    Set in an unnamed city once again Jose Saramago creates an impossible sitiuation in order to write about the human condition Jose Saramago was a humble genius one of the rare few writers who could talk about the trival and mundane and make them seem so magical and importantAs usual he sets out to explore and joust with preconceived universal truths and every day notions and exposes them flips them on their heads re affirms familiar and age

Ank not spoiled simply blank National law decrees the election should be repeated eight days later The result is worse eighty three per cent of the votes are blank The incumbent government receives eight per cent and the opposition even less The authorities seized with panic decamp from the capital and place. Seeing is a seuel to Blindness and it is essential to read Blindness first Blindness introduces the character the doctor s wife who is one of the great characters in literature You have to read about her in Blindness before you read about her in Seeing where she remains a wonderful character but less fully drawnI think Blindness is a great book a classic and it has stayed with me since I put it down So I resisted reading Seeing That s just me And through 70 pages of Seeing I was unimpressed Sometimes Saramago can be difficult and I don t just mean his funky punctuation It starts out as a Kafka esue satire of government and politics and that can be pretentious But slowly certain characters started to develop an interior minister as the epitome of evil and a police superintendent torn between his job responsibilities and what he knows to be right The pawn in this inevitable conflict is of course the doctor s wife There are many other characters all nuanced all symbolic all important and memorable Beware the man with the blue tie with white dots Run from him And I do not have a dog But if I did have one I would name him Constant and he would take away my tears
