Review: Blindness

Blindness Blindness by José Saramago
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The story of a blindness epidemic spreading through a city, written in a style distinct to Saramago. Although I read the English translation, the way the characters think and talk are very Portuguese. The philosophies spoken of throughout the novel are very different from what I'm used to, and reek of a continental philosophy influence. Nevertheless, I was captivated by the story's twists and turns.

Not my favorite style of science fiction, but worth the read anyway.
