Is it sarqmago that much better in Portuguese? The women resignedly agree to the terms with little discussion, as well as their men. I’m relieved to be done with this and happy to be moving on to things that probably will interest me more.

It’s everywhere; it’s a constant both inside and outside the quarantine. The Doc’s Wife washed their clothes and shoes.

Throw in a cheap shocking effect by organising an orgy rape. But it doesn’t really compensate for the tedium with wise insights or literary pleasure; ultimately coming across as a book that is bleak to the point of being boring.

Save your time and read a book that’s actually half-good. While I laud Nabokov for one sentence that appears to be a paragraph, that is only because that sentence is composed of so many beautiful parts all punctuated correctly, no less that work together to create an even more beautiful image. Lists with This Book. And adaptive skills are learned skills; an entire population is not going to master orientation and mobility overnight.


I mean, if you accept the premise that these people really are there, really are completely helpless, and can’t escape, the result is inevitable, it’s human nature. The blindness is contagious. But even setting that aside, I had a hard time believing in the universe Saramago created. Saramago, in Blindnessomits almost all punctuation save for the occasional comma, apostrophe, or period. This “blindness” spreads like a virus, and soon everybody has it.

The ending was solid and happy after a whole bunch of depression and poop on the streets.

I think Albert Camus did a much better job of depicting human nature during an epidemic in “The Plague” though I did find that book sarramago as well If you’re looking for Meaning and Allegory and a litany of the Inhumanity of which Humanity is capable, this is the book for you.

I’m clearly not the audience for this book.

But Saramago talks–lectures even–about how society is being transformed, but there’s scant dialogue from our characters. Very bad guards -who shoot you. Written by a totally blind author, this book is written as a sequel to Blindness, and shows I find the way that the blind are represented in this book to be horrible, and believe that if any other class or group of people such hose blacks, asians, muslims, jews, autistics, deafs, etc had been represented the same way blind people were represented, the book would never has been so highly reviewed by so many.

Ignore the blind man with the gun, he can’t actually see you to shoot you!

I kept falling asleep while reading due to large jise. If the first blind man really was the first blind man – then why toss him into an mental institution as a makeshift quarentine? Saramago, I hear, works closely with his translator, so you can’t blame him or xaramago for the brutal and unforgiving diction of this deeply unpleasant novel. To work for me, it would need to be more character led – I still want to know why one of the main characters was unaffected for example, which was never explained.


It takes like half a day for ONE out of 6 to remember enwayo toilets hold water as they are tortured by thirst? Modern society is a vulnerable society.

She can feel the gun in her hand —the gun with which she could kill him and quite possibly stop dozens of women, including herself, from being brutalized. This is an apocalyptic tale. Redeemed by a few searing and tragic images, but not much else to recommend here. No mention is made of any other independent living skills he possesses, quite possibly because the author was unaware that there is more to adaptive skills training than literacy.

Never mind that people caught the blindness months apart. Sadly, though, this style didn’t work for me and only caused me to feel extremely bored. For those who haven’t read it and don’t want to consult Wikipedia, I will summarize: Now, this book is written in an infuriating way that gets old after.
