The Cave is pretty interesting and has Saramago's usual clever writing style, but the central metaphor is a little too pat. I'm also not sure why the discovery of the cave in question is quite such a shattering experience for the characters. We're obviously meant to see the Center as a rebuilding of the Cave, but that seemed too apparent before the cave was discovered. Still, these issues don't really impinge on the story until the end, so most of the book is very enjoyable.
