Ribeiro erzählt in diesem Buch anhand von miteinander verwobener Episoden und Familiengeschichten die Geschichte des modernen Brasiliens von den ersten Kolonisationsversuchen durch die Niederländer im 17. Jahrhundert bis zur Militärdiktatur und Demokratisierung im letzten Viertel des 20. Jahrhunderts.

Der vielschichtige Roman ist voll von sozialen Ungleichheiten, Korruption, Grausamkeiten und Kriegen aber auch voll subtilem Witz, Regionalkolorit und Lebensfreude. Er bildet ein buntes und vielfältiges Kaleidoskop des brasilianischen Lebens angereichert mit surrealen Elementen des magischen Realismus.

Leicht zu lesen ist das über 700 Seiten starke Werk aber nicht immer: Ribeiro ordnet die einzelnen Kapitel voll historischer Episoden nicht immer chronologisch an, die Vernetzung der Geschichte offenbart sich dem Leser erst allmählich. Auch Ribeiros Stil mit endlos langen Sätzen ist gewöhnungsbedürftig. Hinzu kommt die Vielzahl an brasilianischen Ausdrücken und Namen, die den Leser verwirren und eine hohe Aufmerksamkeit erfordern.

Em Viva o povo brasileiro, João Ubaldo Ribeiro, além de uma reconstituição histórica admirável, recorre à literatura fantástica, ao naturalismo e ao realismo para recontar pouco mais de três séculos de uma anti-História do Brasil.
