and maybe they were hurt like you, before they met you?

Everybody hurts… sometimes.

Loved Cap! What an amazing and wise old man! And I got to say that Tate saved a man who doesn’t deserved to be saved at that moment.

All through the book, too much information about the “six years earlier” and I wasn’t impressed. I wanted to know more about the present and the development and interaction between Miles and Tate.

I wanted more about the realization of Miles almost throwing his whole life away! His story was tragic, ok! But there’s no hope, so why live and let others feel pain?

If you loved Maybe Someday, this isn’t enough and doesn’t come close.

I felt the ugliness not in the story, but in the character…

You know the author, then you know it’s another beautiful strong story.

Deep characters, torn but sweet and kind relationships.

I do paint and like this story, painting is used as an escape, a healing process, comfort.

I can’t say more! You have to read it!

Liked a lot.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Review later, I didn’t sleep at all … so curious… so anxious…

Not a novel without “some” angst… I’ll now try a twelve worthy kiss… if don’t know what the hell I’m talking about, you just have to read it or listen to it, like I am.

Later on …

What can you expect from Colleen’s work? Always a Surprise, Admiration… so amazing!

A mix of hope, angst, getting all emotional, not sleeping till you can breath again,
because you want it all to be all right …

Do small things with greater love.
Oh love… is pure,
people forget it, they ruin it.

Feel with your heart!

So I’m not giving much of a review huh…

You have to read it!

I recommend it to everyone!

It Ends with Us

It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

 

Naked truth.
The question I ask the most, but terrified of the answer, the effect it has on me. The how right I was about my instincts.

Sometimes I just walk around the precipice so I don’t get allured to fall. Although I like the invitation…

Most things are so beautiful, but somehow kind of scary, when you push all the buttons. Don’t say I didn’t warn you! But be brave.

It’s how awesome this story is!

Naked truth? Maybe you are not ready for it!

Enjoy!

Author Tarryn Fisher

http://www.tarrynfisher.com/
@tarryn__fisher

I would like to write a novel that every, single person loves, but not even J.K. Rowling could do that. Instead, I try to write stories that pull on people’s emotions. I believe that sadness is the most powerful emotion, and swirled with regret the two become a dominating force. I love villains. Three of my favorites are Mother Gothel, Gaston and the Evil Queen who all suffered from a pretty wicked case of vanity (like me). I like to make these personality types the center of my stories.
I love rain, Coke, Starbucks and sarcasm. I hate bad adjectives and the word “smolder”. If you read my book-I love you. If you hate my book-I still love you, but please don’t be mean to me; I’m half badass, half cry baby.

The Opportunist (Love Me with Lies, #1)The Opportunist by Tarryn Fisher

My rating: 5 of 5 stars,

4,7*

Oh man!
I know I’ve picked this book because I know how different Tarryn’s stories can be!
I was about to know how different and challenging read I would get. I try not to read anything about it before I choose the book.
As a human, I hope for a sweet end, not happy ever after but satisfying and real, mostly because I don’t want to feel that lonely in the dark .

This one almost killed me, seriously!

I’ve finished the book a month ago, only now I have the courage to talk about it.

I have to tell you that I do not cry very often and never for a book. I’ve changed.
We grow up seeking forgiveness or redemption. We have to carry our mistakes, our scars…but with time the pain will fade, but no, not now…not happening!

Shed some tears as part of a release sensation… it feels good now.
Awoke from a nightmare that became only a bad dream.
Only Tarryn’s moments keep me on the edge, make me experience a turmoil of feelings I can’t hide! If the characters are so much alike me, I’m sure I need some kind of therapy after.

Thank God there is a sequel, because I need to know!

Dirty Red (Love Me with Lies, #2)Dirty Red by Tarryn Fisher

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

 

I need to read Caleb’s POV to make some sense, review later…
(Later…)
Ok, I’m ready! No I’m not.
I wasn’t… When I was told, the author really wrote about this awful character named, Leah. Saying her name, tastes nasty.

