Just imagine that you are going about your daily life as you always do It s a normal day nothing out of the ordinary 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 heshe will figure it out and prescribe accordingly And then the doctor goes blind But not just him everyone you have come into contact with is experiencing the same sudden white blindness The condition spreads and takes hold within a few hours soon this contagious blindness is spreading like wildfire and no one knows how to cure itThis book is so frightening and so realistic Blindness is not an alien concept like monsters and ghosts neither are contagious diseases So imagine a disease that prompted sudden blindness that spread from one person to another uicker than the common cold This book feels like a story that could happenOne of the main issues readers have with this if they have any is the writing style It s written in huge blocks of text with little punctuation no uotation marks and many run on sentences It can get a little disorientating but I guess that s the end of the world for you I actually found it incredibly effective in creating the air of blind panic that Saramago clearly wanted to impart People fumbling around in the whiteness hoping no one around means them harm and being powerless to do anything about it if they didSomeone once said You are who you are when no one is watching And in this world no one is watching Fear reigns and some will choose to exploit the fear or succumb to it I thought it was a frightening and believable portrait of the disintegration of societyVery highly recommendedBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube

Ensaio sobre a cegueira Download ¹ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Read Ensaio sobre a cegueira Asylum the inmates burst forth and the last links with a supposedly civilised society are snappedNo food no water no government no obligation no order This is not anarchy this is blindness. 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 HG 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 generations have adapted to life without vision In Saramago s book the only person who can see is the heroine of the book This is a device for telling the story which is the collapse of the social order as with just about all dystopian stories One wonders if given time those blinded by the disease wouldn t adapt as in Country of the Blind And if they did so then resent those who could see and instead of relying on the few sighted people for help despise them for the obvious power they have Perhaps even suspect them of exploiting that power for their gain and the blinds detrimentI read the book and watched the film I didn t find Saramago s style easy to read Extremely long sentences endless paragraphs and an idiosyncratic grammar made me have to concentrate on the reading than the subject matter It was worth it but written in standard English I think I would have enjoyed it The film was a good standard Hollywood film meaning it appeals to the masses has pretty people and no depth and has been designed to make money I uite enjoyed it but am glad I read the book firstAlthough I found this book interesting I didn t find it the cutting edge work of genius that I had read about I don t think I would ever read another Saramago because life is too short to struggle through such a difficult writing style The book took me about three times as long as if it had been written in a usual manner It seems to me to be an ego thing to write in a way that is completely different to everyone else The reason there is a standard way of writing is that it is easy for us all to understand rather than having to adapt to anyone s idiosyncratic idea of spelling and grammar Writing is communication and understanding is key This applies just as much to the reviewers on GR who don t ever use paragraphs and orcapital letters but it s one thing reading a review and another a whole book I m prepared to go along with someone s style if they write good reviews view spoilerreasonably short ones Write an unparagraphed essay length review and you ve lost me hide spoiler

Ensaio sobre a cegueira Download ¹ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Read Ensaio sobre a cegueira A driver waiting at the traffic lights goes blind An opthamologist tries to diagnose his distinctive white blindness but is affected before he can read the textbooks It becomes a contagion. 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 uarantine 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 surreal world of hopelessness filth violence and hate where the true enemy is not their affliction but people themselves which we can see through the eyes of the only person who appears immune to blindness Perhaps only in a world of the blind will things be what they truly are As the blindness epidemic spreads we see the disintegration of society just like we witnessed the destruction of humanity in the uarantine area Excrement covers sidewalks dogs munch on human corpses the blind rot in the stores after futile attempts to find food Even the saints in the churches are blinded The world is a bleak picture of desolation and destruction We don t know why it happened whether it s a test a warning or a punishment Instead we get a nagging haunting feeling that the real blindness was there all along the blindness towards the others the blindness towards our real selves and the physical blindness served as a way to unveil it What was always there but went unseen before because it used to be easy to shrug off Fear Us against them attitude Greed Contempt Hatred Selfishness Love of power Cowardice Apathy Isolation Filth Rape Murder Theft Ignorance Indifference Blaming the victim It was all already there and blindness amplified it And as society decays and falls apart the uestion of what is means to be human comes up 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 Things that made us human are gone Faces don t matter Names don t matter Homes don t matter Possessions don t matter Shame and modesty are gone Medicine is useless Government is useless Morals seem obsolete Empathy is gone Is anything left Anything inside us The difficult thing isn t living with other people it s understanding them The vestiges of humanity are the only rays of hope in this bleak world The girl with the dark glasses taking care of the boy with the suint The man with the eye patch and his love And the doctor s wife the only one who retained her sight Why Was it because she was the most human Or maybe she remained human because she retained her sight Who knows She is uiet and caring leading the blind washing the raped women weeping over the dead but killing if she must She sticks by her morals even if she is forced to violate them She is the guiding light and the uiet hero in this world of darkness whiteness keeping her charges from degradation without expecting anything in return If we cannot live entirely like human beings at least let us do everything in our power not to live entirely like animals The style of this book may not be for everyone disclaimer I loved it The pages are filled margin to margin with solid wall of text There are no dialogue marks and the seemingly mundane bits of everyday speech are separated only by capital letters Sometimes you need to almost read the sentences out loud to get a feel for who is speaking it s very fitting that the book about the blind is better perceived in a non visual medium The sentences are long in a European fashion run on and beautifully punctuated It is not a book to skim it reuires concentration and definitely is not a light read If all of the above does not scare you you should give this one a tryI will finish this review with the plea in the epigraph for this thought provoking eye opening no pun intended book If you can see look If you can look observe Please do Let s try to look past our own blindness and actually SEE
