Guide Books Regis St Louis: Brazil (Lonely Planet) ⭐⭐⭐
Petra Schaeber: Marco Polo Brasilien This book was published only last year, yet there are many misinformation. Annoying. ⭐⭐
Websites Brazil is a very internet-oriented country and you find a website for everything - sometimes completely pointless just for the sake of it. However, I linked to all the useful sites from my posts and from this list.
Fiction Jorge Amado Every book by Jorge Amado is a treasure - a colorful, emotional, wild journey to the Brazilian heart and soul. My favorite one is "Tieta do Agreste", which was made into a movie in 1996 (then called Tieta do Brasil) as well as into a series (called Tieta). Since his stories are so outrageous, no wonder most of them were made into movies - what better script can you get?! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
José Mauro de Vasconcelos Here, too: Every book I read by Vasconcelos was at least good, mostly great. A wild story set in the Brazilian jungle is "Arara Vermelha" (also made into a movie), but my favorite is "O Meu Pé de Laranja Lima" (in English "My sweet orange tree" - and this, too, was made into a movie) - after reading this heartbreaking story, I saw the protagonist (who actually is the poet himself) in each and every one of the poor kids from Rio's favelas. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Paulo Lins: City of God Made into a fantastic, award winning movie, this book by Paulo Lins is a powerful report from on of Rio's most notorious favelas. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Movies City of God Certainly not the 'I make the popcorn'-kind of a movie, I was actually gasping from time to time, but in my opinion a must-see film when staying in Rio; a merciless glance on what's going on behind closed (tourist-)curtains. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
City of God - Ten Years Later Yeah, well, once the amateur actors coming from the very favela Cidade do Deus grow on you, you might wanna know what became of them ten years after the unexpected success of their movie. ⭐⭐⭐
