Another One Down

Blindness by Jose Saramago

Wow. I'd been hearing a lot about Saramago in the last few years, and I can't say I'm disappointed. This is an amazing novel about blindness on all levels. It is a brilliant allegory about fear, selfishness, and redemption. I can't think of a novel I've read lately that is more intellectually rewarding. However, if you don't much care for heavy intellectual effort in reading, take a pass. Otherwise, Blindness gets my highest recommendation.
