In this short review, there's no way I can even mention all the topics that would make this an interesting book for discussion. It's definitely not light reading, both due to the unusual writing style and the disturbingly graphic content. The white blindness, as an illness, is never much explained, but it is used as a tool to examine how many different people would react to finding themselves in the world the blindness created. It did not explore only the negative, but also the positive, as some of the survivors struggled to preserve at least their small community. I'm glad I ended up reading Blindness, and now I'm really curious to see how well the English film represented the novel.
