While he is mostly loyal to the doctor’s wife, he helps the whole group by protecting them all from packs of dogs who are becoming more feral by the day. Edit Did You Know?

Blindness () – IMDb

Here is a line from the book: The interaction between the guards and those interned are stilted and not intriguing, like you think they’d be if you held a gun on your next door neighbor. While certainly interesting a Let me start by saying how ridiculous it feels to critique the work of an author deemed cecitaa of the Nobel Prize for Literature.

The premise behind them doing so in the hallways is that no one can see them, so there’s no way into shaming them to do it elsewhere There was sadamago science whatsoever.

It is possible that I’m a bit of a hypocrite and a chauvinist. This led to very large, universal block paragraphs. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. For pages and pages, they talked about sharing food rations, how they couldn’t trust anyone, cecitaa complained about how dirty the hospital was.

Obviously none of that prowess spilled over into this book. Also, I can’t shake a sense of pervasive boredom, sinking like a milky sea over my brain whenever I try to read this. View all 7 comments. Archived from the original on Redeemed by a few searing and tragic images, but not much else to recommend here.


No, I don’t think it’s the translators’s fault. It is an interesting premise, initially well reported, that deteriorates into a sadist’s fun house that gets burned down and turns its former occupants into half-witted philosophers of sightlessness.

This is the only book recommended by John Darnielle on his good reads page and that is why I read it but I would rather read his novel Wolf in White Van than this one.

It’s simply not good writing – that sort of scene does not require any effort to make the reader cectia the character. Maybe it was the translation? They are reunited by pure chance in the quarantine. I don’t know many men who would say different after serious consideration. Saramago is a talented writer, no doubt. He is one of saramavo principal members of the first ward – the ward with all of the original internees.

This stage version was adapted and directed by Joe Tantalo. He is also the main architect of the failed attack on the ward of hoodlums hoarding the food rations.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. He is a good writer for the right “reader. Anxiety over the availability of food, caused by delivery irregularities, acts to undermine solidarity; and lack of organization prevents the internees from fairly distributing food or chores. The other thing that I enjoyed about this book is that it is essentially post-apocalypse fiction, which I love. No vengeance, no attack, no blame between man and wife?

Then Saramago marches them, broken, covered in blood and semen, and in one case dead, out of one room and back to their husbands and companions. Also, one of the female inmates has her sight and sarmaago armed – she has a tremendous tactical advantage over the blind aggressors.


There is also more shitting, walking barefoot through shit, crawling in shit, etc. They all are “cured” within 24 hours! A blind sociopath with a gun. Why cut off contact with the outside world?

Cecità by José Saramago (2 star ratings)

This book was a major challenge for me to finish. A woman whose sight is unaffected by the plague follows her afflicted husband to quarantine.

Gruesome disaster porn with an overstretched premise. He is among the first to be quarantined along with his wife. Edit Details Official Sites: His work recalls Garcia Marquez for its saramag reach Blindness is a chore to read both because of the bulky form I however liked the unique grammatical style which lends the book its breathless quality and the disturbing content. As it was – there were no likeable characters and no reason to read on to the end.

Blindness is a neat idea society suddenly hit by a communicable plague of blindness but the sociology is weak and science is absent altogether. First the girl with dark glasses.

They are going to use this robbery as a leaping-off point for the story’s apex. Hygiene, living conditions, and morale degrade horrifically in a very short period, mirroring the society outside.

Mother of the Boy Mitchell Nye And the church, it too fails to see, to help, to care. I figured this out pretty early in the book and afterwards the lack of punctuation started to become annoying.
