The plot is very contrived, and there’s an infuriating underestimation of human resourcefulness on the part of the writer. The protagonists of this new novel, a policeman and the woman who was able to maintain her sight in the novel Blindness, are samples of the moral heights that these anonymous citizens are able to reach when they decide to exert their freedom.
Yeah, not even gonna touch that one. He’s got a city where blindness is suddenly contracted and quickly spread indiscriminately.
They had arrived at the entrance to the building, two women from the cegudra looked on inquisitively at the sight of their neighbour being led by the arm but neither of them thought of asking, Have you got something in your eye, it never occurred to them nor would he have been able to reply, Yes, a milky sea. That’s it, I’m done!!

Also by Jose Saramago. He also does not typically separate paragraphs. The first blind man’s wife went blind. Rating this book on a scale was very difficult because it was, strangely, a dd that I thought was phenomenally good but I would never recommend to anyone.
Give me a single remarkable character trait, any inkling of depth, or hell, any sign that the characters mean something.
There’s a few overwrought instances of ceguerz value like the gang rape scene, but come on, this is dystopia, shock is a required element, but shock should be used as a crescendo, like the top of so many waves, in the overall rolling tide of the book, not used, as it was here, to tease the reader into the next chapter. Then, our small group of characters voyage out into the world looking for food and shelter. But does she prevent them from happening? In the end, the story feels empty.
Just don’t do it. Saramago, a writer who has become the awakening conscience ceguerra a time blinded by the cebuera of power, sends out an alert: Never mind the fact that, with the blindness, crops have probably failed.
The whole city, maybe the whole country, already went blind.

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.
But nothing really worked for me Then the hooker girl is in love with the old man with the eyepatch by the end of the book. When I got to the end of the book, I was very grateful I’d only skimmed this beast because this is the core of Saramago’s idea: Each of these has to be believable, and for a great daramago, one of more of these 3 subjects has to be exceptionally well-drawn.
Once inside the building, the blind man said, Many thanks, I’m sorry for all the trouble I’ve caused you, I can manage on my own now, No need to apologise, I’ll come up with you, I wouldn’t be easy in my mind if I were to leave you here.

I couldn’t keep up with who said what, which does amount to the effect of blindness. What a bunch of bullshit.
The Doc’s Wife washed their clothes and shoes. It has no artistic value, but I do have to admit that I can see he may have wanted to make the story and thus the layout more impersonal and sober. One of the women in my book club described this book as tormenting her, and I think that’s an apt descriptor. Unlike Lord of the Flies ‘ exciting story which I lovedI had a big problem with the pacing of this book.
Saramago does explicitly call out these differences, noting that people who are blind from actual medical conditions are better off than the inhabitants of his dystopia.

It’s like you’re watching a movie, and in the first scene where they show the villain, he crosses the street and stomps on a puppy.
It’s offensive and gratuitous. You read me correctly. I think Albert Camus did a much better job of depicting human nature during an epidemic in “The Plague” though I did f That’s it, I’m done!! This “blindness” snsayo like a virus, and soon everybody has it.
