Sobre o livro
With an introduction by Martin Scorsese. 'One of the finest historical novels written by anyone, anywhere ...Flawless' - David Mitchell. Father Rodrigues is an idealistic Portuguese Jesuit priest who, in the 1640s, sets sail for Japan on a determined mission to help the brutally oppressed Japanese Christians and to discover the truth behind unthinkable rumours that his famous teacher Ferreira has renounced his faith. Once faced with the realities of religious persecution Rodrigues himself is forced to make an impossible choice: whether to abandon his flock or his God. Winner of the 1966 Tanizaki Prize, Silence is Shusaku Endo's most highly acclaimed novel and a classic of its genre.
É tão intenso que, no final, resta apenas o silêncio. Como quando vemos algo que nos deixa sem palavras para exprimir o que sentimos.
