    I didn’t read the book but rely on yr opinion. In Portugal we don’t have High Montains, and no rhynos either. Also we were not only the only country with slavery. I did see the Life of PI, on a plane travel but was to phantastic for my taste.

      oh mom, I love when you comment! well, the book doesn’t say we are the only country with slavery, far from it. It does mention slaves from other countries too. But I didn’t like the high emphasis on it, given that it didn’t contribute to the story, you know?

    You really don’t want me to read this book right?? XD
    I hate when they use brazilian portuguese in things about Portugal. I hate it. Yes it’s portuguese but it’s different. If you’re writing about Portugal use the right portuguese.
    Also, I think chimps are better than us. At least than some of us
