It’d be major news around the world, that’s for sure. The majority of this book was torture to read. Do that, and you’re in for even bigger disappointments, the novel is horribly written; no character daa up, juvenile dialogs, complete ignorance of politics and economy and a chattered storyline.

One long, rambling parable with no real characters to identify with.

Every time death sends him his letter, it returns. He writes in extremely long, run-on sentences, using a copious amount of commas. However, in an effort to kill more kindly, death will now send a letter to those about to perish, giving them a week to prepare for their end.

The author doesn’t even attempt to resolve that in anyway. The only way you could tell someone else has started talking it by a comma followed by a random capitalised letter like you normally find after a full stop. Each chapter was like a 20 page run on sentence.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Yes, just that more nothing special about. I’m glad I didn’t read it first. Conversations were the worst – a big round table discussion between lots of people is made up of one single sentence!

At every turn, Saramago presents us with a joke smashed by rambling anecdote, an observation drowned by irrelevance or a plot twist stifled by non sequitur. The story of a country where people stop dying, they still age, and get injured, and eventually become a lump of nonfunctional meat, but they still don’t die, however that’s supposed to make sense. But it just inrermitencias work with me.

Is the funeral home industry doomed? Naime, prevod naslova me mnooogo svrbi. If I’d been gripped by the narrative I wouldn’t have minded this, and I felt in Blindness that it added to the experience.