Yeah that one! Red head, stupid, need to grow up kid with some twisted plans and
plots to hold on to Caleb,the love of her life…okay love of her fairy tale…
Does she knows what love is, by the way? And at what cost…

I was surprise how hollow Caleb’s and Leah’s relationship was. By Olivia’s eyes
in the first book, it was great…she was willing to sacrifice… but for this?
I was a wreck! Very emotional! I didn’t know if I’d love them or if I’d hate them!
I didn’t know whom to believe.

I felt like Caleb for a while, yeah probably needed the amnesia too! Insert dark period here… in real life I was numb.
I was not having my HEA was I?
No! Of course not, I needed to bleed or have a brain meltdown first!

Caled did what he had to do, he made a mess earlier so he had to fix it.  A baby on the way well, got to stand up for the family, right!? He was clever but blind holding that baby… Family… The name Seth, Caleb’s brother saved me from all the pain.

I was praying for a break up, for something!
A glimpse of happiness. So twisted, mostly, between romance reads we hope for the good guys to get back together, right?

This time I wanted chaos.
Devilish smile.
I was thrilled there’s was another book in this series to swallow!

💎💎💎💎💎

Thief (Love Me with Lies, #3)

Thief by Tarryn Fisher

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

 

Gahhhhhh!

This was torture!
Torture to find two people who belong together, in between books, get emotionally and physically distant with so many walls they’ve created for themselves, nowhere near to find each other again…What a complicated maze!

Then… finally!
Hmm… Why am I not sure about this? I was afraid of what I wanted.

My little heart didn’t like surprises at this time…
Broke into little pieces and when it was time to pick them up and glue them back together, it got stolen. Not the HEA I was dreaming about, although I was cautious.

But that’s what amazes me!

No loose ends between the past and back to the present moments. Boy she can write! Tarryn Fisher does it! She’s amazing! Incredible!
She gives you more than you thought it was possible!
And still feels right, perfect… In a twisted kind of way!

I seriously recommend this series!
Can’t wait for what she writes next!

Mud VeinMud Vein by Tarryn Fisher

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

Can’t think right now… I have no words, I’m cold and I don’t want to feel, Senna broke my heart! I’ve finished listening to Mud Vein last night and it hurts.

Couldn’t sleep, I thought I would listening last chapter again to understand a little more, because my reaction was that I wasn’t listening it right! Did I get it wrong?

I kept going into the dark. yes Tarryn you did warn us about it, I’ve feared what words deeply mean. If you’ve been there, than you will know.

I liked the silent, I heard you clearly.

Amazing mind and writing!

This was a deep and very complex journey, learning the hardest way, the dark side of love, the truth in it. I can’t say more about this book. I don’t want to spoil it for you! If you didn’t read it yet than you’ll have to explore it, going in blind.

Everyone will read Mud Vein in a different way, as we do experience things and feelings in a different perspective. The truth in ourselves.

I highly recommend this book, but be prepared, it will punch you in the gut!

BETRAYAL 1One week. No future. No past. No more.

Alexandria Collins has one week to live carefree—no ghosts of her past or pressures of her future haunting her. Reinventing herself as “Charli,” she is knocked off her feet by a sexy, mysterious man who brings her pleasure like she never imagined. With her heart at stake, she forgets that decisions made in the dark of night reappear in the bright light of day.

“Some of my tastes are unique. They aren’t for everyone. I understand that.”

Lennox “Nox” Demetri is wealthy, confident, and decisive—he knows what he wants. From the first time he sees Charli at an exclusive resort, he knows he wants her. Although he is usually the one to make the rules, together they agree on one:

One week. No more.

When betrayal comes from those closest to Alexandria, she must decide how far she is willing to go to survive. Choices are not always easy, especially when they involve the heart, body, and soul. After all, Infidelity is a business, and some rules are meant to be broken.

One year. No future. A past that won’t go away.

Lennox “Nox” Demetri broke his own rule by making a deal. It may not have been directly with the devil, but that doesn’t mean Satan himself isn’t watching. Was it fate that brought Charli into his life and his bed? What will happen when rules are broken and secrets are revealed?

