Reviews about Cidade De Deus (2):
Deorro
Although the book seems to be the very first draft (and I should have assumed) the last one, when compared with its translations we can note that it is an abridged version where entire sentences are missing. It is a sad thing to write yet if you want the story you must do without the 'real thing' and read a translation (the French and the English ones are perfect!). Try to find another edition if you can (I personally could not as yet).

City of God, is an amazing literary work of art that truly deserves more recognition. The movie, City of God, directed by Fernando Meirelles, is an amazing rush of events that transport you to the gritty slums of Brazil, the favelas. I highly recommend this book.
