really liked it
bookshelves: 2008, literature, post-apocalyptic-dystopian
Read in November, 2008

I give "Blindness" four stars simply for the artistry of its creation. The story itself is unbelievably depressing until the very end. But, it's so poetic and dreamlike. It's rich in symbolism. I can't say that this is one of the very best books I've ever read, but it is very good.
