I wonder what would I do if someone phoned me and told me that she is identical to me from head to toe. I might just ignore her or feel curious enough to confirm the random theory that each person in this world have seven identical non-biological twins.

Anyway it's a typical work of Saramago. It makes you reset your point of view regarding the world, especially the life you live in, and then you know your life would never be the same again.

I wish I can explore more but my brain is a bit hazy out of the fever.


ini buku udah hampir setahun aja di boks, untung yang minjemin gak nagih pake golok hahaha

“Such is our need to shower blame on some distant entity when it is we who lack the courage to face up to what is there before us.”
