really liked it

Beautiful book. He writes without most punctuation (no quotation marks, commas are the only thing designating when someone else speaks) which can be confusing at times. It might turn off some people, but it forced me to really pay attention; I ended up fond of his “style”.

The idea behind this book is refreshing. Saramago explores the unique situation well and does not shy away from the darker turns humanity might take when dealt with this situation.

(view spoiler)

It’s been a while since I read this, but looked through quickly to find something I remember sticking out to me.
...once I’ve killed them, of course, All those words to say the same sad thing, That’s what these people are like, they’re never quite sure what they mean.

One of the best things I have ever read.
