Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
A city is struck by an epidemic of "white blindness" which quickly runs rampant. Authorities confine the blind to a vacant mental hospital under armed guard. There, chaos reigns. Finally, the compound is set ablaze and its "inmates" escape into a deserted city littered with corpses. The only witness to this nightmare is a doctor's wife who faked blindness to join her husband in the camp. Blindness is a stunning novel of loss and disorientation in the modern world, and man's will to survive against all odds.
"More frightening than Stephen King, as unrelenting as a bad dream, JosÚ Saramago's 'Blindness' politely rubs our faces in apocalypse....A metaphor like 'white blindness' might easily seem forced or labored, but Saramago makes it live by focusing on the stubbornly literal; his account of a clump of newly blind people trying to find their way to food or to the bathroom provides some surprisingly gripping passages."
