      I chose José Saramago's Seeing as an October read because Brazil held Presidential Elections on October 5th (1st round) and October 26th (2nd round, since no candidate received more than 50% of the valid votes the first time). Brazilian voting system is similar to that of the book's unnamed place in that it is compulsory. We've had the closest race ever, with elected President winning by 51.6% against second place with 48.4%.The book's story begins precisely on Election Day. Only the race wasn' [...]

      Παρά τη χαζομάρα μου να ξεκινήσω από το Περί Φωτισεως και όχι από το Περί τυφλότητος, με αποτέλεσμα να φάω spoilers, δεν μπορώ να μην θαυμάσω την ζοφερή φαντασία του Σαραμαγκου. Τι κι αν είναι απαισιόδοξος; Αγαπώ τη φαντασία και τη γραφή του!!!!!

      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 important.As 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-old truths because in his own words "But truths [...]

      An astonishing political fiction of the 1998 winner of the Nobel literature.It comes to a capital where the people decided to vote "white", more than 80%. What will the government do? We are looking for culprits with spies and informers? Attempting a publicity campaign? And if the army were sent? But vote at its option, is not an inalienable right?It's full of humor and caricatures of politicians and is also full of reflections on democracy, rights and duties as citizens, and even the meaning of [...]

      I've read about half of Saramago's books now. This one is the sequel to Blindness, which was by far my least favorite (brutal, mundane, and mostly pointless). I much preferred "Seeing". I would not consider Blindness a prerequisite either. Of course lots of people disagree with me and loved BlindnessI finished this book continually astonished with the author's ability to put words together but still wondering what it was all about. He narrates like an abstract painter or a dancer, or a magician; [...]

      Karamizah. Muhteşem bir karamizah. Kitap boyunca somut bir karamizahla karşı karşıyayız. Gülmeden edemiyorsunuz. Gülmek diyince öyle kahkalarla değil. Hatta çoğu zaman gülümsemiyorsunuz bile. Ama içiniz kıpır kıpır ediyor. "Ya adam demiş ki bla bla bla hahahaah" diyecek birşeyiniz yok. Ama içinizden hep gülüyorsunuz. Her kitabı böyle Saramago'nun. Dünyada ki aptallıkları çok çok iyi gözlemliyor. O kadar sık rastlanan ve yaşanan aptallıklar ki, "sanırım Sarama [...]

      Seeing is a sequel 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 drawn.I 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 [...]

      تا مدت‌ها تصور می‌کردم ساراماگو نویسنده‌ی میان‌مایه و عامه‌پسندی ست. اما با خواندن «کوری» و دنباله (و نه ادامه‌‌اش) «بینایی»، تصور من کاملا دگرگون شد اگر کوری جامعه را به معرض پرسش‌هایی اخلاقی می‌برد، نقد ساراماگو این بار بر قدرت سیاسی و تلقیات حاکمیت‌ها از دموکراسی ست. [...]

      Questo libro è una via di mezzo tra un saggio e un romanzo.Periodo di elezioni, si va tutti alle urne, il solito "gregge" di persone che esce di casa per andare a votare.Però, nella capitale di un ipotetico stato, lo spoglio delle elezioni rivelano un qualcosa di "strano" se non "impensabile", cioè più del 70% dei votanti ha dato scheda bianca. All'interno del parlamento iniziano le tensioni, si decide di rivotare, risultato: oltre l'80% di schede bianche.Il governo così decide di mettere l [...]

      Quattro anni dopo l’epidemia di cecità che colpì la città, accade che, il giorno delle elezioni, l’83% degli votanti compie un atto sovversivo scegliendo scheda bianca. Cecità? No, ci hanno visto benissimo.Ma anche il Potere ci vede benissimo, e non vuole certo che vengano messi in pericolo il sistema democratico e la stabilità del governo.Bisogna arrivare alla testa della maledetta tenia che ha cospirato contro il governo, trascinarla alla luce e infliggerle il castigo che merita.

      Harder to get into than Blindness. There just isn't a whole lot of action in the first hundred pages of Seeing. A lot of pontification about the electoral process and the mechanics of politics, but nothing much really happens. I feel like Saramago was a bit too in love with his satire for a bit too long in the narrative, but that's just my take. It does pick up after that, and comes to a conclusion that is probably right for the book, but one that I didn't exactly love. ******HERE BE SPOILERS: B [...]

      Those looking for a sequel to Blindness will be surprised. While Seeing carries with it some of the same characters as Blindness, it is an entirely different beast of a book. Rather than the touching tale of survival that made its predecessor so acclaimed, Seeing is satire of the highest quality.How does a government respond when 83% of voters in the capital cast blank votes? With typical heavy-handedness and increasing degrees of ridiculousness. There must be a conspiracy at work, the governmen [...]
