    1. When you sit in a coffee shop at the corner of two busy streets and read a book about blindness, you find yourself thinking unfamiliar thoughts, and you believe, when you raise your head to watch the people passing, that you see things differently You notice the soft yellow light of the shop reflecting off the bronze of the hardwood floors You notice among the people coming from the train two girls who intersect that line, spilt, call back, and go their ways, dividing into the two directions of [...]

    2. This book left me speechless which is a rare occurrence Please enjoy the pictures to illustrate the plot while I recover my gift of rambling An unexplained plague of white blindness sweeps the unnamed country Initial attempts to hastily quarantine the blind in an abandoned mental hospital fail to contain the spread What they succeed at is immediately creating the easy us versus them divide between the helpless newly blind and the terrified seeing Before we know, we are immersed in the horrifying [...]

    3. The advantage enjoyed by these blind men was what might be called the illusion of light In fact, it made no difference to them whether it was day or night, the first light of dawn or the evening twilight, the silent hours of early morning or the bustling din of noon, these blind people were for ever surrounded by a resplendent whiteness, like the sun shining through mist For the latter, blindness did not mean being plunged into banal darkness, but living inside a luminous halo We have all experi [...]

    4. Blindness is a great novel by Portuguese writer Jos Saramago that deals with human s individual and collective reactions when in the face of adversarial forces With gorgeous prose, this thought provoking book shows us how our world, ever so concerned and consumed by appearances, would deal with the loss of our most relied upon sense vision When it s every man by himself, when every man is free to do whatever he wants without the impending fear of recognition and judgement, we start to feel I was [...]

    5. Update I said I would never read another Saramago because of his writing style I did though All the Names and Death with Interruptions Both brilliant But I listened to them I wouldn t have appreciated them as much if I d had to struggle through Saramago s idiosyncratic writing style _________________In H.G Wells In the Country of the Blind the only person who can see suffers great discrimination and has to agree to have his eyes removed and become as blind as the rest of the people who over the [...]

    6. I finished this masterpiece last week and I let it to sink in a little bit before reviewing it The power of this book was quite overwhelming at times and I had to stop reading for a few days at a time I do not think there are many books that disturbed me like this one Maybe Never Let Me Go but there the message was much subtle Some say that the structure of the book makes it very hard to read I suppose the voice in my head did quite a good job in reading it as I did not encounter any difficulty [...]

    7. Imagine the most ordinary situation in the world People waiting at a traffic light All of us can see that before our inner eyes, relive thousands of similar situations we have experienced ourselves, without ever giving them a moment of consideration Thus starts Saramago s Blindness But there is a disruption One car is not following the rules all take for granted The car doesn t move when the light switches to green People are annoyed, frustrated, disturbed in their routines, but not worried Some [...]

    9. I don t think we did go blind, I think we are blind, Blind but seeing, Blind people who can see, but do not see Jos Saramago s Blindness can be viewed as an allegory for a world where we see but in fact neglect what is around us It is a human condition, unquestionable a disease that in contemporary time has only agravated blindness is also this, to live in a world where all hope is gone Blindness is than a dystopian novel, it is a philosophical work that makes us wonder about our way of living [...]

    10. Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder What an irony that a book which holds, loss, filth, loot, stomp, cruelty, disorientation, putrefaction, injustice, helplessness, murder, rape, misery, nakedness, abandonment, death and unimaginable suffering in its bosom, left me with a climactic emotion of beauty, overwhelming beauty Beauty of what you ask That of resilience, that of courage, that of insurmountable human spirit which perhaps hits its zenith when it is brutally pinned to the bottommost pit [...]

    11. Just imagine that you are going about your daily life as you always do it s a normal day, everything should be as it always is But then, suddenly, without any forewarning, you go completely blind One second seeing the world as you know it, the next experiencing a complete and unending whiteness Then imagine you go to the trusty health professionals so they can get to the bottom of it the doctor doesn t know what s wrong with you, but you re confident he she will find out and prescribe accordingl [...]

    12. Not at all disturbing, not at all compelling and not at all interesting, Jose Saramago s Blindness only succeeds in frustrating readers who take a moment to let their imagination beyond the page Yes, Saramago s story is a clever idea, and, yes, he creates an intentional allegory to force us to think about the nature of humanity, but his ideas are clearly those of a privileged white male in a privileged European nation Not only do his portrayals of women and their men fall short of the mark, but [...]

    13. Whether you interpret it as an allegory or otherwise, you will find that most of all Blindness is about being human, and the virtues and vices that define the fundamental human nature In a world full of blind people, where the civilization as we know it has completely deteriorated, people are no identified and judged based on their profession, social status, outward appearances etc All that remains to distinguish one person from another is one s voice, and the kind of person one is When people [...]

    14. This book was brutal in the most literal sense of the term It looks at how humans can devolve into savages when put in certain situations, in this case when a white blindness epidemic breaks out and causes people to suddenly lose their sight for no explicable reason.Saramago is a pretty harsh critic, it seems, of organized structures like government or religion and that s most clearly seen in the ways that the affected people create communities, how they respond to crises, and ultimately how the [...]

    15. This is not just a book you read, it reads you too It is not a book that you can shelve, once it is read it stays with you Will you dare pick it up, let it stare into your soul I read this over 10 years ago and it is still very present in my mind It has repeatedly come back to me, I have been recommending it and thinking about it Yes, also worrying a bit .Without spoiling it the story is quickly told blindness spreads like a disease It is terrifying in that it just happens, suddenly life is very [...]

    16. This is definitely a book that people will either love or hate It s just that kind of book Not everyone is going to pick this up and like it Even the people who end up really liking it, while reading it keep finding themselves putting down the book, looking around the room and sighing in discomfort, wondering if they should really continue They will though, and they will once again find themselves fully immersed.Jose Saramago writes this specific story in such a way that you are one of the blind [...]

    17. Perhaps only in a world of the blind will things be what they truly are.Goodness me The horror The chaos These two moist pulpy vibratile objects of anatomy, one on either side of the nose, the window to the soul , are steering wheels of the body, the basis of all order in the fragile human world, without which the purpose of evolutionary biology is moot What would it be like if everyone was struck by an epidemic of blindness, sudden and inexplicable, you and I catching blindness from one another [...]

    18. What kind of a person is it who relishes reviewing the books he hates and quails at the thought of reviewing his five star books It would appear that that could be a description of me Well, the reason s obvious it s great fun to boot a bad book and some bad ideas all around this site, a chance for a few jokes, a laugh, a song and a hand grenade, a couple of pints of Scruttock s Old Dirigible and everyone goes home with a smile on their face, no harm done Not so easy to describe greatness, someth [...]