“New rules…my rules.”

Alex “Charli” Collins found pleasure with Nox like she’d never known. That was before she knew his last name. Now that Infidelity is involved and the rules have changed, what will result when real life and fantasy collide?

“Infidelity – it isn’t what you think”

It all began in Del Mar, a chance meeting with a single rule–one week only.

Or did it?

Lennox ‘Nox’ Demetri and Alexandria ‘Charli’ Collins had every intention of following it but rules are made to be broken. In CUNNING they are reunited with Nox setting down new rules for the game and Charli having no choice but to follow them.

Now, once again, the game has changed. Nox and Charli’s hot sensual encounter has grown into something more but it is threatened with secrets and regrets. Is it their love and intense sexual chemistry that’s pushing them together or something darker, a puppetmaster behind the scenes pulling the strings on their love affair?

Shadowy villains lurk around each corner and everyone is suspect as Nox’s and Charli’s pasts collide with the present and threaten to compel them back to their predestined fates.

Can deals brokered in the past be negated by something as pure as love and as steamy as the attraction shared by Nox and Charli? Or was it all a deception—starting with that very first meeting?

Brooke Dumas was a rising star that lost her dreams at Olympics trials with a serious damage knee. She can’t run anymore, broken, she still tries to survive it all searching for another dream, at least something to make her feel better, something to get her back on her feet again! She decides to get her Masters degree in Sports Rehabilitation.

After graduation she’s looking for a job as a rehab specialist, something she’s good at and probably would go on with her life, a little bit happier. Two weeks had past and she’s already tense because she’s got no answers yet, but she needs to find work soon.

Her best friend Melanie wants her to feel better and have some fun, so she drags Brook to an underground fight. She’s not that excited to go but then again it’s a good way, an opportunity to pass out cards and get her name out. She needs this job too much! What she wasn’t expecting at all was, Remington Tate’s tide!

Remington “Riptide” Tate is so hot and sexy, plus he is the best underground fighter they say, our fighter hero, heading to win the championship. Women lose their minds over him and all try to get his attention. But as he lays eyes on Brooke, they feel a deep connection, he has to have her and makes that happen, starting with that stolen kiss.

After that and with Melanie’s help they meet again and she’s ready to feel something, she’s so attracted to him, she’s tempted to have an one-night stand! But Remy hires Brooke instead! What? He asks her to work as his sports rehab specialist, with a three month contract.

She can’t believe it! Perhaps she misunderstood their connection, she’s been “out of order”🙂 for so long… But she accepts it! She can’t think straight in his presence, but he makes no moves towards her, he keeps staring, not a man of many words, apparently he’s only interested in her special stretching abilities after training and after fights. Poor Brooke, just touching him is torture!

Riptide can have all the girls he wants but after meeting Brooke he turns all of them away. She knows he’s attracted to her too but he still doesn’t want to touch her.

Remy is a very complicated man, unpredictable, doesn’t talk much, but when he does… Oh my! So much more interesting and deep!(I loved the way he talked through music!) He has a dark side that keeps him a mystery, he’s afraid Brooke would run away, until she knows who he really is, he just can’t, can’t! She feels it, he has a broken side and he has trouble dealing with.

He has a bipolar disorder, refuses to take medication due to the effect it can have on his training. What effect? (I don’t know much about this, but I’m ok with it!) He has highs, very highs speedy times or he goes a very low depressed state, goes deep black and loses track of time. He can be extremely violent and has been sedated to get through this awful moments. That’s a shame! What effect he’s trying to escape?

As their friendly zone relationship grows, all about kissing and no sex, Brooke believes he wouldn’t hurt her and keeps trying to support him no matter what. She wants him desperately, sex is all she can think of now, every touch is fire and he feels the same, but refuses to go all the way, he will hurt her!

He’s resolved, Brooke needs to know the “real” him first and once he has her completely, he’ll never let her go.

And then BAM Fi-na-lly! Love scenes were great!

