'Terra do Pecado' foi o primeiro romance publicado por José Saramago. Saiu em 1947, e durante meio século esquecido e rejeitado, o autor reintegra-o na sua obra, pelas razões que ele próprio explica em um aviso que antecede esta edição.

Review: Terra do Pecado

User Review  - Miguel Pais - Goodreads

Somewhat good, but (being the first published work of the author) not quite mature. If interested, I would recommend potential readers to leave this one to the end of Saramago's literary exploring, given that it escapes the usual dialogue (and general writing) style. Read full review

Review: Terra do Pecado

User Review  - Sonia Gomes - Goodreads

When I read this one, in the original Portuguese, my first thought was how could Saramago ever have got the Nobel Prize !! The book dragged and dragged, there was just nothing to relieve the unending monotony, except for that tiny twist of brillance at the very end. Read full review
