Reviewer: Jesse Berrett, (Salon)

"More frightening than Stephen King, as unrelenting as a bad dream, José Saramago's 'Blindness' politely rubs our faces in apocalypse....A metaphor like 'white blindness' might easily seem forced or labored, but Saramago makes it live by focusing on the stubbornly literal; his account of a clump of newly blind people trying to find their way to food or to the bathroom provides some surprisingly gripping passages."