Later, much later in the book, Brook sees someone familiar in a dangerous place at a match and she is shocked, but does anything about it for a while… A little predictable that this last twist happened just for Remy to take some action to show all his demons, this leads to Brooke leaving… I thought she was stronger!

This book is written in Brooke’s point of view but we can go into Remy’s head from time to time and I loved every part of it!

Intense writing, best feelings ever!

Enjoy!

Mine (Real, #2)Mine by Katy Evans

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

 

Great book! Good performance in an audio book format. I enjoyed it!

More about Remy is never enough!

I love how Katy Evans describes everything! The way someone touches, someones hurts, someone laughs, different cries.

I enjoyed her writing, I understood her well, sometimes too well. I’ve imagined two Remys, one dark and one light, two different persons mixing together in my head, sometimes blending into the better man!
At the end I could see him clearly and understand.

Mine is the sequel to Real. I liked Real but Mine was hard to listen/read. It’s a continuation of the first book, entertaining yes, with Remington Tate all over the place, but chapter after chapter some of the sex/love scenes were not that important for me anymore…

I had to have a break from the audio book because I only heard and felt Brooke’s perspective… I felt her emotions, trust and jealousy issues. I was going crazy too!🙂

We can’t never take anything for granted… Was Remington aware or he never thought about that? I get it, I do! He wanted her to know the “real” man…She get’s it! But does he?

Brooke was young, beautiful starting a career and every man would love to keep her! Didn’t they try? The men? No one? She could leave him because of misunderstandings, overheard talks, things that were so important to be said, but weren’t out in the open? She could, couldn’t she? She tried so hard for him, left everything for him!
She was so blind, loved him so much! But Remy was so hard to reach! Always quiet, she had to pull it out from him, hurting each other?

I know there’s love, that’s final, OK. But when in love, we share our deepest feelings and thoughts. (I think we should!) We want to breathe one another… Belong, become one! So why we leave things unsaid for the love sake?! Why do we want to spare the other one, who will fight for us no matter what, if we don’t know? Are you saved from pain, who bleeds the most?

The one thing I like more about Brooke this time was the way she handled Remy’s illness.

I don’t want to spoil the fun! You have to read it!

The secondary story or plot was not that interesting for me… at times I just felt: whatever…
The end was predictable, like I said, I understood where this story was going, pretty quick! Don’t think I didn’t like it though.🙂

I liked the fighter blue and black swings and the power and perseverance in him! Refreshing side, a different look on love. I’ll keep it high in my shelf and I can’t wait to listen to the next book: Remy from Sebastian York’s voice!🙂

Remy (Real, #3)

Remy by Katy Evans

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

 

At last!… We can now get deep with Remington Tate’s version of that sweet story that goes back and forth between his past and his currently state. I thought it was going to be deep, but…

I feel a little disappointed that some parts of the story I was so curious about, will never be told.

Remy being “black”, I just hoped he (or the author) could remember more of it… When Brooke left him I wanted to know more about his struggle to stay focus and get her back. The hospital times and the brain seizures he had to endure to get “blue”.

Some of the events were neglected by the author, rushing things to happen…

Other than that, most of the things I already knew…

Rogue (Real, #4)Rogue by Katy Evans

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

 

Good, not awesome like Real. Review later.
(I have a cold and my eyes burn )

3,5*

I got better, so…

I like sex in a story if there’s something important towards the development of the relationship.

First impression of this story, well… I felt that the sex situation was just a little too much.

Greyson was dark but cool, he had his reasons. I like him.

Melanie, was hard for me to connect, she had a collection of one night stands and was acting like crazy!

I felt the sex situation was just a little too much.

Sex on call, Melanie was all in. Finding the right guy doesn’t mean you have to taste them all… only Greyson would stop her? Hmm. First time he hurts her, she runs off to another f… buddy…

The most exciting part happened at the end and I wanted to learn more but it was that short and the ending, well another sex scene… It was supposed to be the best, but I didn’t feel the need for.

Ready for Ripped and hope it’s better.
