A sudden and unexplained epidemic of blindness strikes in an unnamed city. Highly contagious, it spreads uncontrollably despite the quarantining of those first affected. Rich or poor, almost no one can escape this invisible enemy, and societal breakdown is inevitable. Saramago shows us the best and worst of humanity in this allegory for our times. It poses more questions than it answers and you will ponder on it long after you have reached the last page.
Not bedtime reading.
