Blindness (Blindness #1) by José Saramago, Giovanni Pontiero (Translator)
Introducing Thursday Quotables where I share quotes from my current and/or throwback read! I’ve been meaning to put these kinds of posts out. But I haven’t got the time to actually write one. Sooo that’s my lame excuse.. Moving on to the main event.
“I don’t think we did go blind, I think we are blind, Blind but seeing, Blind people who can see, but do not see.”
“The difficult thing isn’t living with other people, it’s understanding them.”
“When all is said and done, what is clear is that all lives end before their time.”
“We are so afraid of the idea of having to die… that we always try to find excuses for the dead, as if we were asking beforehand to be excused when it is our turn…”
This is one of my favorite books, so be nice. And the last time I read this was like 5 years or so. And I loved every thing about it. It was way back before I had Goodreads, before this blog. So I actually don’t have any review up to show you. But believe me when I say, it changed my life. It changed my perspective of life. Made me realize the depths and complexity Adult Fiction is capable of. (Cheesy, I know)
It has a sequel (Seeing), actually. But I’m kind of scared, because of how good this one is. I think it’s quite impossible to surpass my expectation. I have no idea when to read it. Or if I have plans to read it. All I know is I have it; so when the time comes, I have all the opportunity to go for it.
And it also has a movie. LIKE WHERE WAS I WHEN THIS HAPPENED? This picture could actually pass for Walking Dead. I mean, look at this. It’s like their asking to be eaten or something. But I haven’t watched it either. I just don’t want it to spoil the moment. But hey, the probability of me watching the movie is higher than me reading the sequel. I just can’t see it. Like don’t you get that? I’m just too scared that it might not be as good as I wanted it to be. I sound whiny, hahaha.
Have you read this one? Or can you relate or connect with the quotes?? Do you feel me?? Comment down below and share! 🙂
