Blindness by Jose Saramago
Good Monday everyoneThe next book we will be discussing is Blindness by Jose Saramago. First published in Portuguese in 1995, it’s the story of an unexplained mass epidemic of blindness afflicting nearly everyone in an unnamed city, and the social breakdown that swiftly follows. In a small break from tradition, we have pushed the meeting back to Sunday May 8 due to the multiple bank holidays and holidaying which will be going on the weekends before. If you would like to attend the real-life meet-up you are more than welcome; details on our Facebook page:http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=139312376137531#!/event.php?eid=139312376137531If you would like to take part in our virtual discussions, then you’re in the right place (but please – no plot spoilers just yet). This forum has been awfully quiet so far so it would be good to get some debate going on this one!
