a gecko rather than an eponymous chameleon Granted there are parallels with people living chameleon like lives but if that s the point why not have a chameleon narrator maybe it s because Geckos are uniue among lizards in their vocalizations according to Wikipedia More likely it s a translation problem albeit a rather prominent one original Portuguese title is O Vendedor de Passados which means something like Seller of the Past Lies are OK because they are common in nature What is camouflage for instance but a lie Back to chameleons rather than geckosCONCLUSIONI think it s somewhat pretentious lacking the profundity it seems to crave the pacing is annoyingly inconsistent slow and apparently aimless most of the time until a frantic end and I never understood the point of the
