A long book built on the success of "Blindness"

by Rotem on Jun 21, 2008

"Seeing" appears to be a sequel to amazing and interesting previous Saramago book - Blindness. As Blindness is overwhelming and thought provoking, seeing builds on the Blindness's success and doesn't add much. 4 years after the Blindness epidemic, a local election is run - 83% of the people vote white votes (i.e. - don't pick any party) and the government starts working hard on finding out who is responsible for this so-called anti-democratic act ... all this is connected through a long, winding tale to the Blindness epidemic but lives the reader tired and feeling he has spent his precious time on a useless story... Stick to rereading Blindness and forget reading Seeing - Some things are better left in the dark.
