Blindness felt really strong – the general vibe of the book is still easy to recall for me years later. The epidemic blindness that befalls everybdoy in contact with a victim is terrifying, but the terror isn’t overdone. It’s humanized, low-key, loving even. I’m glad I read this book.

Further Reading

A book that’s often paired due to a similar theme and feeling is The Plague – though I prefer Blindness, to be honest.
