Rated 5 out of 5 by from In my Top 5 of all time favourites! This is a fantastic book. I found the premise to be quite original. Deeply thought provoking on many levels. The writing style is a bit odd and I thought that I would not enjoy the book because of it, but once I got used to it, the story itself is very powerful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant The Stone Raft is good enough to restore ones faith in the power of literature. Jose Saramago seems to have remembered that the basis of any great novel is the story. And this is a great story. One day, the Iberian Peninsula shears off from the European continent and begins to drift across the Atlantic Ocean. A diverse group of Portugese and Spaniards wander across the "island" searching for answers as to why this has occured. What they find are the answers to many important and difficult questions. Fortunately, the "point" of the story never gets in the way of what is a great adventure. Touching, gripping, eye opening and hugely entertaining, this is one of the best novels I have read in years.
